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.

R4 ..Im Clueless!


you need to go to youtube and look up the r4 files required to run r4, you need to choose what system you will use when using the card as you dont simply just drag games in to the card directory you actually need the operating files as well for the card or it will not recognise it. hope this helps, tim

R4 Problem loading error


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

No cd with r4, just says loading so need to know what software to download


So start again, delete everything from the R4.
Go to http://www.r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html
click the "R4 V1.18 kernel (English/French/Korean)" and download it.
Extract the download to a folder. then drag its contents to the Micro SD card, check it in your ds it should work, if not, let me know the model of your R4 it could be different

Freezed on loading screen !!!!!!!!!


Hi, the original R4 revolution will only worked up to kernel 1.16 or 1.17 or 1.18 (cant remember its one of them). Anything that is higher than that are for the R4 SDHC and others (different type). R4 Cards can be pretty confusing as there are many types (original v2, v3, SDHC, supercard...etc) and they all have their own website. Cant remember the link to the original one but you can get the software at http://nds-gear.com/software-r4v2.zip

Hopefully this one should work for you
