    Try your previous firmware. Does it work when you use the previous firmware?
    Can't 100% say so, but I've heard some R4i SDHC's won't work with V1.25b
    If that fails, get an Acekard 2i.

    DSi enhanced games, yes but without the enhanced DSi features. This also means that you cannot play DSi exclusive games.

    Make sure you buy Acekard 2i if you want it to be DSi compatible.

    If you're gonna get a new flash, why not get the best..a supercard DSTWO
    acekard is good but it's getting old..

    that's it, because it's pricy??
    for what you get with the dstwo..it's cheap

    an extra $20 will not break the bank

    I got something from there a couple of weeks back - my order came in about a week and a half. Don't worry about it.

    You can, and I would recommend it, but you can do it yourself if you want as long as you have another DS Phat/Lite in your possession. But as I said, I recommend getting the flashing service.
