    I am a newbie with the Nintendo scene.
    I am trying to get some games working for my son but at times i get an error:
    R4i load rom errcode =-4
    or the game would say card not present. Any idea how i may solve this problem?

    I'm not familiar with your actual cartridge, but with a name like that there isn't a doubt in my mind it's a knockoff/clone/fake.
    The result being that it probably has poor/nonexistent support of the newer games and possibly poor build quality as well as it doesn't appear to always recognize the microSD?

    I'd recommend you consider replacing the flashcart you got with something that has a lot more information available on these forums and elsewhere, and is known to work with DSi/DSi XL and receive updates in case of flashcart-blocking updates to the DSi firmware.

    GBAtemp has reviews of the Acekard 2i and Supercard DStwo which are the most highly recommended to DSi & DSi XL owners. I used an Acekard 2i myself but plan to get a DStwo as well sometime this fall/winter.

    edit: I am also on a DSi XL

    It sounds as though you went and bought one of the lamest DSTT clones on the market.
    The DSTT is not a good flashcart and it is frequently cloned and relabelled.

    If you want something for your son to use on a DSi XL, yous hould get an Acekard 2i or a DSTwo like exangel said, don't waste your time with the clone you bought, although sadly you already wasted money.

    DSTWO is $35.00 but it has SNES/GBA emulation, real time saving, real time cheats, text walkthrough, slowdown.

    Acekard 2i is $15.00 which has great support and works on everything.

    Those two cards are arguably the best cards available today. The prices I mentioned were shoptemp prices though... which is the recommended site for.. well.. this site..

    are you on their latest firmware? that might fix some of the games.
