    whats the game you are trying to play?
    some games are built with piracy protection (you need bypass code)
    download it from cheats.gbatemp.net

    some games like KH need patch~~! just use gbatemp search function for it

    Pokemon and New Super Mario Bros should work on most firmwares and as Elixer Dreams and yeahitschris commented before Kingdom hearts needs to be patched in order to work. So it seems like it could be the hardware or firmware at fault. This problem could be anything ranging from a faulty micro sd card/R4 cartridge to a connection/contact fault from the micro sd to the r4 cartridge or R4 to DS.

    What firmware are you using? Have you put all the correct folders and files on the disc?
    What make and size of micro SD card are you using? Some bigger sizes don't work well with the R4.

    Try a different microsd card (1/2gb) and see if the problem continues with the games that currently work on your R4 cartridge. If the problem persists then its probably the R4 cartridge at fault.
