Ds says couldn't find_ds_menu-DAT


This is an error from an R4 Card. You need to reinstall the firmware for your r4 onto your micro sd card. The firmware can be downloaded for free on the manufacturers site usually written on the front of the cardand on the box . As i dont know which version of the r4 you have i cant give you a link for the exact firmware to use.

Deleted the "ds_menu.dat" how can i get it back


When you mean the DS_MENU.DAT, do you mean the menu on your R4? You can get it back, and I have links, but unfortunately that file has not been updated since April 2008. Here is the link however: http://r4ds.cn/download/118/English-1.18.rar

Insalling m3 resl deal but cant find DS MENU .dat


apparently m3 dont do upgrades now but this might help http://www.m3-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=312
basically it converts the r4 ds menu.dat to work on m3 simply (may work for m3 real) so now all you have to do is go to r4 download site and download latest version. 1.18 from here http://www.r4dscart.com/r4-software.html (select the english update) then patch ur dat file replace it back to where you took it from before patching and then copy all 4 files ( _system_ moonshi _ds_menu.dat _ds_mshl.nds) into the root of micro sd card. advise you to copy any files/games you have on your mem card then copy the games over to your newly installed firmware. oh by the way in the link i provided on how2 patch the ds_menu.dat it might be bit vague on where you put the ds_menu.dat file to patch it, all you do is drag and drop it into the PATCH app thats inside the "r4 to m3 patcher" folder. post a reply to let me know how you got on

Menu will not load


plug your usb for r4 in (with the adaptor) . go to "My Computer" , select "Removable Desk (F:)" .

when you do, look for _DS_MENU.DAT, if you cant find it, thats the reason for your R4 not working. if you found it, but your r4 is still not working, you've lost some systems for the R4, such as DS MSHL etc.

if you have, i advise you buy a new adaptor.

Menu.dat issue


the _DS_MENU.DAT could not be found bcuz you guys probably deleted it or edited it accidentally. if you edited it, put it back to its normal self right away. for example, it was _DS_MENU.DAT.
if you edit it to look like, DS Menu.Dat , your R4 wont work. so fix it to its original self.

Couldn't dind ds-menu.dat using R4 card


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.
