    I have a few problems with my R4 crashing:

    1. Sometimes when I close the lid and reopen it, it's crashed and nothing responds.
    2. Sometimes when I'm playing Worms Open Warfare 2 (only game I'm playing on it at the mo) it sometimes randomly crashes. I restart the DS and the R4 is not detected.

    My R4 has been slowly getting less responsive. I frequently have to blow on the connecters to get it working which oddly is only required when I remove my Micro SD card.

    None of these problems occur with normal carts.

    I'm using a 1GB Sandisk Ultra II card.

    This sometimes happens with cards which have been used for a long time. It happened with my Passcard 3 too, I would recommend either replacing it, or try to avoid anything which will make it crash.

    1 is caused by the card being knocked about when in sleep mode, it normally freezes or continues playing up to were the ram memory runs out

    I think your R4 is sitting to loose in the DS. Maybe you should try using it with a piece of paper on the side of it or something, so the contacts won't lose contact.
