you need to download the menu, moonshine and other DAT folders that SHOULD be on the disk provided with the R4 DS?

[SIZE=2]Check the CD, theres a few folders. Read all the manuels on there. That's what I did when I had this problem.[/SIZE]

download this

Put those files in the root of your memory card and then put the memory card in your ds and it should boot.

*it's a self extracting file that contains the latest system files, I made this to send to my friend in Australia who is computer illiterate and he managed to sort it.

http://rs110.rapidshare.com/files/41226921/johnEnglish-1.10.exe

Paste that into your browser, it will take you to rapidshare and you should be able to download the .exe file. Once downloaded 'run' it and it is a self extracting winrar file. extract it al to your memory card, the one that goes in your r4. This will not overwrite your games directory, so don't worry.


Back up the contents of your r4 card first.

Run that and unpack to your computer

Then copy what is inside the 'english110' directory to the root of your memory card

Of course you will have a games directory on there

Sounds like it........have you also tried another MicroSD card to make sure it's not just having problems reading that.
#16
damn lol good point but generally what happens if u stick the r4 card in by itself?

does anything happen at all?

not much you can do but try wiping connection on micro sd card and blow dust out of the R4 could be as simple as that
#21
guys i think ive cracked it like u crack an egg!

good point sy i think its the micro SD

i stick it in the phone and it says memory card inserted but it has an error when trying to format it

and................ when i try move music or photos onto it the memory card option is blanked out!
#22
Can you format it from the pc using the micro sd reader?
#23
yeh lol it read and writes fine via pc and formats fine

Did you format it in FAT32? it wont recognise NTFS
#25
it only allows fat32 or fat lol

thanks for the help so far people rep left!
#26
ummm micro sd cards are really cheap or just double check and even borrow a 64mb or anything just to test if its faulty just contact the merchant you purchased it from.
#27
Yeah if your phone has one try that,and obviously dont try a quick format.

Think it has to be FAT32
#28
im gonna see if anyone of my friends has 1 and go from there

damn i thought this would be 1 easy ride as well

thanks again for help peeps
