    I tried tu put some FW downloaded from official site on Micro SD but everytime i tried tu run card in my DSi, DSi write "An erro has occured. Press and hold power button to turn system off. Please refer to the Nintendo DSi operations manual for details.".

    I hope you can understand this easily enough....

    I assume that the web address on your sticker on the card is the same as the picture on the link you gave (as in '' )
    Looking at the site, it seems that cards labeled 1.4 are NOT compatible with DSi with firmware 1.4.1

    So, sorry to say - it seems you may not be able to use that card with your new DSi

    It depends on how much you willing to pay

    Most people here recommend either the 'Acekard2i' or the 'DSTwo' (I've had both & can say both work with 1.4.1) but this post shows which card are compatible with 1.4.1, so you can have a look & see what you prefer

    All the carts listed in this post that support the DSi will work on 1.4.1 (you may or may not need to apply the update first, check the store you're buying from to see if they test or update their carts before shipping them out).

    Note that the prices given are from chinese shops.
    If you order from a shop in another country it's more expensive.

    [*]The original R4.
    NOT "R4-III Upgrade", NOT "R4-SDHC", NOT "R4i NDSLL", NOT "R4 Red", NOT "R4 King"...

    The cheap card for somebody that just wants to play games on a DS/Lite.

    [*]R4i Gold
    The cheap card for somebody that wants to play games on a DSi with more storage.

    [*]Acekard 2i
    Mid-range card for people that want to play games on a DSi/XL with some extra features.

    [*]EZ-Flash Vi
    Higher-end card with even more features.

    [*]Supercard DSTwo
    Pretty much the ultimate card right now.

    • DS / DS Lite
      The card will work on an original (fat) DS or a DS Lite.
    • DSi / DSi XL
      The card will work on a DSi or DSi XL as well.
    • Game Updates
      Firmware updates are what let cards play newer games, these are the life-blood of the card.
    • SDHC
      SDHC refers to SD cards larger than 2GB (gigabytes). If there's no SDHC support, you can only use SD cards up to 2GB.
    • WiFi Update
      The Acekard 2i can update it's cheats (and get minor bug fixes) over WiFi without having to connect to a computer.
    • Auto Ap Bypass
      Some carts have special features to ignore AP in most games, letting you play them without having to wait for a firmware update first. The Acekard only has partial support for this right now.
    • RTS
      The Real-Time Save (Save State) function lets you save and reload your game progress at any moment you wish.
    • In-Game Guide
      You can pull up text files and images in-game, in order to check a walkthrough or map you downloaded at any time during a game.
    • Slow Motion
      The card lets you slow down the game speed as you wish.
    • In-Game Cheats
      The card lets you create and modify cheats while the game is running.
    • Special Homebrew
      The card has multiple pieces of special homebrew, such as it's own GBA and SNES emulators, as well as text/PDF reader and video player.
    • Battery Life
      Unfortunately the DSTwo's extra CPU and RAM (which give it the special features) eat into the battery life a bit.

    Directly for a new card, it is recommended that you go to buy at r4wood where there are the latest kernel and I often visit there.

    First off... ALL carts, except the R4 RTS by the M3 Team, are essentially stealing the R4 name to boost sales of FAKE and CLONE cards.
    Second off... ALL sites using the R4 in their name are essentially stealing the R4 name to boost sales of FAKE and CLONE cards.
    Third... A site that uses "wood" in it's name, in reference to WoodR4, is using YellowWoodGoblin's work to boost sales of FAKE and CLONE cards.

    Buy REAL cards from REAL distributors.
    Don't buy from people who are just looking to cash in.
