Hello alimac,

The newest Nintendo update (1.4.1 or 1.4.2) blocks most flash cards on the DSi and DSi XL consoles so it's quite likely you've fallen victim to this. Check out DSCardWorld's blog post about it here:

http://www.dscardworld.com/blog/2010/09/24/dsi-1-4-1-firmware-fixes-for-acekard-2i-ezflash-vi-m3i-zero/

You can probably buy a card that works with the 1.4.1 update like the Acekard 2i, EZFlash Vi or M3i Zero. However, make sure you only buy the real one as fake/clone cards can't be updated when Nintendo releases a new firmware (it makes them cheaper to produce that way, which is why they don't do it). I recommend grabbing R4i / DS cards from www.dscardworld.com itself or R4 Cards from NDS-Gear if you're in Canada or Europe, since their international shipping rates are a bit cheaper.

Good luck!

Hi when i updated my dsi and then went on my r4i it came up with the following message: an error has occured. press and hold the power button to turn the system off. please refer to the nitendo DSI...


Hi the update has caused the dsi to refuse the r4 card nintendo have put some data in the update that stops you using the r4 cards so your not going to be able to use it, you may be able to do the following depending on what dsi you have got

which kind of r4i do you have?
If you have a R4i golden or R4i-SDHC(red), then you have to buy a new card for your dsi , because two of the cards are un-upgreadeable.
If you have a Hyper-r4i, R4i_CN or R4Ui , then you can download an updater progommen to update your r4i to fit the DSi V1.4 firmware.
Here is a list for Flash cart update:

hopefully you can get it sorted you will either need a new r4 card that is able to work with the latest update or follow the instrucions on the links above if your dsi is one listed above

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

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

My r4i wont work since I updated my dsi


It's because the newest firmware blocks the R4i card, next time use google a bit more before you do a firmware update, you need to buy the
newest R4i card, the newest moddel of that flash card works again with the newest firmware.

Tip: Buy the Hyper-R4i card instead of the R4i because the hyper-r4i has
a reprogammable chip, you don't have to buy every time a new flash card, you just have to update the chip on the flashcard to bypass anny protection.

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!

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.

Dsi r4i error message


According to the website for R4i SDHC the new system update for the DSI will not allow any cards to be used. R4i will only work on 1.3 version of the system software...To verify check the bottom right hand corner of the top screen in system settings...
