    Same issue: EDGE.DAT and the "EDGE" folder (containing cheats.dat) have been copied to the root of my microSD card; but it still boots up and reads, "EDGE.DAT tidak menemukan!"

    Same problem. I'm wondering of you have to use the original USB card reader, because I'm just using the SD card adapter that came with the Micro SD card? I don't have the original edge USB card reader.

    I have it too. Whenever I try to load it, it says EDGE.DAT tidak menukum! and I can't play it.

    When I use my adaptor, it says it is EDGE, has games, and reads.

    but DS is different

I dont know how to download games on mt tt card from the ps

If by ps you mean PC then that is very easy. Please note that it is illegal to downlaod games if you dont already own. Only download to make backups. Now Lets start the tutorial.
The first thing you do is to find Roms for your favorite DS games. You can try Google,, And various other sites.
The download will probably be in a .rar or .zip format so you need Winrar to extract it.
When you have the extracted rom file the the name of the file should be YOURGAME.nds
then just drag and drop to your games folder on your Mt TT.
Hope it works

I have a dsi light. When purchased it came with an acekard 2 which had multiple games on it. I hooked up to wireless internet which contained update. It will no longer allow me to have access to my...

sounds like you will need to find an updated version of firmware for the acekard. game system updates will usually have some kind of patch included with them to block the use of homebrew devices

Message " System date error! Please check NDS system date"

I read that changing the date to 28.09.2009 should work, as this happened to me today too... and it worked. Very weird, but try it anyway :)

R4 couldn t find ds menu dat


Did you install the R4 kernel?

If you didn't click here, scroll to the bottom of the page and download the "English Kernel v1.8" (I'm assuming you want English).

1) Firstly connect your micro SD card and then extract all the files from the zip file and copy them all to the card.

2) Next put your .nds files, mp3 etc. onto the SD card (anywhere in the root of the card is fine).

3) Put your SD card into the R4, pop it into the DS/DSL and that should be it.

Hope this helps, any problems feel free to message me.

The Olympus people told me to to to

Copy & paste the link they gave you (everything within the 'www' to the '.zip') and paste it in your address bar at the very top of your browser (not your search engine field). This is a direct link and will prompt you to open or save the file. Choose 'Save' and then save it to your desktop. You'll have to extract the .zip file once you've downloaded it.

And I assume they gave you another link for the Vista/XP2000 update? Do the same thing as I mentioned above.

My DS says loading on the top screen! Help

I had this problem for awhile. Go to the R4DS home page (google it) and download the most recent firmware. If you have a R4DS clone, then you will need to find the home page of that device and download the firmware there. If the files are zipped, extract thim with the default Windows zipped files manager or 7-zip. Copy all the files inside to the root of your 2gb card. This should fix the problem.

Need to know how to get games to work with my r4 ds revoultion card.downlosded software but cant get games to work .do i have to extract them?

First get the R4 OS installed onto the card (into the root dir), then make a sub directory called NDS. Put your .NDS files into that directory. you should now have a couple of sub dirs, NDS, Moonshl2, and r4iMenu or something similar. and some r4 OS files in the root directory.

R4 should boot, then pick the left icon (games) and load a game from the resulting list.

Yes you must extract the files. It won't play from a zip file. all files must end in .NDS for them to work. There are a lot of cool homebrew out there for these cards, have fun.

How to put the nds download games in memory card,and in my NDS?

put your mem card in the computer and format the card to fat not fat32.

if you got a software disc with it put the files on to the micro sd card if you didnt then download files from r4s web site and put these on the micro sd card.

then download the nds files from the web (make sure they are ***.nds not zip files) then just put them on to the mem card. insert the mem card in to your r4 and happy playing.

when i say put them on you can drag and drop file or right click and the send them to your mem card.

So many problem...what's wrong

Assuming you are using the "Edge" card.

You need to download
Then unzip the file using 7Zip, of WinZip and
1. Clear your memory card.
2. Put all the files (from the unzipped file) onto your memory card.
3. Check it all works with the DS.
4. Remove memory card, load games.
5. Play.

N5DS - How do i use it?

1. If you don't already have a micro sd card or reader, then get one.
2. Go to homepage of N5DS ( set language to english on site, go to download, and then download update v 1.19 kernel(English) to desktop.
3. If you don't have winrar to extract rar files go get the english version at and install it.
4. Extract the kernel for n5ds by right clicking it and click extract. Extract it to the desktop. open the folder until you see the folder with a bunch of files like .dat moonshell and stuff. then connect your micro sd reader to your computer and then put it in micro sd card. Once your computer installs it drag all those files into the micro sd card. Then when you turn it on it should work. What games were you talking about? like nintendogs and stuff? those are commercial roms and I cannot provide ayou a link to. Or was it homebrew games?
