    Hi, i recently bought a R4 and i followed instructions on the R4 website on how to update the firmware and how to upload games (I just drag and drop the game .nds file right?). When i try to load the game all i get is a white screen. Would you guys happen to know what i am doing wrong or if the R4 is faulty. Thanks!

    It could possibly be a Bad ROM dump. Try another source for your ROMS.

    It would be strange if it was happening to all the ROMs you tried. Try another site like the person above said

    If I was you I would delete that ROM site out of your post because you will probably get banned for it. Those games don't usually have problems, it could be your memory card [​IMG]

    Did you trim the ROMS?. They might have been trimmed badly.

    You shouldn't need to format the card to FAT32 unless it's over 2GB in capacity. I think it would help if you switched it to FAT(16) 64K clusters.
