    Welcome to the DS/Flashcard Section.:)

    How is the Size from your microSD Card and how is it formatted please ?

    Unfortunately microSD Cards "acting" very strange in these Days.....
    Maybe of "cheaper" Production or whatever,simple some Brands (they are often "Fake Cards") are not really reliable and should be avoided.
    @TurdPooCharger is one of GBAtemp´s leading "Experts" for this Topic.:)

    Good luck and yes,please
    If you be so kind,keep us informed about your SD Card.

    Thank you.:)

    definately a genuine card. bought from tesco and the other one came with my contact phone. both cards no errors on that test.
    should i return the r4? or could it be my ds lite?
