    My friend bought a N-Card and she is having problems using it now. So she asked me to help her with it but I am having the time of my life trying to figure this N-Card out. (I use a R4 card)

    First it has a card that goes into the slot-1 and a second card that goes into slot-2 which has a USB port.

    When I connect the DS to the computer via USB, and turn on the DS it goes straight to the DS main menu screen with the clock and calander. Underneath I see it says 'There is a DS Option Pak inserted'. However, I cannot select it to get into the card. How am I suppose to access the card to upgrade the firmware and add roms onto it? Or is it just not that simple?

    You gave up way too quickly. Shame on you! All you need to do is start the slot1 cart while everything is connected, and it'll give you the option to boot into USB mode.

    Read this FAQ thread for any further info on upgrading firmware and such:

    ....really? Wow...just...wow.

    Ok, I'll try to explain it even more simple.

    1. Connect everything to everything (DS cart, GBA cart, PC usb)
    2. Start your DS
    3. Start your n-card DS game cartridge just like you would start a regular game (this would be a simple matter of pressing the A button)
    4. Assuming everything is connected properly (see step 1) you will now see a menu where you have to choose "USB mode" (again, a simple matter of pressing A)

    So yes, everything you had to do was connect everything and press A a couple of times ~_~

    Is there suppose to be something in the slot-1 when the card is in the DS. Because there is nothing to boot! I feel so retarded I can't figure this out.

    Remember when I said this?

    ...

    ...

    Ok, now here's a question I think you can answer:
    Do you think when I said "everything", that this included "a card that goes into the slot-1"? (hint: YES!)

    After answering that question, read my 4 steps again.

    Well that's your problem then. Try cleaning the contacts, and try using the cartridge in a different DS. Regardless of whether you've put data on the slot-1 cartridge or not, it should at least boot. If you can't get it to boot after trying this, then there's a hardware problem with your slot-1 card. You should return it and get a replacement.
