    I'm assuming you have an R4i

    First, you will need to find out the website associated with your card, and then check if the website has an update file to allow your R4i to operate on your DSi's firmware.

    No Because:
    Your card has its current version on it.

    That update might be for a newer card.

    So its up to date.

    Probably because they only bothered updating it for the 3DS and didn't check DSi compatibility (the DSi runs on different software and has it's own updates) since the 3DS is more popular.

    Ok this card was last updated in 2012.

    your Dsi was probably updated after this time so its block on your DSi.

    I believe its this site.. http://www.r4igold.cc

    Click it you will see what I mean. they make a card update it a few times, then bring out new cards so they can make even more money.
