NDS R4 Hi - I was hoping you could help. My daughter has a R4 loaded with games - however most of them dont load up and the NDS says "can not find data - switch off and reinsert card" - However I recently purchased anther for my son and came across same problem. After visiting this site I upgraded my sons and that has fixed the problem 100%. I therefore tried the same with my daughters and was unsuccessful as now the R4 doesnt load up at all not even to the menu. Just stays on black screen "loading". I thought I would try deleting all from hers and copying my sons across. Still with no success same problem. Strange thing is that when I put my daughters micro in my sons R4 it works 100%. When I put my sons micro in my daughters R4 - no good just same black screen "loading". It is as if there is a problem with R4 and not the data on the micro. Yet her R4 was working ( not correctly ) before the update.... Any Ideas????

The could not find save data error is to do with the games being badly pirated copys (yes all download games on the r4 are pirated) or it could be bad firmware

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

Hi, I have an R4 advance card with games on it. It runs perfectly every time on my daughters nds. I have since brought a second nds for my other daughter for xmas. But for some reason the r4 card will...


hi, im not allowed to tell you much as its something that is banned on the site so anything relating to r4 cards or copied games is not allowed so i can only tell you what the problem is and point you in the right direction ok.

now the reason the ds wont see the r4 card is due to the latest update nintendo sent out to the ds's this latest update had software in it that prevented people from using r4 to play games.

all i can tell you is if you search using google and type in why wont my ds play r4 card after update and hit search.
also search for this, how to downgrade my ds so i can use the r4 card, then hit search,

that should then tell you all you need to know and get you sorted.

im sorry i cant be more help but i would be kicked off the site so i can only point you in the right direction.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Need to know how to get games to work with my r4 ds revoultion card.downlosded software but cant get games to work .do i have to extract them?


First get the R4 OS installed onto the card (into the root dir), then make a sub directory called NDS. Put your .NDS files into that directory. you should now have a couple of sub dirs, NDS, Moonshl2, and r4iMenu or something similar. and some r4 OS files in the root directory.

R4 should boot, then pick the left icon (games) and load a game from the resulting list.

Yes you must extract the files. It won't play from a zip file. all files must end in .NDS for them to work. There are a lot of cool homebrew out there for these cards, have fun.

R4 Problem loading error


Get this file extract the file with winrar, and copy the files to the DS card. The file structure should have is:
Files
  • _DS_MENU.DAT
  • _DS_MSHL.NDS
Folders
  • _system_
  • moonshl
You should now put your .nds files onto the root of the card also, and hopefully all should work OK for you

Unable to read sd card


Hi grecko, Hope this helps, I've just bought a 4gb memory card for my daughter's ds so she can fit 58-60 games instead of 28 on a 2gb memory card and have downloaded and put a file onto the memory card before loading games onto it.

Supercard DS one have a site where you can download the files you need and it gives help. Guess it's the same if using an R4 supercard too but I bought an R4 card for partner preloaded with software.

Freezed on loading screen !!!!!!!!!


Hi, the original R4 revolution will only worked up to kernel 1.16 or 1.17 or 1.18 (cant remember its one of them). Anything that is higher than that are for the R4 SDHC and others (different type). R4 Cards can be pretty confusing as there are many types (original v2, v3, SDHC, supercard...etc) and they all have their own website. Cant remember the link to the original one but you can get the software at http://nds-gear.com/software-r4v2.zip

Hopefully this one should work for you
