If your R4 suddenly stopped working then it might have bit the dust. I would try to reseat it, but that could become annoying if you have to reseat it all the time. R4 cards cost about $7 these days with free shipping. If yours doesn't work, I suggest you buy a new one. Here's a good R4 guide with downloads and all sorts of good info:

What do you means not working ?
have r4 boot up scren, but not games list show up ?
just block screen.

step1:
try to change other micro sd memory card
step 2:
re-copy all the r4 firmware. (format the memory card 1st)

the worse case:
you have purchased the Fxxxing FAKE R4.........
that's why the reason not working

There's a problem on my DS R4 game, after 8 hours of game I can't begin a battle because when I do a black screen appears and the music continue but I can do nothing to continue the game


Normally this happens because the game you downloaded, also called a rom, is incomplete or is not compatible. The solution is to download a different rom of the same game and see if it works. If not, then you may need to upgrade the R4 software available here, http://www.r4ds.me/download/r4ds.html For a how to video, go too, R4 DS Card Firmware Download And Set Up For R4 DS

Hope this helps.

R4 ,When switching on ,SD error shows then


This sounds like a problem with the MicroSD card in the R4. Some brands have been known to be incompatible. Without knowing more information about the R4 and the SD card

A couple of years ago, I had three microSD cards fail, even reformatting failed. I believe it was a problem with the R4's at the time. Try reformatting the microSD card in a PC, download the latest kernel and load that on to the microSD card, if you can get it to format.

Failing that, buy a new SD card. SanDisk/Transcend and Kingston are the preferred and recommended types. Is this an R4 or R4-SDHC? Don't use an SDHC(4gb+) memory card in a R4, only in R4-SDHC.

Memory cards are cheap enough 1gb-2gb don't cost that much, if you have an R4-SDHC then try a 4gb

I take it it was working at some point or other, or is this a new card?

Brand new R4 III DS is not recognized my DS Lite.


There's a

great tutorial on http://www.dscardworld.com with pictures and links to all the official software.

If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card there too. I managed to find this site after I got burned at a few

others. Loved having my emails responded to because I had loads of questions, and they were quick to ship it.

Best of luck!

NDS R4


Im not 100% sure about this...I own a R4 myself. What I do notice if you use the wrong type of SD Card(Anything above 2GB) or use it in the wrong type of R4(SDHC Kernel in a Non-SDHC Card) It tends to get stuck at that loading screen.

Sometimes you can remedy this by taking the R4 out and the sd card out and using a air can or blowing on the parts in between(inside the DS, Inside the R4) and try it and it will sometimes fix that. Also a corrupted transfer of the kernel or a bad kernel can do that too.

Hope this helps.

Btw here are a few Kernel Links:
R4DS(Non-SDHC): www.r4ds.cn
R4DS(SDHC): www.r4ds.us

Hope this helps
