R4DS - R4 Revolution for DS (Nintendo DS Lite blank cartridge!)


We've recently stumbled upon this slick doo-hicky called the R4 Revolution for Nintendo DS/Lite. The R4DS is basically a blank cartridge for the Nintendo DS or Nintendo DS Lite. The R4 uses any microSD flash memory card (up to 4GB according to the official site, but 2GB is recommended, does not support microSDHC) for storage. This means you can put music, videos and ROMs onto the microSD, plug it into the R4 and play them on your Nintendo DS! There are NES, SNES, TurboGrafx16, Genesis (and many more) emulators available for the Nintendo DS. You could possibly walk around with all of your favorite console games from the past 2 decades on your Nintendo DS!

UPDATE: There's been a lot of changes since this blog entry was published on 01/20/08. The orginal R4 is still for sale, but a few clones have popped up on the scene that supports the bigger microSD card like the 4GB, 8GB and 32GB microSDHC! With a 32GB microSD, you'll be able to carry around the last few decades worth of games on 1 cartridge. Note: all the cards listed below uses different software. To find the software for your specific R4 card, check the links @ the bottom of the vendor's page after you click on one of the R4 links below. Here are the different types of R4 cards:

Link to official R4DS site: http://www.r4ds.com/index-en.htm If you're looking for R4 .sav files, here's a site that will convert any save to a .SAV file for you: http://www.shunyweb.info/convert.php If you're looking for some Nintendo DS ROMs, we don't have any! BUT there are plenty of people that store their collections online. Copy and Paste the following search string into a Google search and you'll find all sorts of NDS roms!

Copy and Paste the following string into a Google search box: {-inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +(nds|rom) "mario"}

Here is the v1.18 firmware since the official R4DS site seems to have problems staying up. Download the R4DS v1.18 firmware: English-1.18.rar

I'm sort of in the same situation. I have 120 games on my R4 card but my ds won't play the save file games and needed to be updated. So when I put it in my computer it showed all the files and then everything was gone...it said nothing can be saved and may be lost. Now my computer does not recognize the card and says it needs to be formatted. But my DS shows the games but still don't play the save file games. Also on my DS Lite when I hit Upgrade...it says...."to enable upgrade feature again, please restore R4i.Menu/flash.r41" Can anyone help???

Umm , my games are gone ..

Hey there , um I had a few games on my R4 , but 1 morning all of them were GONE ! Except for Animal Crossing Wild World . Does anyone know what has happened ? Is it the R4 ? I have a DS Lite :P I plan on downloading new games but should I ???

Hello, so basically i

Hello, so basically i happened to stumble across an r4 card, now i haven't owned one before and i have no idea how to use one, by the way i think it is one of the newest versions because it says "R4i 3DS Revolution for DS (N3DS/NDSi XL/NDSL/NDS) www.r4ids.com" on it, it already had a few games on it but i wanted some more, anyways i youtubed a few videos and ended up downloading winRAR, and went on ndsuniverse.com and downloaded 2 games to see if it worked, it said there wasnt anymore room on the sd card, its 2gb and there were only a few games on it. So i took one of my own micro sd cards and tried downloading the games on there, they are on the sd card but when i put the sd card inside the r4 card and try to play it all i get is a "loading..." and it never ends up loading, so i'm not sure what is wrong with it, and i guess i'm doing it wrong. If anybody has any tips please let me know. I would like to download more games on it.

Bad Connection?

Hi, I'm having a few issues with my R4 card. I used to be able to use it very well and everything worked fine. It
had the occasional problem with a bad connection but apart from that it was fine. However now I can't seem to access it anymore. It gets stuck when it is loading and all you see is the words "Loading..." then nothing else happens. Is there anything I can do?

Update on Kenerel Help

Hi! So after months of inactivity on my SDHC Revolution R4 with a YSMENU. ARP, I've decidied to upgrade my kenerel since many of my recent game downloads have not worked. After downloading the lastest kerenel, I copied it onto my r4 and replaced the old one. As per the instructions of updating there should be no problem. However, as I eagerly turned on my DS, the menu can't seem to come up and it only says that it's loading, Please give an explanation or provide some tips on what I have done wrong. Also has anyone managed to play a game but have trouble creating a new file as you downloaded it? I recently downloaded a game and upon creating a new file, the game works and there's background music and it just doesn't load and no there isn't a lag that over a hour long for a new game. Anyways please help out and thank you!

newgames

Hi recently i have gotten a new 4gb. r4ultra with a patch installed, i have noticed that certain games that i wasn't albe to play were accessible with the patch plz explain this. also, i used to use the site hkorz.com for downloading games, but the site has shut down, can anyone reference me to a good safe easy to download game site? Another thing i've noticed is that with these new games sites, the roms i downloaded won't load even with the patch, it just says loading error however my old games still work. I have read online that new games have r4 or other emulator protection i don't konw if this is true but new games don't seem to load, my r4 isn't that old unlike the original that some people use, so i am deeply troubled by this and if anyone has anyidea plz help.

Stuck on the loading page

i constantly played my R4 game, then i put in a different game. when i put my R4 back into my nintendo it wont get past the loading page. I dont have a cue what is wrong or what to do.

I have an R4 card, and after

I have an R4 card, and after I did the System Update on my DSi, an error comes up, and I'm not able to play any games. But I'm able to play it on other DSi or DS. Is there ANYTHING that I can do to fix this problem? If you have a solution PLEASE e-mail reply
Thank you for reading.

Find any help ??

Hi,
my son updated his dsi yesterday and he has the same problem, it was working fine until he updated his dsi, now he gets an error message when he tries to play the r4 card, his card works on his brothers dsi so we tried his brothers card on his dsi, same problem, it wont work so it looks like updating the firmware on your dsi will stop your r4 card from working !!! Did you end up sorting it out ?? I have spent most of the day trying to find a solution on the net and have come up with nothing. As stated, his r4 card is fine because it works on his brothers dsi, this is sooooooooo damn frustrating !! If there is anyone who reads this and know a solution could they "PLEASE" let me know wot I can do to get this working ... I tried formatting his r4 card and d/loading the updates suggested but that didnt work either !!

R4 No card in slot and system errors,card not recodnised in PC

A lot of these problems are simply caused by the R4 Gold not making good contact with the connectors in the DS. This can corrupt the micro SD card so it cannot be read by anything and cause the DS to report system errors or not be recognised at all. I found the solution on this site earlier. A small thin piece of cardboard stuck on top of the R4 fixed the problem for me. I fixed the corrupted SD card by fromatting it in a mobile phone and then used the Panasonic SDFormatter to reformat the card to the correct size. Copied the kernal and the games back and everything works beautifully.

Cardboard .... You are a

Cardboard .... You are a genius!! Thank you!! That totally worked!! :)

r4 card not in slot

How can i use a small piece of cardboard to fix the problem? Is it necessary to reformat the micro sd card? Thanks for replying.

Thanks!

This is the ONLY thing that worked. People kept saying "reformat your R4." but that makes no sense at all, lol. Thanks so much for the tip.

the micro sd card wont show on my PC (windows XP)

i have the R4i GOLD V1.41 and when i put the r4 card on the PC:
1- the r4 card pen drive doesent show the light it has to show.
2- the pc doesent make the beep sound that it is supposed to make when it findes a new hardwere.
3- i cant find the icon to open the r4i gold card on "MY COMPUTER" menu.
and thats about it- NOTHING HAPPENS WHEN I PUT THE R4i GOLD CARD ON THE PC.

i have download some new games in to my r4, but it stops on the game loading page. It works on other game that i have in my r4 already, so i hope that someone help me on this... X( some one help me..

Newer Nintendo DS ROMs not loading FIXED!

If you own an original R4 DS flash card like most of us, you've probably noticed the newer DS ROMs will not boot up on R4DS running firmware v1.18. Our resident DS flash card expert posted this quick tutorial on getting your original R4 to work with newer ROMs using the Wood firmware. Head over to this page to see the solution: New DS ROMs not loading on original R4 DS running firmware 1.18 (FIX)

I spent about 5 mins updating my original R4 DS using this Wood firmware and it solved all of my "white screen" issues when trying to load a DS ROM!

About my r4...

I just recently got a game (like, 20 mins ago) and I did everything that I needed to in order to play them (i.e. changing them from patch files to nds files) but when I go to play them, it says that the files are corrupted... Do I have to re-download these files, or is it a simple problem that I'm just to stupid (or smart as some people would say, "simple things may always be the hardest things") to find out why this is occurring...?

Please help me, cuz I really want to play this game!

re: About my r4...

Hi. Please clarify "changing them from patch files to nds files". This is probably your problem because a patch file can not be changed to a NDS file. Did you mean you applied a patch to a .nds file? Please post the exact filenames you're using (eg new-super-mario.nds) so we can better assist you. Cheers!

MY R4 IS NOT WORKING AT ALL

Loading

My R4 card was working yesterday, but when I tried it today, it just kept 'loading'. After reading some tips, I tried to connect it to the computer to see if it was the software, but it doesn't pick it up. My computer makes the 'bleep' to say something has connected, but when I look in the 'my computer' area, it's not there. HELP PLEASE!!

I'm having a problem peeple! Please help me.

When I turn my DSi xl on I keep on seeing LOADING and a black screen background. I tried everything to fix it. EVERYTHING I have been playing the ds for about 3 months and everything has been fine, games go on, they work, beautiful. It's just a couple of days I haven't played it, and it's doing this to me.. These are the important folders I have: MOONSHL, _aol and YSmenu... am I missing anything? Please email me here freshcuts_kbtw@hotmail.com if you can help me, or reply to this post

R4 game deleted

Hi can anyone help.

My son was playing on his nintendo using R4 card when he said that he couldn't find Animal Crossing. It is no longer on the list of games on his R4 card. He says it's been deleted.

Can anyone help us with this problem? Can we restore this game?
Please help.
Many thanks Sue.

Google for "recuva". Deleted files can be recovered if their space has not already been overwritten on the chip/drive.

WARNING the next part requiers a computer this only works if its a computer NOT a laptop go to romsite.net its a website that has many links that are download pages .type in animal crossing on the website and a load of options for the game should show up click on animal crossing and press on one of the folowing buttons that are yellow they will say:download from fileserve ,download from megauplaod ,download from wupload and download from file sonic click on any one of those appart from wupload cuz it never works at all. u can insert ur r4 chip (sd card )into the usb u should have got with the chip put the usb into the pc and it should come up with a small screen on ur pc click that off u dont need that and go to my computer then open removal disk and there shold be a letter next to it like F or G etc.click on it then it shuld show a page that has all your sons games close that down but dont click it off cuz its inportant then got back to romsite.net and go to the link u opened earlier download it from the web link and it should appear in ur downloads open the file and extract it . then cut and paste the game file and put it into the removle disk ur son now he as his new game .

No I dont think so once

No I dont think so once deleted its gone for good, My son did it with mario karts but luckily my niece had the same game on her R4 card so just copied it over on to his..??

MY card hates me...

Yeah, I have a problem as well...
The thing is, i was trying to download the new wood for my r5 revolution sdhc or whatever, right? But after all my missed intents, now it doesn't want to work (stays on Loading like a little b...). And then, I put the old software back, but it still doesn't work. And trying to see what wasn't working, i changed the microSD card with another one my sibling has... mine worked on hers, but hers didn't wwork on mine at all (same thing), meaning... the card doesn't work... I guess? So is it really that? If not, what is it? And how can I fix it? Please help me with this, and i'd rly appreciate it >.<

Many Thanks

r4 card help

Well what you should do is delete everything from the R4 Card and start from scratch. First go to the Website it says on the r4 and Then click on the dowlaods section on the website if there is one. Dowlaod the latest version of the kernel and use A program called Winrar to extract it to the r4. The just dowlaod games and put them directly anywhere on your r4 card.

Wont save my games

I have that problem too where i play, save and turn the system off and when i restart my saved game is nowhere to be found.
Quite irritating when youve played for an hour or so, so would really appreciate some help if anyone knows how to deal with the problem.

ds card wiped?

I had loaded a bunch of new games onto my R4, and tested them out, they worked fine. I turned off the DS and turned it back on again, to select a different game. Suddenly the message "Can't find _DS_MENU.DAT" appears onscreen, and I can't do anything! So then I turned off the DS and plugged in the Micro SD card to see what was up...and NOTHING appears in the files on the card. Nothing! I figured it somehow got wiped, so when I tried to drag and drop new games in, it says "insufficient space." So are all the files still there, somehow, just hiding?

How do I fix this? It was working FINE just minutes ago!

Re: ds card wiped

hello this might be the case... when you were downloading the games you accidently deleted _DS_MENU_DAT.anyway if you already figured it out never mind.

Win-Rar has better quality but needs a payment. 7-zip has got slight different quality than win-rar but is free
Open up the File manager of whichever one you download(WIN-RAR only comes with one file which is the file manager itself while 7-zip comes with a dozen files and contains file manager as well)

Now double click on the .rar file in the file manager and it will split into a dozen files. find the .nds file and copy it onto your sd card. now you can play it! HOPE THIS HELPS!!!!!

.rar files are a different

.rar files are a different kind of .zip files. You need to download a program to unzip the .rar files into the actual rom files that the DS can read.

Keeps on saying loading

When I turn my DSL on I keep on seeing LOADING and a black screen background. I tried everything to fix it, except opening the DSL itself. What's the problem of my DSL? It's been like this for probably 5 months and I haven't fix it yet.

r4

That is because you have to setup your r4 before you do anything. did you get the moonshell etc

R4 iii upgrade revolution

My R4 iii is not recognized by my NDSL... it says there is no cart in slot 1. i have latest kernal on the 2Gb micro sd card in my r4iii

any help please?

My R4 iii Upgrade Revolution

it isn't even recognized as a nds cart, when i turn on my DS lite it just says there is no game cart in slot 1. I have the newest firmware on my 2 Gb micro SD card. I am not sure if it is busted or if it's just the firmware.. this is not a problem for me since i also have a CycloDS evolution, i haven't used the R4iii for a while and wanted to see if i could use it again, to see if it is worth keeping.

bottom line is, my NDS lite will not recognize it in slot 1.

please and thank you.

this might help

I had a friend who had a similar problem. Apparently, the cards' "sensor" thing wasn't touching the ds "sensor". She put a small piece or cardboard in behind it to push it close enough to connect and her ds was able to read the r4 cart. Hope this helps you! :)

R4DS Ultra Question

Hello,
Recently my son had gotten a R4DS Ultra and had been playing it fine when suddenly when he tried to play it it reads" An error has occurred" and it won't go any further. We tried resetting the date and still the same outcome. Not sure if this question has been answered before so I do apologize if it was but I could not locate the answer. Could someone please help me with this, thank you. Getting ready to take it Gamestop and have them look at it but would like to save myself the trip and cost if it's something I can do at home. Please email me at mfd2976@firehousemail.com Thanks again.

I have a Nintendo DSI with R4i card. After I updated it to 1.4E version I couldn't play games anymore. What should I do?

? Menu

? Menu
Has anyone sorted out the "? Menu" issue? Everytime I insert the card, a red "? Menu" comes up. Any help please?

red ?menu

try changing time backwards, to before april 2010, worked for me

?Menu problem

I had the same issue - the way I solved it was that I was using the wrong firmware for the R4 card that I bought.

The link here goes to the firmware for the BASIC R4 card. I bought the R4-SDHC card (full name R4i-SDHC or something like that) with WiFi. You have to get the CORRECT firmware to use the card you have.

My R4-SDHC card actually had the website printed right on it. It is www.r4i-sdhc.com. There, I downloaded THEIR firmware for the card they manufactured. You extract the file and put it in the ROOT (lowest) directory of your R4 card. It should have 4 files/folders (mine did anyways). Mine had 3 folders called:
- moonmemo
- moonshl2
- R4iMenu
and a file called:
- R4.dat

I put those in the root directory - manually created a Games folder in the root as well and dropped my extracted (will have a .nds filename) games into the Games folder... started it up and voila!

Make sure you tap GAMES to get it to run, not the bouncy ball - you'll get a WiFi error if you haven't configured it yet.

Hope that helps.

when you say you put the

when you say you put the games in the root directory what does this mean?

HELP! R4 files suddenly don't show on comp..but says it's full

I had loaded a bunch of new games onto my R4, and tested them out, they worked fine. I turned off the DS and turned it back on again, to select a different game. Suddenly the message "Can't find _DS_MENU.DAT" appears onscreen, and I can't do anything! So then I turned off the DS and plugged in the Micro SD card to see what was up...and NOTHING appears in the files on the card. Nothing! I figured it somehow got wiped, so when I tried to drag and drop new games in, it says "insufficient space." So are all the files still there, somehow, just hiding?

How do I fix this? It was working FINE just minutes ago!

The only thing I can think of is that the Alice and Wonderland game I had opened on the DS to test was a virus or something? But the menu and gameplay screen had popped up fine before I turned off the DS, so I dunno...

THE SAME THING HAPPENED TOO

THE SAME THING HAPPENED TOO ME DID YOU GET YOURS FIXED!? if you did can you tell me how because this isn't my ds i'm borrowing it from a friend so i kind of don't wanna tell them that i wiped their sd card....

DS roms won't load (says Load Halted or something)

Hey, I've browsed through the questions and comments and haven't seen anything applicable to my problem so far. I just got the R4 Revolution thing, and managed to find the right firmware. NES, Game Boy and GBC games boot up just fine (after a little tweeking), but when I go to load the DS games, it shows on the top screen that its loading for a while then says basically "Load Halted" or something to that effect. I don't have it with me now so I'm not totally sure of the message it gives. I am pretty happy just being able to play NES and Game Boy games, but obviously the main function is the DS games, so I'm kind of bummed. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

I have this same problem ...

I have this same problem ... did you find an answer? I was so excited i finally got my r4i to work and now bummed again cause the games don't. :-(

I bought my son an R4 sdhc v1.4 and it has and 8gd sd card, and a friend set it up and pre loaded it with 100+ games. So he told me to add games just go to www.romulation.net and download the games and just click and drag into usb its easy. So I did and now ots not working right when I tried to play the game it wouldn't stop loading, but all the other options work just not the games. Then I deleted that file ou hoping it would work and it did the something. I click on something esle and the games are still on the card. HOW CAN I FIX IT????

you have to use up to 4gb

you have to use up to 4gb not 8

You need Winrar to extract

You need Winrar to extract the rar file(the game you downloaded From Romulation) and then you put the Nds file( the file you extracted) To your SD card

Hi, I have a r4i, it worked

Hi, I have a r4i, it worked perfectly for about 4 months, but then when I tryed to get some new games one day, the computer didn't read the file. It said that I had to format the files on the microsd, I didn't mind because I had finished those games, so I started the formatting. It gets really close to 100% then says something like, "Windows was unable to finish the format."
Can anybody help?
btw, I've tryed formatting it in My Computer and in Computer Management and I got the same result in both.

Time

Set Your DS System Date To The 11th Of April

That Should Do It

Hi gemma mine to did anyone

Hi gemma mine to did anyone help!

DS

You can try rolling the date badk on the DS to before the 14th that worked for me. The official site advises that you must update the software from their download site. Cheers.

R4 System Date error

Change the date on your DS to a date before April 14, 2010 as a temporary fix and follow the updates at fixya.com. The Kernel needs to be updated once the problem is fixed with the kernel. I had the same problem and tried this and it worked for the R4 SDHC 4GB card.

System error

You have to change the date in 2009.

Hi, Change the date in your

Hi,

Change the date in your DS to 2009 and you wont have to worry for another year!

System date error

I've just found out the answer. R4 cards seem to have an error that trips when the date goes past 14/4/2010. You just need to set it to some date in the past and it'll work again. We went for 2 years ago...
