Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

R4 Deluxe Cards

I have two R4 Deluxe Cards that bought that were supposedly ready to download games onto. I took the chip out and put it in the usb thing (which one of the usb things didn't work) and then created directories and then dragged all the games i wanted into the directories. When I put the r4 into the ds lites a few things happen:
1. some games work sometimes
2. some games start to download then the screen freezes or goes blank
3. sometime we turn on the ds and the ds "warning" sign comes up but it's very faded and we have to turn it off and on again
4. most games don't work
5. I went to the www.r4deluxe.com website but it's not clear to me what i can do to get these things to work.
WHAT ARE WE DOING WRONG? I am not very technical. My kids are upset they can't really use their new ds's that they got for christmas.
Please help!
Thanx

    Thanx for answering. I ended up going back to the store where I bought them and argued with the guy until he traded them for an r4sd or something else. Still not the original R4.

    I would say to anyone buying out there only buy the R4 original version or the r4sd.

    I found another store that is more reputable and they explained all the differences to me.

    Apparantly the "r4 deluxe" is the worst knockoff out there! Don't buy it!
    I am not very technical so I didn't know any better but I am learning!

    THANX!

OK, my kids have the R4, iam not sure its the Deluxe one, but they look same as yours, anyway i went and downloaded the newest version of R4 software from here
h**p://r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html, now change ** to tt, (http) in the link.
Now with the older version a lot of the games did not work, when i downloaded the newest version
(english kernel v1.18) most of them worked, and make sure you read that web page.
----- How to update R4?
After downloading and decompressing the new updated files, there will be one shell folder and two files _DS_MENU.DAT、 _DS_MSHL.NDS.Copy these files to the root directory of TF(the memory card in R4) card to replace the former files(i suggest to cut and paste old system kernel file from yours to a folder, then put the new ones in).
this one worked for me for most of the games. thanks

Hi denise, amh, could you please specify what r4 model you got? because there are lot of R4 out there, but the original R4 team had stopped producing R4's, all we have mostly today are clones. now some R4 only recognize up to 2GB of sd/micro sd cards, try using 2GB then see if that works..

Nitendo DS lite how to play music using R4 revolution DS on my


First you need to make sure you have the current firmware for the R4 card loaded onto the micro-sd card. I know that some R4 cards only accept up to a 2gb memory card so check and make sure you are using the correct micro card with the R4. When you have downloaded the firmware for your card you need to make some folders. Label them games...movies... music... etc.. making a folder for each one. Put the Mp3 files in the correct folder. When you use your R4 you will see three icons at the startup screen go to the one labeled multi-media... Moonshell will run the movies/music... you are ready to go ... hope this helps

A NEW NDSL R4 REVOLUTION 3 FOR DS WILL NOT RUN


i have a ndsl r4 ver 3
and had it some time,

they are alittle fussy at times,

But go to www.ndslr4.com download v1.25 English


This should solve the problem or at least ease it,

You may have to power on and off a few times, take the R4 out everytime you do this, but once it works it works well, i have over 165 games on one R4.

R4 card


1- If you are using the same card in both cards and only work in the R4 deluxe then your R4 SDHC need different system files to work.

2- If you are using different cards with different system files for each one then the files would be corrupted, download them again from R4 site; or your SD memory need to be formatted to fat32 for your SDHC R4.
