The DSi comes with a protection for this kind of devices. You have to update the R4i firmware to make it compatible with the DSi.

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!

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/

Why wont my R4i card work with my DS lite??


Hello Princess,

There is a latest update for the R4i card that should fix that error. Do you have the real one? It should look like this http://www.dscardworld.com/dsi-cards/r4i-sdhc.shtml

Check the download page for the latest R4 SDHC software.

I have not used my DS for a while and now when I switch it on with the SDHC card in a mesage is revealed reading: system date error please check NDS system


Yesterday (31/April) I was doing a Google search on the R4i "System Date Error" problem and found the solution! Check out this blog post:

http://www.nds-gear.co.uk/blog/2010/05/nds-gear-solves-r4i-sdhc-system-date-error-problem/

Follow the instructions and use their software (for genuine R4i-SDHC cards only of course) and problem should be solved! Worked for me on a regular DSi console with the original R4i SDHC card, 4GB memory.

R4i Card not reading as card being inserted into DSI console


Big Problem. Why Did You Use R4i? R4i Is For DSi And DSi XL Only.
Try To Format It For DS Lite Requirements.
And Oh, R4 Platforms Are Not Reliable. Your R4 Unit Will Crash For About Two Months Or So. Buy EDGE Memory Sticks.

R4i working SLOW on DSi. Loads slow and make save files slow.???


cause DSI is the nintendos attempt to stop R4 card users! see the r4 and GnM cards made nintendo invest in a microsd slot! so try using that card with the dsi instead of the R4 as people now are hacking the micro sd slot to allow any ds rom to be played! faster then th R4 due to the fact that the micro sd is connected right to the motherboard of a ds game slot devices such as R4
