    You might not have the right firmware. Go to the site listed on your R4's box. To avoid this in future, don't buy a clone next time.

    try backing up your games then format your microSD. I think that will work because I had the same problem before.

    Back up your card and reformat it with this
    http://filetrip.net/f10976-SDFormatter-Version-3-0BETA.html
    Then go to the site printed on the box, download the latest firmware and that should solve your problem.

    If that doesn't work. Then pack it up and buy a new card such as an Acekard 2i, Supercard DStwo, Supercard DSonei, EZ-Flash Vi, and R4i Gold from www.r4ids.cn. All of those have very active teams and are currently the recommend DSi flashcards

    Looks like you have a real r4 clone (as opposed to a dstt clone). You should try wood for r4. It should work for you. If not then we might have other ideas. Let us know on here.

    Good luck.

    Incorrect. R4 Wood does not work on all R4 Clones, only R4i Gold from www.r4ids.cn, R4 1:1, original R4, and M3 Simply.
