    Bought an R4 card for my son for Christmas. Trying to get it to work is proving to be a nightmare. I just keep getting an error message "Can't open_dsmenu.dat". The device Im using is a 3DSXL with the latest software (10.3.0-28E). I've attached a pic of the card I've bought. I'm using a 16GB micro SD card.
    Am I doing something wrong? Is my card dodgy? Any help would be amazing as I'm just about to lose my mind with this thing!

    Go to the website thats literally printed on the card.
    www.r4isdhc.com.cn

    Is what I would say, it appears the site is down.
    I don't know if I can upload a kernel here, I guess so right?
    It's sitting in my downloads folder right now. (I have exactly the same flashcart)

    Do you have a DS or DSi to test it on? Since you can get it to the "can't open_dsemnu.dat", it's probably not that, though. What does the root of your microsd card look like?
