If you reformat the SD card you will not lose any of the software that is on the system. None of that data is stored into the SD card. The only thing that you can save to the SD card are pictures and you can back up you downloaded games onto it. Any software you have downloaded or came on the system will be completely unaffected if you reformat the SD card. Thanks for using FixYa!

Hi anna21,

Formatting the card may fix the problem however you will loose all the data on the card. I have a solution here that can help you but you need a SD Card Reader on your computer to back up the files.

1. Put the SD Card in your Card Reader.
2. Connect it to your PC.
3. If the window pop-up like asking to open with what program select Open as File.
4. If the window does not pop-up, Go to My Computer/Computer. There should be the SD Card Memory.
5. Backup all the save file in your SD Card in other word copy the whole SD card. Save it in your computer. Make sure you remember where you put it.
6. Reformat the SD Card by Right Click and click Fromat
7. Tick Quick Format
8. After it finish formatting, Try open the SD Card. It should be empty.
9. Put back all the copied file back into SD Memory Card.
10. Plug it on your DS. Check the files. Play and Enjoy

Rate me if this helps so I can help others. Thanks for using Fixya.

R4 card shows 'loading' and wil go to next screen on NDS. SD card works in other r$ so its not the card. Any ideas?


Sounds like you have the wrong firmware on the R4 card. I had a similar problem when I swapped cards with my granddaughter. I had the "R4 Revolution....etc" card and she had a "R4 Upgrade Revolution....etc". They look the same but un beknown to me they need different firmware!!

For the R4 you should using kernel R4 DS v1.18
http://www.r4ds.me/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html

For the R4 Upgrade this should be R4-III v3.13

When i put in my r4 card my ds keeps on saying sd/tf error. how do i fix it ?


This problem is most likely caused by corrupt data on your SD card. Your best bet is to format the SD card and and reload the backed up data if you have any.

I hope the info listed above has helped in some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

The DS is telling you that the SD Memory card is faulty. Or at least thats what it "Thinks".

Ds lite unable to locate sd card - using R4 & micro sd


What you will have to do is re format you sd card, their may be to much on the sd card if you are saving files on it, if you have a 4gb sd card only put about 3.6gb of games on it, that leaves plenty of room for your save files, i have had this happen to me when i first started using sd cards, all i did was re format the card, then put the games on again with the firmware,then duplicated all the games and the firmware for the card on my desktop, then if it happened again i can just transfer them over,

Tried to download software for r4 micro sd card 4gb sh but does'nt work.comes on the ds loading ,works fine with 2gb sd card,any ideas? thank's colin


Hey there Colin,

The original R4 card only works with Micro-SD cards up to 2GB in size. To use Micro-SD cards up to 32GB, you need to buy the newer R4 SDHC card or a Nintendo DSi comaptible card. Check out R4 Cards / R4 DS Cards from DSCardWorld.com or NDS-Gear.com (NDS-Gear is probably better if you live in Europe or Canada as their shipping's slightly better internationally).

Good luck!

Sd/tf card error


I use to have similar problems with my DS Card :(. In the end, I end up buying a new one - I personally use http://www.NDS-Gear.com

Apparently, the Sd/tf message occurs when there is a problem with the connection between the micro SD and the DS Card or between the DS card and the DS. You can try giving your micro SD a good clean ( give it a good blow) and see if that makes any difference. Also, I heard that sticking some papers at the back of the DS Card works for some people. If nne of this work, you would robably want to buy a new one or try and get a repalcement from your seller.

to format the card is pretty simple really, all you have to do is:-

make sure your card is plugged in with the p.c same as you drag and drop
go to my computer
look for where your flash drive is
dont click into it, right click it
a little list will show
go to format
then click start (dont use quick format)
