    Can someone please help me solve this problem.

    I have a Nintendo 3DS and i have an R4i card from www.r4i-gold.hk and it gets the error message:
    An error has occured. Press and hold the POWER button to turn the system off

    I have googled and tried a few different things to no avail. I am not sure i have the right files on the memory card when i put it into the DS as it doesn't recognise the files on the card when i put it in.
    I hope i am posting in the right place, apologies if i am not.

    I have in my possession another nintendo, it's a DSi with v1.4E on it, i hope someone can help me

    Cheers in advance

    thanks for that helpful link Rydian. Can you help me find the files i need to get the card working in my Nintendo DSi so i can flash the card in it though, please? It has an unlimited upgrade sticker on it and it has this site on the cart: http://www.r4i-gold.hk/

    Ok thankyou so much for your help dude, because i would have kept on chasing my tail on this one. I have just checked and the 3DS has firmware: 4.5.0-10E does this now mean i have to wait or it doesnt matter if i wait or not, the 3DS will need a new cart?

    Paypal's taking bribes from Nintendo or something (Paypal is not a bank so they're not under the same regulations) and shuts down the accounts of anybody using paypal to sell flash carts.

    So of the few shops that still risk using it, you need to e-mail them for the payment information.

    They're GBAtemps official sponsor so they take efforts to keep things working.

    yes like that one
    but ive personally never heard of that site and wouldn't trust it so the risk you take by using an unkown website is completely your own

    considering the site you listed is owned by someone called Ying HU and lives in Shanghai China it sure doesn't seem like someone in Ireland owns it so id say its a fraudsters website
