Take all the memory contents out to your computer as backup, format your memory to fat32 and put all the memory contents again to the memory from your computer. If not working try downloading the card system files from the card manufacturer site, these files are needed to run the card just like the operative system in your PC, if these files get corrupt or deleted the card wont work.

Problem with ds fire card error:openx.dat.error


Hello,

I found something about your error on this previous Fixya solution :

Take all the memory contents out to your computer as backup, format your memory to fat32 and put all the memory contents again to the memory from your computer. If not working try downloading the card system files from the card manufacturer site, these files are needed to run the card just like the operative system in your PC, if these files get corrupt or deleted the card wont work.

Hope it helped.

Wont read ds card


i think your ds card needs reformatting, or not actually the card but the micro sd, back up all the games and reformat, if stuck let me know.

Menu will not load


plug your usb for r4 in (with the adaptor) . go to "My Computer" , select "Removable Desk (F:)" .

when you do, look for _DS_MENU.DAT, if you cant find it, thats the reason for your R4 not working. if you found it, but your r4 is still not working, you've lost some systems for the R4, such as DS MSHL etc.

if you have, i advise you buy a new adaptor.

Nintendo dslite ncard


I did have Error: Data is not align 16k! when i start up my ds.
What I did was..

All the files you need are at www.neoflash.com.
Your need (MK5) v1.45 which is in the download section.

Some of the nds roms do needed unraring before putting on memory card. They should be in .nds format etc.

The files you need are...

DSYSTEM (Entire Folder And Contents
MK5_2Mbit_test_v5.nds
MK5_PassMe.nds
xmenu.dat

When you have these files THEN you can format by...

Please insert both cards in to the DS and power up, tap the screen to continue as you would for any normal game.

You will then come to the menu "USB Mode" and "Menu Mode"
Instead of selecting one please press and hold the "select button" on the DS then tap "start"

Select "Quick Format"
Once complete restart the DS, you will have to tap the screen as above and this time select" USB MODE"

By formatting the menu file will have been deleted from internal Memory and will need replacing with the files. downloaded from neoflash.com
(MK5) v1.45

DSYSTEM (Entire Folder And Contents
MK5_2Mbit_test_v5.nds
MK5_PassMe.nds
xmenu.dat

(Drag and drop these files only)

Now your new system is ready, restart NDS and enjoy


Will fix almost all problems with DS Firecard and applies to both 8 and 16gbit.

N card


listen,i'm confused on your question.but i'll still help.don't turn off your ds on and off.that may shorten the life,which means you'll spend more time charging then playing,also don't take out your game card while your ds is on.save your game,go to the main menu and turn it off.once it is off you can take the card out.if this is not helpful call the nintendo customor support center number 1-800-255-3700.
