Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

Can't Format MicroSD

It started when my sis tried to turn on the DS after my brother had a turn...
All 13 games we're suddenly deleted leaving only 1 game.

First thing i wanted to do was get all the games back since luckily they we're in the computer.

Moment i insert the MicroSD, it's askin [or forcing] me to Format the MicroSD.
Obviously i was hesitant cuz i didn't wanna lose all my save files since .SAV & .NDS are both seperate files.

I tried to work around it to see if i can check inside the SD. But gave up and said 'Yes' on formatting.

After i formatted the SD.
I did my usual of drag and dropping like i did the first time i got the SD. But as i got to dragging the next game, suddenly it cuts off and couldn't recognise my SD.

I insert the SD to my USB a few times but still the same results. Can't format since it keep asking me to 'Insert A Disk' each time i try to go in the folder. And says the disk drive is empty if i try to format it.
Tried putting it in my DS and gives out a endless 'Loading' screen.

Thats all the info i can give out. & i tried other computers and my printer, but to no avail. Help Me Pls !!!!

How do i get deleted games back on ds r4 card cause little sister deleted some of the best games like mario kart ds and cooking mama and also super mario!!! im so angry !!! plz plz plz plz help me plz...

Cards like R4 allow you to store multiple games on one card. So when you start your DS, you choose which game you want to play and do not have to take all your games with you. The R4 relies on a microSD card to keep track of the games and save files. Your actual game, you should be able to recover from the original game cartridge (since you do actually own the game).

To recover your game progress (save file), you can put the microSD card in your PC (using the appropriate adapter) and just have a recovery program look for the files on the microSD card. There are several good FREE file recovery softwares on the internet. They will likely be your only shot a recovering your game progress but that depends on how much you've used your R4. If you have used it a lot, your save game may have been overwrite which means it is lost for good.

Whatever you do, do not do anything illegal.

MicroSD card problems

Try letting the phone format the card. 1) Backup the music files you already have on the card. 2) From your computer, right click on the drive representing the card and re-format the card. 3) With the phone turned off, insert the card into your phone. Power on the phone and follow the steps to have your phone format the card. 4) Now copy the files back to the card using your computer.

See if that does the trick. If not, try performing the same steps as above, but instead of re-formatting the card in your computer, go into disk manager and delete the MicroSD card's partition (be careful that you select the correct drive representing your MicroSD card). When you re-partition the card, uncheck the "format" option, which will leave the card unformatted. Then let your phone format the card.

Good Luck!

Nintendo ds games

you need to go into the system itself and delete files from the DS itself. The DS has the capability to save files. when the game starts up, go into systems and you should be able to find where the files are and start to delete some.
