Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

2 Answers

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.

I noticed that if you change time of ds..i.e.....put it back a year and that should sort your problem

SOURCE: DS R4 card keeps freezing-- help!?

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 revolution ds


If you have a DSi with an R4 Upgrade V1.4 Revolution for DS then it is enough. If there is some problem while playing it or an any kind of error message then you should check it out again. But R4 3DS is a very good and famous game.

When you copied the R4 software to the SD card you either missed something or put something in the wrong place. This is the most likely cause of nothing happening when you turn on your DS. It's also possible that you are using an oder version of the software. Follow the link provided.
