Endless loading, no game playing

I have recently bought a R4 DS card, with a kingston 2gb MicroSD card. I was using the v1.18 kernal as well. It froze after playing on a game for about 10 mins, and after that would get stuck on loading or wouldn't load the games from the menu. I've had my DS for about 2 years (so warrenty is deffo run out).
I sent the R4 card back to my supplier who tested it and sent it back (therefore i assume they had no problems). Is it my DS? Or is the R4 defective and they just didn't test it long enough? Please help! I tried several games and none of them worked. yes

It is still much important to use \original games rather than be dependent on using R4s..in the long run it will just disappoint you and corrupt your DS program..dont risk the value of your money with a greater service..

My r4 card comes up as alex rider stormbreaker and then when i click on it it comes up as loading. please help


Recently, R4 cards have been malfuntioning. It has something to do with the programming of more recent ds games. If you want to play newer games, you're SOL. Sorry. You can continue to play older games, however.

R4 ,When switching on ,SD error shows then


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?

You will need to get the kernel from the R4 SDHC website, because it is actually a fake card, that R4 do not want people using.

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.

R4 sdhc new keep saying loading


I beleive it only supports up to 4gigs. So you need to use a 4gig or lower sized card.
