Hello MPHP2,

A loading screen freeze usually means that there's the wrong version of the software installed. You have to make sure it was made for your specific model of R4, and there are a few out there. You need to put the correct software onto the card otherwise there's nothing for the r4 to load.

There's a great tutorial to set it up on http://www.dscardworld.com with pictures and links to all the official software on their support page. And I noticed they made a video about it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QV4sNQf2uS4

If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card like the R4 SDHC 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.

SOURCE: R4 card

Could be the R4 is not coming into contact with the connections inside the DS.Try putting the r4 in the Ds then using a piece of paper folded a couple of times down inside the slot between the ds and the r4 to push the connection pins together a bit better.

SOURCE: New R4 card never loads

You should check if the R4 card is actually R4 SDHC, because the firmware of R4DS is not compatible with it. If it is SDHC, go to this website http://rs320.rapidshare.com/files/140174805/English-1.21.zip to download the firmware for your card. If there are any roms on it, you should save them somewhere else, for you have to format the card first (do this in windows by going to 'this computer', then right-clicking on the SD card from your R4 and then select 'format'. Warning! Never select 'quick format'! This could do damage). Now your card is completely empty. Copy the files you just downloaded and unzipped to the card (5 files; _system_, moonshl, _DS_MENU.DAT, _DS_MENU.INI and _DS_MSHL.NDS). Now put the SD card in the R4 and it should work properly :) I had the same problem, and I have just solved it *grin*. I hope this was useful.

SOURCE: freezed on loading screen !!!!!!!!!

Hi, the original R4 revolution will only worked up to kernel 1.16 or 1.17 or 1.18 (cant remember its one of them). Anything that is higher than that are for the R4 SDHC and others (different type). R4 Cards can be pretty confusing as there are many types (original v2, v3, SDHC, supercard...etc) and they all have their own website. Cant remember the link to the original one but you can get the software at http://nds-gear.com/software-r4v2.zip

Hopefully this one should work for you

My R4 revolution for DS isn't working! (It worked fine like yesterday while my cousin was playing it) usually it goes to the turning on screen of the DS and immediately to the loading screen opf the R4...


Hello there Sir/Madam! My name is Alex and I work under FixYa.com expert team surveillance.


Take out your card and clean it. Is it responding when you are using it on your pc trough USB? If not card is damaged, but most likely the socket for cards on Nintendo died, because those R4 cards are really proven as not damageable.


Hope this helped and/or advised you on your next move.Please rate my solution, thanks in advance. Wish you good day

R4 card shows 'loading' and wil go to next screen on NDS. SD card works in other r$ so its not the card. Any ideas?


Sounds like you have the wrong firmware on the R4 card. I had a similar problem when I swapped cards with my granddaughter. I had the "R4 Revolution....etc" card and she had a "R4 Upgrade Revolution....etc". They look the same but un beknown to me they need different firmware!!

For the R4 you should using kernel R4 DS v1.18
http://www.r4ds.me/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html

For the R4 Upgrade this should be R4-III v3.13

My DS lite's r4 (memory card) said system date error! Please check NDS system date What is the solution to make my memory card work again


Look on your card and go to the site that is on your card, when you have done that download the recent firmware for your card, take off the firmware you have on your card and put the new formware on your card, one by one, their should be three or four if you have a r4, that should solve the problem, the firmware was updated for the r4 recently to cure problems with nintendo stopping games from loading.

R4i working SLOW on DSi. Loads slow and make save files slow.???


cause DSI is the nintendos attempt to stop R4 card users! see the r4 and GnM cards made nintendo invest in a microsd slot! so try using that card with the dsi instead of the R4 as people now are hacking the micro sd slot to allow any ds rom to be played! faster then th R4 due to the fact that the micro sd is connected right to the motherboard of a ds game slot devices such as R4

Tried to download software for r4 micro sd card 4gb sh but does'nt work.comes on the ds loading ,works fine with 2gb sd card,any ideas? thank's colin


Hey there Colin,

The original R4 card only works with Micro-SD cards up to 2GB in size. To use Micro-SD cards up to 32GB, you need to buy the newer R4 SDHC card or a Nintendo DSi comaptible card. Check out R4 Cards / R4 DS Cards from DSCardWorld.com or NDS-Gear.com (NDS-Gear is probably better if you live in Europe or Canada as their shipping's slightly better internationally).

Good luck!
