SOURCE: when i insert my R4i for DSi card, it start to say

You're not going to find manual support for a flash card like the R4.
Your best bet is to just reformat the SD card and start over 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.


If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card there too. 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 dsi xl won't read my R4i revolution gold


Hey Yenibeth,

I think it may be because you went to System Update and updated your DSi to the latest firmware? Once your DSi console has been updated to v1.4.3 firmware it cannot then be downgraded. If you are using a genuine R4i 3DS card (check on the r4dsrevolutioncards.com website by the way, they do a pretty good guide on the different types of genuine / fake cards. Also see r4dsrevolutioncards.com, they're pretty useful for R4i card info) then you should be able to update the firmware of the R4i card through the "Settings" menu of the R4i. You need to do this on a 1.4.2-or-below DSi console, or a DS Lite though.

NintendoDSCards.com has an info page and a video to show you how to update a legit R4i card (NOT fakes) - click here to visit the 1.4.3 R4i Update page.

If you're using a fake card (such as the R4i Gold, R4i Ultra etc.) then it's quite likely the card simply isn't supported and you'd need to get a new one. Your best bet is to buy an authentic card and simply buy something decent that's upgradable. DS cards unfortunately don't last forever, and teams eventually stop supporting the cards - but the fake ones are terrible at this to be honest!

I personally shop with dscardworld (www.dscardworld.com) and they're great, but that's because I live in the US. I used to live in Sweden and if you are in Europe then nds-gear (nds-gear.com) are just better if you live outside of the US/Canada in my opinion, so pick depending on where you live. Both of those shops are authentic retailers of R4i, Acekard and Supercard by the way (probably others too but those are the ones I've used).

If you're getting a card for a 3DS / DSi console I'd recommend a Supercard DSTWO since it's pretty much just awesome and you can play Gameboy Advance games as well on it. But if you just need a basic card or you're using it on a DS Lite / DS, I'd get an Acekard 2i. Up to you really, I think both of them also stock the genuine R4i's but they seem to be going out of fashion these days.

Hope I've helped, good luck!

I have just had a system update on my nintendo dsi and now i am triyin to play a game on my r4i chip and a message is appering on the screen "turn the console of and refer to the manual" any help...


the newest system update blocks unofficial nintendo approved game cards, like the r4i. this is to prevent privacy. there is nothing you can do except wait for a new firmware update to your r4i card that will run around the new update. please rate my solution, good or bad.

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:
http://www.4coolday.com/more_news&news_id=25.html


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 daughters new dsi wont play r4 card but it plays fine on my dsi


If your Daughter as been on the internet with her dsi, she will not be able to use the r4i, because if you update your dsi, it will stop her playing games with a r4i on her dsi, if she as dont update yours because it will do the same.

R4i stopped working - firmware 1.3E, What to do


I'm afraid that your DSi has had an updated, likely to be included with a rec3nt game that has been played on the DSi - even though your firmware is 1.3e it has the same protection as 1.4e. You need to buy a 1.4 compatible R4 card such as this one: http://www.memorycardzoo.com/2045/R4/R4i-SDHC/R4i-Standalone-Card/

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.
