    I recently bought an R4i to use with a Nintendo 3DS. The card looks exactly like the image above. Well the problem is, the card is not detected at all in my 3DS. If I put the card into my DSi, the card shows up as "Touch! Bomberman Land" and it works perfectly. But in my 3DS, the game doesn't come up at all. It says "There is nothing inserted in the Game Card slot."

    I am currently on Ver. 5.1.0-11U of the 3DS firmware. And I have installed v1.69b of the R4i firmware that I downloaded from r4i-sdhc.com. Anyone out there know what the problem could be?

    I would say with my little experiance you need to update the carts firmware. You have installed just an updated kernal v1.69b. Look for the carts patch version 6 is the latest. Hope this helps in someway.

    Thanks for your help. So my only option will be to get a new card?

    Funnily enough the team at r4i-sdhc.com released a new version of the firmware (1.70b) since I posted that. But when I try to upgrade the firmware using my DSi, the button to start the upgrade is missing.

    His card isn't blocked I know you like to reply to every thread on this site but read the the post properly.

    OP your card has contact issues. It's a great mystery why flash cards are detected in some DSs and not others (again, nothing to do with system updates, contact issues). I suggest getting a DStwo, it's expensive but worth it and you know the support will be there long down the line.

    You're right, my bad. Saw the whole "I installed the firmware" and assumed it was the usual issue people running into of just putting the files on the MicroSD and thinking they're done.

    So can anyone recommend a card for my 3DS? I would hate to buy a new one and have it suffer from the same contact issues. DSTWO sounds nice but it is a bit expensive. But I guess you get what you pay for?
