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.

I have recently purchase a R4 chip for a NDSL and have tried loading games via a disk and by a download. I have confirmed that the files are on the chip but when I try to load them on the handset the unit...


have you installed the R4 system data on the memory card from the R4 website?
If all is well with the data on the card then you may have a connection problem between the sd card and R4 card or R4 card and ds. so investigate the cleanliness of the pins and the tightness of the cards in their sockets.
Some copy DS lites are fussy and don't work well with smart cards. A new motherboard would cure this but it will cost you £50-60

My ds keeps saying loading when i insert r4 card


Make sure you have the correct kernel loaded onto the card. Also some r4 cards only accept up to a limited amount of gb's. I think mine only can hold up to a 2gb sd micro card. When I first used it I was using a 4gb card and it would stick on the loading screen until I loaded everything onto a 2gb card .... hope this helps

Ive copied the files across and copied games across but when running the R4 in the DS it sticks on loading screen.


There might be a couple of things wrong. It might be that you have a knock off R4 card. If the card is genuine then you may want to go to the R4 website and download the latest firmware for it. Copy the files to the TF card. Make sure you make folders for you content. Label one movies... games... music... etc.. The other problem that you might have is the SD micro card may not be compatible with the R4. I know with my card it is compatible only up to 2gb.. so if you have a card that is more than that it will stick on the loading screen when you power up your DS... hope this helps

No cd with r4, just says loading so need to know what software to download


So start again, delete everything from the R4.
Go to http://www.r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html
click the "R4 V1.18 kernel (English/French/Korean)" and download it.
Extract the download to a folder. then drag its contents to the Micro SD card, check it in your ds it should work, if not, let me know the model of your R4 it could be different

How do i load the software onto my r4 revolution card? it sticks at the laoding screen so i need to load the software but do not know how to do it .


It's EXTREMELY easy. First, of all, check on the box to make 100% SURE that it's and R4 and not a copy/fake. The R4 software doesn't work on fakes, so you'll be stuck on the loading screen if it is a fake. To tell if it's a fake, look on the box. If it has the SDHC logo on it it is definitely not an R4, probably an R4SDHC. There will be a link somewhere on the box to the site where you can get the downloads, software, and such. If it's an original R4 (which I highly doubt...), go to this site: http://www.r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html and scroll to the bottom of the page to English Kernel v.1.18 and click Download1. Once it downloads, extract the files from the .zip file/iTunes file. To do this, right click the icon of what you just installed and select extract here. Once it extracts, put all of the files like moonshell and stuff into your r4 memory card. If moonshell and the other files came in a folder when you extracted it, go into the folder and copy the files, not the folder itself or it won't work.

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.
