Question about Nintendo DS Console
I dropped my Nintendo DS... while my R4 (and 2GB MicroSD) and my Rumble Pack was in the respective slots. While my DS seems fine, my R4 and Rumble Pack are another matter. First off, while my R4 loads the first menu (for Games, Multimedia, and Boot Slot-2) like it always has, the selection of any results in a blank screen (the color of my theme settings). I believe the information on my MicroSD is unharmed because I have checked the data on my computer (which confirmed it was still 'intact') and by being able to alter my theme settings on the DS; I believe it may be the R4 itself. The second problem is my Rumble Pack; prior to this incident, it would give a short rumble each time I started up my DS. However, the thing is now possessed. Upon starting up my DS it will vibrate like crazy for a brief second (or two).
Oops! First I would try copying your entire SD contents to a folder on your computer. This will validate if all files are in tact and readable. Then copy them back (replacing them). it could also be that the 'drop' jarred something loose inside your DS. Can you play a legit DS game using the original card? If not, you may have an internal issue. You can goto Nintendo's site (http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/dslite_repair_home.jsp), put in your serial number to see if you're still under warranty. I believe for a "white-screen" issue (according to their website) you can mail it back & get it fixed for free. Did you try putting your R4 into someone else's DS?
The issue with the Rumble pack seems to be consistent with an internal issue with your DS.
