Question about Nintendo DS Lite

2 Answers

I loaded the firmware from v.1.18 but R4 rom not loading...

I have loaded the required firmware from v.1.18 onto my 4gb micro sd card. I have uploaded roms and unzipped them, then loaded the unzipped game file. I put the sd micro card into my R4 and all it says is "loading" on a black screen. Nothing happens. I have watched every tutorial I can find and I can't see what could be wrong.

Any ideas?

I bought R4 cards for DSlite and 4gmicrosd formatted sd to fat downloaded kernels for R4 loaded games onto sd card put all together all I get in the Dslite is loading...nothing more it will not go any...


Hi denise, amh, could you please specify what r4 model you got? because there are lot of R4 out there, but the original R4 team had stopped producing R4's, all we have mostly today are clones. now some R4 only recognize up to 2GB of sd/micro sd cards, try using 2GB then see if that works..

My ds keeps saying loading when i insert r4 card


Make sure you have the correct kernel loaded onto the card. Also some r4 cards only accept up to a limited amount of gb's. I think mine only can hold up to a 2gb sd micro card. When I first used it I was using a 4gb card and it would stick on the loading screen until I loaded everything onto a 2gb card .... hope this helps

New R4 card wont work !!!!


First make sure you have the correct kernel for the card. Go to the website where you purchased it and download the current firmware. Next copy all of that onto the micro sd card. Build folders in you sd card, very simple right click...new folder... enter... then label them correctly .. Label one movies... music... games.. etc... then put your files into the correct folders.. Another common error is that people use to high of a sd card.... some r4 cards only accept up to a 2gb micro card If you use one that is too big it will stick on the loading screen ... If none of this works reload all the software onto the card and start from scratch... hope this helps

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

A NEW NDSL R4 REVOLUTION 3 FOR DS WILL NOT RUN


i have a ndsl r4 ver 3
and had it some time,

they are alittle fussy at times,

But go to www.ndslr4.com download v1.25 English


This should solve the problem or at least ease it,

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.

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.
