Are you looking in the correct folder on the card, if your Uncle is anything like me he's probably copied the games into a directory on the card to keep them away from the system files. Check that the files that you've copied on are are in the same directory as the ones which your Uncle copied on and then try again.

Had to format memory card what do i need to run r4 and memorycard


You will need to download and reinstall the R4 firmware.
After downloading and decompressing the new updated files, there will be one shell folder and two files _DS_MENU.DAT, and _DS_MSHL.NDS.Copy these files to the root directory of TF card to replace the former files (ex. F:\ or E:\).

You can download the update files and firmware here:

I bought a ra(ndsl/nds ) for my ds lite and


Mine works fine!!
Download English 1.18 from the R4 website.
Unzip
You should have 4 files on your card
_system_
moonshell
_DS_MENU_DAT
_DS_MSH_NDS
you then add the .nds game files from wherever you get them from
Make sure the card is formatted first, ie there are no other files on it. try FAT. rather than FAT 32. I can't remember which but I've had no problems with either the card or the software, best thing since sliced bread, and it only cost me a tenner.

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.

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

Freezed on loading screen !!!!!!!!!


Hi, the original R4 revolution will only worked up to kernel 1.16 or 1.17 or 1.18 (cant remember its one of them). Anything that is higher than that are for the R4 SDHC and others (different type). R4 Cards can be pretty confusing as there are many types (original v2, v3, SDHC, supercard...etc) and they all have their own website. Cant remember the link to the original one but you can get the software at http://nds-gear.com/software-r4v2.zip

Hopefully this one should work for you

Cant use ROM's in my NDS and R4


Hi Patrik,

I have had this problem with several R4 cards that i have mended for friends. Basicly what is happening is a file known as an ARM7 file is not being read properly.

There are a few ways around this problem.
  • You can download a NDS patcher/unpacker and unpack/repack the game that is giving you problems and replace the ARM7 file with one from a working game. (the unpacker will generally come with a working ARM7 file) i use one from GTA chinatown wars.

  • You can go to the torrent site and look for the game you are havong problems with and 9/10 you will find one saying 'R4 fix'

This is a link to a decent site that helps if you wanted to try it for yourself. http://cupevampe.blogspot.com/2007/12/how-to-patch-nintendo-ds-rom-tutorial.html

Good luck
