    I've had probably every problem under the sun, but this is new.

    For whatever reason, I can only play one Rom.

    If I want to change it, I have to reformat the TF and put a different ROM.

    I tried it with Metroid Prime, and it worked.

    I added Dragon Ball Z, and that worked, but Metroid didn't.

    Why is this?

    I'm betting it's the SD.

    I bought it on Ebay, and it looked legit because of the Kingston packaging, but when I got it, it was taped to a small piece of cardboard.

    well that sounds super legit. Have you checked the size? and if so does it correspond to the "card" you were sold?

    Keep in mind this appears to be a flashcart that plays DS games, NOT one that plays 3DS games.

    Is this the same card/problem posted in your other thread yesterday? http://gbatemp.net/threads/r4i-3ds-gold-rom-corruption-problem.358300/#post-4839240

    if so it should probably not become a new one. i think the advice there is correct you need to try another microsd reader first buddy and test that.

    You're right. These flashcard names are confusing. My bad.

    i had a dstwo and i never should have gotten rid of it. Great card. GBA emulation was pretty good i miss not being able to play Metroid Fusion and Zelda The Minish Cap on my 3ds. I wish nintendo would bring the gba ambassador games to the eshop.

    They should, Minish Cap is my third favourite Zelda.

    I'm getting my free R4i soon, so I can try it with a new reader and flashcart.

    Right now, I can only play Metroid Prime Hunters. It will do for now, the multiplayer in that game is fantastic!
