    I just recently found my old card lying around in my cabinet and decided to try and start playing it again, but I'm having problems.

    I just formatted it with the recommended Panasonic formatter, doing the full format on a 2GB Micro SD.

    I got the latest firmware, 1.51b, which works with the latest DSi update.

    I put my Games folder with the games I wanted in the root directory.

    I started up my DSi, pressed the game icon to turn on the R4i, and I keep getting this error message; "An error has occured. Press and hold the power button to turn the system off. Please see the Nintendo DSi Operations Manual for help troubleshooting."

    I've tried putting alcohol on the contacts in my 2 year old DSi, and my 2(approx) year old R4i Card, and nothing has helped.

    r4i-sdhc i assume from firmware version

    it means you DSi have been updated but you flashcard is not available to work

    depending on teh flashcard from the R4i-SDHC you might be able to update to get it working
    (labled 1.4.1 or above on it if you can)

    someone said they updated their 1.4 from www.r4i-sdhc.com just the other day Pong and, of course Garchomp. You need the 1.51b firmware but make sure you grab the download from below the update instructions, the second box of downloads....where it shows a slideshow of carts with one being a picture of your cart. And of course, you need to get your hands on a DS Lite for 3 minutes. And your cart will be compatible with 1.4.3 firmware.

    **Update** R4i-sdhc website say 1.4 card can be updated to 1.4.3 (use this info for future reference)
