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.

Is this a problem with the card itself?

I don't think there is a problem with the card itself. The slot might be dusty. Try and blow into the slot and then blow the card itself.

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

Or the Card is SDHC... and your adapter is not... I would suggest replacing the adapter or the card, either of them could be faiiling.

How to add a games


hi,

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!

My m3 ds real froze


Ditch M3DS, eventually it will rupture your F2 fuze in the DS. Buy an R4DS and reprogram the MicroSD card.

Nothing sees my R4DS card!


Yes,

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 http://www.r4ds.cn/download/r4ds.html

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.

My DS says loading on the top screen! Help


I had this problem for awhile. Go to the R4DS home page (google it) and download the most recent firmware. If you have a R4DS clone, then you will need to find the home page of that device and download the firmware there. If the files are zipped, extract thim with the default Windows zipped files manager or 7-zip. Copy all the files inside to the root of your 2gb card. This should fix the problem.

No R4DS


It is possible, can be the following:
The card slots from recent nintendo's have been adjusted to avoid the use of r4ds. If your nintendo is newer you can try to put a small pice of carton behind the r4ds card in order to push it well against the contacts.
