    So I got a R4I SDHC 3DS, went to the website (http://r4i-sdhc.com/indexe.asp) and downloaded the latest update, V1.75b.

    I formatted the card and added the files in. When I insert it into my 3DS and launch the card, I get a blackscreen with the error:

    "An error has occurred. Press and hold the POWER Button to turn the system off."

    3DS Firmware: V3.6.0-12U

    What does the front of the card say?

    If it's not the RTS version it will not work on the 6.3 update. If it is the RTS version, then they did not upgrade the card's firmware so you will have to do that manually on a lower firmware.

    I have the same card. Does it say something next to the "R4 3DS"?

    Nothing at all. Just R4 3DS. Above R4 is the WiFi symbol.

    Then you need to get a new card. I have the exact same one, it stopped working on 4.5.

    I would recommend a DSTwo.

    So there is no way for this card to work?

    Nope, hardware limitations.
