Make sure when you are installing the software to the R4i Card you format it first. If you don't format it to the correct format type then it can cause the following; Unable to start, Freezing, corrupt files.

Goto the R4i's Manufacturer's website and get the latest version and also look for a 'How-To'. Also make sure you card is compatible with DSi XL and not just DSi.

I have a R4i card (Revolution for DS - Gold) that worked up until lately and will not work now, but this card will work on another DSI. Any R4 I put in to this DSI comes up with the following error -...


I'm afraid the R4i Gold card is a fake, and if you've updated your console to the latest 1.4.2 or 1.4.3 firmwares it's unlikely to work. Check out R4 DS Revolution Cards at www.r4dsrevolutioncards.com (info site) to differentiate between different versions of R4i cards and make sure you buy a genuine one!

A lot of the fakes will indeed work when you buy them but as soon as you update your console they'll stop working.

Good luck!

MY R4I WHEN PUT INTO MY DSI COME UP AS "THERE IS NO CARD IN THE DS GAME CARD SLOT."


Hi Carrie,

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 :-)

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.

On using my r4i card my dsi displays "system date error. Please check nds system date"


R4i and Acekard are decent cards, but I've had personal good luck with M3i Zero. The M3 team has been a consistent performer and I've never had problems with it.

I have an R4i card for the DSi but I can't seem to get it to work with the DSi. I have put the firmware etc on it but when I place it into the DSi I get a picture of a memory card with a happy face then...


Hi,

I would suggest reinstalling the latest kernel click here and download "R4i 1.58 Kernel"

Extract all the files from the .zip file and put them all on the SD card. Reinsert the SD into the R4i card and put it into the DS.

Hopefully it will now work.

NOTE: The R4i kernel will only work on DSi firmware 1.5 or below...if yours is higher then you will have to downgrade it for the R4i to work.

Hope this helps, any problems feel free to message me.

Regards,

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.
