    Btw, I ordered a r4+ 3ds, from r4ds dot cn, and it doesn't work. At all. Not 3ds nor ds. The cartridge has red text color. So for those ppl looking forward to play nnk on 3ds, my advice is get a different card.

    Does your r4 work with other games, or not at all ?

    you are sure it's r4ds.cn ? not r4ids.cn ? there's no shop on r4ds.cn
    r4ids website is usually selling good and working devices.
    could you take a screenshot of your card or box?

    testing other games like Aenkyn asked is a good way to verify if the problem is the card or only this game not working with the card.

    when you say it doesn't work ... "At all", what do you mean ? the card is not even detected by the console? it's detected but not seing games? it's seing games but they don't launch ? they launch but crash ?
    please, be very specific when you say something doesn't work, or else it looks like the problem is because you don't understand how it works and you didn't setup or use it properly. (like putting zip compressed games and expecting the card to work, it's not the card's fault and it's normal it's not working "at all")

    Very odd. I got mine from nds-card.com and it arrived in under two weeks, runs the game and every other I've thrown at it like a charm. Did you download and load all necessary files to run on it?

    it works not at all. I mean I placed my R4 memory card (both working on DS) into the R4i card, and same black screen.

    Guys, this isn't the R4 support forum.

    If you have issues with your R4, just ask on that thread and I'm sure there'll be a lot of competent people willing to help you.

    I moved the messages to a new thread as it's not related exclusively to NiNoKuni, so it has nothing to do in that translation thread.

    I don't have _DS_MSHL.dat
    It shows _rpg and _DS_MENU.DAT r4s.

    Well I bought the ware for nnk exclusivelym, to play on my 3dsxl while commuting ;-)

    The "R4i SDHC" is not completely dead, it does show a rotating image of something japanese with Konami Entertainment under it, when inserted into 3dsxl, and when i unplug it the icon changes to something else. So the R4 is recognized, however it don't seem to be able to recognize its micro sd card.

    I do have a fully working r4ds with 2gb card in it, and it has r4 firmware but that card only runs on DS, it doesn't run the spanish rom, for some reason, but it does run 256mb games (forgot the titles), it may be a 512mb thing. The R4ds card does not work at all on my 3ds.

    IF the symptoms are familiar to you please tell me how to fix. TIA!
