Two days ago it stopped loadind i have formated the card 3 times and reloaded all software but it still wont load. i does work on old DS though. Can you help?

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!

My son has a ds lite with an r4 card, i am thinking of getting him a dsi, i know his r4 card will not work but would i be able to remove the sd card and insert it into a new r4i card? would his games work?...


Yes, his games will work, as the DSi will be fully backwards compatible. You should be able to use the same memory card that he uses in the DS Lite.

R4i working SLOW on DSi. Loads slow and make save files slow.???


cause DSI is the nintendos attempt to stop R4 card users! see the r4 and GnM cards made nintendo invest in a microsd slot! so try using that card with the dsi instead of the R4 as people now are hacking the micro sd slot to allow any ds rom to be played! faster then th R4 due to the fact that the micro sd is connected right to the motherboard of a ds game slot devices such as R4

Troubleshooting R4i Gold Card for DSi


Hi I was having the same problem but now I have fixed it. My dsi is running version 1.4 and I have a R4i GOLDwhich is now running 1.54 with the r4i update that I got from this web site.

http://dsdatabase.org/blog/2009/08/14dsifirmware/

You need to load them onto your memory card and then put it in a ds or ds lite and run the update. Hope it helps its worked for me 5 times so far on different r4i gold cards.

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.
