    I have bought an r4 card from china and it wont read at all. the trick where you put paper in it to push it closer to the pins doesnt work and ive tried different firmware and still nothing.

    Do you think any of us are psychic? How do you expect anyone to help when you don't even post cart name and website on the cart/box?

    Whats your DS/DSL/DSI/3DS Firmware version?
    You have to be specific.

    Ds Lite haven't got any firmware. So it should work on a Ds-Lite. All i Can say format your card download the firmware. Open it up with win.rar then put in the root of your card.
    Try to see if it boot up on a ds-lite.

    ds lite most certainly does have firmware, however, it is not upgradable. well, unless you count flashme as an upgrade.

    well you need to apply an update to the card

    http://www.ndsill.net/iLL144up.rar

    this will allow it to run on a DSi usings firmare 1.4.4 or below & 3DS's running 4.2.0-9

    u run the update like a game, needs to be done on a DSPhat or a DSLite


    i would run it on your brothers DS Lite while he is asleep or something
    once updated you should be able to sort everything else out on the DSi you have
    (you can delete the update file once you have applied it)
