When I put in R4, screen just says loading?


I spent hours on this one and finally worked it out. I have four kids and the ordeal started when I ordered two R4 cards and they turned out to be different, so I found out lots.

Odds are, you have bought a clone R4 card, not the genuine thing. If it is genuine, you can download the latest software from www.r4ds.cn. If that doesn't work, you more than likely have a clone.

The genuine R4 card uses encrypted software, so you will never get it to work with the genunine download. Just a well all the clone manufacturers have clone sites with clone software, the trick is to know which one you have and what can work. Here is what I discovered.

Turn the R$ card over and look at green printed circuit board just above the electronic contacts. You may see some white printing.
One of my cards says "R4-SDHC". This means that the R4 card can take a high capacity SD card. There are any number of versions of the software available, try www.r4sdhc.com. At the time this was written, version 1.32 worked just fine for my card.

The other card says "ROHS CARD-7A". This is not a high capacity card and no software will work with an SD card with higher than 2GB memory. So if you are trying with a 4GB card, like I was, it won't work. For this one, I switched to a 2GB Micro SD card and downloaded "r4team v 1.19" from www.linfoxdomain.com and it worked fine.

If the above software downloads don't work, there are a stack available on www.linfoxdomain.com under the Nintendo DS tab, so go with trial and error, and you should eventually get there. Note that It took a few goes with the first card before I found v 1.32 and got there.

So good luck, I feel like I know so much more now.

How do i get deleted games back on ds r4 card cause little sister deleted some of the best games like mario kart ds and cooking mama and also super mario!!! im so angry !!! plz plz plz plz help me plz...


Cards like R4 allow you to store multiple games on one card. So when you start your DS, you choose which game you want to play and do not have to take all your games with you. The R4 relies on a microSD card to keep track of the games and save files. Your actual game, you should be able to recover from the original game cartridge (since you do actually own the game).

To recover your game progress (save file), you can put the microSD card in your PC (using the appropriate adapter) and just have a recovery program look for the files on the microSD card. There are several good FREE file recovery softwares on the internet. They will likely be your only shot a recovering your game progress but that depends on how much you've used your R4. If you have used it a lot, your save game may have been overwrite which means it is lost for good.

Whatever you do, do not do anything illegal.

Ive copied the files across and copied games across but when running the R4 in the DS it sticks on loading screen.


There might be a couple of things wrong. It might be that you have a knock off R4 card. If the card is genuine then you may want to go to the R4 website and download the latest firmware for it. Copy the files to the TF card. Make sure you make folders for you content. Label one movies... games... music... etc.. The other problem that you might have is the SD micro card may not be compatible with the R4. I know with my card it is compatible only up to 2gb.. so if you have a card that is more than that it will stick on the loading screen when you power up your DS... hope this helps

R4 in NDSL freezing


The only thing i can suggest is to go to the site that is on your card and download the new firmware for your card, it maybe that you just need to update your card, if that dont work you may need to buy a new card, i would not leave your card in the nds if you are not using it for a while, take it out, dont leave it in the nds, it maybe that the contacts are worn.

Games will not list in DS even though downloaded onto SD Card.


Try plugging the memory card into your computer and checking that the files still exist. It is possible to delete files from the memory card whilst it is plugged into your DS.
