You have to empty the trash on the computer to actually fully delete the files from the r4 then you''ll have the extra room.

How do i get deleted games back on ds r4 card cause little sister deleted some of the best games like mario kart ds and cooking mama and also super mario!!! im so angry !!! plz plz plz plz help me plz...


Cards like R4 allow you to store multiple games on one card. So when you start your DS, you choose which game you want to play and do not have to take all your games with you. The R4 relies on a microSD card to keep track of the games and save files. Your actual game, you should be able to recover from the original game cartridge (since you do actually own the game).

To recover your game progress (save file), you can put the microSD card in your PC (using the appropriate adapter) and just have a recovery program look for the files on the microSD card. There are several good FREE file recovery softwares on the internet. They will likely be your only shot a recovering your game progress but that depends on how much you've used your R4. If you have used it a lot, your save game may have been overwrite which means it is lost for good.

Whatever you do, do not do anything illegal.

R4 "loading" problem


Try re-installing the operating system onto the card. Go to www.r4ds.com download & unzip the kernel. This will create a folder with the operating system.Copy these files to the root of the SD card (There should be 2 files & 2 folders) After this, copy the .nds files also onto the root of the SD card, and the games should be visible & playable when you turn on the DS 
NOTE: this will not work for the Nintendo DSi

Unable to read sd card


Hi grecko, Hope this helps, I've just bought a 4gb memory card for my daughter's ds so she can fit 58-60 games instead of 28 on a 2gb memory card and have downloaded and put a file onto the memory card before loading games onto it.

Supercard DS one have a site where you can download the files you need and it gives help. Guess it's the same if using an R4 supercard too but I bought an R4 card for partner preloaded with software.

I'm not sure what you're doing wrong. The only things I can recommend is plugging in the little memory card from the r4 sdhc into the computer and deleting everything BUT the games folder. Move the games folder to your desktop with Cut+Paste. Once you've deleted everything from your r4 SDHC folder (Moonshell, etc.), download the newest software for the r4 sdhc from this site: http://r4sdhc.com/soft/32-en.htm and choose for the download address English Kernel. Once it's downloaded, extract the files from the .zip by right clicking it and selecting extract *to do this you require WinRAR, which is free you and you can download by typing 'WinRAR on google. It depends on the company that made your laptop/computer, it might be already installed.* Copy all of the files into your r4 SDHC memory card and also the games file that I told you to put on your desktop earlier. Now, take the memory card out of your computer, turn on your ds, and voila, it should be working. If not, then it's a problem with the games themselves you've downloaded. Make sure that in any site you visit to download NDS rom games, in the title or somewhere it says US or USA and not K or J or EUR or something like that so that it's in English.
-Hope that little wall of text helped! ;)

How to fixce


Well it sounds like he's using something like an r4 which is just a ds adapter for a memory card. You'll probably need to take the memory card from the adapter and with another adapter or if you have built in card reader plug in to pc. It's most likely a micro sd.

When trying to load a certain game from my r4 card,it say's insufficiant memory, how do i delete whats on the memory to make way for new data.


you need to put the memory card in the adaptor and put it in your computer, then delete games you dont play/dont like. You have too many games. This happened to me. Usually deleting 1 game will do it sometimes 2 depending on the size.

Cannot find menu dat file


To format any drive just insert the memory, right click over your memory drive in My PC window, and there should be an option to Format this drive, formatting will erase all the card contents so make a backup in your computer first.

When you click on "format" a window will appear to chose FAT or FAT32 (try FAT32 first then if not working try FAT), dont have to do nothing on the size option, write a label for the drive if you want, not needed, let Quick Format clear, click on start button and you'll see a proccess bar, when it finish it tell you and you have a formatted drive.

Put the sistem files and one rom to test again in the memory, test it on your DS. Be sure you have the right files for your card, the www.R4ds.cn site only supports R4 cards, not R4 III, R4 SDHC or any fake non R4 hardware.

DS game memory is full, how do i delete


Okay i can help i have an R4 and it works perfect except for my left <- button... i hate that button never really liked it... okay anyways to delete some games that you dislike or whatever take out the chip and in the chip should be a little small chip and put in a USB thing to upload games on. So what you have to do is access the DS game chip R4 or w/e access it and you should delete the games that are not needed simple!
Hope this helps
