Stuck on Loading Screen
This usually indicates that the software kernel on the micro sd memory card has become corrupted. It can also happen if the micro sd memory card is overloaded with games, music and video files etc. The solution is to reinstall the kernel software on the micro sd card and ensure the micro sd memory card is not overloaded. Leave about 25% memory free.
download SDformatter and format the sd card with that, place all the files on there, none in folders..
When you copied the R4 software to the SD card you either missed something or put something in the wrong place. This is the most likely cause of nothing happening when you turn on your DS. It's also possible that you are using an oder version of the software. Follow the link provided.
google R4 revolution or R4 card. You will see a host of websites. Each one will have a download for the card... Your best bet for finding the correct kernel is to go to the website that you purchased the card from and there should be a link to download the firmware( kernel ) for the card. Once you get the firmware you will need to transfer that onto your micro sd card using the TF adapter that should have come with the R4 card. Make sure you transfer everything over to the micro .... After you get the info onto the card make folders for your media. Label them correctly so you can find them on your ds. Label one music one movies one games. After that is done insert your micro sd card into the R4 and plug it into your ds... have fun ..these cards really open the ds up to a ton of neat and fun programs
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
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
