    Hi :yaynds: (sorry if there already is a thread for this)
    I just found my old R4 card for my DS XL (bought around 2008). My dad got it from a friend, and I have close to zero experience with these sort of things. I'd love to learn though.
    When I found the card I knew it wouldn't work, as it hasn't for the past five(?) years or so. The attachment shows the card I have. It used to work just fine, until I had to change the date to the wrong date to make it work, and some time later it stopped working completely. It says it can't find the card, which only happens with that card and not my other games. I tried my brothers card (same one) and the ds registered it but only brings me to a black screen and tells me an error has occurred and asks me to turn the device off.
    What could be wrong, and how do I fix it? If I have buy a new R4 card that's completely fine, I'm just unsure which one. If there is something I would have to update or something like that, I would love to learn how to do it.

    I don't have my DS in front of me right now, but if you need any information about it, just ask (and optionally where I would find it :))

    Yes it's called a shitty Chinese clone with a time bomb and shitty Rom compatability so best to buy new better cart

    Technically, all new R4s are considered cloned.

    Try using NTR-Launcher

    No need to be so rude. I can act just as rude back to you.

    Sadly, shadow is right. You are better off with the card he linked. It’s a great card and it’ll definitely support a high capacity micro sd card. I have the same card and it works between my dsi xl, 2ds xl, and nds lite. I even used it to hack my 2ds xl.
