    I just came from the mall, and i bought this R4 revolution.. I guessed it is the oldest one.
    it is the only available r4 there..

    it includes a card reader, t-flash, but no micro sd card...

    anyways i used the memory card I own.. change the current firmware with wood r4 v1.44, because i tried wood before on the same r4 model that i lost and works fine before, but when I try it on my ds, it is stuck to black screen with loading... written on it.

    what should I do???

    the loading screen is been there for bout 10mins now...

    If it's an R4 Original, 1:1 clone or otherwise, you can't use SDHC. That means you have a 2GB limit. If you try to use anything bigger, you're left with a forever loading screen.

    It is not a "fake", it is a 1:1 clone. That means you can only hvae a 2GB microSD maximum for storage (not a microSDHC).

    Actually, that's not true.

    There ARE 4GB MicroSD cards that AREN'T SDHC. However, they're extremely hard to find.

    Telling people to go find a NON-SDHC 4GB microSD is like asking someone get a copy of microsoft bob on floppy discs. It isn't going to happen any time soon.

    I'm not telling them to go find it. I'm just saying that there is one that they CAN go looking for if they really need the extra space without having to carry around 2 Micro SDs.

    It is the same thing, even when you want to justify it by being lazy.
