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. Make sure you buy a real one in the future to avoid frustration!

Good luck!

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 :-)

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

Why do the games take a long time to load from my r4i card, when I transfer the game onto the r4 card and try it in the ds lite there are no problems?


I have the same problem, i have no trouble putting games onto a r4 or a dstt card, but it is a lot slower with some games, not all games, when putting them onto a r4i or a dstti, i think the problem is the i cards are still in the early stages of development, i think as time goes on the people who make these cards will sort the problem out, i hope, in the meantime we will just have to put up with it, all the games will play but some, but some are slower to load.

Troubleshooting R4i Gold Card for DSi


Hi I was having the same problem but now I have fixed it. My dsi is running version 1.4 and I have a R4i GOLDwhich is now running 1.54 with the r4i update that I got from this web site.

http://dsdatabase.org/blog/2009/08/14dsifirmware/

You need to load them onto your memory card and then put it in a ds or ds lite and run the update. Hope it helps its worked for me 5 times so far on different r4i gold cards.

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.
