Deleted the "ds_menu.dat" how can i get it back


When you mean the DS_MENU.DAT, do you mean the menu on your R4? You can get it back, and I have links, but unfortunately that file has not been updated since April 2008. Here is the link however: http://r4ds.cn/download/118/English-1.18.rar

R4 Problem loading error


Get this file extract the file with winrar, and copy the files to the DS card. The file structure should have is:
Files
  • _DS_MENU.DAT
  • _DS_MSHL.NDS
Folders
  • _system_
  • moonshl
You should now put your .nds files onto the root of the card also, and hopefully all should work OK for you

Insalling m3 resl deal but cant find DS MENU .dat


apparently m3 dont do upgrades now but this might help http://www.m3-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=312
basically it converts the r4 ds menu.dat to work on m3 simply (may work for m3 real) so now all you have to do is go to r4 download site and download latest version. 1.18 from here http://www.r4dscart.com/r4-software.html (select the english update) then patch ur dat file replace it back to where you took it from before patching and then copy all 4 files ( _system_ moonshi _ds_menu.dat _ds_mshl.nds) into the root of micro sd card. advise you to copy any files/games you have on your mem card then copy the games over to your newly installed firmware. oh by the way in the link i provided on how2 patch the ds_menu.dat it might be bit vague on where you put the ds_menu.dat file to patch it, all you do is drag and drop it into the PATCH app thats inside the "r4 to m3 patcher" folder. post a reply to let me know how you got on

R4 Deluxe Cards


OK, my kids have the R4, iam not sure its the Deluxe one, but they look same as yours, anyway i went and downloaded the newest version of R4 software from here
h**p://r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html, now change ** to tt, (http) in the link.
Now with the older version a lot of the games did not work, when i downloaded the newest version
(english kernel v1.18) most of them worked, and make sure you read that web page.
----- How to update R4?
After downloading and decompressing the new updated files, there will be one shell folder and two files _DS_MENU.DAT、 _DS_MSHL.NDS.Copy these files to the root directory of TF(the memory card in R4) card to replace the former files(i suggest to cut and paste old system kernel file from yours to a folder, then put the new ones in).
this one worked for me for most of the games. thanks

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.

Hi ,I purchased ab Ique nintendo DS lite through the net. It came with a cd and a R$ SDHC 4 gb card.The instructions indicated to update the kernel from the language folder in the CD.These were not found...


when downloading kernal of the latest version ie 1.21 you will only be able to use this software with the updated R4 which is the R4 V2 SC which is has only been released in August 08 in uk. The old R4 wont work and you just get the loading screen. for the old R4 you need the 1.19 version. My kids have different versions as I got them 6 months apart and it took ages to work out why one would work but not the other!

r4 revolution pro : http://www.r4dspro.com/download_en.html
r4 ultra and de luxe : http://www.r4deluxe.com/en/down.asp
r4 III : http://www.r4dsl.net/download-en.asp

after that it should work.
