Why won't my sons acekard work on his dsi xl, it says there is an error, i just bought the acekard and it was working on my other sons dsi xl but not my other sons dsi xl. what am i suppose to do.

Hi Fey,

This is probably because you've updated your DSi console to the 1.4.3 firmware. If you take a look at the Acekard 1.4.3 Update page on the R4 DS card website at it should explain the Acekard in some detail.

If you use a DS Lite or a pre-1.4.3 DSi (you may need to borrow from a friend) you may be able to update it, but otherwise buying a new pre-updated card will do the trick just as well.

I personally shop at but that's cause I now live in the US, if you're in the UK/Europe I'd recommend them instead since their shipping's a bit cheaper but both of them are authorised retailers with decent customer support so whichever you choose it'll still be fine :-)

Also, I think this still works - on use the voucher "dsmagazine" gets you 10% off. Not sure when it lasts till though, I found it in NDS Gaming magazine, so use it while you can! I think there's a minimum spend of $20 or $25 but most cards plus a micro SD will take you over that anyway. They stock pretty awesome cards like the Cyclo iDS and Supercard DSTWO so it's not too difficult.

Good luck! Please upvote my answer if I've been helpful. :-)

I have been playing on my dsi today and all of a sudden all my games have gone off my r4 card and it says error when i try to get them

Nintendo is sending out updates constantly to try and stop its users from abusing flash cards like the R4. A recent update could brick your R4 card.

The new 3DS will be getting an update to sense if you've been using a flash card, and if it senses the card, Nintendo will send an update to brick your 3DS and render it unusable.

My son has a ds lite with an r4 card, i am thinking of getting him a dsi, i know his r4 card will not work but would i be able to remove the sd card and insert it into a new r4i card? would his games work?...

Yes, his games will work, as the DSi will be fully backwards compatible. You should be able to use the same memory card that he uses in the DS Lite.

I bought 100 games on a R4i card from a guy. It worked for 2 weeks then my son did something to DSI and now Dsi will not read the R4 card the icon it had on main screen is now gone. I put the chip in...

it seems the problem is with the R4 card not the memory card. take game out make sure connections going into the ds are good. try blowing it out like old school nintendo. i have a r4 with my ds lite and sometimes it wont work i have to try a couple times

My R4i card comes up with the error message when i try to load it

If you updated you DSI firmware to 1.4, nintendo have stopped the use of flash cards in the uodate, i got my r4 through the post 4 days ago and i had already updated to 1.4 and get the same message. So far i haven found any help with rolling back to 1.3 or getting an update for the r4i software to work. Lets hope it happens soon!

In short you DSi is Not broken, its just been updated to 1.4.
