hi, so i bought a r4 revolution card and the guy put some software on it for me which should be ok. i also got a disc with some games on it which are zipped files.

i cannot get any games to play and the ds just sticks at the loading screen.

i have tried to search for an answer online but no luck., i may be doing something wrong with the game files but not sure,

#3
right have u got zipped files on ur computer if so right click on 1 of them go unzip it
#4
ok done that, it now leaves a file ending with .nds
#5

banned#7
yes it is only the .nds file you need to copy over
#8
has it worked
#9
still just shows at loading screen
#10
assuming you see the R4 spash screen.. when the ds loads select the left most icon (i think its a pac man logo), from there can you browse the card to select the game?

have you got the updated firmware on it, is this just happening with one game or all, if all it is the software or you arent putting them on correctly, if it is one game it could be a dodgy game or needs updating

is it for all games? have you tried to download one yourself? how many games do you have on R4 and what memory card do you have?
#14
its any game i try to put on, i only have one ata time at the moment as im trying to just get it working. i did try to download one but it just does the same.

i have tried with 2 different memory cards, one is 1gb and one is 4gb

then it sounds like either the firware or a dodgy card, where was it purchsed, it isnt an old R4 is it as they would only accpet 2GB cards and think they had to be non sdhc, and you have definately unzipped and just put on the .nds file

where did you purchase it from? put your card inot comp and see what firmware it has on it, so if you have tried with 2 different card then you obviouslt copied firmware from one card to other
#18
yes i did copy from one card to the other, jus thought i might have had the r4 that couldnt handle a 4gb card.

i purchased it from a site that also has a market stall near my mates not sure if i would get into trouble for saying the site.

i have put it into pc but cant see where it says what firmware i have

its been a long time since we had the R4 so cant remember the interface of it, i know the dstt has games folder and you have to put them in the game folder, but cant remember if the R4, all i can suggest if you have a spare card is format it and download the software from the R4 site and go from there, you may just have a dodgy card, otherwise contact the place you got it from
#20
ill give it a try, thanks
banned#21
good luck, sorry i cant help anymore but like i said its been a long time since i had the R4 and cant remember its ways, hope you sort it
