If that isn't there, I don't think you installed the firmware right.

_DS_MENU.SYS hasn't been created.

to defragment right click the icon of the card in "My Computer" goto Properties then tools and then select defrag.

do you have the firmware in place right?
_DS_MENU.DAT goes to root
_DS_MSHL.NDS goes to root

folder named _system_ goes to root-
what goes in _system is, cheat files "CHEAT.DAT" and "usrcheat.dat"
folders- EBOOK and THEMES

and thats it mostly

if that doesn't work then you might need a replacement

DO NOT DEFRAG YOUR CARD!!!

a flash card only has so many read/write times. to defrag you need to find a flash drive defrager. if you defrag with your harddrives normal defraging program, it could cut your cards life in half.

hey guys ive found the problem

ok its a firmware problem

its all about the R4 to M3 hacks

when u tried all the firmwares (Chinese and English )
then try the M3 firmwares that could work

the chips r design to stop M3 firmware from working on R4 so when it does happen

the error shows ups

the chip has a loose connection (crappy soldering especially the eng one)

once thats fix its all good ( could fix it yourself but just return it. the wire is about the size of your hair )

problem solve !!!

( sorry about the English chinese Kiwi lol )
