The best thing would probably be to completely reformat your sd card (not just delete the files) and put back on the correct latest firmware and games.

If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card there too. 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.

Best of luck!

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:

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 DSCardWorld.com or NDS-Gear.com (NDS-Gear is probably better if you live in Europe or Canada as their shipping's slightly better internationally).

Good luck!

Need to know how to get games to work with my r4 ds revoultion card.downlosded software but cant get games to work .do i have to extract them?


First get the R4 OS installed onto the card (into the root dir), then make a sub directory called NDS. Put your .NDS files into that directory. you should now have a couple of sub dirs, NDS, Moonshl2, and r4iMenu or something similar. and some r4 OS files in the root directory.

R4 should boot, then pick the left icon (games) and load a game from the resulting list.

Yes you must extract the files. It won't play from a zip file. all files must end in .NDS for them to work. There are a lot of cool homebrew out there for these cards, have fun.

Get this file extract the file with winrar, and copy the files to the DS card. The file structure should have is: 
Files
  • _DS_MENU.DAT
  • _DS_MSHL.NDS
Folders
  • _system_

You should now put your .nds files onto the root of the card also, and hopefully all should work OK for you

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.

R4 card


Did you buy the card from a reputable retailer? If you did then I'd be getting to the point of sending it back if I'd copied all of the files from the download onto the memory card and it didn't work. I've only seen fake cards do this before.
