SOURCE: when turning on ds lite with an r4 it has a red

Hello there,

It looks like you don't have the correct software installed on your R4 card. Which software you'll need depends on the version of the R4 card you actually have. The following webpage should help you determine which version of the R4 card you actually have and therefore what you need to download:

http://www.r4dsrevolution.co.uk/content/download-r4-software

If you are looking for a reliable place to buy DS and DSi cards fromthat will stock originals, I'd recommend using http://www.NDS-Gear.com(I've used them myself). They test every card before sending whichmeans you won't receive dud cards, and more importantly they havesupport before AND after your purchase by people who reply very quicklyand in perfect English. Some of these dodgy websites take 4-6 weeks todeliver and never answer e-mails, so I'm glad these guys are different.Oh, and they guarantee to dispatch by the next working day, whichalways helps with speed and all. And they're recommended by a lot ofthe DS card help sites, too.

Good luck!

SOURCE: new R4 card wont work !!!!

First make sure you have the correct kernel for the card. Go to the website where you purchased it and download the current firmware. Next copy all of that onto the micro sd card. Build folders in you sd card, very simple right click...new folder... enter... then label them correctly .. Label one movies... music... games.. etc... then put your files into the correct folders.. Another common error is that people use to high of a sd card.... some r4 cards only accept up to a 2gb micro card If you use one that is too big it will stick on the loading screen ... If none of this works reload all the software onto the card and start from scratch... hope this helps

SOURCE: when i start my r4-sdhc CARD IT COMES UP IN RED

You have not put the files on the card right, did you put them on one by one, if not they wont open, their should be four or five files for a r4,they have to be unziped, then have to go on one by one, then unzip the games, then put them on one by one, then if you have done that right it should work.

My DS Lite don't start.On the top screen came an red icon with the message:menu?I have an R4 adapter with micro SD card.


Your problem is not related to your DSlite, but with your R4. Somehow you managed to delete the R4 firmware from the microSD card.

R4 does not load just says ''?'' and ''MENU'' in red writing in a red


Hello Jade,

A loading screen freeze usually means that there's the wrong version of the software installed. You have to make sure it was made for your specific model of R4, and there are a few out there. Check the packaging of your card for a manufacturer's website.

If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version, or need to upgrade to a R4 SDHC you can get a genuine card there too. http://www.dscardworld.com I managed to find this site after I got burned at a few others.

Loved having my emails responded to because I had loads of questions, and they were quick to ship it. They test each card before sending them. US based support and shipping I believe.

Best of luck!

My r4 card did work but now doesnt i just get menu? in a red box that looks like a sd card


Hey there,

The "Menu?" screen is unfortuantely a sign that you have a fake R4 card, because the real one should have "Loading..." as an error message. The "Menu?" screen is a copy from the DSTT firmware and shouldn't be on an R4 card.

You can buy genuine cards from either DSCardWorld.com or NDS-Gear.com - although nds-gear is a bit cheaper shipping wise if you live outside the U.S.

Good luck!

Im noty getting this....everyime i load a firmware on my r4i gold it always just gets me to a screen with the red memory stick with a question mark and ''menu'' inside...i dont know what im doing wrong...


Hello,

A red menu icon freeze usually means that there's the wrong version of the software installed. You have to make sure it was made for your specific model of R4, and there are a few out there.

The right R4 software can be hard to track down, that's why I went with the iEdge card . There's only one to find :)

Most reputable vendors like http://www.dscardworld.com won't even stock the R4i Gold as it's proven to be unreliable in the past.
