How to load a ROM with the R4DS

I’ve seen people ask and have even been asked myself how to load a ROM on the R4DS.

As my previous R4DS video showed, it’s just a case of dragging and dropping files onto the SD card, putting it in the R4 cart and loading it up in the DS. I’ve made another vid to show how easy it is to load up a ROM, if there are any other questions about it (which there shouldn’t be really, both videos pretty much cover everything), then feel free to ask.

  1. Hi. I have tried to do everything you have said in your videos. but I am still having problems. When I try to run a game the DS tells me that the file will not operate. Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong? I have tried taking everything offf the SD card and putting it back on yet no luck

  2. As long as the file is .nds and you have the latest kernel version from the R4DS site, it should work.

    Another solution is that it may need patching. Get the ‘Win32 GUI’ DLDI patcher from here, extract into a folder and run dlditool32.exe, locate the .nds file and patch it.

    If that doesn’t work, I’m not sure what could be wrong…

  3. i need help mine just says loading ive tried turning on and off also formatting sd chip and all of latest firmware please help
