    The game Mario Kart is one of 99 games preloaded onto a R4 chip, which when inserted only shows as 98 games but the game is in the system back up where the game was saved and i need to restore it to the original list, which i cannot do.

    Thanks but how does one reset the console to cure this problem?

    I have no idea

  • brechiner Jan 02, 2009

    so how do you reset it as i removed the battery etc and it STILL does NOT appear on that list of 99 games

  • brechiner Jan 02, 2009

    I do not have ANY software/hardware to convert any files from a website to a ds lite

  • brechiner Jan 02, 2009

    no we have tried but to no avail
    we have tried various lengths of time
    even removing the battery for a minute or so

  • brechiner Jan 02, 2009

    the previous poster said that then switch off but nothing changes still 98 games on the list

  • brechiner Jan 02, 2009

    it came with 98 other games on a P4 chip and was working well but my autistic son deleted it from the list but NOT from the memory back up and I cannot restore it and I have NO software or the mental capacity to deal with downloading games for a ds lite

  • brechiner Jan 02, 2009

    The ds lite doesn't have a reset facility just removing the battery and putting it back in after a perod of time

  • brechiner Jan 02, 2009

    I am not tekkie and I dont know what a micro -Sd card is or where it would be on my system.
    I have NOT bought one

  • brechiner Jan 02, 2009

    So no experts can help?

  • brechiner Jan 02, 2009

    even if it is backed up in save game?

  • brechiner Jan 02, 2009

    thanks for the links but I'm in the UK

  • brechiner Jan 02, 2009

    thanks for everyone who contributed to try to solve the unsolvable

    I hope your New Year sees you all well.stay safe

Hi! Remove the micro SD card from your r4 and plug it into the computer using the card reader and from there search for the game you want to install and then double click it. you would be able to install it back again into your r4. now you would be able to see .nds extension after your game name(like Mario.nds) if not then search it. and now disconnect the memory card and put it back into the r4 and you will be able to play the game again.

Once you have deleted your game it cannot be restored. You'll have to just start over. Good luck

I suggest you install the game like when you got the game. Or how did you have the game in the Ds Lite?

My son I think has deleted all games ...how can I restore them


Greetings,

The game data for GBA SP games are held in the actually game cartridge itself. It is not stored within the GBA. If the data from the games has been deleted, he would have to restart each game from the beginning. There is no way to restore lost saved data once it is gone. Thank you for using FixYa! =) If I helped, please give me a rating.

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.

Cannot play games off R4 mem card


Well just to let you know that R4 is an unofficial product for the DS and so it can sometimes have problems or drawbacks. Chances are when you save the files onto it your micro sd card reader is not corresponding correctly so you may want to either get it checked out or read the instructions and if there is anything you dont understand post it on here. .SAV files are basically save files placed onto the card which just allows it to be ran on the DS. Hope i helped.

Games will not list in DS even though downloaded onto SD Card.


Try plugging the memory card into your computer and checking that the files still exist. It is possible to delete files from the memory card whilst it is plugged into your DS.
