Try a more upto date firmware from R4 SITE,
Also did you format the SD card first? do a full format with fat16 if possible.

My ds freezes when loading the R4, or it says that there is no game in the ds slot


Stuck on Loading Screen This usually indicates that the software kernel on the micro sd memory card has become corrupted. It can also happen if the micro sd memory card is overloaded with games, music and video files etc. The solution is to reinstall the kernel software on the micro sd card and ensure the micro sd memory card is not overloaded. Leave about 25% memory free.
download SDformatter and format the sd card with that, place all the files on there, none in folders..
  • Download the correct software kernel from the manufacturers website
  • Unzip the files using a suitable programme such as Win Zip or 7 Zip.
  • Open the folder containing the unzipped files and copy the 4 files (Moonmemo, Moonshl2, R4iMenu and R4.dat) to the root of the memory card.
  • At this point put the memory card into your R4 card. Start your console and ensure the R4 card is operating correctly.
  • You may have to run an upgrade file at this point

When I put in R4, screen just says loading?


I spent hours on this one and finally worked it out. I have four kids and the ordeal started when I ordered two R4 cards and they turned out to be different, so I found out lots.

Odds are, you have bought a clone R4 card, not the genuine thing. If it is genuine, you can download the latest software from www.r4ds.cn. If that doesn't work, you more than likely have a clone.

The genuine R4 card uses encrypted software, so you will never get it to work with the genunine download. Just a well all the clone manufacturers have clone sites with clone software, the trick is to know which one you have and what can work. Here is what I discovered.

Turn the R$ card over and look at green printed circuit board just above the electronic contacts. You may see some white printing.
One of my cards says "R4-SDHC". This means that the R4 card can take a high capacity SD card. There are any number of versions of the software available, try www.r4sdhc.com. At the time this was written, version 1.32 worked just fine for my card.

The other card says "ROHS CARD-7A". This is not a high capacity card and no software will work with an SD card with higher than 2GB memory. So if you are trying with a 4GB card, like I was, it won't work. For this one, I switched to a 2GB Micro SD card and downloaded "r4team v 1.19" from www.linfoxdomain.com and it worked fine.

If the above software downloads don't work, there are a stack available on www.linfoxdomain.com under the Nintendo DS tab, so go with trial and error, and you should eventually get there. Note that It took a few goes with the first card before I found v 1.32 and got there.

So good luck, I feel like I know so much more now.

My r4 says "?menu" when i start it up


Hi,

Stuck at the “MENU” screen after loading DSi.
No firmware or wrong firmware was installed in the SD card. Please refer to the instruction to install R4i‐SDHC to the SD card. The instruction can be found at the R4i‐SDHC official web site
www.r4i-sdhc.com.


Make sure you have properly installed firmware.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

Thanks.

Unable to read sd card


Hi grecko, Hope this helps, I've just bought a 4gb memory card for my daughter's ds so she can fit 58-60 games instead of 28 on a 2gb memory card and have downloaded and put a file onto the memory card before loading games onto it.

Supercard DS one have a site where you can download the files you need and it gives help. Guess it's the same if using an R4 supercard too but I bought an R4 card for partner preloaded with software.
