My ds will turn on fine but the back screens wont light up why?


is there any problem about the r4 card? I suggest you to follow the steps as below

Instructions

1 Insert the microSD card into the slot in the SD card adapter.

2 Insert the SD card adapter into the SD card reader attached to your computer or into your computer's media port.

3 Open "My Computer."

4 Open the SD card "removable disk" drive and copy any files you want to keep to your computer. Formatting the card will erase all of the information.

5 Right-click on the SD card drive.

6 Select "Format."

7 Select "FAT32" format for the card. This should be set by default.

8 Click "Start" to reformat the card.

If it is still black screen, the card may be broken, and you should purchase a new one. And here is the best plact to go http://r4-3.com

When i put my r4 into my ds its just says cant find menu?


hi it sounds like a software problem. follow the following instructions. Please can you try and reformat the 2gb micro sd card in your pc and copy firmware from the CD back onto the 2gb micro sd card following the instructions below. be warned that formating will remove even the games from the card so make sure you have a backup of the games saved to your computer. any saved games will also be erased.

To format the 2gb micro sd card
1. Insert sd card into usb stick and into usb port.
2. Close autoplay screen if it appears.
3. Right click on removeable drive. (Eg D, E, F or J etc) that appeared on screen in computer window.
4. Left click on format in menu and when format window appears, tick quick format box and select ok. This will erase all content on the sd card and remove any corrupt firmware.

To reload firmware
1. Insert cd into pc cd/dvd drive.
2. Open cd drive on screen and copy and paste the files and folders from the system/english 1.18 folder on the cd to the removeable drive that the usb and micro sd card are in. The folders that you will copy are "_system_" and "moonshl" and the files will be "menu.dat" and "mshl.nds".
3. Once copied, check removeable drive to ensure files and folders have copied over.
4. Remove usb stick from pc and insert sd card back into R4. R4 menu should appear on DS screen.
this normaly sorts this out. paul

How do I insert my r4 card?


the normal ds does work with the original ds, i have 3. lol. the r4 cart goes in the top of the ds in slot 1, it obviously about the same size as the r4 cart, have ur ds so it facinf downwards to the ground, and insert the game facing upwards so you can see the r4 wording on it, slot all way in until it clicks in, then power up.

MicroSD Card not being read, SanDisk 2GB MicroSD Card


I don't think there is a problem with the card itself. The slot might be dusty. Try and blow into the slot and then blow the card itself.
