    Get a new flashcart. and stay away from the r4i name
    just get the flashcart the r4i gold ( shoptemp should make a link on the word r4i gold that will lead to the proper r4.
    this is reccomened because it supports work which is best.

    Try a different microSD to see if you get the same results.

    Ditch R4 all together.

    Get a Supercard DSTwo or an Acekard.
    Then spread the world to your fellow R4 fiends that R4 is bad.

    Nah, it's likely the sd card. What did you use to format the sd card? Never use the built-in formatter, use the panasonic sd formatter. Also ensure you have the latest kernel of your cart.

    I'm using many R4i cards and I noticed that the problems only occurs with shitty microsd cards.
    Do not make backup faulty kernel files to the HDD, backup save files only but they can be corrupted too.
    You should do full (erase) format with panasonic, download and paste new kernel files to the msd.

    Get a different flashcard.
    Acekard 2i or DSTwo.

    It will solve all of your problems.
