This sounds like a problem with the MicroSD card in the R4. Some brands have been known to be incompatible. Without knowing more information about the R4 and the SD card
A couple of years ago, I had three microSD cards fail, even reformatting failed. I believe it was a problem with the R4's at the time. Try reformatting the microSD card in a PC, download the latest kernel and load that on to the microSD card, if you can get it to format.
Failing that, buy a new SD card. SanDisk/Transcend and Kingston are the preferred and recommended types. Is this an R4 or R4-SDHC? Don't use an SDHC(4gb+) memory card in a R4, only in R4-SDHC.
Memory cards are cheap enough 1gb-2gb don't cost that much, if you have an R4-SDHC then try a 4gb
I take it it was working at some point or other, or is this a new card?
dont buy the R4 gold pal dont work properly what you need is this site R4i.com they have the new R4 card that works with the 1.4update its really good mine works fine and i just brought a dsi last week.
1. Go to http://www.r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html
and download the kernal.
2. ONce downloaded copy the files onto the R4 card.
3. When you put the R4 card in again it should come up with a menu.
4. When you want to put games on just create a new file called games and fill it up.
good luck and if it works please rate me.
it may need different kernel software, mine runs kernel v1. 22 from this website, hope this helps, oh mine also stayed on loading screen until i learned that wen i downloaded the kernel software i only extracted the files inside the folder, u must extract the folder the files come in too, extract all and works, dont ask why? lol. good luk, www.r4new.cn/download-en.htm
Im not 100% sure about this...I own a R4 myself. What I do notice if you use the wrong type of SD Card(Anything above 2GB) or use it in the wrong type of R4(SDHC Kernel in a Non-SDHC Card) It tends to get stuck at that loading screen.
Sometimes you can remedy this by taking the R4 out and the sd card out and using a air can or blowing on the parts in between(inside the DS, Inside the R4) and try it and it will sometimes fix that. Also a corrupted transfer of the kernel or a bad kernel can do that too.
