    I have an unknown brand R4i card from a friend. It is Gold and has R4i Revolution for DS in black letters on the front. My DSi is ver. 1.4.5u, what exact files do I need to download if I am starting from scratch? And also, how do I get them from the micro SD card to the R4i card to the actual DS? I am new to this whole thing :/

    The website when the cart is in the DS is called

    www.r4-pro.com

    It is no longer a thing I am afraid.

    bad card, no update for it are going to happen
    buy a new one

    pay extra for a good card like the Supercard DS Two

    here is the Kernel Files you need
    linfoxdomain.com/nintendo/ds/dl.php/R4-Pro_v1.4_English.rar
    place the contents of the "English" onto the root of the MicroSD

    you card will not work on a DSi 1.4.5 ever tho

    from what i can find the last DSi firmware it was able to work on was 1.4.3
    so either you require a DSPhat or DSLite (wont be blocked on those consoles)
    or buy a new card
