Hello

A red menu screen 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. 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 But as said already reformat it completely and verify that the sd card itself is in good condition.


If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card there too. 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!

Insert it into your pc. Let pc recognize it then right click on the drive and format that thing...
if that does not work then you may just have a physically damaged or corrupted SD chip and need to return it

The R4i Red card might be a fake (the genuine one shows 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.

Good luck!

Hello, it depends how old your equipment is as SD cards and SDHC are not necessarily compatible, so if your pc and printer were designed in pre-SDHC days, then you probably wont get any success trying to reading your card.
SD cards only support 2gb max, and in order to support larger capacity for the same style card, the mapping of SDHC cards is totally different, so SD-supported equipment can't 'understand' the new mapping circuitry.
There's some interesting reading in Wikipedia which might clarify things better than my explanation.
Of course, this might not be the solution, but it's worth trying out an SD card if you have one, but I've noticed that SDHC cards are being advertised as SD cards; the only clue that they're actually SDHC is in the capacity, ie, >2gb.

Where can I insert my mini sandisk memorycard into my toshiba laptop? I see no slots for it.


If you have no SD slot on your laptop, you will have to buy an external USB SD reader. They typically cost $5-$10, and are readily available online (e.g. http://www.buy.com/prod/micro-sd-sdhc-card-usb-reader-for-1gb-2gb-4gb-8gb/q/sellerid/23962916/loc/101/213271933.html) or in almost any store with a good selection of electronics.

My ds not recognising the r4 card


Hey there,

Do you have the original R4 card? It's possible that your DS isn't recognising it because the original one (before the R4i and R4 SDHC came out etc) only accepts up to 2GB Micro-SD cards. You should check the size of the Micro-SD card you're using at the moment.

I recommend buying R4i cards / R4i DS cards from either dscardworld.com or nds-gear.com - probably nds-gear if you're in Canada or Europe since their international rates are a bit cheaper

Good luck!

It is most likely because your card is a SDHC (NEW ) and your reader is just a SD.

The SD card format only goes to 2Gb, anything after this, is an SDHC.  You are obviously trying to use this with an R4 card or similar... These will only accept micro SD, and not micro SDHC

I have a 4gb sandisk micro sdhc with adapter and the computer freezes when i have it in the sd drive.I have a hp pavilion a1 a1203w. Is there anything i can do?? Please Help


I had a similar problem not long ago. The SD and SDHC standards are different. SD only goes up to 2GB, and SDHC (high capacity) goes higher than 2GB. THe problem is that SD card readers aren't capable of reading SDHC cards, even though the card will physically fit into the card reader slot. When you insert an SDHC card into an SD card reader, the reader attempts to read the format, and locks up the OS while trying. You'll need to get an SDHC card reader and use it separately like through a USB port or something.
