    i bought the r4i sdhc gold pro from eachmall at the beginning of the year but i have not been able to get it working as yet.

    i have downloaded the kernal file as instructed on the eachmall product page and extracted the files onto a microsd card. when i put the card into my nds lite, 3ds with firmware 6.3 and 3ds xl fw 4.5 i get the red menu error.

    I've gotten some flash cards from Eachmall and the website may say it's a card from xyx but look at the url on the sticker on the cart itself. I've had some with a .in extension or slightly different URL spellings.

    Go to that site and download the appropriate files. That may fix it.

    Download the kernel from the website printed on the bottom of the card.

    maybe you got a clone or a mis-labled card, look at the pictures on the site and see if the correspond to your card
    maybe try some of the other cards firmwares on their site
    http://www.r4isdhc.com/r4-download/
    NVM it looks like they all lead to the same files anyway

    on a side not WTF why do they need to make so many god damn card for the same thing lol, no wonder the R4 (insert random words here) "branding" is becoming such a joke....snoopy version....really???

    Maybe your firmware files are not on the root of the micro SD. Are they unziped and the necessary files placed on the root? Namely, not inside a folder?

    I extracted the contents from the zip file to the root of the micro sd card.
    Code:
    C:\Users\user>dir e:
    Volume in drive E has no label.
    Volume Serial Number is 3249-9158
     
    Directory of E:\
     
    22/01/2014  01:55 PM    <DIR>          R4iMenu
    06/03/2014  09:26 AM          606,208 R4.dat

    22/01/2014  01:55 PM    <DIR>          moonshl2
                  1 File(s)        606,208 bytes
                  3 Dir(s)  15,947,161,600 bytes free
    I even tried the chinese rom, same error. I'm sure others have bought the same flash card, if I'm the only one asking for help on it, then I suspect I would have a faulty flash card.

    I've tested in on the 2 you've highlighted and both works. I haven't stuck it into the 3DSXL fw 4.5 yet.
