    I recently got one of these and have only used the most recent English firmware from the site you linked. It's never had a problem. It works fine on my DSi XL.
    On a sidenote, though this is compatible with DSi 1.4 firmware, it seems to be one of the poorest flash carts there is in terms of compatibility with games and alternative firmware.

    You should reformat the memory card using Panasonic SD Formatter (http://filetrip.net/f10976-SDFormatter-Version-3-0BETA.html) and then decompress the files in the firmware .RAR file onto the cleanly formatted card. Then you can put your roms & savs back in the root directory of the memory card, and it should work fine.

    Try the firmware from www.r4-pro.com.
    There seems to be a few different versions of this clone of clones [​IMG]
