This sounds like a problem with the MicroSD card in the R4. Some brands have been known to be incompatible. Without knowing more information about the R4 and the SD card
A couple of years ago, I had three microSD cards fail, even reformatting failed. I believe it was a problem with the R4's at the time. Try reformatting the microSD card in a PC, download the latest kernel and load that on to the microSD card, if you can get it to format.
Failing that, buy a new SD card. SanDisk/Transcend and Kingston are the preferred and recommended types. Is this an R4 or R4-SDHC? Don't use an SDHC(4gb+) memory card in a R4, only in R4-SDHC.
Memory cards are cheap enough 1gb-2gb don't cost that much, if you have an R4-SDHC then try a 4gb
I take it it was working at some point or other, or is this a new card?

Stuck on Loading Screen
This usually indicates that the software kernel on the micro sd memory card has become corrupted. It can also happen if the micro sd memory card is overloaded with games, music and video files etc. The solution is to reinstall the kernel software on the micro sd card and ensure the micro sd memory card is not overloaded. Leave about 25% memory free.
download SDformatter and format the sd card with that, place all the files on there, none in folders..
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.
