    I need help with getting this flashcart to work. It was working well for awhile, but then it stopped working on the 3DS. I then resorted to playing on the DS/DSI which worked for a bit, but then it wouldn't play any games.

    Then I heard all this talk about Wood R4 and tried to install it, but no go, it simply doesn't work, or I installed it wrong/used the wrong firmware. Eventually I decided to do a clean format of the SD card with the SD formatter tool from Panasonic, then I put my games back in, and then installed R4i-3DS V1.79b, which I got from their website. Menu worked and everything, but as soon as I start playing game it gives the error "save file not founded (yes, it said exactly that typo :P)".

    Now I'm at a loss.If anyone knows how to fix the error, I'd be grateful for any help :)

    First of all, install the NEWEST firmware. If the error keeps on popping up, perhaps try using a save file that can be downloaded on internet? And if it's really necessarily I can also provide empty save files for certain games. :)

    I used http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/downloade.asp (version 1.79b) Shouldn't that be the latest firmware?

    I don't think the save files are the problem. I've tried a bunch of random ones from different games (that has worked in the past and haven't been touched) and they all yield the same error.
