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.

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!
