My R4 menu screen went black.

Hi! I have a problem with my R4. when I turn my ds lite on, it does work like always but then the theme went to a black screen, the games are stil here but all the writing has disappeared but the icons of the games ar still here. When I want to change the settings, I can't because the writing in the settings is gone and in the _rpg file, there is some change, it's not like before. I really need to change those settings please if you know the answer tell me.

R4 in NDSL freezing

The only thing i can suggest is to go to the site that is on your card and download the new firmware for your card, it maybe that you just need to update your card, if that dont work you may need to buy a new card, i would not leave your card in the nds if you are not using it for a while, take it out, dont leave it in the nds, it maybe that the contacts are worn.

New Ds lite doesn't start after using R4 card

Me thinks you have the wrong R4 software installed on the chip....

I've done a few of these and all worked fine,,,, even a R4 III which was a tricky little number...... if it is the R4 III - i went for the older software and it worked,,,,, the new version failed on me.

I'll report back here in 30 mins....
