Question about Nintendo DS Console
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

Try re-loading the frimware on the SD card or loading a newer version. I have found that some firmware does not work on some R4 cards. Has this R4 ever worked? Also inspect the R4 for damage, my nephews R4 wasn't working and the problem was a bite mark on the unit
