Thats because the new DSi has a new firmware that stops old flash carts from working. Although a flashcart is gonna be released soon that does work in the DSi

I just got a new ds lite and had a r4 card before. in my old ds it works fine but when i insert it into my ds lite it comes up with the ds menu and says insert game? WTF? HELP!!


If you bought a DSi w/ the camera the R4DS will NOT work. And you have to get a Gold R4DS-i to be compatible w/ the new DSi 1.4 firmware. Even if you bought a new one it is possible the new DS has updated firmware to prevent the use of the R4.

It is possible that your R4 needs to be updated to a newer version. I would start there first.

R4 card getting stuck at "loading"


it is probably because your sister has a different version of R4. They are the same things, but your sister might have an earlier version than you do. This is because, some versions dont work with some ds lites while others do.

New Ds lite doesn't start after using R4 card


Me thinks you have the wrong R4 software installed on the chip....

I've done a few of these and all worked fine,,,, even a R4 III which was a tricky little number...... if it is the R4 III - i went for the older software and it worked,,,,, the new version failed on me.

I'll report back here in 30 mins....

2nd R4 Card doesn't work


Hello there,

The original R4v2 card only accepts up to 2GB Micro-SD cards, while subsequent R4 SDHC and R4v3 cards will accept 4GB cards and higher. It's likely that you didn't purchase the same type of card the second time around.

If you are looking for a reliable place to buy DS and DSi cards fromthat will stock originals, I'd recommend using http://www.NDS-Gear.com(I've used them myself). They test every card before sending whichmeans you won't receive dud cards, and more importantly they havesupport before AND after your purchase by people who reply very quicklyand in perfect English. Some of these dodgy websites take 4-6 weeks todeliver and never answer e-mails, so I'm glad these guys are different.Oh, and they guarantee to dispatch by the next working day, whichalways helps with speed and all. And they're recommended by a lot ofthe DS card help sites, too.

Good luck!

Ds does not recognise R4


Try eject, blow into the port then reinsert. There is a possibility that your ds has blocked the r4 from being used on that ds.
