THAT IS WEIRD PROBLEM
DID YOU REINSTALL 1.18?
DO YOU HAVE A CLONE
A CLONE SHOULDN'T AFFECT IT. THAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANY TYPE OF FIRMWARE ON IT.
LOOK ON THE BOX. IT SHOULD SAY A WEBSITE. DOWNLOAD AND PUT THE FILES INSIDE OF THE ZIP FILE ONTO YOUR MSD CARD!

Was it working correctly previously?

I'd agree with the others. Simply clear your SD card (copying over the games and save files) and simply reinstall all of the most recent software.

If your stuck just follow the instructions on the CD.

This is the biggest problem with "R4" these days. There are so many clones it can be difficult to determine if the one you have is a clone or not.

Most likely, you either didn't put ALL the necessary files on the card, or you are trying to use the official firmware on a clone, which won't work.

Do you still have the box the R4 came in? What URL did it say to go to for firmware on the box? Can you take a pic of the front of the box and let us see it? We may be able to determine what firmware you actually need to use to get it to work for you.

Well download R4 version 1.18 and stick it onto your SD card

It should have the following folders:

'_system_'
''moonshl'

and 2 files:

_DS_MENU
_DS_MOONSHL.NDS

Hope that helps. You do know that the card won't work unless you install the software right? Also it should have had a CD in the package.
