    2 original R4, both work on the first NDS lite but both do not work on the 2nd NDS lite (that is the NDS does not see them).

    I did try to use the latest OS 1.18. No good. Tried using a piece of paper to ensure the card is well inserted - nothing. Original cards work well with that NDS lite.

    Help!!! any ideas?

    Are you sure it is original?

    Yes, also the both R4 work on the other same NDS lite, but not on this one. Original cards work fine.

    Seems like Nintendo has shipped out a whole supply of new DS Lites that disable the use of R4's due to their desgin. Hmmmm.

    It is not a new DS Lite, in fact it is about a year old. Is there another option (not R4) in the market that may work with that DS Lite?

    I tried a few layers and many layers but still the one DS lite cannot see the R4 card while the other does, and that DS can run non-R4 cards without any issues.

    Maybbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbe?

    And define working? Does it go to the loading screen and just stop working? Does it outright fail to be detected by the DS?

    And if flashcarts have been broken by the newest batch of lites, news would be out by now.

    Okkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk?

    I actualluy think the pins inside are not straight therefore bad contact, somehow it just affecting my R4. I will try fixing and will let everyone know. Tnxxxxx.
