It's because the R4 is old and outdated. You can either Arm swap the games using something like DSLazy or install YSMenu to get round it.

Your firmware is out of date. You will have to apply an ARM7 patch to all the offending games or switch to a better firmware.

I recommend YSMenu.

Reason your R4 has save problems is due to it been out of date, probably fake and no longer supported!

There are a load of games in the last few months that don't work on the R4 (any version) due to save issues mostly but are usually playable with an arm7 fix or using the ysmenu available for the R4 which is a homebrew type os for amongst other cards the R4 and has better compatability with newer games.

But firstly make sure tou have the last official R4 update which is 1.18 and available on the download section, if its a fake/clone then look for that firmware also here.

EDIT: beaten to it, my fault for been so long thinkng what to write!

You can pay in £ sterling at Deal Extreme using paypal or credit/debit card it will convert it automatically for you ..pay pal is the easiest way

Trust me you save a fortune buying from Deal Extreme in the conversion rates

Although being in Hong Kong it takes upto 2 weeks to arrive but the savings more than make up for the wait!

You can still use the mem card that's with your R4 and keep the R4 as a spare or do what most of us do pass it on to a family member that isn't bothered about the latest top games ... there are still crap loads of good games that STILL WORK on the R4

for exchange rates or currency conversions ....use a website such as XE.com to convert the prices or a handy Firefox plugin called CHANGE this will convert when you set the to and from currency's from the drop down in the menu bar and then highlight right click the price and choose convert it will show the conversions in the page next to the original price in whatever currency you want to convert
