    Hi guys,

    I just got this r4i deluxe for my nephew as a Christmas present and wanted to load a game on a microSD for him so he can start playing tomorrow but I can't seem to be able to make it work.

    Here is what I did:

    1) Downloaded WOOD R4 V1.64 from the r4ids.cn website and copied the files into a microSD card
    2) Downloaded Firmware 3.0 and put the Launcher.dat file on the root of a SD card
    3) Put the microSD into the blue card; did the "3DS Setup" step
    4) Put the SD card into the 3DS SD card slot
    4) Clicked on Settings > Other Settings > Profile > Nintendo DS profile

    ... I get a message that says "An error has occurred, forcing the system to close. The system will now restart"

    I think that's when things went sour. I click on OK to restart, change the blue card for the white one (with a microSD card containing a game) and the DS won't recognize it. I only get a "There is no card inserted into the game slot" error.

    Putting a real game in works, which makes me think the 3DS was not in "gold" mode.

    I have tried everything (changing SD, microSD, using firmware 2.0, etc.) and nothing seems to work!

    PLEASE HELP!!

    3DS would not show that message if it went in "Gold/Gateway" mode. What firmware is your 3DS?
