    Hi
    I recently bought a NintendoDS Lite that came with a NinjaDS flash cart, but it came with no microSD card. I plugged in a 4GB one formatted in FAT16 and added a few NDS files, photos (JPG) and MP3s to the card's root, but when I run the launcher, it gives me the following message "ERROR: no SD/CF card found". I tried formatting the microSD card to FAT32, but the same problem came back. I used another microSD card, but to no avail. I searched online for a solution, but could not find any. When I download the NinjaDS firmware 1.03 and copy it to the root of the microSD card, the launcher would not detect it, even if I pressed (and held) the L+R buttons when booting.
    My questions:
    1. Do I need to have specific launcher files on my microSD card so that the flash cart can properly work?
    2. Is there a proper folder structure that I need to use in order for the launcher to detect my files?
    3. Can NinjaDS detect 4GB (or larger) microSD cards or do I have to use smaller sizes?
    Appreciate your help, as the NinjaDS website is no longer functional.
    Regards

    A card with 2GB or less might work.

    Thank you, Technicmaster0. I will look for a 2GB card. Do I need to add any (system) files to the card aside from the NDS/JPG/MP3 ones? Is there a certain folder structure that I need to use/follow?

    Hello Sora. Do you happen to know where I can find the kernel files? I searched for them a lot, but I could only find the update file.

    Thanks for the link, Plstic. I went earlier to this site and downloaded the corresponding firmware, but I am unable to enter into update mode (L+R while booting). Are there system files instead of a firmware update that are needed?
