    Hey,
    I bought a R4I-SDHC R4-Card which should be for the 3DS. Now I downloaded the right firmware
    and copied it to the card. But the Card dont show up if I plug it into my 3DS. The 3DS is on Version 11.4.0-37E

    What is the reason, why it dont show up?

    Best Regards,
    Lushen

    Try putting a piece of paper under it, for better contact.

    Some of the flashcarts for the 3DS had a timebomb (you can read more about it here) on it, are you sure you don't have one of those?

    3 things can be happening:
    - Bad contact/broken reader
    - Patched card
    - It has a B9S Switch

    Timebomb does not work that way. It would still show up, just wouldn't boot to menu.

    Some flashcards have a switch for easy NTRBoot usage.
    And by patched I mean patched by your 3DS FW.

    Okey I saw on the Page of R4I-SDHC that my card only support my 3DS to version 6.3.0-12 is there any way to downgrade my 3DS?

    You have to hack it first. You can do that by using frogminer (totally free and works on latest FW 11.8).

    Just to let you know, when you install CFW, you don't need to downgrade your 3ds to use the flashcart. It should work after installing CFW.

    I just told you how to install CFW. Frogminer (in your case), or NTRBoot compatible flashcard (and way of flashing it), or hardmod.
    Luma is pretty much the most spread, most supported, most used and so on CFW on 3DS. right now.

    Frogminer is an entrypoint by which you can install CFW.
