    I thought I'd drop a line and let you know that Nintendo is putting locks on some/or all of there games to stop people buying nintendo's from over seas. They don't care if people get them for presents from relations who live over seas, which is what has happened in my case, my kids where spoiled for Xmas from rallies from Florida with the nintendo XL. So now we have to keep our eyes open for America games or sent away for them. So sorry your advise didn't do us any good. Debra

Downloaded art academy for r4i gold card , have downloaded games before all other games work fine except art academy , put it onto dsi r4 card plays fine but not on r4i gold card , cant understand why can...


Hey Dave,

This is probably happening because you updated your DSi 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! Please upvote my answer if I was useful :-)

Got r4i card. When inserted into ds lite, message says ''Loading....'' However nothing happens after this. Any ideas ?


Wrong, wrong, wrong Megan.

The R4i works on DSL as wekk as DSi however, some of these cards are dodgy (apparently about 30%!) and this is a known issue. With the dodgy cards it can take 2 to 3 minutes to load a game. Just leave it at the loading screen for up to 4 minutes...if it still doesn't load you're card is totally goosed

Ds doesn't recognise games


First, you need to make sure that, if the system is a DS or DS Lite, that the system is off when you insert it. If it was, or if you system is a DSi or DSi XL, then you might try blowing on the card and in the card slot or, better still, use a cleaning kit on the contacts to clear them of any contaminants. If this still doesn't solve your problem, then you may need to contact the Nintendo Customer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700 to send it in for repairs.

R4Ds not working on NDS I


oh sorry didnt read your post right the first time, you have a new dsi? nintendo have been clever in not only makin the dsi region bound unlike the normal ds lite, meaning it will not play games from other regions where as the ds lite can but it does also made sure that the new dsi does not support any super card, be it the r4, dstt, n5. they are gits. the r4 ,dstt teams etc have promised to do cards that the dsi supports but dunno wen avalible yet and im guessin will cost more, sorry to let you in on this gimmick that nintendo have caused.hope this helps.
