Question about Nintendo DSi Black Console

2 Answers

R4i Card After upgrading my DSi through the internet services, my R4i Card no longer works. I get an error message once selecting the game icon which reads: "An error has occured. Press and hold the POWER Button to turn the system off. Please refer to the Nintendo DSi Operations Manual for details". Is there any way I can update my R4i card to make it work or go back to my orginal DSi settings?

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.

If you need to upgrade to a DSi 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!

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!'

I just got the R4i card and after installing the software and installing the card on my dsi, I get an error message--Error Turn the DS off. I know I updated the DSi last week.


Hey there,

It sounds like you updated your Nintendo DSi console and your R4i card is no longer working. The best thing to do is to buy a card that works with the newest 1.4.3 firmware. Cards that do this include:

Check out R4DSRevolutionCards.com (not a shop) for information about R4 cards / R4i cards in general, they explain the differences between loads of different cards. My favourite is the Supercard DSTWO though. I recommend DSCardWorld.com as a shop but NDS-Gear.com apparently has some good reviews too.

Good luck!

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!

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.

My daughter connected her DSi to the Nintendo DSi Shop and now her R4i-SDCH card no longer works. The DSi can still read the R4i-SDCH card on the menu but once you click it it reads.... ''An error has...


That doesn't work,
Basically the DSI update has blocked the R4 slot card, nothing you can do now!
No matter what firmware you place onto the card the blocking device is built into the DSI memory, I've tried formatting/changing dates/other slot cards. no good.
Afraid to say the DSI is no longer compatable with the slot cards except for the authentic cards.
