    So I downloaded I file that I thought updated my R4i 3ds gold but when I open the R4 I get this messeage "An error has occurred press and hold the power button..." but I don't think my DSi has been updated since its version 1.3E. Does this mean I have to buy a new card?

    Please help

    did you run the file? you need a DS lite to run the update file.

    Try reinserting and cleaning your card. That worked for me. If you still have the problem, an update might also work to update the white list of Nintendo DS games but that might be risky.

    It was on the R4 card on my Nintendo DSi I ran the update file for R4 but after that I couldn't access the R4 card and I got that error message.
    I have tried cleaning it but didn't work, the only things I can think of that I might try is updating the Nintendo or buy a new card.

    I don't it matters since most flashcards work in legacy mode.


    Yeah, don't update it yet until your sure that other flashcard you're buying supports firmware v1.4.4.

    Do you have any suggestions to which card? The whole thing started because I wanted to play b/w 2 on my DSi :)

    the cards a clone, the real r4 gold would say r4ids.cn

    If you getting a new card DStwo is awesome.

    Like hatredg0d said, DSTWO is great. But there are also some other good cards like Acekard 2i. But the one I recommend CycloDS iEvolution for Pokemon Black and White 2 because it's DSi enhanced, like WPA support and less lag. But the other two cards are just as good if you don't really need those extra features since you might be under a budget.


    That's not even a real R4i card. R4i does not exist.

    Why do you keep recommending the CycloDS iEvolution? Wifi doesn't work in DSi mode and it hasn't been updated for a while and never will be. Stop recommending shit products.

    Whoops, I forgot about the shitty Wi-Fi. I apologize. I haven't been catching up on the news. Thanks for informing me. So, go with pyromaniac's suggestion.

    And what do you mean that's not a real r4i card? r4ids.cn is one of the better r4i cards. You clearly don't know what you are talking about.

    Sounds like they applied the wrong upgrade. They'll need a second flash cart to unbrick the first, so they might as well get another flash cart and just use that.

    EDIT: And what they mean is that the only official "R4" is "R4 Revolution For DS". Any R4 that works on the DSi is not an official R4.

    R4i wasn't created by the official R4 team. That "one of the better r4i cards" is still a clone. The company that made the clone only used the R4i name for easier marketing. So clearly you don't know what your talking about. But enough of this arguing, we should actually be helping the guy who created this post. I maybe wrong, so feel free to correct me in a more respectful tone. (
