You can safely install the 1.4 update to your DSi as your R4i now has a workaround for it. The shop I bought my card from has links to download the latest software on their support page.

Best of luck!

You must install the USB into the pc, format the micro SD card (if you have one) and get the latest kernel from the CD/website, now get the R4i into your dsi, and enyoy! (please be aware that some flashcards can work on V 1.03 or under, so don't upgrade to 1.04!)

I upgrade my dsi to 1.4.1 and i cant plsy my r4i somebody help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Depending on the version of your r4i card, download the latest firmware here ( and install it over the existing files. This should allow you to run it on the newest dsi firmware. In the future, do not upgrade your dsi unless you are absolutely sure that your r4i will continue to function.

My Dsi does not pick up the R4i card. the message it displays is "no card". please help

Make sure when you are installing the software to the R4i Card you format it first. If you don't format it to the correct format type then it can cause the following; Unable to start, Freezing, corrupt files.

Goto the R4i's Manufacturer's website and get the latest version and also look for a 'How-To'. Also make sure you card is compatible with DSi XL and not just DSi.

I made an update onmy nintendo dsi and nor my R4i card does not work anymore.What can i do to make it work again?

You can't. Since you updated your Dsi to version 1.4, your r4i card is too outdated to bybass the new software of the update. You need to buy the R4i v1.4 (red box) if you still want to use an R4i card. Yes, you can still use the roms and .sav files by copying them from the old R4i card onto the computer, then to the new r4i card after installing the kernel (which I have written a guide for in the tips and tricks section, just visit my profile and the link is right there).

I bought a white nintendo dsi about 4 wks ago and bought an r4i card last wk ive downloaded games to it but they wont play on dsi can anybody help plz

you obviously either updated to version 1.4 and they dont have a patch for that yet, or your using the DS version. either can be easily checked. if its your DSi that is version 1.4 then you can format system memory, or wait for a new patch. fi its the DS version, then buy a DSi version.

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
