Hey,

I have been using an original R4 for a few years, with a 1GB Kingston MicroSD card. Has been working 100% for a long time. Today I followed this tutorial. After I was done I loaded it up into my launch model DS, and got SD/TF Card Error. So I format the card, load it up again and the same error. Format again, put the old R4 firmware on there and got the same error.

The SD card is perfectly readable in the computer and other devices, so I'm guessing my R4 is just dead? Is there something I'm missing here?

Thanks.

Hmm, seems to be working with the SanDisk card out of my camera, guess I'll just swap em around and hope the camera will work. Thanks!

If you have heard of the paper trick. try that but in the sd slot!
If you have not, what you do is, insert the micro sd, then get a small bit of paper.
and slide it throught the gaoe at the front a little way down.
Just did it on a ttds (SDHC). and it fixed it.

Wait you mentioned that it stopped working after you followed the guide. Did the guide tell you to download anything? (I'm too lazy to check) If yes, try removing what you added then check.

    The eBay listing said that it won't read discs, but it actually does although FMV is laggy as well as CDDA. So it most definitely needs re-calibrating.

    Why it took so long is because I've been on Discord throughout my life, but have met a lot of toxic people on there and was always treated a lot like shit.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    @cearp,
    Thank you so much! :)

    @DinohScene,
    I know right. I did originally have an account here on GBATemp back in 2021, hardly ever used it so I ended up deleting it.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Reason was because of Discord, was so attached to it that it affected my mental health really bad.

    I'm much better and I am so happy to be with this community.

    discord is just a bit weird, all separate things merged into one. a discord server can't really replace an actual site like this
