SOURCE: game card not inserted

Looks like a problem with the slot. You can try to blow some air in it but more likely it is one of the contacts. I've even seen a loose soldering on the systemboard.
It might be better to send it to Nintendo for repair.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: nintendo r4 nor working

The cartridge isn't being detected by the DS, this has nothing to do with what is on the card, it's not connecting with the pins inside the DS. Possibly putting a thin piece of card on the front of the game card may push the adaptor close enough to contact the pins.

i'm glad to help you solve the problem, if you want "insert & use" item, i recommend you to purchase multi game card, it is just plug and play, no need to download the kernal like r4 card.

Multi game card can compatible with Nintendo 3DS (XL,LL) upto V4.1.0-8 and Nintendo DSi upto V1.44. It already have hundreds of games in it, no need to download games again. Thus, it is best gift for children.

Where to buy? You can have a look at http://t.co/qkcnKnTO

I bought a new ds game today and it said no game was inserted when it was. brought it back to the shop and they said once you use an r4 card you cant use new games in the dsi anyone else heard of this?


Hi there, that "shop" is talking a load of rubbish. An R4 card uses the same cartridge format as a standard DS cartridge and will cause absolutely no damage to the DS at all. As for fixing the problem, try blowing in the card slot or seeing if any of the pins are bent inside. If they are bent you will need a new card reader slot soldered in, not a job for the faint hearted! See how you get on.

Hope this helps

R4 ..Im Clueless!


you need to go to youtube and look up the r4 files required to run r4, you need to choose what system you will use when using the card as you dont simply just drag games in to the card directory you actually need the operating files as well for the card or it will not recognise it. hope this helps, tim

Ds does not recognise R4


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.
