Hello,
The old r4 card wont' work with the DSi you need a new card like the r4i SDHC

If you need to upgrade to a DSi compatible card you can get a genuine cards here 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.

Best of luck!

Yes you do need software on the r4 if you go to the R4 website you can retrive it from there

If you have a DSi with an R4 Upgrade V1.4 Revolution for DS then it is enough. If there is some problem while playing it or an any kind of error message then you should check it out again. But R4 3DS is a very good and famous game.

Hi MBell,

This is most likely because the firmware for your R4 card is incorrect. There are countless 'fake' versions of the R4 out on the market and you need to look closely at the box the card came in / the card to see what the manufacturer's website is. You'll be able to download the correct kernel for your R4 from that site.

In the future if you're looking for genuine cards / authorised retailers, I'd recommend DSCardWorld.com if you're in the US, and NDS-Gear.com if you're UK/Europe based.

Good luck!

I have a R4i card (Revolution for DS - Gold) that worked up until lately and will not work now, but this card will work on another DSI. Any R4 I put in to this DSI comes up with the following error -...


I'm afraid the R4i Gold card is a fake, and if you've updated your console to the latest 1.4.2 or 1.4.3 firmwares it's unlikely to work. Check out R4 DS Revolution Cards at www.r4dsrevolutioncards.com (info site) to differentiate between different versions of R4i cards and make sure you buy a genuine one!

A lot of the fakes will indeed work when you buy them but as soon as you update your console they'll stop working.

Good luck!

The R4 was Made in 2004 and the production stopped in 2008. And DSi has Firmware that the R4 Will NOT Work with the R4. I advise you to use an R4i or something else.
