    Same issue almost..

    1. I have NDS with a 2GB micro sd card.
    2. I moved the correct files to the root directory onto my micro sd / usb reader.
    3. I then swapped out the 2GB micro sd card into my R4 / NDS.
    4. Turned the power on my NDS.
    5. I then get a Loading...screen.

    So, I decided to see if I reformat my micro sd card from Fat16 to Fat32 if this would work..

    This failed as well.. I stuck with a Loading.. screen.

    Please help!

There are two things this could be. Either the R4 is broken or some file on the SD card is corrupted. I would try Re-formating the Micro SD card first. Make sure to back up all of your game save first though. I hope I helped.
