Hi,

Stuck at the “MENU” screen after loading DS.
No firmware or wrong firmware was installed in the SD card. Please refer to the instruction to install R4i‐SDHC to the SD card.

The instruction can be found at the R4i‐SDHC official web site
www.r4i-sdhc.com.

Make sure you have properly installed firmware.

    Ok. here are the steps

    STEP 1: YOu have to download the Rom file frm the R4i website, corresponding to game you want to play

    STEP 2: Copy to the Memory card from system

    STEP 3: You insert the card to the device and start playing..



    But you have to get the r4i corresponding to particular game only from that website, think the website may be temp down, Please try after sometime



    Please leave comment, if you still need futhur assistance

It didn't load the R4 shell at all? It should have loaded you into something with a games button, music button, and settings I think... button..

Did it launch the cartridge? What exactly does it say on the screen? Are you sure this one is authentic? There are many many copies / fakes out there.

Please let me know, I am sure I can help you get it working here =)

    Hrm, did you load the r4ds software on the actual microsd card first? It sounds like it may be missing the R4 software..

    This is the latest one, I think it has a readme as well, but pretty much you just dump all the files onto the root of your microsd card..

    Let me know if you have done this:

    Thanks

    Well I gave you the link to the file, you download it, open it, and extract it all onto your microsd card for the R4....

    Inside the file I gave you a link to it should have a document that actually has full step by step, but really its just as easy as open the file, and drag files inside onto a microsd

New R4 card wont work !!!!


First make sure you have the correct kernel for the card. Go to the website where you purchased it and download the current firmware. Next copy all of that onto the micro sd card. Build folders in you sd card, very simple right click...new folder... enter... then label them correctly .. Label one movies... music... games.. etc... then put your files into the correct folders.. Another common error is that people use to high of a sd card.... some r4 cards only accept up to a 2gb micro card If you use one that is too big it will stick on the loading screen ... If none of this works reload all the software onto the card and start from scratch... 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.

You have to put the R4 v1.18 kernel on the memory card for it to work.
R4 web site is http://r4ds.cn/
In the download section is the r4 manual follow that and you should be ok.
