Hello Adrienne,

Can't stress enough the important of having the correct software. There are a few R4is and each require their own individual software. There are also a couple that won't work on DSi after the new update. If you have one of those like the R4i Gold prior to August 2009 then you'll need to pick up an upgraded card like the M3i Zero which will work on all DS systems.

If you're looking to get genuine cards for your ds (there are fakes out there), take a look here, http://www.dscardworld.com. 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. US based support and shipping I believe.

Back up the cards to your PC. Format the microchip using fat32 or 16 and reinstall the firmware making sure you are usinf the proper firmware for that card. There are many variants of the R4 and the website to download the firmware is commonly provided. A fresh reinstall should work. If your still having problems make sure the R4i is 1.4 Fixed and you try not to exceed 2G even if the card states SDHC compatible.
good luck

I have a dsi with an r4i card. was working fine, now it wont load with message saying system date error!please check nds system date. can anyone help?


Fastest way is to change your system date. I got an r5i rev. and got today the same prob. I put the card out set the system date to the 01,12,2000 and working again. Its the fastest way to solve but when the date comes again on it will do the same again. What i understand it has something to do with the 1.2v from kernel. I´m searching now for my one for the 1.18v kernel. What i read it has to work fine with that.

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!'

Hello DSi Gamer,

For any errors having to do with a R4 card, never look in the manual, all those error codes have other problems that a manual would even know how to handle. If you own a real R4i SDHC, then it should work fine on the DSi v1.4u. I'd update everything including your DSi, it should be safe now, as well as get the latest R4 SDHC softwarre on a freshly formatted micro sd card.

I bet that'll fix all your problems.

If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card there too. http://www.dscardworld.com 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. They test each card before sending them. US based support and shipping I believe.

Best of luck!
