    It's a fake.
    You mean you can't make Wood R4 work?

    The R4 team never made anything else with R4 in the name other than the "R4".
    If there's anything else in the name, it's a knockoff/clone/whatever.

    Go to the site printed on the card and use the firmware there.

    Not real brahski. What games you trying? You're card is a clone/fake, but the games might not even be compatible. In other words, your card might be terribly outdated.

    On a sidenote: HOW MANY FREAKING CLONES ARE THERE?! I knew there was a bunch, but it's like each day, I'm seeing different R4's, it's ridiculous!

    I have tried a lot of games, including the new Pokemon and Dragon Quest 9 and it's either black screen or it says Application Halted.
    gaahh i so pissed, put my last money that i have saved for a while, and bought a shit that does not even work, miserable, hmm okay well i just have to
    continue to pretend to play when my parents ask if its work
    (They bought a DSLite to me if I saved to a flash card itself)

    40 pounds? Total ripoff.

    You can get an Acekard 2i from shoptemp.com for $16 USD that's a hell of a lot better and plays all games.

    Oh I'm sure I'll regret this, but before I say what I'm going to say, wait a couple days to see if anybody thinks of a fix for you. From what I can tell, you got ripped off for a hunk of junk. Have you tried finding hacks/patches for your games?

    Lesson: Research about the product before you buy it! [​IMG]

    ---
    Try searching more info about your flashcart in Google and see if a miracle happens [​IMG]
    Edit: Oh sorry >.

    I think I might be able to help you out if your R4 turns out to be just another DSTT clone.

    Can you post a picture of the menu when you open it?
    Looking at the UI of the flashcart can help... [​IMG]

    hmm, tough luck mate, fakes are like the pest under the good cards. Lot's of R4's on the market aren't real, since it has been very popular in the past.

    Is there a website on the box? Most likely you will find your software there, since it looks like it really got a site on it.

    On a side note: Many clones AREN'T able to play games like Dragon quest 9 or Pkmn Black/white, or even anything that is new. You should get it to work with the older games first. Games like mario cart.

    If that works, you may want to switch to YSmenu, a detailed tutorial can actually be found on this website, how to set it up etc.

    Good luck [​IMG]
