Yup, not even without micro SD inside the R4. Could it be the R4 is fake? any suggestion where should I buy one? I bought it from Tecknet, Amazon

uh oh sounds fatal, I've not heard of any fakes about. I got one from consoleup just this week for a mate, I've had one for about a year without anyprobs.

Cost £26.98(inclusive of £2.99 shipping) it arrived inside of a couple of days, if your after any extra 2gb micro sd, play is doing them for £5.99 too.

Bit of a sod for you to have to buy another R4DS - but I suppose they are worth there weight in gold if you get what I mean;-)

R4DS from consoleup

BTW I was also gonna say theres no software with the new editions, I had the latest files already downloaded from R4DS.com, so it was easy to just drag and drop onto the root. So make sure you have access to the relevant files.

LMK if any other probs

Also make sure you don't end up with a memory card bundle - they charge an arm and a bloody leg for a 2GB micro sd card - the cheeky sods!

Yep thats the one I updated to last week, btw inside of 2 days ?!?! where did you get your R4DS from?
#9
I have had 4 R4DS's now, each one I have passed on to either relative or friends so I'm on my 4th currently, no-one has had any probs with them.

got it from amazon, but the seller is Tecknet only £12.49 with postage £4.49. I guess it's a fake one, even the CD that they gave me contains nothing other than manual and there is no R4 logo on the CD
.
I have heard that there is fake R4 lying around now, have to be really carefull, but still ended up
with one :x

did you get 4 of them from consoleup? I might be getting one from there if you haven't had any
problem with them all
can you use 1GB with R4 or is the limit 2GB? thanks
#11
yeah all 4 have been via console up - limit is 2GB- get about 30-40 'games' on there that way:thumbsup:

You need to find out your rights, they should be refunding the postage as far as I am aware if the item is faulty.

You can get an R4 (Old and outdated) from dealextreme for around half the price you paid.

#14

Does that mean if I use 1GB micro it won't work? would it be that's the reason it stuck on Loading..page?

Btw, is Sandisk micro compatible or does it have to be Kingston
#16
had same prob with a r4 i got for a friend, seller said it must be somethin im doing wrong as he has NEVER seen a faulty r4 yet. Turns out he was wrong and agreed it was faulty when i sent him it back

Btw, is Sandisk micro compatible or does it have to be Kingston

Thats what i was thinking at 1st but its faulty mate. Any card should work
#17
it seems like no other way, i have to sent it back and buy a new one, is R4 actually any good, it seems like have quite a lot of stuck in loading.. problems. any recommend other than R4? or is R4 is the best? any input welcome, thanks.

Nah any size 2GB - or under will work, should work fine with any decent brand micro sd card.

If you put the R4DS cart in without a micro sd card in it's slot, it should dislplay "couldn't find the SD/TF card" on a black background.
#19
I've just received email from Tecknet, whom I bought the R4 from. They said I have to download the latest kernel which is V1.19 as their R4 is the newest one.

I thought V1.18 is the latest. anyway, I've done it, and it works..:-D yeah...

Finally, it's a good thing I haven't ordered a new one .

I have faith in my R4DS, otherwise I wouldn't have ordered 4 by now, I'm extremely pleased with it's performance, menu style and operation, ease of transfer - and all it's features are really solid such as it's sleep feature which works great - and also the 4 variable brightness settings which is in built.

The moonshell media feature is good too, a pretty decent mp3 player built in - a little bit confusing (and ugly) at times but works a treat once your used to it - I never use video btw, the screen is just not upto it so it's a waste of your time bothering.

Have you used any other DS cards or R4DS before?

Got exactly the same problem and have to send it back too...what postage source are you using to return?? This is my 4th card from dealextreme, no probs with others and i have tried swapping memory cards/DS's with the DSTT card so i know that it is faulty.

Regarding R4 fakes : Seems there are certainly some fakes doing the rounds at the moment.
Have a look at this announcement from the R4 team : http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=93537

It's translated (badly, as usual) from Japanese, but you get the idea....


Regarding people with DSTT freezing problems when trying to load a game : Did you make a new folder on your DSTT called "Games" or (similar) and put all your games inside that folder, or did you put them directly onto the root of your DSTT ?

If you put them on the root then that's probably why you're having the freezing problem.
See my post here for further info (first post at the top of the page) : http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1579054#post1579054

Edit : I think the DSTT problem mentioned on this thread might be different from the "game freezing while loading" one I described above, in which case you may have a faulty card.
Thought it was worth mentioning though, just in case.
#23
Just a quick q for all of you out there with a R4 card - is there a reset button on the DS or do you need to switch it off and on each time you want to change games. Thanks
#24
Can anyone help me- does this look like an okay card to buy? It's good good reviews but I'm not very good at tecchie things! Cheers

They are good cards, but the Micro SD card sticks out a fraction, not anything major, but a little annoying.

Thanks for you help, that sounds like it'd be okay- it wouldn't affect game play though would it?

No it's purely cosmetic.

That doesn't bother me so I think I'll go for this one. Thanks for your advice.
