Not sure why you are connecting it to a computer? You should be connecting a micro sd card with the card reader provided, so you can copy and paste software including the N5 system software to the micro sd card. Then put the micro sd card in the n5 then the n5 in the ds lite. (the card should show up in my computer and you should be able to format it with FAT32 system)
please post further comments if I am not understanding the problem correctly
it sounds like a software problem.
follow the following instructions.
Please can you try and reformat the 2gb micro sd card in your pc and copy firmware from the CD back onto the 2gb micro sd card following the instructions below.be warned that formating will remove even the games from the card so make sure you have a backup of the games saved to your computer. any saved games will also be erased.
To format the 2gb micro sd card 1. Insert sd card into usb stick and into usb port. 2. Close autoplay screen if it appears. 3. Right click on removeable drive. (Eg D, E, F or J etc) that appeared on screen in computer window. 4. Left click on format in menu and when format window appears, tick quick format box and select ok. This will erase all content on the sd card and remove any corrupt firmware.
To reload firmware 1. Insert cd into pc cd/dvd drive. 2. Open cd drive on screen and copy and paste the files and folders from the system/english 1.18 folder on the cd to the removeable drive that the usb and micro sd card are in. The folders that you will copy are "_system_" and "moonshl" and the files will be "menu.dat" and "mshl.nds". 3. Once copied, check removeable drive to ensure files and folders have copied over. 4. Remove usb stick from pc and insert sd card back into R4. R4 menu should appear on DS screen.this normaly sorts this out.paul
For the N5 you need to fully format the 2gb card, don't be tempted to do a quick format because it won't work.
You are right to use version 1.28 but copy each file across individually in the order they are listed when you have downloaded them. Then you can create your 3 folders assuming you want them
I have spend a few months on and off arguing with these cards but doing as above should solve your problem.
1. If you don't already have a micro sd card or reader, then get one. 2. Go to homepage of N5DS (http://www.dsn5.com/EN-N5/n5-en.htm) 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 rarlabs.com 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?
listen guys, if u have n5 and u are using a 4gb SDHC you need to upgrade the firmware to 1.18 which is the latest right now. I had the same problem, updated the kernel and it works dam good. Here is the link.
click on N5 and download the v1.18
try doing the same method for r4 but use the r4 kernel. Having the latest kernel can save u lots of problems.
found solution to R5:
download latest firmware (1.19 at present) and unzip
format MicroSD to Fat or Fat32
Copy firmware onto MSD in this order ONE BY ONE !!!!!!
This step is very important!!!!
4. _SYSTEM_ folder
5. moonshl folder
Then load your .nds files into the root.
I've had absolutely no problems with this card so far and if
installed correctly it works brilliantly!!!
