Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

Games will not list in DS even though downloaded onto SD Card.

Have an R4 Card which was working perfectly last night, switched on this morning and the games list has vanished??? Checked the SD card and all the games are listed. The DS recognises that the R4 card is inserted it is just the list of games which has gone. HELP PLEASE.

Maybe you pressed the "select" button in the explorer screen on your DS. when you are in ds explorer-like screen make sure that in the top of the upper screen you see "Games". if not, tra press the "select" button, it will cycle between "Saves", "Games", "ebook" and "files"
if you read in the upper screen "ebook" and you do not have any ebook in your card the screen remain empty

hope this should solve your issue

Try plugging the memory card into your computer and checking that the files still exist. It is possible to delete files from the memory card whilst it is plugged into your DS.

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

There are two things this could be. Either the R4 is broken or some file on the SD card is corrupted. I would try Re-formating the Micro SD card first. Make sure to back up all of your game save first though. I hope I helped.

Ds i have a r4 which already has games loaded onto


Insert your sd card into the computer/laptop using the sd card adapter and open the file then click on the file named games. Downlaod your games you want from online sites and put them into the folder named gamnes.here you can also delete the already existing games or even add music by creating a new folder called music not in the games folder though.

When I turn on my r4 (2 gigs) there is this weird


put ur sd card onto the computer and make sure the games are still on the sd card, then wipe ur sd card after puttging the games into a separate file on ur compputer.

Make sure they are in .nds format if not they wont work , then downlaod new r4 software and put it onto ur sd card, then make a folder called "games" and put the games back on in the folder called games.

Also if the problem occurred after u have recently downloaded a new game i would delete the new game cos it may have a virus
:) hope this helps.!
