Try the paper shim trick first. It could be that the older NDSL's slot one contacts have become "sprung" and aren't making good contact.

Cut a piece of paper slightly narrower but longer than the R4. Put it on the non-contact side of the R4 and insert the R4 (with the paper on the back) into slot 1. It may increase the thickness of the R4 such that the slot 1 fingers now make contact.

When I play Pokemon Pearl, the game freezes once I run up the road to Solaceon Town. Any Solutions?


may be your r4 card is broken, how about you format the sd card and try to re-down load the game again? If it still doesn't work, there will be some problem with it.

I have purchase the r4 card on http://r4-3.com, and it works perfect.

R4 card getting stuck at "loading"


it is probably because your sister has a different version of R4. They are the same things, but your sister might have an earlier version than you do. This is because, some versions dont work with some ds lites while others do.

I have recently purchase a R4 chip for a NDSL and have tried loading games via a disk and by a download. I have confirmed that the files are on the chip but when I try to load them on the handset the unit...


have you installed the R4 system data on the memory card from the R4 website?
If all is well with the data on the card then you may have a connection problem between the sd card and R4 card or R4 card and ds. so investigate the cleanliness of the pins and the tightness of the cards in their sockets.
Some copy DS lites are fussy and don't work well with smart cards. A new motherboard would cure this but it will cost you £50-60

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.

Unable to read sd card


Hi grecko, Hope this helps, I've just bought a 4gb memory card for my daughter's ds so she can fit 58-60 games instead of 28 on a 2gb memory card and have downloaded and put a file onto the memory card before loading games onto it.

Supercard DS one have a site where you can download the files you need and it gives help. Guess it's the same if using an R4 supercard too but I bought an R4 card for partner preloaded with software.
