Hello Wezzer,

The R4III was a poor clone to begin with, it might just decided to fail. It's important to do your research and get a card like the R4 SDHC from a manufacturer who's in it for the long term and keeps updating their cards.

If you're looking to get genuine cards for your ds (there are fakes out there), take a look here, http://www.dscardworld.com. 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. US based support and shipping I believe.

Hope it all works out for you.

R4 card shows 'loading' and wil go to next screen on NDS. SD card works in other r$ so its not the card. Any ideas?


Sounds like you have the wrong firmware on the R4 card. I had a similar problem when I swapped cards with my granddaughter. I had the "R4 Revolution....etc" card and she had a "R4 Upgrade Revolution....etc". They look the same but un beknown to me they need different firmware!!

For the R4 you should using kernel R4 DS v1.18
http://www.r4ds.me/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html

For the R4 Upgrade this should be R4-III v3.13

Caplio R4 won't recognise 4GB SDHC card? - OK with my old 2GB SD card. Anyway to adjust it?


The R4 uses SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into SD slots, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. They are upward compatible in that SD cards will work in SDHC devices, but not the other way around. Unfortunately, that's in the hardware and cannot be changed in firmware or with any simple adjustment. You'll have to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I have a r4 revolution for ds and the 2gb mini sandisk that slots in to a usb key however my laptop nor my pc will recognise when the usb is inserted in to the computer. The computer recognises other usb's...


Hello guy,

It sounds like your micro sd card is bad. Can you get a hold of anew one and test it out? If that works fine but your R4 still doesn't work then you might have a bad fake.

If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card like the R4 SDHC there too. http://www.dscardworld.com 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. They test each card before sending them. US based support and shipping I believe.

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.

Ds shuts down whenr4 inserted


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.

R4 card


1- If you are using the same card in both cards and only work in the R4 deluxe then your R4 SDHC need different system files to work.

2- If you are using different cards with different system files for each one then the files would be corrupted, download them again from R4 site; or your SD memory need to be formatted to fat32 for your SDHC R4.
