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

My nintendo has got a problem for a few months now. when turn on the power button, it has given an error messagge "an error has occurred. press and hold the power button to turn the system off....


If the following error message appeared in your DSi or DSI XL: "An error has occurred. Press and hold the POWER button to turn the system off...", It means that your Nintendo has been updated (by the Internet) to the version 1.4.2 (or 1.4.3) or you bought it updated. In this case your DSi XL or DSi doesn't work with any flashcard in the market.

If you don't have an updated flashcard, the solution requieres both "updating the kernel of your flashcard" and also "patching it". I hope it helps you.

When r4i card is inserted , dsi reads . An error has occured .Press and hold the power button to turn the system off.Please see manual


If your DSi has the most recent firmware, v. 1.4, then you'll have to wait to update your R4i when they release an appropriate update. http://www.r4dscards.com/R4i-DS-Card/

My daughter connected her DSi to the Nintendo DSi Shop and now her R4i-SDCH card no longer works. The DSi can still read the R4i-SDCH card on the menu but once you click it it reads.... ''An error has...


That doesn't work,
Basically the DSI update has blocked the R4 slot card, nothing you can do now!
No matter what firmware you place onto the card the blocking device is built into the DSI memory, I've tried formatting/changing dates/other slot cards. no good.
Afraid to say the DSI is no longer compatable with the slot cards except for the authentic cards.

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!'

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.
