    Hi everyone,

    Today I got the following product : http://www.oz3ds.com/product.php?id_product=28
    I have attempted to get the card to run on my 3DS XL (version 8.1.0-19 ) and on my DS Lite and it works on neither. When the card is put in comes up with a game with a bunch of japanese followed by Konami Digital Entertainment. This is on both systems, however upon opening the card, I am greeted by a black screen (or sometimes a white screen for a moment followed by a black screen)

    I have downloaded the latest kernel from http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/downloade.asp and also put Wood_R4 v 1.62 on the card but no luck.

    The micro SD card is also fine as I have taken it from an old R4 card (and formatted it) which worked perfectly on the DS Lite.

    Can anyone offer any advice?

    Thanks

    I have an issue as well. I installed the Wood 1.64 just fine and it worked but when I try to run a game I get a white screen. I have the R4i Gold 3DS card. Some of the roms don't even have icons they just have a question mark next to them.

    I had the issue with the question marks as well. I couldn't get over it until I put on less games than I wanted to and then it worked.

    That sounds like an issue with the sd card. I'm curious, what size / brand / filesystem / class was the sd card? Do you guys have multiple sd cards you could test with?

    Hadn't heard of this question mark issue before, but I found this when google searching for "r4i gold 3ds question marks" and it seems to pretty much confirm it's most likely an issue with the sd card.

    Well I am using a 32 gig micro sd card and a 4 gig micro sd card (both different makes but can't remember which ones) but it did happen with both of them. I had to cut down to about 30 games though I haven't tried to put on anymore games. I hope this helps.
