Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

R4 in NDSL freezing

I have an R4 - Revolution for DS? - it's one of those things you can put like lots of games on it and then put it in your Nintendo DS/Lite. I ahve a NDSL. The R4 and DS worked fine last year and the year before when I first got it. I haven't used it for a while, maybe 6 months. Now, when I put the R4 in and I turn on the DS it first claims there's no 'Game Pak' inserted. I take out the R4 I blow it, I blow into the slot, and I re-insert the R4. After 1-5 tries, it works, but then it freezes on the black loading screen that comes before the game menu screen. Yesterday, it froze on the black loading screen 12 times or so before it worked. Today, I've tried and tried it just keeps on freezing.

Why did this happen?

What can I do to possibly prevent this from happening?

Most importantly, is there a solution?

Thanks so much if you can answer my questions (:

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.

SOURCE: I have a r4 card

The R4 was Made in 2004 and the production stopped in 2008. And DSi has Firmware that the R4 Will NOT Work with the R4. I advise you to use an R4i or something else.

When you copied the R4 software to the SD card you either missed something or put something in the wrong place. This is the most likely cause of nothing happening when you turn on your DS. It's also possible that you are using an oder version of the software. Follow the link provided.

Which kernal should I load for R4 Upgrade Revolution for DS (NDSl/NDS)? There is an web address www.R4I-SDHC.com but when I log on this it is still not clear which to load. Also what are the steps I need...


Hi,

Click here, scroll to the bottom of the page and download the "English Kernel v1.8" (I'm assuming you want English).

1) Firstly connect your micro SD card and then extract all the files from the zip file and copy them all to the card.

2) Next put your .nds files, mp3 etc onto the SD card (anywhere in the root of the card is fine).

3) Put your SD card into the R4, pop it into the DS/DSL and that should be it.

Hope this helps, any problems feel free to message me.

Regards,
SOD69

I bought a ra(ndsl/nds ) for my ds lite and


Mine works fine!!
Download English 1.18 from the R4 website.
Unzip
You should have 4 files on your card
_system_
moonshell
_DS_MENU_DAT
_DS_MSH_NDS
you then add the .nds game files from wherever you get them from
Make sure the card is formatted first, ie there are no other files on it. try FAT. rather than FAT 32. I can't remember which but I've had no problems with either the card or the software, best thing since sliced bread, and it only cost me a tenner.

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
