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 :-)

Simple i have a r4 with sd card with over 90 games in it but when i turn on the 3ds i see the card but when i click on it it says an erroe has occurred ...what is the proublem


It's going to depend on which r4 card you have and if you've updated your firmware on your R4. The only versions of the r4 card that are compatible with the 3DS are "R4i Gold", "R4i Gold 3DS", "R4iDSN" and "R4iDSN 3DS". If your R4 card is not one of these, then unfortunately this will mean your R4 is not going to work with the 3DS. If you have one of these cards, you'll simply need to update your firmware:

- R4i Gold 3DS from R4ids.cn (3DS V2.0.0-2 Patch for R4i gold 3DS card)
- R4i Gold from R4ids.cn (3DS V2.0.0-2 Patch for R4i gold (NON-3DS) card)
- R4iDSN 3DS (R4idsn 3DS 2.0.0-2 Patch)
- R4iDSN (R4idsn 3DS 2.0.0-2 Patch for Non-3DS card)

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!

System date error. Please check NDS system date


Hi,
Just change the date before 14 april 2010 and it wil work.
Since yesterday there is a new firmare update available.
See the message below from the manufacturer.

Omer


Due to the fault of our R4 team,except R4(I) SDHC V2.0,all the kernels can not work normally base on the date after 14th, April, 2010. The issues are the system date error and when you booting up the consoles, you couldn't enter into the main manu. We are awfully sorry for this. The temporary solution is to adjust your system date before 14th, April, 2010. R4 team will remedy this bug with the latest kernel and do the activity to reward the consumers! The latest information for this activity will be released at www.r4isdhc.com and www.nds9.com. Please pay more attention to this!

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

Games on r41 card wont play on ds


The R4i will work just fine on a DS Lite, I don't know what you're talking about. As for the DSi, it depends on which R4i it is. f 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 supportpage. And I noticed they made a video about it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QV4sNQf2uS4
