You only need to use one, if you are using both at the same time that is why. I recommend you format your sd card.
1. Plug SD Reader Into Your PC
2. Go To My Computer
3. Right Click Your SD Card (Usualy F:)
4. Click Format
5. Use the drop down menu to change file system to 'FAT (default)'
6. Uncheck Quick Format If It Is Checked
7. Last Click Format

After that is complete just reload 1.18 kernal onto your r4.

DS R4 card keeps freezing-- help!?


Hell Xin,

It seems like you got the R4 SDHC, but not the original one I'm afraid. The original one is from www.r4sdhc.com, and it is a better supported product.

You could try reformatting your micro sd card and see if that's unstable, but if not I'd recommend getting a new R4. If you do suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card there too. http://www.dscardworld.com 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. They test each card before sending them. US based support and shipping I believe.

Best of luck!

My ds keeps saying loading when i insert r4 card


Make sure you have the correct kernel loaded onto the card. Also some r4 cards only accept up to a limited amount of gb's. I think mine only can hold up to a 2gb sd micro card. When I first used it I was using a 4gb card and it would stick on the loading screen until I loaded everything onto a 2gb card .... hope this helps

Ive copied the files across and copied games across but when running the R4 in the DS it sticks on loading screen.


There might be a couple of things wrong. It might be that you have a knock off R4 card. If the card is genuine then you may want to go to the R4 website and download the latest firmware for it. Copy the files to the TF card. Make sure you make folders for you content. Label one movies... games... music... etc.. The other problem that you might have is the SD micro card may not be compatible with the R4. I know with my card it is compatible only up to 2gb.. so if you have a card that is more than that it will stick on the loading screen when you power up your DS... hope this helps

R4 in NDSL freezing


The only thing i can suggest is to go to the site that is on your card and download the new firmware for your card, it maybe that you just need to update your card, if that dont work you may need to buy a new card, i would not leave your card in the nds if you are not using it for a while, take it out, dont leave it in the nds, it maybe that the contacts are worn.

R4DS Card Software problem


Try downloading kernel v1.18 from the site indicated in the box that you received your R4 in, it's the one I've been using for 6 months now and I've had no problems. Ensure that you follow their instructions as to how to install it and all should be OK.

R4 card


Could be the R4 is not coming into contact with the connections inside the DS.Try putting the r4 in the Ds then using a piece of paper folded a couple of times down inside the slot between the ds and the r4 to push the connection pins together a bit better.
