Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
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. The fix is easy, no flashing or danger to your card or DSi.
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.
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!

Probaly you've done a firmware update on your Nintendo DSi and have updated it to firmware version 1.4.
Nintendo implemended a new feature in this firmware that blocks most comon flash card adaptors like the R4i.
This means you'll have to buy a new flash card adaptor that is not blocked by the latest Nintendo DSi firmware.
Use one of these Flash adaptors:
Hyper-R4i, Acekard 2i, R4i Gold,
M3i Zero, Ez Flash Vi.
These adaptors have flashable rom, meaning when Nintendo blocks them again, that these adaptors need to be reflashed to bypass the protection build in by Nintendo.
You don't have to throw them away.
I'm currently using the Hyper-R4i.
Note that this adaptor needs to be update first before you ever start thinking about to install the newest firmware on your DSi, becouse you
need to use a Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DS to
update its firmware.
The M3i Zero is a better choice for some poeple because it uses a pc with a usb cable to update it's firmware.

R4i and Acekard are decent cards, but I've had personal good luck with M3i Zero. The M3 team has been a consistent performer and I've never had problems with it.
