Post pictures of the card (Preferably high-quality pictures if you can.)
When did you get it?
Is the rubber coating on the battery yellow or orange?
What's written on the battery?

Summary of EZ Flash IV Wiki:
First in or Not Enough Power

This issue refers to the EZ IV's SRAM and can mean one of three things:
A) The internal battery is not charged.
B) The internal battery is dead, or not soldered properly, or otherwise has no connection
C) The SRAM hasn't been initialised.

You should only see this error once. After an initial charge of the internal battery, by either leaving your NDS on for a few hours with the EZ Flash IV inserted, or by plugging the EZ4 into an EZ I, II, or III linker for the same period of time this issue should no longer occur.

If charging the NDS with the EZ Flash IV inserted doesn't fix your problem, then contact your vendor for further instructions. You may have to return your cart, as it could be faulty.

Extended Information:
There has been a history of batteries not being soldered correctly to the circuit board, meaning that the battery is just not connected. It may be possible to fix this error by resoldering it to the board. But be warned, this does violate your warranty, and it is recommended that you call the vendor first!

To Trouble Shoot the battery connection:
After doing the above steps use a Voltage Meter on the two pins of the battery (Red to Positive and Black to Negative) If there is not a 3 volt voltage read on your Voltage Meter then the battery needs to be replaced. The battery you need to make the replacement is a Panasonic VL2020 (3volt, 20mAh button cell battery with vertical soldering pins). They are available online for about two dollars at Mouser Electronics. If the battery has a charge and your experiencing the "first in or not enough power" issue then you need to solder one or both pins to the circuit board, making a solid connection.

    also gonna install twilight menu in my r4 flashcard
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    it says it only works for the original R4, R4i Gold (r4ids.cn), R4iDSN (r4idsn.com) and Acekard R.P.G.

    Just give it a try, but honestly if you have a 3DS you can play DS games without a card just off the internal SD card
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Slightly slower loading but a bit more convenient
