it sounds like a software problem.
follow the following instructions.
Please can you try and reformat the 2gb micro sd card in your pc and copy firmware from the CD back onto the 2gb micro sd card following the instructions below.be warned that formating will remove even the games from the card so make sure you have a backup of the games saved to your computer. any saved games will also be erased.
To format the 2gb micro sd card 1. Insert sd card into usb stick and into usb port. 2. Close autoplay screen if it appears. 3. Right click on removeable drive. (Eg D, E, F or J etc) that appeared on screen in computer window. 4. Left click on format in menu and when format window appears, tick quick format box and select ok. This will erase all content on the sd card and remove any corrupt firmware.
To reload firmware 1. Insert cd into pc cd/dvd drive. 2. Open cd drive on screen and copy and paste the files and folders from the system/english 1.18 folder on the cd to the removeable drive that the usb and micro sd card are in. The folders that you will copy are "_system_" and "moonshl" and the files will be "menu.dat" and "mshl.nds". 3. Once copied, check removeable drive to ensure files and folders have copied over. 4. Remove usb stick from pc and insert sd card back into R4. R4 menu should appear on DS screen.this normaly sorts this out.paul
What i would suggest is to take the micro sd card and delete the menu folder and the menutt.dat and anything else associated with the main menu settings. Drag and drop the games folder or games and saves to the desktop and then format the sd card in FAT32.
I appreciate this may seem a little extreme but i have had quite a lot of experience with NDS flash cartridges and the problem you describe usually happens when the menu.tt file becomes corrupt.
Once the sd card is formatted, re install all the nesessary software (you should have these 3 files on the sd card :
TTmenu folder ttmenu.dat ttmenu.sys but, DO NOT put any games onto it until you have placed it into the nds and turned it on allowing the TTcard to build a menu for the games to be loaded from.
apparently m3 dont do upgrades now but this might help http://www.m3-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=312
basically it converts the r4 ds menu.dat to work on m3 simply (may work for m3 real) so now all you have to do is go to r4 download site and download latest version. 1.18 from here http://www.r4dscart.com/r4-software.html (select the english update) then patch ur dat file replace it back to where you took it from before patching and then copy all 4 files ( _system_ moonshi _ds_menu.dat _ds_mshl.nds) into the root of micro sd card. advise you to copy any files/games you have on your mem card then copy the games over to your newly installed firmware. oh by the way in the link i provided on how2 patch the ds_menu.dat it might be bit vague on where you put the ds_menu.dat file to patch it, all you do is drag and drop it into the PATCH app thats inside the "r4 to m3 patcher" folder. post a reply to let me know how you got on
To format any drive just insert the memory, right click over your memory drive in My PC window, and there should be an option to Format this drive, formatting will erase all the card contents so make a backup in your computer first.
When you click on "format" a window will appear to chose FAT or FAT32 (try FAT32 first then if not working try FAT), dont have to do nothing on the size option, write a label for the drive if you want, not needed, let Quick Format clear, click on start button and you'll see a proccess bar, when it finish it tell you and you have a formatted drive.
Put the sistem files and one rom to test again in the memory, test it on your DS. Be sure you have the right files for your card, the www.R4ds.cn site only supports R4 cards, not R4 III, R4 SDHC or any fake non R4 hardware.
HI REFORMAT THE CARD FAT 32,DOWNLOAD LATEST FIRMWARE ON R4 SITE WHICH IS 1.18 VERSION, THEN PUT ON CARD SYSTEM, MOONSHL,DS MENU DAT,DS MSHL NDS,IT THEN SHOULD BE OK,UNLESS YOU HAVE THE NEW R4 CARD WHICH SUPPORTS SDHC,THEN YOU WANT VERSION 1.19.
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!!!!
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!!!
