Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

DS R4 card keeps freezing-- help!?

I own a DS Lite and an R4 card (have had the R4 for over a year now and it was working perfectly prior)-- the R4 card is a "R4 Upgrade Revolution for DS" (the site provided on the R4 card is www.R4i-SDHC.com), and the microSD card is a Sandisk one. Recently, my R4 has been acting strangely. When I insert the card and then turn it on, I get past the loading screen, but when on the game selection screen, the screen freezes. I am not sure what is wrong. But the DS itself is functioning normally, as I can play other game cartridges on it.

Can someone please tell me what's wrong and how I should go about fixing it? Please be detailed because this is my first R4 and I am not very good with tech!

Cheers,
X.

Hell Xin,

It seems like you got the R4 SDHC, but not the original one I'm afraid. The original one is from www.r4sdhc.com, and it is a better supported product.

You could try reformatting your micro sd card and see if that's unstable, but if not I'd recommend getting a new R4. If you do suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card there too. http://www.dscardworld.com I managed to find this site after I got burned at a few others.

Loved having my emails responded to because I had loads of questions, and they were quick to ship it. They test each card before sending them. US based support and shipping I believe.

Best of luck!

Yes, it sounds like you'll need to get a new card. I've been using the Acekard 2i for over a year with zero problems.

If you're looking to get genuine cards for your ds (there are fakes out there), take a look here, http://www.dscardworld.com. I managed to find this site after I got burned at a few others.

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.

Hello there,

Unfortunately, this is a common problem to do with the actual contacts on the back of your R4 card. A small minority of Nintendo DS Lite units have the contacts points set SLIGHTLY further back, meaning the contact is bad.

Try experimenting by putting a folded piece of paper in-between the R4 card and the red Nintendo DS Lite when you play it, and notice that it should play now. You can permanently wedge a small piece of paper inside the R4 card itself by carefully taking off the cover, putting the paper in, and putting the cover back. This ought to solve your problem.

If you are looking for a reliable place to buy DS and DSi cards from that will stock originals, I'd recommend using http://www.NDS-Gear.com (I've used them myself). They test every card before sending which means you won't receive dud cards, and more importantly they have support before AND after your purchase by people who reply very quickly and in perfect English. Some of these dodgy websites take 4-6 weeks to deliver and never answer e-mails, so I'm glad these guys are different. Oh, and they guarantee to dispatch by the next working day, which always helps with speed and all. And they're recommended by a lot of the DS card help sites, too.

Best of luck!
