    So why can't I get US versions of games to work on my friends chinese R4? I worked out how to get his menu into English, but I can't get games to work at all. I try to load them but get a blank screen.

    What's the deal?

    when you say "games", do you mean legit games?
    coz my friend has a chinese DS, and both my R4 and legit games worked fine

    Chinese ds's are different and are called iQue
    normal games wont run at all
    sorry i cant give more info
    check wikipedia

    also, i think that the supercard patch software has an option available for ique ds's
    wether it just patches a game differently or it needs to be a iQue game before i dont know
    im not 100% sure though

    Not sure what you mean by "legit". The games are ROMs, and they work on my R4. But on his R4, they fail. The games he already had on there, the ones with names in Asian characters, work fine on his R4. It's just hte new ones that don't.

    Thanks xcalibur798, but I meant to write R4, not DS.

    You are not to say where you got ROMs from here. Edit your post quickly.

    Oh right! Thanks. I only meant to be precise, not rule-breaking.
