Hi all,

I recently purchased a r4DS for my nintendo ds lite.

When i put the 2GB micro SD with games on it, it worked perfectly.
Then a few days ago i went to play a game and it worked as it usually would. I selected the 2 little faces for the games menu but i was greeted by a black screen up the top and a blank wallpaper down the bottom with no options.

If anybody knows what is wrong and how i can fix the problem please help me. I don't think it is the SD card or the r4 card as they are basically brand new.

You said "The two little faces?" Sounds like the games icon for the default firmware and skin.
My guess is you're using the old R4DS 1.18 firmware, which is bad.

You should install the replacement firmware called Wood R4 right away, it is much better.

Not only will more games be playable, but the interface will be much better.

It's possible you have a corrupted theme menu. If you haven't played it since November 1st and you haven't changed the auto-month theme change.. it's possible the November theme is missing or corrupted. And depending if you have an Original R4 Cart.. you should also try WoodR4 1.16 as your system.

Fixed. I'm sorry, but that was just annoying.

It isn't working because when i download it a folder isn't but a file that can not be opened is downloaded. I assume this is not supposed to happen.

Does anyone know another way to fix the problem? I think this way would work but i can't download it correctly so there isn't much i can do.
