Hello I have recently acquired an R4. Long story short; it's not working. I'm only greeted with a black screen when the DS turns on. I've tried other methods such as differant formats, different kernals and none seem to work. I don't know what kind of card it is but it says on the cover:
R4
SDHC
Revolution for DS
(NDSL/NDS)

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

1) When the r4 is inserted into the DS, does a game icon appear in the home menu?

2) If you just insert the r4 without the microSD, do you always get a black screen?

I'm afraid it might be faulty, or have a contact problem between pins.

Try reopening another thread in the "NDS - Flashcarts and Accessories" section on the main page, not under r4, because it is more visible there and other users will be able to answer you.:)
