Elliott,

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!

I cant get my dsi to play games with r4 card,,even had r4 card downloaded with new games


The DSi has several system updates specifically designed to block flashcarts such as the R4. Check the R4 website to see if they have information on what to do if your DSi has blocked the cart. You might be able to do an update to the R4 to fix it. Another option is to get a different cart that has a work-around built in, such as the "SuperCard DSTwo" which has a small chip inside it that other carts don't have and has a file you can download directly onto the memory card that goes into the cart to update it whenever that happens.

Simple i have a r4 with sd card with over 90 games in it but when i turn on the 3ds i see the card but when i click on it it says an erroe has occurred ...what is the proublem


It's going to depend on which r4 card you have and if you've updated your firmware on your R4. The only versions of the r4 card that are compatible with the 3DS are "R4i Gold", "R4i Gold 3DS", "R4iDSN" and "R4iDSN 3DS". If your R4 card is not one of these, then unfortunately this will mean your R4 is not going to work with the 3DS. If you have one of these cards, you'll simply need to update your firmware:

- R4i Gold 3DS from R4ids.cn (3DS V2.0.0-2 Patch for R4i gold 3DS card)
- R4i Gold from R4ids.cn (3DS V2.0.0-2 Patch for R4i gold (NON-3DS) card)
- R4iDSN 3DS (R4idsn 3DS 2.0.0-2 Patch)
- R4iDSN (R4idsn 3DS 2.0.0-2 Patch for Non-3DS card)

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.

Did software upgrade on my dsi xl now my r4 card v.1.4 wont work


Hey there! The problem is that when you do a software update, Nintendo likes to add in new firmware to stop r4 cards and the like from working on the dsi. What you'll want to do, is find a new firmware update for the card itself. If you head over to the GBATemp forums, and find the forum for your card, and find the new firmware update for your card.
Hope that helped!

R4 cartridge says loading but does not


Hello Mad,

You need to put the correct software onto the card otherwise there's nothing for the r4 to load.

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 they might not have your exact card model's software. If you check the packaging of your flash card there should be a manufacturer's website on it that will have the latest official software for your particular flash card. Or you can check the list of R4 card types here for their manufacturer's websites http://www.r4dsrevolution.co.uk

If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card like the R4 SDHC 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.
