Hello you need to put the correct software onto the card first otherwise there's nothing for the r4 to load. There's a great tutorial on http://www.dscardworld.com with pictures and links to all the official software.

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!

I have purchased an R4 card and micro sd card for my DS. I have been told that I need to download the software for it, does anybody know what software I need to download before i can transfer my games onto...


google R4 revolution or R4 card. You will see a host of websites. Each one will have a download for the card... Your best bet for finding the correct kernel is to go to the website that you purchased the card from and there should be a link to download the firmware( kernel ) for the card. Once you get the firmware you will need to transfer that onto your micro sd card using the TF adapter that should have come with the R4 card. Make sure you transfer everything over to the micro .... After you get the info onto the card make folders for your media. Label them correctly so you can find them on your ds. Label one music one movies one games. After that is done insert your micro sd card into the R4 and plug it into your ds... have fun ..these cards really open the ds up to a ton of neat and fun programs

When i turned on my ds, it says "couldn't find ds_MENUdat


It sounds like you need to figure out exactly what kind of DS card you have. Check out NintendoDSCard.com's DS Card Setup Guide which should sort you out.

Also, I recommend only buying genuine cards since a lot of the fakes tend to break quite easily. Maybe from dscardworld.com or from nds-gear.com if you're in Canada/Europe since their international shipping's a bit cheaper

Good luck!

Onknown format


The SD card format only goes to 2Gb, anything after this, is an SDHC.  You are obviously trying to use this with an R4 card or similar... These will only accept micro SD, and not micro SDHC
