Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
New R4 card for Nintendo DS lite keeps getting stuck in the loading screen. Please help
You should check if the R4 card is actually R4 SDHC, because the firmware of R4DS is not compatible with it. If it is SDHC, go to this website http://rs320.rapidshare.com/files/140174805/English-1.21.zip to download the firmware for your card. If there are any roms on it, you should save them somewhere else, for you have to format the card first (do this in windows by going to 'this computer', then right-clicking on the SD card from your R4 and then select 'format'. Warning! Never select 'quick format'! This could do damage). Now your card is completely empty. Copy the files you just downloaded and unzipped to the card (5 files; _system_, moonshl, _DS_MENU.DAT, _DS_MENU.INI and _DS_MSHL.NDS). Now put the SD card in the R4 and it should work properly :) I had the same problem, and I have just solved it *grin*. I hope this was useful.

It could be just a glitch, try taking it out and placing it back in , maybe it just might be damaged inside, try getting another one if you can if that one works it means that the other one that gets stuck on the loading it means its damaged, Hope I helped!

1) have you put all the firmware on? you get this from the r4ds website - without this the card will stick on loading
2) you have got a normal micro sd right? theres a type of sd called sdhc (usually 4gb and above) and the r4 doesnt support it
3) try moving ALL games and non firmware files off the card, if it still doesnt boot ...
4) reformat the card and reload the firmware
failing all that your r4 might be faulty. keep trying, they are a pain but its worth it
