    Hello

    This may be confusing but my ds is kinda broken when I put a game card into my ds it doesn't recognize that its in there
    One day i discovered that if I launch a game from my action replay it works but I wanna use my R4 on my ds so is there a way to make my action replay think its a game or something

    Cheers

    You can't launch games with an action replay.

    I don't really understand your question.

    You put the action replay in your ds says insert game card
    You take out action replay insert game card eg. Mario Kart
    You press start and it loads the game

    You can't launch flashcarts through AR. It's not possible.

    The last time I tried this, the action replay did not recognize the card and it did nothing. So I am pretty sure it's not going to work.

    I don't understand. You have a R4 and a DS Lite, by default you will be able to run it directly.

    If your DS does not recognize it, try using paper tricks.

    I'd say: Re-download firmware for you NDS. It's either that, or come up with replacing firmware. You can try to replace the R4 software with Ysmenu through Ysmenu Generator in Filetrip. It'll boot r4 card diffrent then the normal deal.

    Or the contact pins are dirty and mabey they need cleaning, idk.

    Dude, that won't work if the DS doesn't recognize the R4 at all. And you're talking about DSi, not DS. But R4 doesnt work on DSi and if you update firmware you're fucked with alot of flashcards!
    @OP: Sometimes, blowing on the cart and slot-1 a few times will work [​IMG]
