    Hi Guys

    I have bought a R4SDHC Revolution for our DS. It came with a 8Gb micro card. This one specifically takes a 8GB card.

    When I loaded it into our DS - it appears to have bricked it.

    When I put the charger on, the little orange light pops up for one second then disappears.

    I have done a battery pull and no success...

    Help me if you can please !!!!

    Unless you flashed your ds I don't think there is anything you can do unless you buy another ds......

    you are using fake/clone R4
    so
    a Fuse may have blown in the DS

    Look at the Flag...
    Looks like R4 SDHC (advance) have a very very bad batch.

    It's not the first time I see someone complaining about their DS not able to start after using it for the first time...

    LuckyLuke1 > There is no way to fix your R4, if it's badly made, just ask for a replacement (something like AK2, Cyclo, edge...), or throw it in the trash.

    If you've got some good soldering skill, you can repair your ds (type "DS Blown fuse" in google first link).

    Solution get Nintendo to fix it. I feel sorry that you didn't do your research that no more R4DS exist, this is the reason why I don't like clones. Now you have to open up your DS or send it to Nintendo to get it fix. Just shows you how harmful a clone can really do to your system.

    Just wondering ... are there even fake clones out there?

    R4 SDHC need not necessary ONLY support 8 GB MICROSDHC CARD

    I use my 2 GB MicroSD and works fine. DS didn't brick ... homebrew most work like charm ... it has been 2 months ya~
