When the R4 card loaded up it deleted a lot of my

I was in the middle of a game and it froze. So, I turned it off and turned it back on like I usually do. When the R4 card loaded up it deleted a lot of my games randomly... i opened up the folder on my computer and they are there... but with weird symbols for names. Is there any way I can get the save files back?

Honestly, first i would copy al of your ROMs to your computer, and if you want to keep you saved game, copy the .sav files also. Then after that, make sure you have the newest kernel on your computer. Then delete everything on your R4 card. correctly install your kernel on the card again (and if you dont know or remember how to do this, i have written a guide for it) and copy your roms (and .sav files!) back on to your R4 card. PS: it would be better to only copy the kernel at first, load the R4 card in you ds, then after that, load the roms and/or the .sav files.

Hi denise, amh, could you please specify what r4 model you got? because there are lot of R4 out there, but the original R4 team had stopped producing R4's, all we have mostly today are clones. now some R4 only recognize up to 2GB of sd/micro sd cards, try using 2GB then see if that works..

How do i get deleted games back on ds r4 card cause little sister deleted some of the best games like mario kart ds and cooking mama and also super mario!!! im so angry !!! plz plz plz plz help me plz...


Cards like R4 allow you to store multiple games on one card. So when you start your DS, you choose which game you want to play and do not have to take all your games with you. The R4 relies on a microSD card to keep track of the games and save files. Your actual game, you should be able to recover from the original game cartridge (since you do actually own the game).

To recover your game progress (save file), you can put the microSD card in your PC (using the appropriate adapter) and just have a recovery program look for the files on the microSD card. There are several good FREE file recovery softwares on the internet. They will likely be your only shot a recovering your game progress but that depends on how much you've used your R4. If you have used it a lot, your save game may have been overwrite which means it is lost for good.

Whatever you do, do not do anything illegal.

R4 in NDSL freezing


The only thing i can suggest is to go to the site that is on your card and download the new firmware for your card, it maybe that you just need to update your card, if that dont work you may need to buy a new card, i would not leave your card in the nds if you are not using it for a while, take it out, dont leave it in the nds, it maybe that the contacts are worn.

When trying to load a certain game from my r4 card,it say's insufficiant memory, how do i delete whats on the memory to make way for new data.


you need to put the memory card in the adaptor and put it in your computer, then delete games you dont play/dont like. You have too many games. This happened to me. Usually deleting 1 game will do it sometimes 2 depending on the size.

Re format the SD card with FAT 32 reload the R4 files, create a folder called "games" in the root of the card place your games in there job done!!

Freeze on loading screen


Hello Minnie,

The last official firmware for the original R4 was v1.18, the R4 SDHC needed different firmware as it's from a different manufacturer. You need the 1.34 software available from this download page if you have the real black box one: R4 Firmware

That should fix your problems.
