Transfer the DS games


Download these things: DLDI patcher - http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=81 NDS Backup Tool Wifi 0.31f - http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=2719 Filezilla https://www.ohloh.net/projects/filezilla/download?filename=FileZilla_3.2.6_win32-setup.exe
--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 192.168.1.10 or 192.168.2.10 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.

My son got a NDSTT and played games on it for a week, now all it says is MENU? on the top screen of his DS - how do i fix it?


Hi,

What i would suggest is to take the micro sd card and delete the menu folder and the menutt.dat and anything else associated with the main menu settings. Drag and drop the games folder or games and saves to the desktop and then format the sd card in FAT32.

I appreciate this may seem a little extreme but i have had quite a lot of experience with NDS flash cartridges and the problem you describe usually happens when the menu.tt file becomes corrupt.

Once the sd card is formatted, re install all the nesessary software (you should have these 3 files on the sd card :
TTmenu folder
ttmenu.dat
ttmenu.sys
but, DO NOT put any games onto it until you have placed it into the nds and turned it on allowing the TTcard to build a menu for the games to be loaded from.

Hope this helps

Insalling m3 resl deal but cant find DS MENU .dat


apparently m3 dont do upgrades now but this might help http://www.m3-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=312
basically it converts the r4 ds menu.dat to work on m3 simply (may work for m3 real) so now all you have to do is go to r4 download site and download latest version. 1.18 from here http://www.r4dscart.com/r4-software.html (select the english update) then patch ur dat file replace it back to where you took it from before patching and then copy all 4 files ( _system_ moonshi _ds_menu.dat _ds_mshl.nds) into the root of micro sd card. advise you to copy any files/games you have on your mem card then copy the games over to your newly installed firmware. oh by the way in the link i provided on how2 patch the ds_menu.dat it might be bit vague on where you put the ds_menu.dat file to patch it, all you do is drag and drop it into the PATCH app thats inside the "r4 to m3 patcher" folder. post a reply to let me know how you got on

Couldn't dind ds-menu.dat using R4 card


hi

first of all , check your r4 version.
there are many.

have you put the right firmware on your r4?
original : http://r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html

r4 revolution pro : http://www.r4dspro.com/download_en.html
r4 ultra and de luxe : http://www.r4deluxe.com/en/down.asp
r4 III : http://www.r4dsl.net/download-en.asp

after that it should work.
or maybe you should format your memory card first.

Error openx menu dat error


Take all the memory contents out to your computer as backup, format your memory to fat32 and put all the memory contents again to the memory from your computer. If not working try downloading the card system files from the card manufacturer site, these files are needed to run the card just like the operative system in your PC, if these files get corrupt or deleted the card wont work.

Nintendo dslite ncard


I did have Error: Data is not align 16k! when i start up my ds.
What I did was..

All the files you need are at www.neoflash.com.
Your need (MK5) v1.45 which is in the download section.

Some of the nds roms do needed unraring before putting on memory card. They should be in .nds format etc.

The files you need are...

DSYSTEM (Entire Folder And Contents
MK5_2Mbit_test_v5.nds
MK5_PassMe.nds
xmenu.dat

When you have these files THEN you can format by...

Please insert both cards in to the DS and power up, tap the screen to continue as you would for any normal game.

You will then come to the menu "USB Mode" and "Menu Mode"
Instead of selecting one please press and hold the "select button" on the DS then tap "start"

Select "Quick Format"
Once complete restart the DS, you will have to tap the screen as above and this time select" USB MODE"

By formatting the menu file will have been deleted from internal Memory and will need replacing with the files. downloaded from neoflash.com
(MK5) v1.45

DSYSTEM (Entire Folder And Contents
MK5_2Mbit_test_v5.nds
MK5_PassMe.nds
xmenu.dat

(Drag and drop these files only)

Now your new system is ready, restart NDS and enjoy


Will fix almost all problems with DS Firecard and applies to both 8 and 16gbit.
