    Hey,

    I just got an R4 and I can't seem to get the dang thing to work. I've added all the files needed to the micro sd and when starting up the DSLite it doesn't see a cart. Is it a problem with the R4 or something that I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks.

    So you've added all the needed firmware files? What happens when you switch your DS on? are you using a slot 2 card as well? Does your DS have flashme installed? More info please.

    Good questions.

    I have /shell, _DS_MENU.DAT and _DS_MSHL.NDS in the root dir on the microsd card and nothing else.

    When I turn on the DSlite it goes to the health and safety screen and tells me to touch the screen to continue. When I touch the screen or press A it goes to the regular DS startup screen and shows "There is no DS Card inserted." in the DS slot.
    I have nothing in the GBA slot.


    My DS doesn't have Flashme installed (not even sure what that is).

    I hope this helps a bit.

    Thanks by the way for showing an interest in my problem without flaming. You Rock adgloride!!!

    Ok, so I decided to blow in it NES stile a couple more times and thought, maybe I should have a look in there, sure enough a couple of the pins were bent a bit. So I straightened them up and bingo it works.

    Thanks a ton you two. you were both a HUGE help.

    YAY!!!

    lol, well at least it was your idea that made me look in the slot.

    adgloride was a big help as well. I'm so used to just being flamed no matter what I ask. Thanks again.
