    First, what is your 3ds firmware version, R4 model and CFW(including its version)
    Also, what FW are you using on your r4, are you using any r4 launcher?
    Also, have you ever patched your TWL firm?

    Does the game cart icon appears when you insert the r4 cart? If no then make sure you have proper files (some folders and dat files) added to micro sd card from their site as well. An empty micro sd card with just .nds files won't work. Also the micro sd card should be formatted as FAT32.

    AFAIK the Luma 3DS CFW patches the TWL firm directly without actually modifying any files. If you had previously had TWL patched using some guide then probably that is causing issue.

    oh.
    so that's the reason it doesn't work.
    follow this steps here to unpatch it, as patched twl firm will give a conflict and refuse to work with your card
    https://github.com/AuroraWright/Lum...stalled-a-patched-agbtwl-firm-cia-in-the-past
    it should work then

    Try some other games. DS games are not region locked. Sonic Rush for eg. is small size game, give that a try. I'm sure you know that 3ds games don't work on ds flashcarts like r4 you have.

    First of all, your English is good.
    It could be that the r4 firmware is outdated and that it doesn't correctly support more than 8GB card maybe because they never tested it. Chinese branded ds flashcarts (ironically they are not original R4 company yet name all R4 with extra works like Gold, Silver, etc) are just one time manufacturing tested with no promises on updates to bug fixes. They make, they sell, done.
