Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
I have the R4i3DS RTS. I downloaded the software from the website listed on the card, unzipped it, formatted the sd card, copied the files onto the sd card, put the sd card inside of the R4 the right way. When I power up my ds lite it freezes on the Nintendo DS screen before the part that last touch to continue. When I changed the settings to auto load the ds says there is no game in the slot. I know my memory card works because my computer detects it. I put the latest kernel and the moonshell on the card
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..

Testimonial: "I download the V1.64 wood kernel from www.r4ids.cn/ which is the website listed on my card and the hologram in the package, in the unziped file there are only 2 files, an RPG folder and a DAT.nds file. The moonshell is a seprate download which I added to the SD card the second time I loaded the software. Should there be more files? My SD card is 16GB and I'm only putting about 1GB of data on it. I used 7zip to unzip the files. Before posting this I deleted the files reformatted the SD card and reloaded it and it still did the same thing. I'll try downloading sd formatter and format the SD card with that and see if it helps. I did not put anything in a folder anytime I loaded the software. Should I redownload the zip file itself?"

SOURCE: nintendo r4 nor working
The cartridge isn't being detected by the DS, this has nothing to do with what is on the card, it's not connecting with the pins inside the DS. Possibly putting a thin piece of card on the front of the game card may push the adaptor close enough to contact the pins.

You have to put the R4 v1.18 kernel on the memory card for it to work.
R4 web site is http://r4ds.cn/
In the download section is the r4 manual follow that and you should be ok.

What it comes down to is the following;
1.) You need to install the system kernel ( http://r4ds.cn/download/r4.html ) on the Micro SD card
2.) Then you can download games to your computer and copy them to the games directory on the Micro SD card.
3.) When you start the NDS, you will see the NDS Kernel bootscreen with on the upper screen in green : R4 - Revolution for DS. In the lower screen you will see three icons. Choos the left, which looks like a yellow and purple pacman.
4.) Select the game you want.
If you check the game files on the Micro SD card, you will see .nds files and .sav files.
The .sav files are the game results files and contain your personal games settings also. This file will be automatically created if you start the game the first time. If you delete it, your game start all over again with the default settings.
Have fun !

To get an in depth answer seach you tube but in brief.
You will need to download the system files for your type of R4 or flash card you are using, make sure you get the exact model type as they are not interchangeable.
Drag and drop the files to your card you will see either 4 or 5 files. Then make a folder called Games on your micro SD card and load your games into that folder.
It quite involved but the tutorials on you tube go right into it.
