Sorry I am not too up on things but my R4 card is getting annoying. It crashes a lot..In game and especially when I put it in sleep mode. I am guessing this is because it is old. I don't want to spend too much but what is the best card I should get now that runs smoothly, and all my saves will easily transfer over. I currently have I wood installed and I still am getting crashes. Thanks in Advance, and if anyone can post a link on a good deal and a reputable dealer that would be awesome. Thanks.

its prob cause its not connecting in the ds properly you could try the paper trick or if you want to get a new card but need spend alot acekard is your best bet, its cheap but has really good compatibility, every game plays on it so far

This is the paper trick, it might help your R4. (Though the picture is of an Acekard)

A good place to buy an acekard is Shoptemp, $16 with reliable free shipping.

Do acekards also have this problem? Do u have a tutorial for that? I dont wanna screw my stuff up.
Acekards are known to sometimes have contact issues, but I had recently ordered one, and found the build quality was much better than the past 2 units I ordered.

A new acekard should be better than your old R4, but another possible issue could be you have a dodgy microSD card.
Try formatting your microSD card with Panasonic SD formatter, remember to backup your data before you format since it'll delete everything.

I actually tried using that Panosonic SD formater, and it was dodgy itself. After I formatted the card it would not read on my PC or my Mac so I had to reformat it again and it worked. It also reformatted and ruined a USB device that was just sitting in my lap top and i lost a ton of information. Weird right?

I think its this coming loose problem because it happens mostly whenever there is some kind of knock like if i drop the ds on my lap or by closing it, and when it happens I turn on the DS and the card does not load..then i take the R4 out and put it back in it works, So I def thought something came loose. That fits.

Is there a tutorial to try the paper thing?
