Hi,

Stuck at the “MENU” screen after loading DSi.
No firmware or wrong firmware was installed in the SD card. Please refer to the instruction to install R4i‐SDHC to the SD card. The instruction can be found at the R4i‐SDHC official web site
www.r4i-sdhc.com.


Make sure you have properly installed firmware.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

Thanks.

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

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:

Black Screen with : Loading... on it


Get the memory card out of your R4 adaptor, putt it into a card reader.
Connect the card reader to your pc and goto Start/run.

Run this command: chkdsk /x /f /r x:

Putt for "x:" the drive letter where your card reader is at.

If the file system is repaired download the newest R4 Kernel and unpack it to your memory card, use 7zip, this software is free
and handles zip and rar files + many other types.

R4 Kernel:
http://download.r4ds.cn/english/English-1.18.rar

7Zip:
http://www.7-zip.org/

Use safe removal to disconnect your card reader, so that the file system at the memory
card wont get damaged.

If this wont work, you'll have to format your memory card using fat32 and unpack afterwards
the kernel files to the memory card.

To format goto start/run and use this command: Format x:

"x:" Is again the drive letter where your card reader is at.

Succes.

How do i load the software onto my r4 revolution card? it sticks at the laoding screen so i need to load the software but do not know how to do it .


It's EXTREMELY easy. First, of all, check on the box to make 100% SURE that it's and R4 and not a copy/fake. The R4 software doesn't work on fakes, so you'll be stuck on the loading screen if it is a fake. To tell if it's a fake, look on the box. If it has the SDHC logo on it it is definitely not an R4, probably an R4SDHC. There will be a link somewhere on the box to the site where you can get the downloads, software, and such. If it's an original R4 (which I highly doubt...), go to this site: http://www.r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html and scroll to the bottom of the page to English Kernel v.1.18 and click Download1. Once it downloads, extract the files from the .zip file/iTunes file. To do this, right click the icon of what you just installed and select extract here. Once it extracts, put all of the files like moonshell and stuff into your r4 memory card. If moonshell and the other files came in a folder when you extracted it, go into the folder and copy the files, not the folder itself or it won't work.

Cannot find menu dat file


To format any drive just insert the memory, right click over your memory drive in My PC window, and there should be an option to Format this drive, formatting will erase all the card contents so make a backup in your computer first.

When you click on "format" a window will appear to chose FAT or FAT32 (try FAT32 first then if not working try FAT), dont have to do nothing on the size option, write a label for the drive if you want, not needed, let Quick Format clear, click on start button and you'll see a proccess bar, when it finish it tell you and you have a formatted drive.

Put the sistem files and one rom to test again in the memory, test it on your DS. Be sure you have the right files for your card, the www.R4ds.cn site only supports R4 cards, not R4 III, R4 SDHC or any fake non R4 hardware.
