Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
When I go on R4i for my dsi it isn't working and we have done everything but it still won't work. I had a dsi when I was little an then I got this one but this one had all the extras on and it is dsi xl
Could you state what exactly you have attempted?
For firmware updates, go to R4i's website and go to the "Download" tab. Download the latest firmware files, and put those on the root of your MicroSD card. Reattempt booting it up.
Another issue could be that the internals of your DSi have become dirty. Try cleaning the contacts of the game slot with a dry tissue, and attempt again.
Does your DSi load other games but not R4i? The R4i is probably broken. Check if you have any warranty and contact the R4 team. If the DSi doesn't load any games, attempt cleaning. If this still is the issue, the DSi is broken and you should contact Nintendo.

SOURCE: dsi r4i error message
According to the website for R4i SDHC the new system update for the DSI will not allow any cards to be used. R4i will only work on 1.3 version of the system software...To verify check the bottom right hand corner of the top screen in system settings...

You probably have to reinstall the files onto your micro sd. If your like me and have removed the usb reader improperly instead of waiting untill it was safe to remove and lost some data. Reinstalling the root and checking for any updates or fixes for that particular problem may help. Good Luck!!

If you updated you DSI firmware to 1.4, nintendo have stopped the use of flash cards in the uodate, i got my r4 through the post 4 days ago and i had already updated to 1.4 and get the same message. So far i haven found any help with rolling back to 1.3 or getting an update for the r4i software to work. Lets hope it happens soon!
In short you DSi is Not broken, its just been updated to 1.4.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the help your right i said my ds was broken so i could get a new one thats 1.3 again! lol"
Currently r4i doesnt have a fix for this. I would suggest getting an acekard 2i or hyper r4i.
The way the fixed this issue was to rename the card.
Most fixes show the card as (Danny Phantom) after the patch has been applied.
