Hi

first of all , check your r4 version.
there are many.

have you put the right firmware on your r4?
original : http://r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html

r4 revolution pro : http://www.r4dspro.com/download_en.html
r4 ultra and de luxe : http://www.r4deluxe.com/en/down.asp
r4 III : http://www.r4dsl.net/download-en.asp

after that it should work.

(or maybe you should format your memory card first.)

The R4 will freeze if it encounters any files it "doesn't like". Format the memory card and put JUST the menu files and one game on it. If it still doesnt work, try a new memory card. Make sure your memory card is SD and not SDHC, the latter is not compatible with the R4.

If all this doesnt work, then your R4 is probably a dud.

How to add a games


hi,
read this
If you've already downloaded Free Nintendo DS Lite Game Roms but still do not have any idea how to install and play with it, then do not fret. There is a simple procedure in doing it.
After this complete step by step tutorial, your NDS Rom games will be automatically copied into your R4DS and you'll be able to play like a pro. I assume that you use Windows XP or higher and you have sufficient computer skills to follow me through.
1. Unzip the zip file you've downloaded using your favorite unzip application. Keep it in a safe place for future use.
2. Remove your microSD card from the R4DS cartridge.
3. Insert your microSD card to the microSD USB adaptor that you got when you bought your R4DS.
4. Insert the microSD USB adaptor (where your microSD card is inserted) to your PC's USB port. Windows will automatically detect it.
5. Go to My Computer. You'll see a new drive in it. That's your microSD card. Double click it.
6. Copy the .NDS file that you unzipped on step 1 and paste it on the drive that you opened on step 5. Never paste it to any directory. Just paste it on the root directory. You only need to copy the .NDS files, no more, no less, just ignore the other files that goes with the zip file.
7. Safely remove your USB drive when done copying all the NDS files. I guess, you know how to do this. If not, ask anyone around you. icon_smile.gif8. Remove the microSD card from the microSD USB adaptor.
9. Insert the microSD card to your R4DS cartridge.
10. Insert your R4DS cartridge to your Nintendo DS Lite.
11. Turn on your Nintendo DS Lite. If you followed all the directions above correctly, you'll be able to see the copied games on the list of games on your R4DS now. Enjoy!
Of course, please note that copying game ROMs to your R4DS is illegal, unless you have the original copy of the game and you're just copying the backup file. R4DS is definitely NOT illegal, it's how you handle and deal with it that could make it illegal. So just make sure that you're copying a back-up of your games. Enjoy!

Both of my kids have DS Lites. Both systems aren't recognizing that there is a game inserted. Sometimes (maybe 1 out of 30 times inserted) we will get lucky and it will work so I know it isn't the games....


You really shouldn't. This is a design flaw, worthy of a class action lawsuit comparable to the one Microsoft faced for the Xbox 360 RROD fiasco. With the old ds, the gold contacts would bend and break over time from games being inserted and ejected and such. Nintendo "rectified" the problem by adding a spring to force it into the right place. Pretty stupid on their R&D dept.'s part. Forcing electronics only breaks them over time. The average lifespan of a DS lite is about a year. If you bought your kids their systems at about the same time, that would explain why they both dont work. I recommend ditching the DS. Either invest in PSPs, as they are more versatile, and you can pirate games on them, so you don't have to pay $60 for a game because you can download them on the internet. But if your kids really want to keep the DS, I have a suggestion. My sister has a lite, and has had it since it first came out. If you pay the $75 to get it fixed, it could be cheaper in the long run, as it will never break again if you do what i'm about to tell you, and you'll never pay for another game again. My sister prevented this on her Ds Lite because she never ejects her cartridge. she has something called an R4 chip. Its really easy to use. the R4 is a cartridge that has a slot that can house a micro SD card. You can actually download games to this chip, for free from various places on the internet. And the DS will never break again from wear and tear, because you dont eject the R4 if you want more games, you eject the micro SD from the R4. Shoot me an email at edchen111@gmail.com if you want to know more about this. No i do not work for R4, i sincerely believe this course of action will save you the most money. Here is R4s website. Take a look.

I just got a new ds lite and had a r4 card before. in my old ds it works fine but when i insert it into my ds lite it comes up with the ds menu and says insert game? WTF? HELP!!


If you bought a DSi w/ the camera the R4DS will NOT work. And you have to get a Gold R4DS-i to be compatible w/ the new DSi 1.4 firmware. Even if you bought a new one it is possible the new DS has updated firmware to prevent the use of the R4.

It is possible that your R4 needs to be updated to a newer version. I would start there first.

Nothing sees my R4DS card!


Yes,

First you need to make sure you format your Micro-SD card in Windows to FAT32 format. Then load the latest software files onto your micro-sd card. You can get these from http://www.r4ds.cn/download/r4ds.html

Then in the root directory of the MicroSD card, make a folder called "Games" (without the ""s) and place your .nds backup files/ROMs in the Games folder.
