    I read some of the stickies that would be related to my question, but i couldn't find an answer. Simply can my old R4 (original one) work on my DSi that i just got? I have a dslite and it works fine on that (currently on the wood r4 firmware), but when i try it on the DSi; it doesn't decect the flash cart at all. If it can work with the DSi, please help show me where to get it working. If it doesn't work, which flash cart (cheap) should i purchase that would be compatible?

    No, if you want a cheap card that works on the DSi go with the Acekard 2i, If you want to keep Wood R4, go with the R4i Gold from this site

    The R4i Gold would be your best bet if you want cheap a card that updates quite often and has one of the greatest kernals (in my option, some might argue otherwise, but I use both Wood and AKAIO and I prefer wood over AKAIO.)

    Yeah that came out weird, my bad. I meant if you want a card that does all that, go with R4i Gold.
    One second I am going to edit that post.

    IIRC it doesn't matter which one since they both can update to work with the latest firmwares, but it's best just to get the most updated card, so go with the R4i Gold 3DS.
