    DSis frozen on "loading"when i insert R4 card

  • sandramor781 Feb 23, 2009

    I had the same problem and took me ages to sort out,i bought a R4 Version 3,dowloaded the filmware which was 1.25,unzipped the file and then put it on the 4gb sd card but it still would'nt work,but in the end found out that you had to delete the file called r4 1.25 that was on the sd card for it to work,because when you open your file it should go straight to the files you just unzipped,i think there is usually 4 or 5,if there is a folder called 1.25 or any other like 1.24 delete that file then see if it works,because thats what i did and it works fine now,It also best if you make a folder called games to drop and drag your games to as well,hope this was some help.

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

DS R4 card keeps freezing-- help!?


Hell Xin,

It seems like you got the R4 SDHC, but not the original one I'm afraid. The original one is from www.r4sdhc.com, and it is a better supported product.

You could try reformatting your micro sd card and see if that's unstable, but if not I'd recommend getting a new R4. If you do suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card there too. http://www.dscardworld.com I managed to find this site after I got burned at a few others.

Loved having my emails responded to because I had loads of questions, and they were quick to ship it. They test each card before sending them. US based support and shipping I believe.

Best of luck!

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.

Keeps coming up with save file can't be found.


As you have not really gone into specifics, I am going to have to assume that you are using an R4 cartridge to run your games.

When you switch on your DS with an R4 in it, a number should come up in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. This indicates which firmware version you are using. The latest is v1.18 and it can be downloaded from here if you are not already using it....

http://r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html

When you have unzipped the file, copy it to your R4 card replacing all the duplicate files.

This should significantly improve your R4's compatibility with newer roms (e.g. Football Director, America's Next Top Model etc) compared to earlier firmware versions.

There will still be a minority of games that don't work (e,g, Worms 2 Open Warfare and The Hulk), but solutions to individual games not working can be found on websites such as http://gbatemp.net in the forum section.

Good luck!
