Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

R4 CHIP When I turn on the Nintendo DS it doesn't recongize the games on the R4 chip. Sometimes the game freezes when you play it or the screen turns black. Works fine with the Nintendo Ds original games.

    I am going to exchange the R4 chip. I think it may be defected. If it does the same thing then I will go ahead and reload all the files and folders. I don't know what version they used because a friend of mines did it for me.

New Ds lite doesn't start after using R4 card


Me thinks you have the wrong R4 software installed on the chip....

I've done a few of these and all worked fine,,,, even a R4 III which was a tricky little number...... if it is the R4 III - i went for the older software and it worked,,,,, the new version failed on me.

I'll report back here in 30 mins....

R4 Deluxe Cards


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

My Nintendo DS Lite keeps freezing. It will play for a bit then freeze. When I turn the power off then play it, but then freezes again! Any answers?


Try this as it will restore the DS to factory settings.

Remove the battery cover off the back of the unit. (One small Philips screw.)

Remove the battery.

Leave the system without the battery for 10-15 minutes.

Replace the battery.

Re-install the battery cover.

Games not reconized


Does your console still have a warranty? If it does, then send it in to Nintendo for repair.
