Don't bother with Kernel v1.24 i use kernel v1.18 downlad from http://www.r4ds.cn/download/r4ds.html and click on the "R4 V1.18 kernel (English/French/Korean)" un compress with Winrar and put on SD/TF card (delete any previous kernels you may have.

Will also need the "Moonshell 1.71 for R4" on same page as kernel v1.18 just scroll down a little lower.

Get a free account on romulation.net and download whatever games you want


Happy playing.

SOURCE: insert the R4DS in the DS lite and it just says "loading" and thats it ?

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.

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.

What files/folders (besides games) should be on the Micro SD?


check the card itself, look for a website listed on the card and download the fw from there. if your card doesn't have a site try multiple vendors of the r4ds card. its a tedious process but all of them are different even though it may seem that every r4ds is the same.
if all else fails buy a new one.
dragonds.com is a great site.

R4 Problem loading error


Get this file extract the file with winrar, and copy the files to the DS card. The file structure should have is:
Files
  • _DS_MENU.DAT
  • _DS_MSHL.NDS
Folders
  • _system_
  • moonshl
You should now put your .nds files onto the root of the card also, and hopefully all should work OK for you

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.)
