    My Nintendo DS is two months old. All of a sudden the top screen is showing as a mirrored image. (BACK TO FRONT). I have tried switching it off, taking out the battery and putting it back in. None of this seems to do any good. Has anyone else come across this problem?

Find the supported ROMS for that card on the manufacturers site to be sure its supported without conflicts. There you can also find a FAQ.

Download the ROM again to make sure the file is not corrupted or fake. Sometimes the roms are not compatible or need a patch or fix to work on certain hardware.

Good Luck...

My ds freezes when loading the R4, or it says that there is no game in the ds slot

Stuck on Loading Screen This usually indicates that the software kernel on the micro sd memory card has become corrupted. It can also happen if the micro sd memory card is overloaded with games, music and video files etc. The solution is to reinstall the kernel software on the micro sd card and ensure the micro sd memory card is not overloaded. Leave about 25% memory free.
download SDformatter and format the sd card with that, place all the files on there, none in folders..
  • Download the correct software kernel from the manufacturers website
  • Unzip the files using a suitable programme such as Win Zip or 7 Zip.
  • Open the folder containing the unzipped files and copy the 4 files (Moonmemo, Moonshl2, R4iMenu and R4.dat) to the root of the memory card.
  • At this point put the memory card into your R4 card. Start your console and ensure the R4 card is operating correctly.
  • You may have to run an upgrade file at this point

Nitendo DS lite how to play music using R4 revolution DS on my

First you need to make sure you have the current firmware for the R4 card loaded onto the micro-sd card. I know that some R4 cards only accept up to a 2gb memory card so check and make sure you are using the correct micro card with the R4. When you have downloaded the firmware for your card you need to make some folders. Label them games...movies... music... etc.. making a folder for each one. Put the Mp3 files in the correct folder. When you use your R4 you will see three icons at the startup screen go to the one labeled multi-media... Moonshell will run the movies/music... you are ready to go ... hope this helps

Tried to download software for r4 micro sd card 4gb sh but does'nt work.comes on the ds loading ,works fine with 2gb sd card,any ideas? thank's colin

Hey there Colin,

The original R4 card only works with Micro-SD cards up to 2GB in size. To use Micro-SD cards up to 32GB, you need to buy the newer R4 SDHC card or a Nintendo DSi comaptible card. Check out R4 Cards / R4 DS Cards from or (NDS-Gear is probably better if you live in Europe or Canada as their shipping's slightly better internationally).

Good luck!

When i turned on my ds, it says "couldn't find ds_MENUdat

It sounds like you need to figure out exactly what kind of DS card you have. Check out's DS Card Setup Guide which should sort you out.

Also, I recommend only buying genuine cards since a lot of the fakes tend to break quite easily. Maybe from or from if you're in Canada/Europe since their international shipping's a bit cheaper

Good luck!

Unable to read sd card

Hi grecko, Hope this helps, I've just bought a 4gb memory card for my daughter's ds so she can fit 58-60 games instead of 28 on a 2gb memory card and have downloaded and put a file onto the memory card before loading games onto it.

Supercard DS one have a site where you can download the files you need and it gives help. Guess it's the same if using an R4 supercard too but I bought an R4 card for partner preloaded with software.
