    Hey guys :)

    i bought the R4i Gold Plus Deluxe Edition FLashCart!


    Firmware is updated to Deluxe v1.7

    and kernel is currently v2.5


    however, some DS games aren't always working correctly.

    while they do work correctly on my PC using DS emulators,

    sometimes, when i try to launch a game, example, SUPERMAN.ds

    there's a black screen saying something like "File Save Not Found..."

    and i have to reboot my DS Console and try to re-load the game multiple times

    before it actually starts to play!

    is there something to fix this issue?

    is there an option i need to turn ON so i dont get that "File Save Not Found..." screen?

    is does that on other DS games too. not just Superman...


    thanks :)

    There is no option that you have on causing this error. Most likely it's file fragmentation, so it's time to backup and reformat your micro sd card. For the record, what brand, size, etc... are you using?

    If this doesn't solve your problem it could potentially be your roms.

    eskro, are your games named alphabetically? I have mentioned this bug a couple of times in regard to the R4i Gold Plus firmware but if you have lots of roms on your microSD card and they are all named alphabetically you will get that error on many games. For example your rom named "Superman Returns.nds" might not load but if you rename it to "0708 Superman Returns.nds" it will. Try putting numbers at the beginning of the rom name and see if it works.

    wow joesmith, good catch :P

    if i run into another game like that,

    i'll definitely try to add numbers at the beginning!

    could be it!

    to: 0367 - Metroid Prime Hunters .nds



    thanks :)

    Right. The "R4i Deluxe" is a different cart.
