    I just got my R4DS and it seem to not work. All I get is the loading screen.

    What kind of MicroSD are you using?

    Blow inside the microSD slot and make sure all contacts are rid of dust.

    Even when I dont have my microSD in the R4 DS is still say loading. I had 4 other R4 DS and all them worked fine.

    I am positive this means your R4 is defective.

    Get a refund or exchange it for a new one.

    Over there.
    When you don't have an SD in the R4, it should say SD/TF card not found. IT only stays on Loading if your Micro SD isn't in all the way.

    First , Try another microsd card if you can
    Second , Try blowing inside the DS the Cart and the MicroSD
    Third , Try getting all the files out of the MicroSD and putting them agian
    Fourth , Check if you have the kernel files inside , And if they have a fixed size
    Fifth , Don't put anything on the microSD , Put it inside the R4DS , open DS , let it open whatever it shows(error probably) , Close the DS , Put kernel folder ONLY on the R4DS AND DONT DELETE ANYTHING!


    Thats the best possibiltys I wouldve done if my R4 wouldn't of worked.

    You said you have 4 R4DS. if so, get one of the ones that works. Take its MicroSD card out, and put it in the one that doesn't work. if it works, you have a defective MicrosSD. format that card and try again. If it still doesn't work w/ that other microsd card, something is wrong w/ the R4. You can try to open it, look for anything wrong. maybe the spring is stuck, making it think the microsd is stuck. I'd just ask for a refund.

    Open the cart and make sure no components are loose and/or badly soldered.
