2nd R4 Card doesn't work

Recently purchased R4 card and it came with a 4GB sd card. It works perfect! Puchased a second R4 card and 4 GB card for daughters DS, this second R4 card will not work with either of the 4GB sd cards and in niether of the DS's. But both of the 4GB sd cards though will work in the 1st R4 card. Have I done something wrong or did I just get lucky with the 1st one that it will handle the 4GB card?! I sent the R4 card back to the store because I thought is was faulty, but they said it worked fine. Why would the first R4 card be able to handle the 4GB sd card and the second one wouldn't?

    Did you buy the same type of R4 card each time? There are many type of R4 card on the market some of them more reliable than others.

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!

When I play Pokemon Pearl, the game freezes once I run up the road to Solaceon Town. Any Solutions?


may be your r4 card is broken, how about you format the sd card and try to re-down load the game again? If it still doesn't work, there will be some problem with it.

I have purchase the r4 card on http://r4-3.com, and it works perfect.

Hi - I have a Pentax S6 with a 1 GM SIM card. I just bought a 4 GB SIM card and am getting a memory card error message. The camera doesn't work with the 4 GB SIM card. What's wrong? What should...


The S6 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card and will not work with your camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I have purchase a second hand camera. When I put a 4 GB SD card. It does not give display


4GB "SD" cards are almost always actually SDHC (high capacity) cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Tried to download software for r4 micro sd card 4gb sh but does'nt work.comes on the ds loading ,works fine with 2gb sd card,any ideas? thank's colin


Hey there Colin,

The original R4 card only works with Micro-SD cards up to 2GB in size. To use Micro-SD cards up to 32GB, you need to buy the newer R4 SDHC card or a Nintendo DSi comaptible card. Check out R4 Cards / R4 DS Cards from DSCardWorld.com or NDS-Gear.com (NDS-Gear is probably better if you live in Europe or Canada as their shipping's slightly better internationally).

Good luck!

Same as yours


The Z740 supports only MultiMediaCards & SD Memory Cards. 4GB and larger SD cards are usually SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) types - and bear the SDHC mark on the label. These cards are not compatible with this camera. Use only MMC and SD cards. SD cards are 2 GB and under - although *some* 4 GB cards are marked as SD too; these cards may or may not work. If you purchase a 4 GB SD (not SDHC) card, make sure that it can be returned if it doesn't work reliably in your camera.

I have a Super Card R4 Revolution 3 for DS cartridge. What firmware do I need to run DS Games?? Will it work with a 4GB SDHC card?


Hello,

The original "R4v2" card will only work with Micro-SD cards up to 2GB. However, R4 SDHC and R4v3 cards WILL accept 4GB cards and above.

To identify which version you have, check out this guide

That should hopefully sort you out!

Try reformatting the card to fat i think, then put the files(must be latest version, 1.18) onto the card. Should work.
