    Hello guys, I have an r4 that supports newest games back ups by using Wood r4. However, I would like to use my 8GB MicroSD on it but it doesnt work :(

    I read that the R4i SDHC 3DS supports the Nintendo DS Lite too. I was wondering if this card can use Wood r4 to use latest back ups or not? Thank you, this is the one I want to get by the way:

    If you want wood r4 + sdhc cards (4gb or more) support, a r4i Gold 3ds (from http://r4ids.cn) is a much better investment. It has official wood support from wood r4's developer, so the updates come along the original r4's release. Make sure you get the one from the above link because there are some crap-clone that has 'r4i' 'Gold' and '3ds' in their name.

    Not the right one. Unfortunately, there are a lot of crap-clones that have the same name, or at least 'gold' or '3ds' in their name. :sleep:

    They usually use modified firmwares and after they make enough profit, abandons their cart. This leaves users with low compatibility to new games and support for future dsi/3ds firmwares. It's better to get a decent flashcart now than getting stressed over an abandoned clone with minimal support.

    EDIT: as for online retailers, that's not my expertise, so sorry.

    The difference is that first card does not support upgrade to newest console firmware while second does..
    Another card which is fully supported by YWG's WOOD R4 is http://www.r4idsn.com

    Actually the cart she was looking at supports the newest Nintendo 3DS firmware 2.2.0-4 and the www.r4ids.cn does not (the r4ids.cn website lies and they have been contacted since the 13th of this month with no update to their site saying that their card does not support the 2.2.0-4 USA update). I have both of the cards and know for a fact. That card she was looking at, from Amazon is great! :) No Wood support but she can have dual firmware with Retro Game Fan's kernel and Retro updates just as much as Wood and sometimes faster. I say buy it. You will have a great card :D

    So, you are saying that if a buy the R4i SDHC 3DS, I can play back ups on my DS Lite as well as on my 3DS? :)
    Just one more question sorry guys... to bother but well I like how the Wood r4 'feels', and looks like(: Do you think that if I get the R4i SDHC 3DS, I could do something so it looks more like the Wood r4 style? I mean when you turn on your DS it will take you directly to the games, I hope you understand what I mean haha(:

    Absolutely, you can play games on both systems! :D As far as the Wood style goes no, not exactly, but it is extremely similar. You have 3 choices when the r4i-sdhc card boots. They are games/multimedia/ and slot-2. When you choose "a" on the first icon; you go straight to your games. 1 Big difference is there are no global settings with the card at Amazon. This means, you are going to have to apply cheats on or off, dma mode on/off, and soft reset on/off individually for each game in the r4i-sdhc firmware. It's very easy but somewhat annoying but some people like it better. But when you use the Retro Game Fan Kernel in connection with the fore mentioned firmware it will go straight to games and everything else for that matter after selecting the TT-Menu.nds file. It's also very simple. You will know your cards backwards and forwards in a day.

    I edited my post above please re-read it. After you get home from school go here and watch the videos as they are great and they will tell you everything you need to know and you can see the card in action. :D The videos do apply to the R4i-sdhc 3ds card don't be concerned that he doesn't mention it in the video. As you can see he put the videos in the selling section for the R4i-sdhc 3ds card he has for sale. No, I am not the guy in the video but I have ordered from him and the site is legit and fast too, just in case you were wondering.

    I am at school right now LOL Thank you for answer me ^^
    Well to be honest it is not like the Wood r4 style and and I dont like it!): I know I am very anoyying sorry but what if I buy this one? Someone above said it runs Wood r4 with MicroSD cards above 2GB! (: (I do not mind if it does not work on the 3DS, I love playing on my DS Lite haha(: )

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005H8D7PU/ref=redir_mdp_mobile/178-5051052-7518545?ref_=sr_1_1&qid=1321409754&sr=8-1

    Do you think it could be the real R4i Gold 3DS? It says it plays music... haha, but then it says it support Wi-Fi gaming? x3 I am asking because you know like they always upload weird pictures when selling a different product and like the comments specifies that it can play backups (: I am just saying if you think it will work cause if I buy it and it is not the one that can run Wood r4, I won,t blame you!(: LOL and it seems that you have bought from Amazon too before x3

    It's a girl, insidexdeath. Thanks for the help but she knows what you've just told her from a previous post. She likes Amazon so she is looking for cards that they sell. She doesn't want to use Paypal either. Read the thread next time. No offense :)

    I PM'd you first of all. To elaborate though, that is the R4igold.eu flash card. They're not backed by the Wood firmware. It does support wifi gaming...it just means you can still play games like Mario Kart and still be able to use the online play option ("download play" is the terminology that most flash cart companies use.) All r4i cards are real in the effect that you can play backups on them...they just use different kernels...like the Wood kernel. Quite a few flash cards are considered "bad" because of their updates to the firmware and their updates to the kernel. In other words, if Nintendo puts out 1.4.4 on the DSi, "bad" flash cards release a new card and don't update the firmware to support 1.4.4. This, of course, makes you have to spend more money. Also, if the kernel isn't updated you can't play the newest games. You see what I'm getting at? By the way, I know if a card can or can't run the newest Wood firmware, so you could blame me because I will not steer you in the wrong direction :D
