Look on your r4 card for the site, it should be on the bottom of the card, go to the site, when you go to the site look for the card you have, when you have found it download the new firmware to your pc or laptop, it will be in a rare file, open it and put it on your desktop, when you have done that open the file and drop and drag the files one by one onto your card, it will be three or four file to go onto your card, once you have done that put your games on it, if you have not allready done that, if everything is ok, put the games and the firmware files into a file, and put them onto you desktop, then if you have a problem you have a backup.

HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH60N isn't working properly, any ideas as how i can fix it?

Run a thorough virus scan.

Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install.

Finally they fail and need to be replaced.

Error says "NDS file version

You should format you MicroSD card completely (copy all your ROMS and Saves from it first), then drop all the files from the website back on it, replace your ROMS and games, should be good to go.
Just make sure you've got the right software for the right card.

Should allow you to get the games. However, you will need to purchase additional hardware to play on your DS. However, these games can be played on your computer using a NDS emulator such as no$gba.
P.S. Its illegal to download commercial roms unless you have already purchased it.

Cant play nintendo games

OK. First of all to play NDS roms on the computer is almost not possible. The emulator for NDS are not very good and have really bad framerates so i would abandon the idea of playing them on your pc. If you still want to try then go to download the emulator ou want. Check that your roms are all unzipped before you try to run them and have the right file ending. snes=.srm or smc nds=.nds nes= .nes hope this helps.

I have deleted all the data off my ttds card and now dont know how to get it working again hlp!!!!

You need to go to the web site and download the update kernel (v1.17) unzip it and put them on to the root menu of your sd card. this will get the Ds to recognise the card, but you will also need to get the roms to, so you have some games to play. Just google NDS ROMS, cause I don't think I'm aloud to tell you where to get them from. Good Luck.

Nds roms not working

Usually when there are problems with booting roms on the r4 it is because the kernel is out of date. Download the latest kernel for your r4 at
If the games still don't work, you might need to replace the arm7.bin file in the game. To do this, you will need to use a program called DSLazy. You can download it here. So to replace the arm7.bin, you will need a nds rom that works without the arm7.bin fix.
Step One: Start DSLazy.
Step Two: Browse for the file that works without the fix (I use Tetris DS)
Step Three: Click Unpack. This will create a new folder called NDS_UNPACK
Step Four: Move the arm7.bin inside the new folder somewhere safe. Close DSLazy
Step Five: Complete steps 1-3 again.
Step Six: Now open NDS_UNPACK that you just created with the game you want to fix and put the arm7.bin that you moved from step four into the NDS_UNPACK to replace the one already in there with the new one.
Step Seven: Click NDS Packer in DSLazy. This will create a new version of the game you want to fix with a new arm7.bin
Step Eight: You are done. Copy the game to your r4 and load it. The game should work.

If this didn't work, which shouldn't happen, try re-downloading your roms.
If it STILL doesn't work, there might be a problem with your r4, and you might want to get it fixed or get a new one.

~hope this helps.
