Hey Andrew,

A loading screen freeze usually means that there's the wrong version of the software installed. You have to make sure it was made for your specific model of R4, and there are a few out there. You need to put the correct software onto the card otherwise there's nothing for the r4 to load.

There's a great tutorial to set it up on http://www.dscardworld.com with pictures and links to all the official software on their support page. And I noticed they made a video about it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QV4sNQf2uS4

If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card there too. http://www.dscardworld.com I managed to find this site after I got burned at a few others. I got my iEdge from there. Loved having my emails responded to because I had loads of questions, and they were quick to ship it. They test each card before sending them. US based support and shipping I believe.

I just bought an R4i neo card and I've loaded it with games as it should be done, but when I try to start a game the loading screen comes up and then it turns white and freezes


A loading screen freeze usually means that there's the wrong version of the software installed. You have to make sure it was made for your specific model of R4, and there are a few out there.

The R4i Neo is a fairly unique clone, but unfortunately it's not a good one. Once you track down the correct software try it again. If it still doesn't work, then you might be better off investing in a better card like the iEdge .

My son's hyper-R4i card is not loading. White Screen.


I have the exact same problem except it was me who dumbly clicked on the update firmware file. I'm thinking the problem has something to do with the firmware on the actual card.

My Hyper-R4i freezes on "Loading" on my DSL


Hello,

The Hyper R4i is a fairly unreliable clone, it might have reached the end of its life unfortunately.

I went with the iEdge it's rock solid and has never given me problems in 6 months since I got it. If you're looking to get genuine cards for your ds (there are fakes out there), take a look here, http://www.dscardworld.com.

Hi i have formatted the r4i sd card and then load the program files but when i test it in the dsi i get a black touch screen and on the top screen it comes up with a re sd card outline with 'menu?' in it -...


When this error occurs it means that 99% of the time you have either, downloaded the wrong software(System files) or you have installed them incorrectly. When you are looking for the system files you must use the one supplied by your particular variant of DS card. (There are many R4i cards out there and they all have their own software and none will work in the other :S) On the DS card itself look for a web address - go there and look for the latest kernel version. Make sure you unzip it to your micro sdcard, and that all the files are in the root of the card (and not in a sub folder)
If you want more detailed instructions with images check out this r4 help site: R4i Help

That is a forum post that shows you exactly what you need to do to setup your R4i card

But they might not have your exact card model's software. If you check the packaging of your flash card there should be a manufacturer's website on it that will have the latest official software for your particular flash card. Or you can check the list of R4 card types here for their manufacturer's websites http://www.r4dsrevolution.co.uk
