First download the English Kernel v1.18 (system files) from here http://r4ds.net/ then Unzip the files and place them in the root directory of your flash card. All should now be ok :)

Both of my kids have DS Lites. Both systems aren't recognizing that there is a game inserted. Sometimes (maybe 1 out of 30 times inserted) we will get lucky and it will work so I know it isn't the games....


You really shouldn't. This is a design flaw, worthy of a class action lawsuit comparable to the one Microsoft faced for the Xbox 360 RROD fiasco. With the old ds, the gold contacts would bend and break over time from games being inserted and ejected and such. Nintendo "rectified" the problem by adding a spring to force it into the right place. Pretty stupid on their R&D dept.'s part. Forcing electronics only breaks them over time. The average lifespan of a DS lite is about a year. If you bought your kids their systems at about the same time, that would explain why they both dont work. I recommend ditching the DS. Either invest in PSPs, as they are more versatile, and you can pirate games on them, so you don't have to pay $60 for a game because you can download them on the internet. But if your kids really want to keep the DS, I have a suggestion. My sister has a lite, and has had it since it first came out. If you pay the $75 to get it fixed, it could be cheaper in the long run, as it will never break again if you do what i'm about to tell you, and you'll never pay for another game again. My sister prevented this on her Ds Lite because she never ejects her cartridge. she has something called an R4 chip. Its really easy to use. the R4 is a cartridge that has a slot that can house a micro SD card. You can actually download games to this chip, for free from various places on the internet. And the DS will never break again from wear and tear, because you dont eject the R4 if you want more games, you eject the micro SD from the R4. Shoot me an email at edchen111@gmail.com if you want to know more about this. No i do not work for R4, i sincerely believe this course of action will save you the most money. Here is R4s website. Take a look.

R4 card getting stuck at "loading"


it is probably because your sister has a different version of R4. They are the same things, but your sister might have an earlier version than you do. This is because, some versions dont work with some ds lites while others do.

How do i get deleted games back on ds r4 card cause little sister deleted some of the best games like mario kart ds and cooking mama and also super mario!!! im so angry !!! plz plz plz plz help me plz...


Cards like R4 allow you to store multiple games on one card. So when you start your DS, you choose which game you want to play and do not have to take all your games with you. The R4 relies on a microSD card to keep track of the games and save files. Your actual game, you should be able to recover from the original game cartridge (since you do actually own the game).

To recover your game progress (save file), you can put the microSD card in your PC (using the appropriate adapter) and just have a recovery program look for the files on the microSD card. There are several good FREE file recovery softwares on the internet. They will likely be your only shot a recovering your game progress but that depends on how much you've used your R4. If you have used it a lot, your save game may have been overwrite which means it is lost for good.

Whatever you do, do not do anything illegal.

Where to get games for r4 cards


ok look up roms for the games but i dont how to work ds games which most people ask for. i have heard of a way to hack the capabilites of the ds with two cards one the PASSME card which is the ds carttridge and then the micro sd card slot that is the GBA slot on the bottom.

Super Nintendo games and any games before need emulators.. and the emulators need to be patched before they play.

google up super nintendo roms or the the title of a game and then rom.. Mega Man X3 rom

patching

ok here we go!!!!!!rusty on this!!! so ur card is working but games no.. well if ur emulators are not pacthed they wont start so patching the emulators [or programs like ultra thing] will make sure its runs on ur R4 and make sure you download files for R4. here are the files and sites

http://hbnds.biohazardteam.org/ has emulators!! they let you play snes nes and more

http://chishm.drunkencoders.com/DLDI/#patchers ok go to the R4 files for this site ok and also it has the patching programs on the bottom Win32

extract the file ok get the dlltool32.exe file and drop it in a folder on your desktop and put the file for your R4 in the folder to and the emulator also then run program dlltool32.exe and chose the patch file you downloaded and the emulator file and run it! it should say patch success and now set the emulator and any files it came with and add games in the card and run it should work

R4 plays games in my sisters ds but card wont play games in mine?


This may be fo a number of reasons. First of all this may be because the connections are not clean. So wipe the connections on the R4 card if neccesary. If this doesn't work unscrew your R4 card and place a small piece of paper underneath the chicp. This will raise the connection ribbons and make better contact with the ds. Next you should make sure your card is not corupted. Install the latest firmware. Hope this helps.

Insalling m3 resl deal but cant find DS MENU .dat


apparently m3 dont do upgrades now but this might help http://www.m3-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=312
basically it converts the r4 ds menu.dat to work on m3 simply (may work for m3 real) so now all you have to do is go to r4 download site and download latest version. 1.18 from here http://www.r4dscart.com/r4-software.html (select the english update) then patch ur dat file replace it back to where you took it from before patching and then copy all 4 files ( _system_ moonshi _ds_menu.dat _ds_mshl.nds) into the root of micro sd card. advise you to copy any files/games you have on your mem card then copy the games over to your newly installed firmware. oh by the way in the link i provided on how2 patch the ds_menu.dat it might be bit vague on where you put the ds_menu.dat file to patch it, all you do is drag and drop it into the PATCH app thats inside the "r4 to m3 patcher" folder. post a reply to let me know how you got on

Couldn't dind ds-menu.dat using R4 card


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.
