MicroSD Card not being read, SanDisk 2GB MicroSD Card
I have recently bought a SanDisk 2GB MicroSD Card in order to play on my R4DS. I read all about how to setup the R4 and the SD card in order for it to work on my R4, but as I stick in my MicroSD Card into the SD USB reader (I have two of them, one direct USB and one through a MicroSD adapter), it does not seem to detect on my computer. It recognizes a USB device has been plugged in but it does not recognize it as a removable disk.

Here is what I tried. My USB writer wasn't working but I happen to have a SD card reader on my printer so I used the SD adapter (in the R4 box) and printer to try a different route and it worked. good luck

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. 8. 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!
If your MicroSD Card can be read directly by your PC or other device, you don't need it. However, save it, just in case. The adaptor can convert your MicroSD card to an SD card, allowing it to be read by most card readers. Store the adapter in a safe place until it is needed.
Are you using a card reader? If yes, you need to isolate the problem. Please follow the steps below:
1. Try connecting your memory card reader into different USB port of the computer. 2. Try using different card reader to see if there's a problem with the card or with the reader. 3. Connect it into different computer. 4. Remove and reinsert the MicroSD in the card reader and make sure that the card is properly seated. 5. If the card reader and the computer are working but still unable to detect the MicroSD, try to reformat the card. 6. If same problem persist, return it to the store and have it replaced.
Re-format it. Put the SanDisk 2GB microSD memory card into your LG enV2 and format it from there. If that does not work plug it into your laptop then right click the icon and format it to FAT and click on default settings.
