Hey there,

The "Menu?" screen is unfortuantely a sign that you have a fake R4 card, because the real one should have "Loading..." as an error message. The "Menu?" screen is a copy from the DSTT firmware and shouldn't be on an R4 card.

You can buy genuine cards from either DSCardWorld.com or NDS-Gear.com - although nds-gear is a bit cheaper shipping wise if you live outside the U.S.

Good luck!

My DS Lite don't start.On the top screen came an red icon with the message:menu?I have an R4 adapter with micro SD card.


Your problem is not related to your DSlite, but with your R4. Somehow you managed to delete the R4 firmware from the microSD card.

New R4 card wont work !!!!


First make sure you have the correct kernel for the card. Go to the website where you purchased it and download the current firmware. Next copy all of that onto the micro sd card. Build folders in you sd card, very simple right click...new folder... enter... then label them correctly .. Label one movies... music... games.. etc... then put your files into the correct folders.. Another common error is that people use to high of a sd card.... some r4 cards only accept up to a 2gb micro card If you use one that is too big it will stick on the loading screen ... If none of this works reload all the software onto the card and start from scratch... hope this helps

I have just bought a r4 SDHC for my sons ds and it just brings up the red menu? sign in the top screen


There are several different versions of software for the R4 cards. If your R4 card has 'R4i Upgrade' and 'V1.4' in a yellow star on the front or just 'R4 Upgrade' then download this software - http://de.r4i-sdhc.com/R4i%20English%20V1.14b.rar
If your R4 has 'R4i Upgrade' without the 'V1.4' yellow star then download this software - http://de.r4i-sdhc.com/R4i%20English%20V1.09b.rar
If you do not already have 'WinRar' installed then download and install it here - http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar391.exe
When you click the correct link above choose 'save' and save the file on your computer. When it has downloaded insert your R4's SD micro card into the USB adapter put it into your PC. Go to 'My Computer' and look for the SD card drive, probably called 'Removable Disk'. right click the drive and select 'Format'. Check the box to allow a quick format and wait for it to complete. After open the drive by double clicking it to display an empty window and then minimize it to the taskbar with the '-' command in the top right of the window. Next go to the location where you downloaded the software above, usually 'My Documents' or the 'Desktop' by default. Right click the file and select 'Extract Files...'. Click the SD drive you just formatted, i.e 'Removable Disk (E:)' to highlight it in blue and then click, 'OK'.
You may now copy your .nds game files to the SD card or insert it into your R4 cartridge and your DS.

Scandisk 2gb says menu when I switch on.


If you are using the sandisk 2 GB with an R4 card it is not possible. R4 cards and sandisk micro sd cards aren't compatible. Buy a Kingston 2GB micro sd card that should then work.I hope this helps you. If is does please rate me.

Insert the R4DS in the DS lite and it just says "loading" and thats it ?


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.)
