I'm afraid that your DSi has had an updated, likely to be included with a rec3nt game that has been played on the DSi - even though your firmware is 1.3e it has the same protection as 1.4e. You need to buy a 1.4 compatible R4 card such as this one: http://www.memorycardzoo.com/2045/R4/R4i-SDHC/R4i-Standalone-Card/

SOURCE: i downloaded my latest firmware for r4i sdhc

Hi Hami,

You may well be using a fake R4i card, and you probably updated the software on your Nintendo DS and now it won't read it. This is normal for most clone cards since they can't actually be updated to use Nintendo's latest firmware.

The real R4i card has manufacturers website www.r4i-sdhc.com, NOWHERE ELSE. Check yours to see if it is this website. If it isn't, and you need a genuine one in the US/Canada, use DSCardWorld.com who are a preferred seller of the authentic ones. They also list NDS-Gear.com but I think they mainly do UK/European orders.

Good luck! Please upvote my answer if I've been helpful :-) Sorry about the possible bad news! :-(

R4i Gold, R4i Ultra and R4i Red cards are fakes, 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!

Hi my r4i card for ndsi has stopped working since i did system update now 1.4.2E all i get is an error has occured press and hold the power button is ther any way at all to sort this out? CAN ANYONE HELP...


It's possible that the R4i Card you have is a fake (the genuine one has r4i-sdhc.com on the box, note the hyphen!), 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. Make sure you buy a real one in the future to avoid frustration!

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/

System date error\r\n


Hi,

This kind of error is caused by a software incompatibility to continue to function when the dates on the Nintendo DS/DSi were set differently than the files on the Micro-SD card. This problem could have arisen when a user transferred a .SAV file from a DS with a different date, or the DS ran out of battery.In most cases, setting the date back a few days temporarily will solve the problem and in some cases up to a month was required!.The software from NDS-Gear, which can be downloaded in R4i Software Downloads page, is a permanent fix to the issue for the R4i SDHC card!
This software will NOT work for FAKE R4i SDHC cards (i.e. the ones from r4isdhc.com as opposed to r4i-sdhc.com).

Thank you !!

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

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!
