Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
There are a few games on a friends R4 card, duno what she has pressed, but when you go to chose a game, it just says saver/bookmark, then it asks you if you weant to backup this save? the old backup wil be rewritten? what does this mean, you cant play anything, what should i do?
SOURCE: Nds roms not working
Usually when there are problems with booting roms on the r4 it is because the kernel is out of date. Download the latest kernel for your r4 at http://www.r4ds.com/download-en.htm
If the games still don't work, you might need to replace the arm7.bin file in the game. To do this, you will need to use a program called DSLazy. You can download it here. So to replace the arm7.bin, you will need a nds rom that works without the arm7.bin fix.
Step One: Start DSLazy.
Step Two: Browse for the file that works without the fix (I use Tetris DS)
Step Three: Click Unpack. This will create a new folder called NDS_UNPACK
Step Four: Move the arm7.bin inside the new folder somewhere safe. Close DSLazy
Step Five: Complete steps 1-3 again.
Step Six: Now open NDS_UNPACK that you just created with the game you want to fix and put the arm7.bin that you moved from step four into the NDS_UNPACK to replace the one already in there with the new one.
Step Seven: Click NDS Packer in DSLazy. This will create a new version of the game you want to fix with a new arm7.bin
Step Eight: You are done. Copy the game to your r4 and load it. The game should work.
If this didn't work, which shouldn't happen, try re-downloading your roms.
If it STILL doesn't work, there might be a problem with your r4, and you might want to get it fixed or get a new one.
~hope this helps.

SOURCE: r4 problem cant find save file
this is a problem with the R4 Kernel which has not been updated in a long time and probably wont.
use this instead its a Replacement for the R4 Kernel which is based on the DSTT 1.16 firmware.
simple copy the new files to your R4 and games will boot fine.

Hi, the original R4 revolution will only worked up to kernel 1.16 or 1.17 or 1.18 (cant remember its one of them). Anything that is higher than that are for the R4 SDHC and others (different type). R4 Cards can be pretty confusing as there are many types (original v2, v3, SDHC, supercard...etc) and they all have their own website. Cant remember the link to the original one but you can get the software at http://nds-gear.com/software-r4v2.zip
Hopefully this one should work for you
