Have a r4 card but it will not work in ds just says there is no game card in

hi there

with your r4 card it may read like how it reads dvd's with a ds its like a region code. depending on what region your ds is and what ever region the r4 card is you dont get anything if they are totally different. some r4 cards usually correspond to the proper region code or close enough to it. if thats isnt the case then you have a problem with the ds card slot... i hope this was of some use :3

When i turned on my ds, it says "couldn't find ds_MENUdat

It sounds like you need to figure out exactly what kind of DS card you have. Check out's DS Card Setup Guide which should sort you out.

Also, I recommend only buying genuine cards since a lot of the fakes tend to break quite easily. Maybe from or from if you're in Canada/Europe since their international shipping's a bit cheaper

Good luck!

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.
