    I don't know much when it comes to r4s and roms etc, but I've got that problem and I was wondering on Solution #2, will it work if I justy dowload the firmware? Do I have to change it into an nds file (it is a rar)?

    i have that problem too!

    i already upgraded the system for the r4

  • fixyaam Apr 30, 2009

    This didn't solve my problem. I was able to follow these nice instructions, unpack, pack, etc. Even tried using arm7 and arm9. But now the game crashes when loading (blank screen) - don't know if this is a step ahead or a back step .


    I tried downloading several "fixed" Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars game, but none worked on my system. Most games work ok, but not this one. :(

[DS] Cannot access save data fix. Some cards like the R4 and a few other cards have trouble running certain games,
With the exception of one game "Star Wars Jedi Alliance" All games can be fixed to work on these lower qaulity cards.


So why is it broken?
Basicly at some point during development nintendo changed the way save files are handled, saves are handled by a file inside all ds roms called "arm7.bin", older cards such as the R4 and others have no way of reading or using this updated arm7, so the solution is to swap the newer arm7 with an older arm7 taken from a working game.

This is refered to as an arm7 patch, swap or fix.


So how do i fix it?
First of all just try update your cards firmware. Firmwares for all cards


If that doesnt work there are a few programs out there that you can use to arm7 swap, DSlazy and DSbuff.
DSbuff being a more up to date program.
R4 card the save data could not be accessed . - %5b3443%5ddsbuff_small.png

DSbuff v.1 Final link: DSbuff

Extract with 7zip, winrar or winzip: 7 Zip

Pre extracted arm7.bin from Contra 4: arm7.bin
If you download the arm7.bin put it in the folder you create in step one then you can skip step 2 completly.


NOTE: If DSbuff doesnt work properly on your computer *for example the program crashes during the arm7 swap follow this guide for DSlazy* DSlazy links and guide


DSBuff Instructions:

Step one: Set-Up
Create a folder on your desktop and name it the game you want to fix.
Extract DSbuff anywhere and start it.

Step two: Unpacking
Run DSbuff.exe and click browse dsbuffbrowse.png now choose a game you have tR4 card the save data could not be accessed . - dsbuffunpack.pngClick unpack dsbuffunpack.png then browse dsbuffbrowse.png in the new drop down section.
ChR4 card the save data could not be accessed . - dsbuffunpack2.pngou created on your desktop
Click "Unpack Checked" and make it so only Arm7 has a tick.
Now click dsbuffunpack2.png

SteR4 card the save data could not be accessed . - dsbuffarm7swap.pngm7 swap.
Click the Drive:\ directory up the R4 card the save data could not be accessed . - dsbuffbrowse.pngart DSbuff and click browse, now select the game your trying to fix.
Click on arm7 dsbuffarm7swap.png then browse dsbuffbrowse.png and choose arm7.bin from your folder you created. Now click dsbuffarm7swaptick.png
Watch the green line to see when its done, it will unpack, then repack then when its finished give you the option of what to name the file.

Congratulations your finished, enjoy your game.

I think the file you d/l had a save file that the uploader put in by accident. I had the same thing happen to me. Just try and d/l from somewhere else that should solve the problem. If not pls post.

    Also you might want to check for any updates your R4 might have. And you may want to re-format your micro sd. That helps most of the time.
