Format the memory card.
Create from the root a folder called "SYSTEM" and a folder called "NDS".
Copy the systemfiles into SYSTEM and the games with the .nds extension in the NDS folder.
That must working. If not, go to your R4 seller and ask a replacement.

My DS lite's r4 (memory card) said system date error! Please check NDS system date What is the solution to make my memory card work again

Look on your card and go to the site that is on your card, when you have done that download the recent firmware for your card, take off the firmware you have on your card and put the new formware on your card, one by one, their should be three or four if you have a r4, that should solve the problem, the firmware was updated for the r4 recently to cure problems with nintendo stopping games from loading.

R4 download

The thing is you havent got the right firmware. I believe you have bought an R4 clone.. Don't be alarmed its not all that bad, just go to the site thats printed on the R4 Box.

I dont know what files to download to make my ds R4 work?

First download the English Kernel v1.18 (system files) from here then Unzip the files and place them in the root directory of your flash card. All should now be ok :)

Freeze on loading screen

Hello Minnie,

The last official firmware for the original R4 was v1.18, the R4 SDHC needed different firmware as it's from a different manufacturer. You need the 1.34 software available from this download page if you have the real black box one: R4 Firmware

That should fix your problems.
