Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
Couldn't understand the solution... not very computer literate. Can you explain what I need to do.
I have downloaded the games and they are present when I check on my computer, but when I put it into the DSLite I get this message......help.
first of all , check your r4 version.
there are many.
have you put the right firmware on your r4?
original : http://r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html
r4 revolution pro : http://www.r4dspro.com/download_en.html
r4 ultra and de luxe : http://www.r4deluxe.com/en/down.asp
r4 III : http://www.r4dsl.net/download-en.asp
after that it should work.
or maybe you should format your memory card first.

I found that on the Micro SD card I had managed to put the files in extra folders so the DS couldn't find them.
When I deleted the folders and had just the four files that I'd downloaded (DS Menu dat, moonshell etc) showing along with the games folder, it worked.
The DS was looking for the files and couln't see them because they were within the folder.

If you put the micro sd card in the usb then put it in a computer click on open files or view file then go to r4 menu and go ds mrnu dat and drag it in your moon shell document and then duplicate the file (right click new-document - ds menu dat ) then take the ds menu dat to r4 menu then save and/or save and voila all done

I was getting the 'couldn't find the ds menu.dat' error. It was because I didn't know that the kernal I had downloaded was compressed and I had to use winRAR to uncompress it. Once I'd done that it loaded fine. Also, I had problems loading using a micro SDHC in a R4 flash cartridge that could only read micro SD cards. It would say 'loading...' forever and ever. So anyways, another steep learning curve under this newbie's belt. Hope this helps save a few hours of hair-pulling for someone else.

I had the exact same problem.
I have a Nintendo DS, and R4 card.
Downloaded these files from here: http://www.r4ds.me/download/r4ds.html
Drag and dropped to DS.
Jobs done! No extracting folders, just as is when winrar opens up.

This problem can only be solved by bying a new R4 beacause no websites have:how to download it, or waht the problem is.
So don't bother trying anymore!!!!!!

you can download the files needed for the r4 just google it. You may need to use dslazy or fixit in order for the game to operate. good luck!
