    sweet... the first DS only virus! It makes R4's not work! Go Nintendo! Make those virus' to stop R4 users!

    ok, sorry, i had to.

    First, format your card... wipe it clean. Reload the firmware files, and try it again.

    If it's still not working, you have a bad card, and will have to get a new one.

    Firstly, you haven't said whether this Lexar 2gb microsd has worked in your R4 before this current problem.

    I'm going to presume that it's a new SD and you have tried to load the 1.18 firmware & some games. As long as you are confident you have loaded the firmware and placed the .nds rom files on your sd correctly, then perhaps one of two things need to be done:
    1. Format the SD card (make sure you transfer all files off card to your PC first);
    2. SD card is incompatible / not suitable?

    Failing this, another thing you can perhaps try is to copy your frends SD card files onto your SD card. If it works, that would prove they you have done something wrong with the setup of firmware, etc.

    If it is an .exe then it can a be a virus.. and theres no such things as moonshell.exe.. as far as i know..

    ON TOPIC: the SD card might be the culprit.. so try other like sandisk [​IMG]

    I've had bad luck using my Lexar 1GB micro SD with my old R4. It ended dieing...

    Try to format the card and just make sure that you're got the firmware on correctly.
