Hello Lynniehenry,

You need to download software for you Downloaded game to boot from.

here is a link

http://www.r4dscart.com/r4-software.html

click download firmware 1.18
put it on your memory card for your r4 card then you should be flying.

Another tip before I go if you go to www.nitroroms.com you can get the games quicker and all the new ones.

Hope this has helped you out. If so then please leave a thumbs up.

Cheers Little Dish Fitter.

Hello

A menu 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. 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

My ds freezes when loading the R4, or it says that there is no game in the ds slot


Stuck on Loading Screen This usually indicates that the software kernel on the micro sd memory card has become corrupted. It can also happen if the micro sd memory card is overloaded with games, music and video files etc. The solution is to reinstall the kernel software on the micro sd card and ensure the micro sd memory card is not overloaded. Leave about 25% memory free.
download SDformatter and format the sd card with that, place all the files on there, none in folders..
  • Download the correct software kernel from the manufacturers website
  • Unzip the files using a suitable programme such as Win Zip or 7 Zip.
  • Open the folder containing the unzipped files and copy the 4 files (Moonmemo, Moonshl2, R4iMenu and R4.dat) to the root of the memory card.
  • At this point put the memory card into your R4 card. Start your console and ensure the R4 card is operating correctly.
  • You may have to run an upgrade file at this point

Had to format memory card what do i need to run r4 and memorycard


You will need to download and reinstall the R4 firmware.
After downloading and decompressing the new updated files, there will be one shell folder and two files _DS_MENU.DAT, and _DS_MSHL.NDS.Copy these files to the root directory of TF card to replace the former files (ex. F:\ or E:\).

You can download the update files and firmware here:

R4 plays games in my sisters ds but card wont play games in mine?


This may be fo a number of reasons. First of all this may be because the connections are not clean. So wipe the connections on the R4 card if neccesary. If this doesn't work unscrew your R4 card and place a small piece of paper underneath the chicp. This will raise the connection ribbons and make better contact with the ds. Next you should make sure your card is not corupted. Install the latest firmware. Hope this helps.

Unable to read sd card


Hi grecko, Hope this helps, I've just bought a 4gb memory card for my daughter's ds so she can fit 58-60 games instead of 28 on a 2gb memory card and have downloaded and put a file onto the memory card before loading games onto it.

Supercard DS one have a site where you can download the files you need and it gives help. Guess it's the same if using an R4 supercard too but I bought an R4 card for partner preloaded with software.

Nintendo DS Lite game query


what your son is talking about is an r4 card that looks like a ds game the only difference is the r4 takes a small memory card in which u can put the ds games on to the best place to get one is amazon its best to buy one with the memory card that works out cheaper .the only downfall is that the games do not come with the memory card you have to put them on yourself .there are a few sites out there that will let you download the games for it and then you have to drag and drop the games onto the memory card.sounds hard but its easy to do.

Games will not list in DS even though downloaded onto SD Card.


Try plugging the memory card into your computer and checking that the files still exist. It is possible to delete files from the memory card whilst it is plugged into your DS.
