R4 card not working??

I have a DS Lite, an R4 card and a micro sdhc transflash card. I have uploaded the moonshell files onto the micro card and, when inserted, the ds screen just flashes the front screen and then goes to a red chip symbol with ? and Menu in. I dont have a clue what this means been trying to sort it out for the past 4 hours but cant get my head round it? I have been able to copy and paste games into a games file but this still hasnt worked, i have no disc with the r4 card maybe this is the problem?? Please help!!

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

R4i working SLOW on DSi. Loads slow and make save files slow.???


cause DSI is the nintendos attempt to stop R4 card users! see the r4 and GnM cards made nintendo invest in a microsd slot! so try using that card with the dsi instead of the R4 as people now are hacking the micro sd slot to allow any ds rom to be played! faster then th R4 due to the fact that the micro sd is connected right to the motherboard of a ds game slot devices such as R4

Nitendo DS lite how to play music using R4 revolution DS on my


First you need to make sure you have the current firmware for the R4 card loaded onto the micro-sd card. I know that some R4 cards only accept up to a 2gb memory card so check and make sure you are using the correct micro card with the R4. When you have downloaded the firmware for your card you need to make some folders. Label them games...movies... music... etc.. making a folder for each one. Put the Mp3 files in the correct folder. When you use your R4 you will see three icons at the startup screen go to the one labeled multi-media... Moonshell will run the movies/music... you are ready to go ... hope this helps

Ds lite will not play video files


Hi George,

Firstly may i suggest you put R4 firmware 1.18 on the micro sd card as it is much more stable (link: http://www.r4dscart.com/r4-software.html).

The moonshell you are using should be correct however, i am comfused by the .dpgm1v extension as i have only ever used files with the .dpg extension.

Have you tried downloading a .dpg movie and trying that in moonshell? Just a suggestion.

Please let me know how you get on. Will be happy to assist further if needed.

Good luck,

Karlos

Ds shuts down whenr4 inserted


You should check if the R4 card is actually R4 SDHC, because the firmware of R4DS is not compatible with it. If it is SDHC, go to this website http://rs320.rapidshare.com/files/140174805/English-1.21.zip to download the firmware for your card. If there are any roms on it, you should save them somewhere else, for you have to format the card first (do this in windows by going to 'this computer', then right-clicking on the SD card from your R4 and then select 'format'. Warning! Never select 'quick format'! This could do damage). Now your card is completely empty. Copy the files you just downloaded and unzipped to the card (5 files; _system_, moonshl, _DS_MENU.DAT, _DS_MENU.INI and _DS_MSHL.NDS). Now put the SD card in the R4 and it should work properly :) I had the same problem, and I have just solved it *grin*. I hope this was useful.

R4 card


1- If you are using the same card in both cards and only work in the R4 deluxe then your R4 SDHC need different system files to work.

2- If you are using different cards with different system files for each one then the files would be corrupted, download them again from R4 site; or your SD memory need to be formatted to fat32 for your SDHC R4.
