First, what is your 3ds firmware version, R4 model and CFW(including its version)
Also, what FW are you using on your r4, are you using any r4 launcher?
Also, have you ever patched your TWL firm?

Does the game cart icon appears when you insert the r4 cart? If no then make sure you have proper files (some folders and dat files) added to micro sd card from their site as well. An empty micro sd card with just .nds files won't work. Also the micro sd card should be formatted as FAT32.

AFAIK the Luma 3DS CFW patches the TWL firm directly without actually modifying any files. If you had previously had TWL patched using some guide then probably that is causing issue.

How do I know the firmware? And I think I did I got the agb and twl .cia to patch it
oh.
so that's the reason it doesn't work.
follow this steps here to unpatch it, as patched twl firm will give a conflict and refuse to work with your card
https://github.com/AuroraWright/Lum...stalled-a-patched-agbtwl-firm-cia-in-the-past
it should work then

Try some other games. DS games are not region locked. Sonic Rush for eg. is small size game, give that a try. I'm sure you know that 3ds games don't work on ds flashcarts like r4 you have.

Sorry for ask this question here.

But i dont wanna start a new thread.

I have a R4 Gold Pro 2016.

Its comes 8Gb and 200 games ( 3.63Gib ).

Games workd and load verywell.

But i got a regular microsd 16gb and copied files and games wont work.

Its says savfile not founded reset system etc.

So the .nds games are inside a folder. Same as the original 8gb that comes with.

So if i move all the games to root of 16gb card. nds games works.

But why its works inside folder of 8gb card and refuse to works inside same folder files etc that copied from 8gb to 16gb.

Well here funny history.

I got a 16gb microsd ultra and did same test. And works well doesn't matter inside folder or not.

Some details its both 16gb microsd and 16gb microsd ultra are 32K formated.

But I tested both with default and 16k 8k etc. Same result.

So i did another test. I formated 8gb original card comes with r4 and copied files backp. Now its refuse to works inside a folder.

I did a lot of test that give me many results. But its funny fact. I dont know really what make savfile not founded. But i know a lot of solutions

Like.
nds file in root sd card
Short names and no upercase letter
Ultra microsd vs regular microsd.

Well anyone have a clear answer for this matter?

Everything its working. Just how its works botter me.


Sorry for bad english.

First of all, your English is good.
It could be that the r4 firmware is outdated and that it doesn't correctly support more than 8GB card maybe because they never tested it. Chinese branded ds flashcarts (ironically they are not original R4 company yet name all R4 with extra works like Gold, Silver, etc) are just one time manufacturing tested with no promises on updates to bug fixes. They make, they sell, done.
