Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

Cannot play my games

I have added a couple of new games to my R4. Everytime I try to play I get the error message "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?

your save game data is probably corrupted did you turn it off before it was done saving

PS3 Error message...

This is the error code for disk errors: "An error occurred during the start operation. (8001002B)". If the disc is clean, maybe the laser is dirty. Use a lens cleaning CD to give the laser a clean (cheap to buy). You can also try deleting the temporary game data (using Game Data Utility) and reinstall the game.

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.

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.
