Don't double post; no need to bump your thread after less than two hours. For one thing, get a better cart. Anything else you can test it in?

i tried it in a friends ds and a friends dsi and its not reading it either. I took all the files off the r4i , formatted it and put them back on again and still is not reading it for some reason.

If it doesn't work in a DS lite either, then you have 2 cases:

1) Your card is bricked. Buy a new one.

2) Your card's shape is not very perfect so it doesn't slide in properly, but considering that you tried sticking a piece of card behind it, then I don't really know.

Being an R4i, I think it's probably bricked.

Pretty sure your card is dead dead.
Buy a new one, but this time spend an hour and read up on the various cards. Read reviews, watch videos and find a REPUTABLE place that doesn't sell fakes.
