Ds does not recognise R4

When I place an R4 into my DS lite it says that there is no DS card inserted. (The DS is new; bought yesterday) it works in my, two, daughters DS lites.

Eject the game card, blow on the gold prongs, blow in the game card slot, then reinsert. It should work, because this happened with my Viva Pinata Pocket Paradise on my DS, and even though yours is an R4 and mine is a seperate game, it should work the same as they are both game cards 4 DS. I hope this works as I love helping others. :) Good Luck.

Try eject, blow into the port then reinsert. There is a possibility that your ds has blocked the r4 from being used on that ds.

DS doens't recoginize R4 card in my sons DS Lite. My other sons DS does recoginize the R4 card. Why? how can I get the card to work in both DS Lites.


Make sure you bought the correct R4 for the DS light and not the DSi. If you bought the correct one, then it sounds like the R4 cartridge is defective and needs to be exchanged for another one. Remember, Nintendo does not support the R4 cartridge, so go back to where you purchased it from.

I just got a new ds lite and had a r4 card before. in my old ds it works fine but when i insert it into my ds lite it comes up with the ds menu and says insert game? WTF? HELP!!


If you bought a DSi w/ the camera the R4DS will NOT work. And you have to get a Gold R4DS-i to be compatible w/ the new DSi 1.4 firmware. Even if you bought a new one it is possible the new DS has updated firmware to prevent the use of the R4.

It is possible that your R4 needs to be updated to a newer version. I would start there first.

NDS not recognising R4 but will still play DS game cartridges.


Is your DS a DS Lite? If it is, open up your R4. Fold up a piece of paper and put it right behind the gold contacts (on the side facing away from the DS). Close it all up and it should work.

DS Lite with R4 Card: Games keep freezing up - please help!


You have to put the R4 v1.18 kernel on the memory card for it to work.
R4 web site is http://r4ds.cn/
In the download section is the r4 manual follow that and you should be ok.
