    Hey guyzz..


    Today I was dumping some games on my ds. Accidentally I dropped the r4ds on the floor.

    Now whenever I put the r4ds in the ds and switch it on it gets stuck at the loading screen.

    Please tell me it's a problem which can be solved by reformatting the miscorSD!!

    or any suggestions to actually try to repair it..


    I am literally crying here!! I am so sad [​IMG]

    It shouldn't break if you only dropped the R4. They dont break that easily. Try formatting. I have also found if you disassemble electronics and then assemble it again, it works.

    Backup and format your Micro SD Card or/and Clean the contacts of the Nintendo DS and the R4DS

    Why?

    Oh.. man

    I will try these things u guyz suggested..
    Actually this is the first time I dropped the r4ds. I usually am pretty careful.

    Worst case scenario!
    my birthday is coming up. Maybe will buy cyclo. I prefer to buy a r4 coz deal extreme is shipping free and also it is available there. Cyclo is not available in dealextreme. I stay in India.

    Think of the shipping charges!!

    I think he means with the DS or anything other electronics(usually beacause they are ALOT harder to open up). To open an R4 all you need to do is unscrew a tiny screw though

    Ok..

    I reformatted the card. Blowed it out etc!!!

    Still it was getting stuck at the loading screen!!

    So then I tried being a smart ass about it and actually removed the screw and disassembled it.. I didn't find anything wrong.

    Then a small chip like thing which was glued to board broke of..

    Well now it's definitely screwed I guess.

    Lesson of the story!!

    Don't unscrew the r4 unless there is absolutely something wrong with it and Be EXTREMELY CAREFUL when handling it!!

    Do you have a camera? Can you take a pic of what fell of. Because, I think an SMD resistor or cap has just fallen of. They are relatively easy to solder back on. If it is the IC however, thats a whole other story.....

    You started it. Get the fuck out of the R4 DS forum if you are just going to convert people to other Flash Cards, we don't want you here.
