R4DS Problem Hi Just wondering if you may know how to fix my problem, i have an R4 card i downloaded the lastest fireware(1.18) for it but when i put the card into my DS Console it comes up R4 on the top screen, but on the bottom screen it comes up a text type box with chinese writing in it, and none of the functions work. The card use to work fine before i loaded the lastest software, i was wondering do you think i may need to format the SD card and if so how do i go about doing this. Look foward to hearing from you soon, can't get this bloody card to work, very frustrated.................

    Thanks for your advice, i downloaded the firmware again and also checked my DS console the language is set on English, but the same thing keeps happening, i am starting to think that maybe the R4 card is stuffed. Is it at all possible for the cards to change language ( go back to a default mode) itself as they are all made in china.

    I have tried everything don't know what else to do......... just wondered if you have anymore suggestions.



    Thanks

No all the R4 are different, like the fake one, real one, if you get the fake r4 and loard the real/ offical firewarm, you will have proble anyway. and if you get the chinese version (cheaper) and loard the english firmware........ i any problem also.

in your case, i can;t just download the english version, i need to do something,becasue you have the chinese version r4, plan a , download the chinese version 1.18..............
plan b download the english version 1.18, but "exchange only 1 file" i don't remeber which one, so you will have the enlgish version 1,18 firmware loard in your chinese version R4 chip.

Sounds like you have the wrong firmware on it mate... you wont need to format the crad, just delete the firmware folder and put another on it, you can get the firmwares from r4 site, heres the link to the latest ENGLISH firmware http://r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html
let me know how you get on.

Also, just as a tester, take the card out and turn the ds on, make sure the language is still set to english in the main options for the DS

    All the R4 cards are the same, its the firmware that determines the the language.

    Have you tried an older version of the firmware? say 1.6 or 1.7?

    Hayden,
    Just as a followup, what card is it exactly that you are using?
    DSTT, M3 or R4?

    I had a thought, if you have a fake card, some of the new firmwares will not work on them.

Everytime i put a sd card on the ds the game always stops


This tends to happen when one of three things comes into play.

1. The SD card was not properly formated before putting R4 software on it.
2. The R4 Software is out of date and needs to be updated.
3. The Rom is corrupt and should be reinstalled.

I'm not sure what kinda of Card you are using in your DSL but here is a link to the R4 Downloads Section: (NOTE: ONLY USE IF YOU HAVE THIS BRAND)

Kernal 1.24 wont load on my r4ds card


Don't bother with Kernel v1.24 i use kernel v1.18 downlad from http://www.r4ds.cn/download/r4ds.html and click on the "R4 V1.18 kernel (English/French/Korean)" un compress with Winrar and put on SD/TF card (delete any previous kernels you may have.

Will also need the "Moonshell 1.71 for R4" on same page as kernel v1.18 just scroll down a little lower.

Get a free account on romulation.net and download whatever games you want


Happy playing.

R4DS Card Software problem


Try downloading kernel v1.18 from the site indicated in the box that you received your R4 in, it's the one I've been using for 6 months now and I've had no problems. Ensure that you follow their instructions as to how to install it and all should be OK.
