This sounds like a problem with the card. I would recommend that you send it back to where you came from and ask for a replacement.

When turning nintendo ds lite on it comes up with this message System date error! Please check NDS system date.


it is just an eol (End Of Live) in the software of your ds card.
Plug out your ds and remove your r4 card.
Plug on your ds and change the date to 2009.
Plug out your ds and insert your r4 cart.
Plug on your ds and you can play again.
Now there wil be new software on the internet who is an update on the old software, so if you want to renew your software ist there on the net.

System date error! please check NDS system date


It's a bug issue in the firmware of the R4 cards. Won't work after 14 april 2010 unless you update the firmware of the R4 card.
For the time being you can set back the date before 14 april 2010 and it wil work directly.

I have a Super Card R4 Revolution 3 for DS cartridge. What firmware do I need to run DS Games?? Will it work with a 4GB SDHC card?


Hello,

The original "R4v2" card will only work with Micro-SD cards up to 2GB. However, R4 SDHC and R4v3 cards WILL accept 4GB cards and above.

To identify which version you have, check out this guide

http://www.r4dsrevolution.co.uk/content/download-r4-software

That should hopefully sort you out!

If you are looking for a reliable place to buy DS and DSi cards from that will stock originals, I'd recommend using http://www.NDS-Gear.com (I've used them myself). They test every card before sending which means you won't receive dud cards, and more importantly they have support before AND after your purchase by people who reply very quickly and in perfect English. Some of these dodgy websites take 4-6 weeks to deliver and never answer e-mails, so I'm glad these guys are different. Oh, and they guarantee to dispatch by the next working day, which always helps with speed and all. And they're recommended by a lot of the DS card help sites, too.

Good luck!

Hi there can any 1 help i have a r4 card installed the program and games but nds keeps on saying no ds card inserted is it faulty thanx


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.

Ds shuts down whenr4 inserted


You should check if the R4 card is actually R4 SDHC, because the firmware of R4DS is not compatible with it. If it is SDHC, go to this website http://rs320.rapidshare.com/files/140174805/English-1.21.zip to download the firmware for your card. If there are any roms on it, you should save them somewhere else, for you have to format the card first (do this in windows by going to 'this computer', then right-clicking on the SD card from your R4 and then select 'format'. Warning! Never select 'quick format'! This could do damage). Now your card is completely empty. Copy the files you just downloaded and unzipped to the card (5 files; _system_, moonshl, _DS_MENU.DAT, _DS_MENU.INI and _DS_MSHL.NDS). Now put the SD card in the R4 and it should work properly :) I had the same problem, and I have just solved it *grin*. I hope this was useful.
