    I have had my R4 for quite awhile but recently during any game that I try to play, sometime during play the game would freeze. This has happened on many different games, such as Pokemon and now recently DQM:J. This has happened on other games, just more frequently on these(probably cause I was playing them more [​IMG] ). Anyways what could be the problem?

    Update your Firmware to v1.11

    This happened to me when I was playing Age of Empires. The game just suddenly froze up and something started emitting strange buzzing sounds; I think it was the DS itself.

    I'm using firmware 1.11, so I don't suppose that can be the problem. Any ideas anyone?

    Can happen when the R4 loses contact slightly with the pins in the DS. Try making the R4 more snug of a fit by taping some paper or thin card to the front of the unit over the label so it pushes it on to the pins more.

    Well I only experienced this strange thing: After my DS lite battery died on me while I was playing Pokemon Ranger (and before I could save because I just started it), whenever I tried playing it I couldn't see my character or any other people in the game. I was able to play normally after overwriting the game file with the one I had on my HD.

    And my little brother mentioned something about a strange buzzing kind of noise after a soft reset.
