R4 card for nds....stuck on loading screen....

But dont think this is a usual case of the 'right firmware' etc.
my mum was playing on a game....it suddenly stopped. she turned off the ds, re-powered, but just gets a loading screen. wont go any further than that.
so i put the 2gb micro sd into the kingston sd adapter that came with it put it into the computer....opened it up...to find absolutly nothing, all the files are gone etc. when right clicked and properties....it says the sd is almost full....yet shows no files.
and when trying to add an nds file (a game i had downloaded on the the comp) i get this mesage: cannot copy..(name of file)..the directory or file cannot be created....also get the same thing if i click add new folder etc. so is the problem with the micro sd or am i missing something!!!

basically nothing can be added to the micro....and the micro is showing up empty. so all the other solutions....to back up games, format, and add all the firmware stuff etc, isnt going to work!!

i also dont have another micro sd card to test on the pc or ds.......does anyone else have this problem....and do u know how to fix it!!!???

    but how do you delete the kernal when no files are showing up. You need to be able to free up space on the card to be able to reinstall a new kernal. What do you do?

My r4 card did work but now doesnt i just get menu? in a red box that looks like a sd card


Hey there,

The "Menu?" screen is unfortuantely a sign that you have a fake R4 card, because the real one should have "Loading..." as an error message. The "Menu?" screen is a copy from the DSTT firmware and shouldn't be on an R4 card.

You can buy genuine cards from either DSCardWorld.com or NDS-Gear.com - although nds-gear is a bit cheaper shipping wise if you live outside the U.S.

Good luck!

Dsi system date error please check NDS system date appears when i try and load the R4 card


Update of your R4 firmware is required. There is a bug in the older versions.
For the time being you can change back the date before the 14th of April and you can play directly.

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.

Need to know how to get games to work with my r4 ds revoultion card.downlosded software but cant get games to work .do i have to extract them?


First get the R4 OS installed onto the card (into the root dir), then make a sub directory called NDS. Put your .NDS files into that directory. you should now have a couple of sub dirs, NDS, Moonshl2, and r4iMenu or something similar. and some r4 OS files in the root directory.

R4 should boot, then pick the left icon (games) and load a game from the resulting list.

Yes you must extract the files. It won't play from a zip file. all files must end in .NDS for them to work. There are a lot of cool homebrew out there for these cards, have fun.

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

SCREEN LOADING


Format the memory card.
Create from the root a folder called "SYSTEM" and a folder called "NDS".
Copy the systemfiles into SYSTEM and the games with the .nds extension in the NDS folder.
That must working. If not, go to your R4 seller and ask a replacement.

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.
