Although there are some "home-brew" games and software out there this type of cartridge is largely used for illegally copying games. Some of the software available includes MP3 playback programs, movie players and PDA software so you can make use of these cartridges for legitimate purposes, however "home-brew" games vary in quality and so called ROM files are normally illegal copies of games/software that are subject to copyright licensing law.

    Several web retailers sell them (and similar products) including some of the big name ones.
    Unfortunately we cannot advertise retailers or give prices as that would constitute a quote, however I can tell you that this type of product usually retails for anything from approximately $80US (£40GBP) to approximately $100US (£50GBP). Shop around to find the best price. You'll find that both big name electronics/game retailers and small, specialist companies have several products of this type at varying prices.

R4 for nintendo ds lite does not work


Make sure that you have the latest firmware installed in your R4 micro SD card. You can get the latest firmware here:
http://en.r4ds.me/kernel/English-1.18.rar

After downloading, extract the .rar file. Copy "_DS_MENU.DAT" and "_DS_MSHL.NDS" to the root directory of your micro SD (ex: E:\ or F:\),
To play games, simply copy the games you have downlaoded to the root directory also.

When i turned on my ds, it says "couldn't find ds_MENUdat


It sounds like you need to figure out exactly what kind of DS card you have. Check out NintendoDSCard.com's DS Card Setup Guide which should sort you out.

Also, I recommend only buying genuine cards since a lot of the fakes tend to break quite easily. Maybe from dscardworld.com or from nds-gear.com if you're in Canada/Europe since their international shipping's a bit cheaper

Good luck!

Ds wont find games on r4 card


Go to www.r4ds.com download & unzip the kernel. This will create a folder with the operating system.Copy these files to the root of the SD card (There should be 2 files & 2 folders) After this, copy the .nds files also onto the root of the SD card, and the games should be visible & playable when you turn on the DS 
NOTE: this will not work for the Nintendo DSi

2nd R4 Card doesn't work


Hello there,

The original R4v2 card only accepts up to 2GB Micro-SD cards, while subsequent R4 SDHC and R4v3 cards will accept 4GB cards and higher. It's likely that you didn't purchase the same type of card the second time around.

If you are looking for a reliable place to buy DS and DSi cards fromthat will stock originals, I'd recommend using http://www.NDS-Gear.com(I've used them myself). They test every card before sending whichmeans you won't receive dud cards, and more importantly they havesupport before AND after your purchase by people who reply very quicklyand in perfect English. Some of these dodgy websites take 4-6 weeks todeliver and never answer e-mails, so I'm glad these guys are different.Oh, and they guarantee to dispatch by the next working day, whichalways helps with speed and all. And they're recommended by a lot ofthe DS card help sites, too.

Good luck!
