    Hey, I purchaced this exact R4 card http://nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=490 for Christmas for my son and I can't work out for the life of me how to get it running. I have downloaded the correct Kernal that I found on the official site http://www.r4isdhc.com/2014-r4isdhc-gold-pro/ which is this one. I then extracted the files to a formatted 2gb micro sd card and dropped the nds games on the micro sd card as well. But when I turn on the DS lite it goes to the DS lites main menu. Above pictochat and DS download play it says a game called 'Touch! Bomberman Land Nintendo' is inserted (I haven't even put this game on the micro sd card?) If I then click on that it simply takes me to a white screen or just a screen saying 'menu?'.

    I'm really not sure what I've missed and can't seem to find any tutorial on how to set it up. If anyone can help me out here I would be really grateful! I haven't got long left and my son really wants this! Thanks!

    You can try formatting your microSD with the Panasonic formatter (do a full format with size adjustment set to 'on' in the options)

    https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/

    Make sure you place the kernel files/folders on the root of your microSD and not in any other folders.

    I have the same problem and I just buy an 4GB microSD HC card. For me, it is the solution.

    If you can try it, and tell me.

    Hey guys, I did manage to get it it to work. You need to format the sd card fully with FAT 32. Any other problems just ask!
