    Hello everyone. When I purchased my R4 I didn't know the difference between real or fake, so I ended up with this exact card: http://www.tradeinthebox.com/blog/r4-sdhcwifi-upgrade-revolution-for-ndsndsl/
    Basically on and off I can get the card to work, but here lately I've only been able to get as far as booting it up. I can go to moonshell and config but when I try viewing the Games section, it always freezes. Only when I have a NDS game in it though. Without one, it works just fine and shows moonshell. Why is it doing this? Is there a certain place I should go to find the correct firmware? When I go to the site on the sticker the closest thing I can find to my card is one that is similar, but does not have the WiFi logo above R4. Any help would be greatly appreciated. When I save up the money I plan on getting a DSTwo, I'd just like a temporary fix until then, ya know? Thanks!

    2 things to try

    1. Format the SD card - this often solves issues.

    2. Use
    RetroGameFan's mod of ysmenu
    . It replaces the firmware, but is much quicker and more compatible. I highly recommend it!
