Hello,

A red menu icon freeze usually means that there's the wrong version of the software installed. You have to make sure it was made for your specific model of R4, and there are a few out there.

You need to put the correct software onto the card otherwise there's nothing for the r4 to load.

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. I got my iEdge from there. 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.

I dont know what files i need to put on my r4i card to make the games work. i have previously used a normal r4 card for a ds but have now brought a dsi.


Hey myc2gt,

For the DSi, it's probably been upgraded to the latest 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!

When I insert my R4i game card, the icon comes up as ALEX RIDER STORMBREAKER THQ. But also when I tap on the icon, it just comes up with the word MENU on the top screen in red. I have a 4GB SD card...


download this firmware http://www.r4i.cn/download-en.htm and empty your micro sd card of everything beside the 4 game files. then copy over all files and programs directly to your sd card. then insert it back into your r4i and your r4i into your ds. after you turn it on it should go to a menu screen after you tap on the Alex rider, Storm breaker thq. then select your game to play it.

Heya,

This is probably happening because you updated your DSi 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.

R4i gold and Micro SDHC 4GB card ,I download software Kernel V1.32 from R4i GOLDwebsite. When I start my Nintendo everything looks OK, but when I select the game,start loading, and shortly afterwards...


If you can get into the card menu then you have the right software, but it sounds like severe instability like a fake card would have. Try the <a href="http://www.dscardworld.com">R4i SDHC</a>. It's been proven to work better then the R4i Gold.

Why wont my R4i card work with my DS lite??


Hello Princess,

There is a latest update for the R4i card that should fix that error. Do you have the real one? It should look like this http://www.dscardworld.com/dsi-cards/r4i-sdhc.shtml

Check the download page for the latest R4 SDHC software.

Im noty getting this....everyime i load a firmware on my r4i gold it always just gets me to a screen with the red memory stick with a question mark and ''menu'' inside...i dont know what im doing wrong...


Hello,

A red menu icon freeze usually means that there's the wrong version of the software installed. You have to make sure it was made for your specific model of R4, and there are a few out there.

The right R4 software can be hard to track down, that's why I went with the iEdge card . There's only one to find :)

Most reputable vendors like http://www.dscardworld.com won't even stock the R4i Gold as it's proven to be unreliable in the past.

That happened to me aswell. Try downloading the R4I file, then extract the file. Open it up the copy and paste the files into your chip. That seemed solve the problem for me...but now..the only problem is that my screen is stuck on loading.....
