Re: R4DS

You need different R4DS software for the NDS and NDS Lite.
They are not compatible.

If you've already downloaded Free Nintendo DS Lite Game Roms but still do not have any idea how to install and play with it, then do not fret. There is a simple procedure in doing it.
After this complete step by step tutorial, your NDS Rom games will be automatically copied into your R4DS and you'll be able to play like a pro. I assume that you use Windows XP or higher and you have sufficient computer skills to follow me through.
1. Unzip the zip file you've downloaded using your favorite unzip application. Keep it in a safe place for future use.
2. Remove your microSD card from the R4DS cartridge.
3. Insert your microSD card to the microSD USB adaptor that you got when you bought your R4DS.
4. Insert the microSD USB adaptor (where your microSD card is inserted) to your PC's USB port. Windows will automatically detect it.
5. Go to My Computer. You'll see a new drive in it. That's your microSD card. Double click it.
6. Copy the .NDS file that you unzipped on step 1 and paste it on the drive that you opened on step 5. Never paste it to any directory. Just paste it on the root directory. You only need to copy the .NDS files, no more, no less, just ignore the other files that goes with the zip file.
7. Safely remove your USB drive when done copying all the NDS files. I guess, you know how to do this. If not, ask anyone around you. icon_smile.gif8. Remove the microSD card from the microSD USB adaptor.
9. Insert the microSD card to your R4DS cartridge.
10. Insert your R4DS cartridge to your Nintendo DS Lite.
11. Turn on your Nintendo DS Lite. If you followed all the directions above correctly, you'll be able to see the copied games on the list of games on your R4DS now. Enjoy!
Of course, please note that copying game ROMs to your R4DS is illegal, unless you have the original copy of the game and you're just copying the backup file. R4DS is definitely NOT illegal, it's how you handle and deal with it that could make it illegal. So just make sure that you're copying a back-up of your games. Enjoy!

R4 for nintendo ds lite does not work

Make sure that you have the latest firmware installed in your R4 micro SD card. You can get the latest firmware here:

After downloading, extract the .rar file. Copy "_DS_MENU.DAT" and "_DS_MSHL.NDS" to the root directory of your micro SD (ex: E:\ or F:\),
To play games, simply copy the games you have downlaoded to the root directory also.

Nothing sees my R4DS card!


First you need to make sure you format your Micro-SD card in Windows to FAT32 format. Then load the latest software files onto your micro-sd card. You can get these from

Then in the root directory of the MicroSD card, make a folder called "Games" (without the ""s) and place your .nds backup files/ROMs in the Games folder.

Transfer the DS games

Download these things: DLDI patcher - NDS Backup Tool Wifi 0.31f - Filezilla
--First time only--
Install Filezilla. Now unzip the DLDI patcher's ZIP into a new folder. Unzip the NDS Backup Tool ZIP into another folder. Open up the NDS_Backup_Tool_Wifi.ini file and change the IP address of the DS if necessary (if unsure, leave as is and change it to or if it doesn't work) Open up the DLDI patcher, drag and drop the NDS_Backup_Tool_Wifi.nds file onto the patcher and then select R4DS (Revolution for DS) from the drop-down menu. Then, copy over the NDS_Backup_Tool_Wifi.nds file and the NDS_Backup_Tool_Wifi.ini file to your R4's memory card (location doesn't matter).
--After doing the above--
Run the tool and follow its instructions. When you have followed its instructions and you need to get the game sent to your PC, open up Filezilla then type in the following: Server: 192.168.*.10 (whatever you chose) Port: 21 (default) Username: anonymous Connect, then look for your NDS file and save it to wherever you want. Wait for the transfer to complete, then close Filezilla and restart your DS with your R4 inside. Repeat for each game.

R4 Problem loading error

Get this file extract the file with winrar, and copy the files to the DS card. The file structure should have is:
  • _system_
  • moonshl
You should now put your .nds files onto the root of the card also, and hopefully all should work OK for you

R4Ds not working on NDS I

oh sorry didnt read your post right the first time, you have a new dsi? nintendo have been clever in not only makin the dsi region bound unlike the normal ds lite, meaning it will not play games from other regions where as the ds lite can but it does also made sure that the new dsi does not support any super card, be it the r4, dstt, n5. they are gits. the r4 ,dstt teams etc have promised to do cards that the dsi supports but dunno wen avalible yet and im guessin will cost more, sorry to let you in on this gimmick that nintendo have caused.hope this helps.

Nds lite doesnt power off

Dear Cornjo,

Your situation has baffled me completly. Here are some solutions that might help you:
  • How old is your DS/DS Lite? If it is less than 1 year old or if you have a gurantee for more than 1 year, you can take it back to the shop.
  • Try taking out the battery and not putting it back for at least 24 hours
  • Charge your DS COMPLETLY and do not use it for a while
