    The card is right, the R4i is fake, so go back to where you bought it and get the Acekard 2i.

    40 Euro for a fake. [​IMG]

    Send it back and demand a refund. Seriously, flashcarts shouldn't cost that much, even with a microsd.

    If you're not in any rush get an acekard from dealextreme as another poster mentioned. They're based in Asia but will ship worldwide. They also accept Paypal. Shipping is a tad slow though...

    I brought it back, got my money back ( [​IMG] )

    The guy which sold it reffered me to this site: www.mp3server.org (oh and probably the site is dutch) and he said i probably downloaded the wrong software, and the software would be on that site.
    i don't know that site and i've got no idea if i can trust it [​IMG] anyone recognises it?

    My R4i-SDHC (red box) works flawlessly so far. Runs NDS and homebrew perfectly, and emulators nearly perfectly (best I've seen them run on a DS). There are lots of crap R4 cards out there now so you need to be cautious and make sure you're getting the right one, but I can confirm that this particular one works quite well in my DS Lite, and last I saw, it was down to $12 on DealExtreme.
