Hello there,

There are three potential problems:

1. Your DS Lite unit isn't working properly. Experiment with a Nintendo cartridge and see if the same thing happens. An R4 card will NOT affect your DS Lite in this way.

2. You are playing a game that requires you, at some point, to press A+B+X+Y+L+R. If you push these six buttons together, your DS Lite would perform a 'soft reset' as it's an R4 function. However, this is the ONLY time it would reset, not any other.

3. Your R4 is faulty and not reading game files correctly. If you are looking for a reliable place to buy DS and DSi cards from that will stock originals, I'd recommend using http://www.NDS-Gear.com (I've used them myself). They test every card before sending which means you won't receive dud cards, and more importantly they have support before AND after your purchase by people who reply very quickly and in perfect English. Some of these dodgy websites take 4-6 weeks to deliver and never answer e-mails, so I'm glad these guys are different. Oh, and they guarantee to dispatch by the next working day, which always helps with speed and all. And they're recommended by a lot of the DS card help sites, too.

Good luck!

On my r4i ver 1.3, i was unable to play many games as most of the games when loading comes out with a white screen. is the reason due to the games download being corrupted? i am able to play some game...


it is beacuse the games are more recent/newer than the r4 version 1.3 so it cant support thewm, all you need 2 do is go onto the r4 offical site and download the newest r4 version and then the games will/ should work fine :)
Hope this helped!

R4 plays games in my sisters ds but card wont play games in mine?


This may be fo a number of reasons. First of all this may be because the connections are not clean. So wipe the connections on the R4 card if neccesary. If this doesn't work unscrew your R4 card and place a small piece of paper underneath the chicp. This will raise the connection ribbons and make better contact with the ds. Next you should make sure your card is not corupted. Install the latest firmware. Hope this helps.

You may have to power on and off a few times, take the R4 out everytime you do this, but once it works it works well, i have over 165 games on one R4.

You have to put the R4 v1.18 kernel on the memory card for it to work.
