    /_system_
    /shell
    /_DS_MSHL.nds
    /_DS_MENU.dat
    /_DS_MENU.sys

    Try reformating the card. I had the same issue. After a format, everything loaded up fine. FYI I formatted in Fat16.

    1.0 works for you? I've tried all three and none work...

    Seems lots of people are getting stuck at the "loading" screen after updating their R4 to 1.6final or their m3 simply to 1.2.

    I've got it, and my microsd card is no longer being recognised in my pc either - waiting for a new one to come to see if my r4 is still working (I'll be using 1.6beta though).

    hi..

    1. Format your SD card to FAT16 (put a name on it)
    2. Rename your files as follow


    /roms
    /_system_
    /shell
    /_DS_MSHL.NDS
    /_DS_MENU.DAT

    Note the upper case in the extension, that fixed the problem for me [​IMG]

    enjoy

    Well, got a new card and it's working fine.

    First time I've heard of the R4 itself corrupting a MicroSD card (rather than the reader)..

    oh well..
