Re: ndsl n-card

For the M3Lite The save files on the Card take up very little space, i'd just leave them there, but they should be located in "\NDSSAVE" directory of the flash card (CF, SD, Mini SD, MicroSD).

First, insert the flash card in to your computer. You should double click "My Computer" and locate the drive with your flash card. Double click the drive and you should see a "NDSSAVE" directory (for Nintendo DS games, aka NDS) and possibly a "GAMESAVE" direcotry (for Gameboy Advance aka GBA) saves.

if you right click the directory you should see a pop-up menu, from that menu click "Copy". Then Right click on your desktop (or wherever you want the files) and another popup menu should appear (click paste).

If anything you should worry about the actual games taking up too much space. You can delete the games and the save files should just stay on the card (which, again, are small).

It may be a little different with the ncard though

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

Mine works fine!!
Download English 1.18 from the R4 website.
You should have 4 files on your card
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.

Have just updated my DSi and now my R4i card will not work. Any suggestions?

download the file and follow instructions, you will need a non update DSi or a DS Lite to upgrade your R4. Never update until the cart markers have found a fix because all update will try block 3rd party contents

R4 NDSL Nintendo DS

Go to the manufacturers web site and download the latest OS files to put them in your memory card root. That would fix the problemand you should have updated files.
In the case of the games, music and other files in the card before the deletion you must get them again and put one by one in the memory. By the way if that was a complete deletion any game saved file is lost.

Multi game card for ds lite

Thanks for giving the card name, that helps to investigate possible causes of your problem.

The common causes of these problems are full cards memory because the seller fill the memory with game roms to make the device sell more attractive, though to save games you need memory and completelly filling the memory capacity of these cards make them to have issues like the ones you told before.

The good thing is that you can connect the NDSL to your PC throught the suplied USB cable and SLOT-2 (GBA game slot) N-Card Flash Linker cartridge.
You can download the required software latest files from the manufacturers website. Once connected, turn on your DS, your PC will recognize it and you will be able to drag and drop files, then you can delete or copy some less used game roms or save files from the card to your PC leaving free space for the others to run.

If nothing of that works for you, then you would try to find a FAQ or support forum site where you can find more options to solve this issue.

Good Luck...

Nintendo ds games

you need to go into the system itself and delete files from the DS itself. The DS has the capability to save files. when the game starts up, go into systems and you should be able to find where the files are and start to delete some.
