Ds lite will not play video files

I have an NDSL R4 Revolution 3 TF card (presumably a clone) with a 4 meg micro-sd Memory card . Games load and play fine Mp3's play fine. The problem is I cannot get it to play video files even though I have converted the files from Avi to DPG format .The video file shows the extension DPGM1V. I have tried several versions of Moonshell the latest being Version 1.71. for the r4 and the firmware on the TF. card is version 1.25. Have you any ideas as to a) where I can get either the right Firmware version or b)the right Moonshell file?.
Any help would be gratefully received as my Grandson who is 3 will soon be telling me where I am going wrong and Granddads are supposed to know everything
cheers

Hi George,

Firstly may i suggest you put R4 firmware 1.18 on the micro sd card as it is much more stable (link: http://www.r4dscart.com/r4-software.html).

The moonshell you are using should be correct however, i am comfused by the .dpgm1v extension as i have only ever used files with the .dpg extension.

Have you tried downloading a .dpg movie and trying that in moonshell? Just a suggestion.

Please let me know how you get on. Will be happy to assist further if needed.

Good luck,

Karlos

My ds freezes when loading the R4, or it says that there is no game in the ds slot


Stuck on Loading Screen This usually indicates that the software kernel on the micro sd memory card has become corrupted. It can also happen if the micro sd memory card is overloaded with games, music and video files etc. The solution is to reinstall the kernel software on the micro sd card and ensure the micro sd memory card is not overloaded. Leave about 25% memory free.
download SDformatter and format the sd card with that, place all the files on there, none in folders..
  • Download the correct software kernel from the manufacturers website
  • Unzip the files using a suitable programme such as Win Zip or 7 Zip.
  • Open the folder containing the unzipped files and copy the 4 files (Moonmemo, Moonshl2, R4iMenu and R4.dat) to the root of the memory card.
  • At this point put the memory card into your R4 card. Start your console and ensure the R4 card is operating correctly.
  • You may have to run an upgrade file at this point

I have purchased an R4 card and micro sd card for my DS. I have been told that I need to download the software for it, does anybody know what software I need to download before i can transfer my games onto...


google R4 revolution or R4 card. You will see a host of websites. Each one will have a download for the card... Your best bet for finding the correct kernel is to go to the website that you purchased the card from and there should be a link to download the firmware( kernel ) for the card. Once you get the firmware you will need to transfer that onto your micro sd card using the TF adapter that should have come with the R4 card. Make sure you transfer everything over to the micro .... After you get the info onto the card make folders for your media. Label them correctly so you can find them on your ds. Label one music one movies one games. After that is done insert your micro sd card into the R4 and plug it into your ds... have fun ..these cards really open the ds up to a ton of neat and fun programs

How to put games in my memory card at Nintendo DS Lite?


To get an in depth answer seach you tube but in brief.
You will need to download the system files for your type of R4 or flash card you are using, make sure you get the exact model type as they are not interchangeable.
Drag and drop the files to your card you will see either 4 or 5 files. Then make a folder called Games on your micro SD card and load your games into that folder.
It quite involved but the tutorials on you tube go right into it.

A NEW NDSL R4 REVOLUTION 3 FOR DS WILL NOT RUN


i have a ndsl r4 ver 3
and had it some time,

they are alittle fussy at times,

But go to www.ndslr4.com download v1.25 English


This should solve the problem or at least ease it,

You may have to power on and off a few times, take the R4 out everytime you do this, but once it works it works well, i have over 165 games on one R4.

hi

first of all , check your r4 version.
there are many.

have you put the right firmware on your r4?
original : http://r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html

r4 revolution pro : http://www.r4dspro.com/download_en.html
r4 ultra and de luxe : http://www.r4deluxe.com/en/down.asp
r4 III : http://www.r4dsl.net/download-en.asp

after that it should work.
or maybe you should format your memory card first.
