    hello. I recently purchased a R4 SDHC card, just realized they are actually fakes...however, I've heard that it is still possible to get them working.

    I am using a Sandisk 4 GB MicroSDHC card, and a new DS Lite. I installed the latest firmware (v 1.25) on the card.

    However, when I insert the card into slot 1 of the DS it won't recognize it, simply saying "there is no gamepak inserted"

    Can this problem be resolved? plz help...thank you [​IMG]

    dont you know there is no sdhc version of the r4
    there must be some dust in your slot
    try cleaning it with a earbud
    if it still doesnt work your fault its a fake

    If its not seeing thecard at all, try the paper shim trick - put a piece of folded paper or thin card behind the R4 to push it onto the contacts of the DS

    Thank you Kitty. Your advice helped...especially after I put a folded piece of paper in first. Previously I inserted the R$ card first...I don't really know why this did the trick, but if it helps anyone, try it.

    thanks again [​IMG]

    It works because the paper--although thin--manages to push the card forward making the contacts meet which is required for any cartridge to work.

    You fool they're ALL fake now. Real R4s died about a year ago. We all know they're fakes [​IMG]
