    I have done a bit of searching on here and tried allsorts but i still cant get it to work. I install the firmware from the site on the box and it hangs on the loading screen so i tried using the r4syauto and menu instead and it still does the same thing. Can anyone help as im starting to pull my hair out now. I don't think it the card either because i ordered 4 and its doing the same with all of them.

    Sorry was not clear, i tried getting the firmware from the manufacturers site which is http://www.r4sdhc.com but the site was unavailable so i found a mirror site on here which is http://linfoxdomain.com/nintendo/ds/ and downloaded from there with no success.
    I was under the impression that if i installed the r4ysauto instead of the manufacturers firmware it would work but it still keeps freezing.

    Problem solved, after a bit more digging i have found that the sd card needs to be formatted to FAT instead of FAT32

    ^^^Deano, thank you very much! I've spent my entire night going through the same motions as yourself. It did cross my mind at the start that I may of formatted it wrong (I formatted in Fat32) but all the sites I was looking at were saying 32 should be ok so I kept on trying other things until I returned here and seen your post. As simple as the solution sounds I'm very grateful you posted it!

    Anyway, I've regisitered just to say thank you to you for putting an end to my nightmare. Cheers. I can go to bed now!
