Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

N5 card Hi, I have bought an N5 card & 2gig micro SD card. Downloaded the latest software from the N5 site and I have some games. I have put the software & games onto the card but when it shows on the DS and you go to select a game it says ' This types of files currently not allowed to operate ' I seem to have followed the instructions but I am stuck as to how to actually play a game? Any help would be great. Thanks Dylan.

Sounds like you need a more upto date firmware or the games you have are not correct.
they should be *.nds files.

Why won't my computer recognise my n5? It keeps saying it needs to format it, but it won't! What do I do?


Not sure why you are connecting it to a computer?
You should be connecting a micro sd card with the card reader provided, so you can copy and paste software including the N5 system software to the micro sd card. Then put the micro sd card in the n5 then the n5 in the ds lite. (the card should show up in my computer and you should be able to format it with FAT32 system)

please post further comments if I am not understanding the problem correctly

Unable to read sd card


Hi grecko, Hope this helps, I've just bought a 4gb memory card for my daughter's ds so she can fit 58-60 games instead of 28 on a 2gb memory card and have downloaded and put a file onto the memory card before loading games onto it.

Supercard DS one have a site where you can download the files you need and it gives help. Guess it's the same if using an R4 supercard too but I bought an R4 card for partner preloaded with software.

Prob loading free ds games off pc.


When you say, "Keeps Loading Up..." what do you mean?

If it boots as if they were no N5 card, then I would suggest the N5 card or Micro SD card isn't seated properly and making contact with all the game slot contacts.

N5DS - How do i use it?


1. If you don't already have a micro sd card or reader, then get one.
2. Go to homepage of N5DS (http://www.dsn5.com/EN-N5/n5-en.htm) set language to english on site, go to download, and then download update v 1.19 kernel(English) to desktop.
3. If you don't have winrar to extract rar files go get the english version at rarlabs.com and install it.
4. Extract the kernel for n5ds by right clicking it and click extract. Extract it to the desktop. open the folder until you see the folder with a bunch of files like .dat moonshell and stuff. then connect your micro sd reader to your computer and then put it in micro sd card. Once your computer installs it drag all those files into the micro sd card. Then when you turn it on it should work. What games were you talking about? like nintendogs and stuff? those are commercial roms and I cannot provide ayou a link to. Or was it homebrew games?

N5 Help me


listen guys, if u have n5 and u are using a 4gb SDHC you need to upgrade the firmware to 1.18 which is the latest right now. I had the same problem, updated the kernel and it works dam good. Here is the link.

http://www.linfoxdomain.com/nintendo/ds/

click on N5 and download the v1.18

try doing the same method for r4 but use the r4 kernel. Having the latest kernel can save u lots of problems.

Nintendo ds N5 card stuck on loading screen


found solution to R5:
download latest firmware (1.19 at present) and unzip
format MicroSD to Fat or Fat32
Copy firmware onto MSD in this order ONE BY ONE !!!!!!
This step is very important!!!!
1. DS_MENU.DAT
2. _AXMENU.DAT
3. _DS_MSHL.DNS
4. _SYSTEM_ folder
5. moonshl folder
Then load your .nds files into the root.
I've had absolutely no problems with this card so far and if
installed correctly it works brilliantly!!!
