Step 1:Go to r4ds.com and download version 1.11 firmware. Put your micro SD card into themicro SD card reader that came with your R4DS then plug into the computer.Simply drag and drop ALL of the files onto the micro SD card. Step 2:Then drag and drop any.nds file onto the micro SD card reader or an mp3 file if you want to test itout on either music or a game. For legal issues I cannot supply youwith a website on how to get yourself any roms. Step 3:Safely remove the microSD card reader from your computer and then take out the micro SD card. Slotyour micro SD card into the R4DS cartridge and then put it into the NintendoDS. Step 4:Turn on your NintendoDS and it will load up the menu screen. If you put an mp3 file onto the card gointo multimedia if you are loading up an .nds file go intogames. The other option you can choose is for loading slot 2 devices a.k.a GBAgames. Step 5:Now find your game/MP3and play it. Viola! You have a full working R4DS!You can buy an R4DS from a lot of places on the Internet. Forlinks on where to buy an R4DS go here and lookin the "Where to Buy" section.
How do you know if your R4DS is broken?If the loading screen takes more than 30seconds to load
If your micro SD will not fit into the R4DS
If your R4DS will not play any roms
If the firmware does not work try re-downloading
Note: If your micro SD does not fit in properly but you can stillget it into the R4DS your spring has been broken. This is a really knownproblem that unfortunately can't be fixed and happens to most R4DS's.

Please try formatting the device once and then re insert the card.
If you use panasonic formatter you wont lose the saved games if you make a backup of all the .sav files on the card before you format.
Hope this may be useful. Thank you.

How to add a games


hi,
read this
If you've already downloaded Free Nintendo DS Lite Game Roms but still do not have any idea how to install and play with it, then do not fret. There is a simple procedure in doing it.
After this complete step by step tutorial, your NDS Rom games will be automatically copied into your R4DS and you'll be able to play like a pro. I assume that you use Windows XP or higher and you have sufficient computer skills to follow me through.
1. Unzip the zip file you've downloaded using your favorite unzip application. Keep it in a safe place for future use.
2. Remove your microSD card from the R4DS cartridge.
3. Insert your microSD card to the microSD USB adaptor that you got when you bought your R4DS.
4. Insert the microSD USB adaptor (where your microSD card is inserted) to your PC's USB port. Windows will automatically detect it.
5. Go to My Computer. You'll see a new drive in it. That's your microSD card. Double click it.
6. Copy the .NDS file that you unzipped on step 1 and paste it on the drive that you opened on step 5. Never paste it to any directory. Just paste it on the root directory. You only need to copy the .NDS files, no more, no less, just ignore the other files that goes with the zip file.
7. Safely remove your USB drive when done copying all the NDS files. I guess, you know how to do this. If not, ask anyone around you. icon_smile.gif8. Remove the microSD card from the microSD USB adaptor.
9. Insert the microSD card to your R4DS cartridge.
10. Insert your R4DS cartridge to your Nintendo DS Lite.
11. Turn on your Nintendo DS Lite. If you followed all the directions above correctly, you'll be able to see the copied games on the list of games on your R4DS now. Enjoy!
Of course, please note that copying game ROMs to your R4DS is illegal, unless you have the original copy of the game and you're just copying the backup file. R4DS is definitely NOT illegal, it's how you handle and deal with it that could make it illegal. So just make sure that you're copying a back-up of your games. Enjoy!

DS Lite Console: my nintendo ds lite won't read game cards...


try compressed air.
more then likely its a hardware issue. try getting an R4DS card and download games from www.filestube.com if you dont want to repair it.
you can have 50+ games on an sd card and not have to lug around all those games anymore

I just got a new ds lite and had a r4 card before. in my old ds it works fine but when i insert it into my ds lite it comes up with the ds menu and says insert game? WTF? HELP!!


If you bought a DSi w/ the camera the R4DS will NOT work. And you have to get a Gold R4DS-i to be compatible w/ the new DSi 1.4 firmware. Even if you bought a new one it is possible the new DS has updated firmware to prevent the use of the R4.

It is possible that your R4 needs to be updated to a newer version. I would start there first.

R4DS works in other ds lite but not my own, why?


this is a know issue with R4 clone cards, most R4 cards sold today are not real R4NDS cards because they have been discontinued
Most R4 clones have some trouble with firm version on DS make version and date.

No R4DS


It is possible, can be the following:
The card slots from recent nintendo's have been adjusted to avoid the use of r4ds. If your nintendo is newer you can try to put a small pice of carton behind the r4ds card in order to push it well against the contacts.

I have just received an r4ds card ive loaded the software and a couple of games but all that comes up on the screen is loading do these cads work on the ds lite


Yes,

First you need to make sure you format your Micro-SD card in Windows to FAT32 format. Then load the latest software files onto your micro-sd card. You can get these from http://www.r4ds.cn/download/r4ds.html

Then in the root directory of the MicroSD card, make a folder called "Games" (without the ""s) and place your .nds backup files/ROMs in the Games folder.

Insert the R4DS in the DS lite and it just says "loading" and thats it ?


hi

first of all , check your r4 version.
there are many.

have you put the right firmware on your r4?
original : http://r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html

r4 revolution pro : http://www.r4dspro.com/download_en.html
r4 ultra and de luxe : http://www.r4deluxe.com/en/down.asp
r4 III : http://www.r4dsl.net/download-en.asp

after that it should work.

(or maybe you should format your memory card first.)
