    Ok, a few years back I bought a R4. It was a clone, but SDHC.

    Simple right? WRONG.

    I have no idea what is wrong/going on with my card. It does not use SDHC firmware (http://www.r4sdhc.com/down.asp#r4), and it it uses the official(?) firmware for R4(http://www.r4ds.me/). Now, I am so lost I can't even begin to explain. I've read around the forums for clarity, and I just got more confused. Apparently the clone I have is a TTDS clone (however, I've read in posts that SDHC cannot use YSMenu, which uses TTDS), and to further that I've read that there are even more then one type of r4 SDHC.

    My card looks exactly like the one in this picture - http://www.r4sdhc.com/images/r4.jpg - but cannot run the firmware from that website. Am I doing something wrong?

    Also, in a post in this section it says there is a Wood R.P.G that can run on SDHC r4 cards. And in that same post people say that the original Wood R.P.G YWG made can run on r4 SDHC cards anyways. Though, I tested it on mine and it doesn't.

    pl0x can someone explain this to me?

    I just checked the box, the link is http://www.r4sdhc.com/. Though, my card -cannot- run any SDHC firmware. it has to run on the official firmware or after the loading screen I get two black screens.

    I've used YSauto before, and tried following the guide but no other firmware seems to want to work on my card. I don't know what's wrong with it, maybe I'll just wait for more Wood R.P.G clone fixes, to see if I can find one that works.

    Since my SDHC card uses official firmware, shouldn't the normal Wood R.P.G work for it?

    Actually, it seems on the r4 wood firmware, my homebrew games work but the commercial ones don't. If that info helps any.

    The URL on the box brings me to a site with a firmware that simply does not want to work on my card.
