There's a great tutorial on how to set up a card http://www.dscardworld.com with pictures and links to all the official software.

If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card there too. I managed to find this site after I got burned at a few others. Loved having my emails responded to because I had loads of questions, and they were quick to ship it.

Best of luck!

DS doens't recoginize R4 card in my sons DS Lite. My other sons DS does recoginize the R4 card. Why? how can I get the card to work in both DS Lites.


Make sure you bought the correct R4 for the DS light and not the DSi. If you bought the correct one, then it sounds like the R4 cartridge is defective and needs to be exchanged for another one. Remember, Nintendo does not support the R4 cartridge, so go back to where you purchased it from.

I have just bought R4 SDHC Upgrade Revolution for DS card and sd I have downloaded the new Kernell and put my games on the sd card. When I put the card in the ds lite there is a red menu light and that is...


When you copied the R4 software to the SD card you either missed something or put something in the wrong place. This is the most likely cause of nothing happening when you turn on your DS. It's also possible that you are using an oder version of the software. Follow the link provided.

Ds does not recognise R4


Try eject, blow into the port then reinsert. There is a possibility that your ds has blocked the r4 from being used on that ds.

Hello there,

Unfortunately, this is a common problem to do with the actual contacts on the back of your R4 card. A small minority of Nintendo DS Lite units have the contacts points set SLIGHTLY further back, meaning the contact is bad.

Try experimenting by putting a folded piece of paper in-between the R4 card and the red Nintendo DS Lite when you play it, and notice that it should play now. You can permanently wedge a small piece of paper inside the R4 card itself by carefully taking off the cover, putting the paper in, and putting the cover back. This ought to solve your problem.

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.

Best of luck!

DS Lite - Game card recognition


there is an error with the ds itself, you will have to get it sent off for repairs or find a nearby gaming repair shop

Hey rorufer,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, Nintendo products made for use within the U.S. are not desgined for overseas use. This unfortunately means that games purchased within the U.S. may not function correctly when used in a DS Lite purchased in Europe.

Some of the most common reasons why this restriction would be in place are potential language barriers (for warnings, operating instructions and disclaimers), as well as differing government regulations between the two regions regarding the product's warranty or potential safety/electrical concerns.

While some users may report cross-compatiblity between foreign consoles and select game titles, this cannot be guaranteed in every instance. Nintendo itself has suggested only purchasing games for the DS Lite (and other consoles) in the region where the DS Lite itself is purchased.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
