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...

SOURCE: HI I HAVE VERSION 1.2 E MY DSI STOPED WORKING

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!!

SOURCE: My R4i card comes up with the error message when i try to load it

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.

SOURCE: R4i card not working for the DSi after system update

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.

Hi, I am trying to use an R4i card on a dsi. It has worked in the past and then just stopped so thinking it was the card i bought a new one. I formatted the sd card then downloaded the updated kernal,...


Hi Tracey,

Did you buy a fake card? If you did, you probably updated the software on your Nintendo DS and now it won't read it. This is normal for most clone cards since they can't actually be updated to use Nintendo's latest firmware.

The real R4i card has manufacturers website www.r4i-sdhc.com, NOWHERE ELSE. Check to see if the one you have has this website on it. If not, and you need a genuine one in the US/Canada, use DSCardWorld.com who are a preferred seller of the authentic ones. They also list NDS-Gear.com but I think they mainly do UK/European orders.

My dsi xl won't read my R4i revolution gold


Hey Yenibeth,

I think it may be because you went to System Update and updated your DSi to the latest firmware? Once your DSi console has been updated to v1.4.3 firmware it cannot then be downgraded. If you are using a genuine R4i 3DS card (check on the r4dsrevolutioncards.com website by the way, they do a pretty good guide on the different types of genuine / fake cards. Also see r4dsrevolutioncards.com, they're pretty useful for R4i card info) then you should be able to update the firmware of the R4i card through the "Settings" menu of the R4i. You need to do this on a 1.4.2-or-below DSi console, or a DS Lite though.

NintendoDSCards.com has an info page and a video to show you how to update a legit R4i card (NOT fakes) - click here to visit the 1.4.3 R4i Update page.

If you're using a fake card (such as the R4i Gold, R4i Ultra etc.) then it's quite likely the card simply isn't supported and you'd need to get a new one. Your best bet is to buy an authentic card and simply buy something decent that's upgradable. DS cards unfortunately don't last forever, and teams eventually stop supporting the cards - but the fake ones are terrible at this to be honest!

I personally shop with dscardworld (www.dscardworld.com) and they're great, but that's because I live in the US. I used to live in Sweden and if you are in Europe then nds-gear (nds-gear.com) are just better if you live outside of the US/Canada in my opinion, so pick depending on where you live. Both of those shops are authentic retailers of R4i, Acekard and Supercard by the way (probably others too but those are the ones I've used).

If you're getting a card for a 3DS / DSi console I'd recommend a Supercard DSTWO since it's pretty much just awesome and you can play Gameboy Advance games as well on it. But if you just need a basic card or you're using it on a DS Lite / DS, I'd get an Acekard 2i. Up to you really, I think both of them also stock the genuine R4i's but they seem to be going out of fashion these days.

Hope I've helped, good luck!

I brought a r4i gold for me dsi and i can't get it to work on my dsi, when i put it in my ds lite the background comes up black so i can't see what im doing, please help.


Hey there,

It sounds like you updated your Nintendo DSi console and your R4i card is no longer working. Also the R4i Gold is a fake card, so won't work on the newest firmwares on DS consoles. The best thing to do is to buy a card that works with the newest 1.4.3 firmware. Cards that do this include:

Check out R4DSRevolutionCards.com (not a shop) for information about R4 cards / R4i cards in general, they explain the differences between loads of different cards. My favourite is the Supercard DSTWO though. I recommend DSCardWorld.com as a shop but NDS-Gear.com apparently has some good reviews too.

Good luck!

Hello DSi Gamer,

For any errors having to do with a R4 card, never look in the manual, all those error codes have other problems that a manual would even know how to handle. If you own a real R4i SDHC, then it should work fine on the DSi v1.4u. I'd update everything including your DSi, it should be safe now, as well as get the latest R4 SDHC softwarre on a freshly formatted micro sd card.

I bet that'll fix all your problems.

If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card there too. http://www.dscardworld.com I managed to find this site after I got burned at a few others. Loved having my emails responded to because I had loads of questions, and they were quick to ship it. They test each card before sending them. US based support and shipping I believe.

Best of luck!

My r4i wont work since I updated my dsi


It's because the newest firmware blocks the R4i card, next time use google a bit more before you do a firmware update, you need to buy the
newest R4i card, the newest moddel of that flash card works again with the newest firmware.

Tip: Buy the Hyper-R4i card instead of the R4i because the hyper-r4i has
a reprogammable chip, you don't have to buy every time a new flash card, you just have to update the chip on the flashcard to bypass anny protection.

My R4i suddenly stopped working


The R4i does NOT work on UK (PAL) DSi consoles. I bought an R4i card last week and it will not work regardless of which software kernal is loaded onto it. The website I bought it from have offered to replace it with an Acekard 2i which DOES work with UK DSi's.
