DS Card Software Downloads

So you have bought your R4DS Card but you can not get it to work. The main culprit for this problem is that you have not realised that you need to find and download the software that is required before your device will work. Basically your Nintendo DS Card is shipped withoput its operating system. We think this is due to legal reasons but worry not because the process is really quite simple and we have outlined exactly what you need to do to get your R4DS Card working, or your DSTT or M3DSReal for that matter, on our how to page which can be found by clicking on the menu item above for the card that you own or intend to buy.

To make your life easier we have found all the latest versions of the various kernel software required to make your R4DS, or other DS Card of choice, work for you. Please choose the correct download for your particular card and install to your micro sd card. Check the readme files contained in the downloads for the correct place to put the files. Usually though you just unzip these files to your PC and then copy the entire contents of the extracted files to the root of the micro sd card.

NOTE: There are various versions of the SDHC cards - Seemingly made by different factories. They each require there own version of the software so make sure you download the right version for your card. We have three listed below, the original one is first. If there is no mention of the word upgrade or version III then this is most likely the one you need. However if you get issues try them all. Bear in mind that this list is not extensive and there are other SDHC versions out there too :S
