    Hey guys, can't seem to find solution to this anywhere;

    I have a red DS - actually a friend's - that wont load the R4 up - says there's nothing in the slot. The DS was working fine with the R4 until a couple of weeks ago when it suddenly stopped working with no other apparent problems.

    I have tried updating / reformatting the card.

    Commercial carts work fine.

    Anyone experienced this or know what might have caused it?

    Thanks in advance.

    I think this your problem. It appears the contacts on your R4 don't connect properly to the DS contacts, which causes the DS of course to think nothing is there since it doesn't recognize a connection.
    Here's a solution that has helped many people with this problem.
