Be aware that there are 2ost identical r4 versions.So if updating your software doesnt work you may have a R4v2 wich will only work with v1.18 or lower .Currently the latest software is v1.25 and wont work on these R4's. http://www.nds-gear.com/whichcard.shtml may give you an idea

Worked for me:-)

R4 card will not load in ds stuck on loading...help


Hello Sixxy,

A loading screen freeze usually means that there's the wrong version of the software installed. You have to make sure it was made for your specific model of R4, and there are a few out there like the R4 SDHC.

You need to put the correct software onto the card otherwise there's nothing for the r4 to load.

There's a great tutorial to set it up on http://www.dscardworld.com with pictures and links to all the official software on their support page. And I noticed they made a video about it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QV4sNQf2uS4

But they might not have your exact card model's software. If you check the packaging of your flash card there should be a manufacturer's website on it that will have the latest official software for your particular flash card. Or you can check the list of R4 card types here for their manufacturer's websites http://www.r4dsrevolution.co.uk

R4 card getting stuck at "loading"


it is probably because your sister has a different version of R4. They are the same things, but your sister might have an earlier version than you do. This is because, some versions dont work with some ds lites while others do.

R4 card just says loading in my ds and sd card works on other r4


Try re-loading the frimware on the SD card or loading a newer version. I have found that some firmware does not work on some R4 cards. Has this R4 ever worked? Also inspect the R4 for damage, my nephews R4 wasn't working and the problem was a bite mark on the unit

Freezed on loading screen !!!!!!!!!


Hi, the original R4 revolution will only worked up to kernel 1.16 or 1.17 or 1.18 (cant remember its one of them). Anything that is higher than that are for the R4 SDHC and others (different type). R4 Cards can be pretty confusing as there are many types (original v2, v3, SDHC, supercard...etc) and they all have their own website. Cant remember the link to the original one but you can get the software at http://nds-gear.com/software-r4v2.zip

Hopefully this one should work for you

New R4 card never loads


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.

R4 card


Could be the R4 is not coming into contact with the connections inside the DS.Try putting the r4 in the Ds then using a piece of paper folded a couple of times down inside the slot between the ds and the r4 to push the connection pins together a bit better.
