I have the same problem. I have tried updating the firmware which did not work.
I am running version 1.2e on my dsi so the problem should not be with the 1.4 upgrade.
Strangely, the R4i works fine on a friends DSlite, so the card itself does not appear to be faulty

Hi there,
Do you have the latest firmware installed on it?
If not than this may be the issue.
I also heard that the DSi ``compatible`` Development Kits don't work that great with the DSi's anti Piracy program.
Cheers

My dsi is ver 1.43e and i have a r4i-sdhc card and an error comes up ....an error has occurred. press and hold the power button to turn the system off


Hi Talbca,

It's possible that somebody has updated the DSi console to the latest 1.4.3 firmware. A lot of flash cards, especially fake ones, no longer work on the 1.4.3 firmware. Always make sure the card does work before any console upgrade or this can happen. :-(

If you're 100% sure you have a genuine R4i card (it will show r4i-sdhc.com, with the hyphen [r4isdhc.com is fake] on the box or the card if it's genuine), then try the YouTube video attached to this post. Hopefully that will fix the issue, remember you need an older DSi (pre-1.4.3) or DS Lite to apply the update.

You'd probably have to buy a new DS card to back up your games on - if you're US based I'd recommend DSCardWorld.com but if you're Europe based then NDS-Gear.com is the way to go. Both of these places only sell genuine cards and are authorised resellers fo popular models like the Acekard 2i, Supercard DSTWO and Cyclo DS iEvolution.

Please upvote my answer if I've been helpful, and good luck!

When r4i card is inserted , dsi reads . An error has occured .Press and hold the power button to turn the system off.Please see manual


If your DSi has the most recent firmware, v. 1.4, then you'll have to wait to update your R4i when they release an appropriate update. http://www.r4dscards.com/R4i-DS-Card/

Hi when i updated my dsi and then went on my r4i it came up with the following message: an error has occured. press and hold the power button to turn the system off. please refer to the nitendo DSI...


Hi the update has caused the dsi to refuse the r4 card nintendo have put some data in the update that stops you using the r4 cards so your not going to be able to use it, you may be able to do the following depending on what dsi you have got

which kind of r4i do you have?
If you have a R4i golden or R4i-SDHC(red), then you have to buy a new card for your dsi , because two of the cards are un-upgreadeable.
If you have a Hyper-r4i, R4i_CN or R4Ui , then you can download an updater progommen to update your r4i to fit the DSi V1.4 firmware.
Here is a list for Flash cart update:

hopefully you can get it sorted you will either need a new r4 card that is able to work with the latest update or follow the instrucions on the links above if your dsi is one listed above

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

System date error! Please check NDS system data. This has come up on screen, could you give any advice please


Hi ya
remove your R4 card. Go to the system setting and turn your date on the dsi back by a year!!
Put your R41 back in and it should work.
happened to my sons and the only way it would work was to turn the date back.

When I insert my R4i card for DSi and select start


What firmware is your DSi using? If you recently updated to v1.4 then it will prevent your R4i from working. Luckily hackers have released their own firmware to fix this problem. Try updating your firmware

I put my R4i gold card in the slot but it just says "An error occurred.Press and hold the Power Button to turn the system off.Please see the Nintendo DSi Operations Manuel for help troubleshooting."


Since your actually not supposed to use the gold card according to the government the dsi might be a stubborn one and the gold card info cant get through or your gold card might be faulty. The most foolproof solution is to get a R4i sdhc in a red box. Then again you can try blowing into the card insert or blowing into the sandisk slot.

Good luck! :)

R4i Card


Well when you update it to 1.4a it blocks it because that version blocks r4i cards or any kind of firmware, people have had this problem before so look at the other questions before answering another one and use 'GOOGLE!'

R4i error after update the system


Hello,

Which R4i you have will determine what you can do. If you have the R4i Gold, then I'm sorry to tell you, there's no workaround for DSi 1.4. If you have R4i SDHC (redbox) then you can get the latest firmware to make it work again.

There's a great tutorial to set it up on http://www.dscardworld.com with pictures and links to all the official software on their support page. And I noticed they made a video about it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QV4sNQf2uS4

If you need to upgrade to a DSi v1.4 compatible card you can get a genuine cards there too. All their DSi compatible cards are clearly labeled. 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!

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.

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...
