Lots of people have had this problem and it's either resolved with a firmware update or you are unlucky enough to have one of the many fake R4's out there. However, given that Nintendo have been suing left, right and centre over the R4 it would be silly for FixYa to help you further with this.
You may have perfectly legitimate reasons for using an R4 such as running open source 'home-brew' but it is, at the end of the day, a device that makes copyright theft easy and Nintendo are understandably unhappy about the millions of dollars they lose daily because of devices like this.

My ds freezes when loading the R4, or it says that there is no game in the ds slot


Stuck on Loading Screen This usually indicates that the software kernel on the micro sd memory card has become corrupted. It can also happen if the micro sd memory card is overloaded with games, music and video files etc. The solution is to reinstall the kernel software on the micro sd card and ensure the micro sd memory card is not overloaded. Leave about 25% memory free.
download SDformatter and format the sd card with that, place all the files on there, none in folders..
  • Download the correct software kernel from the manufacturers website
  • Unzip the files using a suitable programme such as Win Zip or 7 Zip.
  • Open the folder containing the unzipped files and copy the 4 files (Moonmemo, Moonshl2, R4iMenu and R4.dat) to the root of the memory card.
  • At this point put the memory card into your R4 card. Start your console and ensure the R4 card is operating correctly.
  • You may have to run an upgrade file at this point

Yes you have to prepare your R4 before load it in your DS...
there are a lot´s of aplication and homebrew for DS that you can download in the web...
emulator, for genesis, nes, SNES, sega master system, and even NEO GEO MVS.
try to download a DS Pack torrent with everything!
and install in the R4...Good Luck!

DS Lite with R4 Card: Games keep freezing up - please help!


You have to put the R4 v1.18 kernel on the memory card for it to work.
R4 web site is http://r4ds.cn/
In the download section is the r4 manual follow that and you should be ok.

Try a more upto date firmware from R4 SITE,
Also did you format the SD card first? do a full format with fat16 if possible.
