    The R4 doesn't support microSDHC memorycards. The largest microSD's you're able to use with it are 2GB ones..

    The R4 does not support SDHC (> 4GB, usually 2GB).

    You should've known that when you bought it...

    (Main reason why the R4 is such an outdated but still overpriced card)

    Thats a fake R4 and a firmware update in September will brick your DS. So buy a M3 Real!

    Well um like everyone said, sadly R4DS doesn't take any SDHC cards. I read somewhere that it does take any 4GB card that isn't SDHC, but apparently the game plays kinda choppy, and I haven't seen any of those cards floating around. ._.
    In any case, if you want a flashcard that does take SDHC cards, I'm guessing an M3 Real, Cyclo DS or DSTT would be the best choices for such.

    it was mentioned a billion times, r4 is nonsdhc support, meaning cards 4gb and up wont work on it. Get a ttds or something so your card works!!! [​IMG]

    Well Ill bet my DS there will be a way around this. Everything can be hacked. I had no Idea I had a Fake one until the other day but it works and I have a shit load of media and games and music on it. I really hope someone fixes this cause i dont make enough to get a new R4 or DS for that matter. Fingers crossed

    i spoke to a few people who run retail outlets who in turn talk to the r4 distributors and r4 reps. they told me that no one has heard of any such firmware update that will brick r4 clones. there has been no official announcement to any distributor or warnings of any kind. what you are all so scared about is a bit of internet hype posted on a chinese forum and blown way out of control by all of the misinformed kids who then pass on the information as fact.

    there will be no firmware update on sept 15th.

    enjoy your clone if you like it =)
