    Well, do you have a Dsmenu.dat on the micro sd card inside the r4 card?

    While he is posting about a Ds flashcard he is asking it for using it on his 3ds which makes the 3ds subforum a good choice.

    @OP, so the 3ds does recognise the flashcard and when you press to start it, it errors out or what?

    OP said the cart is recognized and loads but it can't find the dsmenu.dat.

    Do they have .nds extensions? Also a possible sign of a faulty SD.

    Probably faulty SD since both have .nds

    Also make sure they are not inside a hidden folder.

    Some where I put the games on a folder after the games, then just threw the
    .nds to the root folder. But now I can't check since I can't boot emuannd

    i have The R4 sdhc 3DS DSI 2016 dualcore edition, and i have the same error, cant open ds_menu.dat
    I have tried every single kernel available on website and i hope someone could post the right one because i am tired to test all of these.
    And no its not because i have forget to unrar or unzip the file, and not because of the SD, i have tried at least 5 of them from different
    manufacturer and sizes.
    So please if you have this firmware post it.
