    ...its an R4 clone therefore it sucks. Return it and get a SuperCard DSTWO (they come out on the 18th) or an AceKard 2i

    An Acekard 2i has much better game support, and you can get it along with a 2GB card for $22 off of shoptemp.com, which is gbatemp's official sister site/store/thing.

    Acekard 2i and a 4GB card? $26.

    You didn't get a good deal. The only good deal for an R4 is the "original" R4 for $6 on shoptemp because it's confirmed you can use wood on it.

    Actually, to be fair, come to think of it there ARE 1 or 2 R4i-s that are actualy maintained/updated - like the one made by the M3 team.

    Honestly, that cart will do good for a short while, but you might want to get a new one before a major release, or you might be waiting forever for an AP fix.

    The thing is with R4 clones, is even if you say R4i, it may be a clone of the R4, the Acekard, or a DSTT, and even then there are differences between those with different firmwares, so it can be very confusing for people like us to help you with even the simplest problems because we never know whats under the hood of your cart.

    With a mainstream cart we would be able to help you, or better yet, you would be able to search the forums and most likely find your answer without even having to ask [​IMG]
