Nintendo DS / R4 Card Help

12 replies
Found 1st Feb 2010
I recently bought my little sister an R4 card for her DS Lite. A friend burned me a DVD with about 30 games on.

I put a 2GB micro SD card into the R4 card, plugged the R4 card into the PC. I copied the DVD onto my desktop, then copied/pasted the games onto the R4 card.

When I put the R4 card into the DS, it just states "LOADING..." on a Black screen (top screen).

I've probably shown I'm not great with technology. Just wondering if anyone knows where I've gone wrong ? Any help appreciated...
