Hey there,

Do you have the original R4 card? It's possible that your DS isn't recognising it because the original one (before the R4i and R4 SDHC came out etc) only accepts up to 2GB Micro-SD cards. You should check the size of the Micro-SD card you're using at the moment.

I recommend buying R4i cards / R4i DS cards from either dscardworld.com or nds-gear.com - probably nds-gear if you're in Canada or Europe since their international rates are a bit cheaper

Good luck!

SOURCE: r4 card just says loading in my ds and sd card works on other r4

Try re-loading the frimware on the SD card or loading a newer version. I have found that some firmware does not work on some R4 cards. Has this R4 ever worked? Also inspect the R4 for damage, my nephews R4 wasn't working and the problem was a bite mark on the unit

Hello guy,

It sounds like your micro sd card is bad. Can you get a hold of anew one and test it out? If that works fine but your R4 still doesn't work then you might have a bad fake.

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.

NDS not recognising R4 but will still play DS game cartridges.


Is your DS a DS Lite? If it is, open up your R4. Fold up a piece of paper and put it right behind the gold contacts (on the side facing away from the DS). Close it all up and it should work.

Ds does not recognise R4


Try eject, blow into the port then reinsert. There is a possibility that your ds has blocked the r4 from being used on that ds.

In the download section is the r4 manual follow that and you should be ok.
