    It has to be a R4i 3DS Gold Deluxe on a 3DS with 4.5.

    Did you get the DELUXE card? If you only have one card, you ordered the DS flashcart which can't play 3DS games. You should have 2 cards.

    EDIT: Too late, oh well.

    Leave it to clones to make things more complicated than they should be.

    Do you have a 3DS with firmware 4.5.0-10? If so, one of these: Gateway 3DS

    No, I updated to 7.1.0-14U since i thought i bought the correct card. Can I still use this card to play DS games ( .nds files)?

    I just tested with DS games (NDS) and that works fine. little relief. I did not want to disappoint my son... I have to shop for the 3ds DELUXE card. any better place to buy?

    The deluxe card only works on firmware 4.1-4.5. If you're any higher than that you can't play 3DS games right now.

    If what you said above is true, don't even bother looking for a flashcard to play 3DS games they only work on 4.1-4.5 firmware.
