Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

I have been trying to play some new games on my R4 but everytime I create the .sav file the message appears "the save data could not be accessed. please turn the power off and reinsert the DS card". This doesn't happen to any of my other older games. What's going on?

Hi, download r4 games some have sav files and some don't. when use nds it creates sav file which takes little longer. any way around this?do some games just not have sav files?what does a sav file do?


The first time you open a game on the R4, it creates the .sav file.  This is the save game file, similar to how the game saves on regular cartridges.

Cannot play games off R4 mem card


Well just to let you know that R4 is an unofficial product for the DS and so it can sometimes have problems or drawbacks. Chances are when you save the files onto it your micro sd card reader is not corresponding correctly so you may want to either get it checked out or read the instructions and if there is anything you dont understand post it on here. .SAV files are basically save files placed onto the card which just allows it to be ran on the DS. Hope i helped.

Cant use ROM's in my NDS and R4


Hi Patrik,

I have had this problem with several R4 cards that i have mended for friends. Basicly what is happening is a file known as an ARM7 file is not being read properly.

There are a few ways around this problem.
  • You can download a NDS patcher/unpacker and unpack/repack the game that is giving you problems and replace the ARM7 file with one from a working game. (the unpacker will generally come with a working ARM7 file) i use one from GTA chinatown wars.

  • You can go to the torrent site and look for the game you are havong problems with and 9/10 you will find one saying 'R4 fix'

This is a link to a decent site that helps if you wanted to try it for yourself. http://cupevampe.blogspot.com/2007/12/how-to-patch-nintendo-ds-rom-tutorial.html

Good luck

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!!!!
1. DS_MENU.DAT
2. _AXMENU.DAT
3. _DS_MSHL.DNS
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!!!
