Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
My son has a NDS with a R4 (which was bought with games on) and when i now try to add games on his memory card it doesnt work. It first wants to dreate a SAV. file which i do and then it tries to start but very soon after that it crashes and shows the following message:
"the save data could not be accessed. Please turn the power off and reinsert the DS Card"
If i reebot the machine it still shows the same message.
Anybody has any good suggestions??
Thx in advance
I have had this problem with several R4 cards that i have mended for friends. Basicly what is happening is a file known as an ARM7 file is not being read properly.
There are a few ways around this problem.
This is a link to a decent site that helps if you wanted to try it for yourself. http://cupevampe.blogspot.com/2007/12/how-to-patch-nintendo-ds-rom-tutorial.html

SOURCE: R4Ds not working on NDS I
oh sorry didnt read your post right the first time, you have a new dsi? nintendo have been clever in not only makin the dsi region bound unlike the normal ds lite, meaning it will not play games from other regions where as the ds lite can but it does also made sure that the new dsi does not support any super card, be it the r4, dstt, n5. they are gits. the r4 ,dstt teams etc have promised to do cards that the dsi supports but dunno wen avalible yet and im guessin will cost more, sorry to let you in on this gimmick that nintendo have caused.hope this helps.

The first time you open a game on the R4, it creates the .sav file. This is the save game file, similar to how the game saves on regular cartridges.

all u have 2 do is take the r4 card out, go to the options and change the date back about a year. that should work. this happened to me today and i fixed it by doin that. i hope it works for u to!

Strange but this does work, putting the date back one year fixes the problem. excellent !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (thank you)
