    The fact that your card is an R4i is enough for us to know that you bought a fake, no R4DS that claims to support DSi or SDHC is legitimate.

    I'm not entirely sure what you're doing, but it sounds like you put the microSD card in a USB adapter, and then the computer can't read it?
    It sounds as though there may be a problem with the USB adapter or the microSD card, but I can't really say.
    But it also kind of sounds like you have a computer problem? I don't know.

    Anyway, when you post in the future, could you please try to post with proper punctuation? It will make reading your posts a lot easier, and in turn make it easier for people to help you. [​IMG]

    Sounds like your MicroSD is corrupted.

    I'd shut down your PC, plug it in, then start up.
    Don't try to access the drive at all.
    Format it with the Panasonic SD Formatter.

    Hopefully that'll work.

    An acekard 2i is a nice cheap cart with high compatibility that will work on DSi.

    Buy from here

    There's a couple of good ones.

    There's the original R4DS, but that won't work on your DSi so I won't bother explaining about it.

    There's the Acekard 2i, GBAtemp's favourite no frills flashcart, it has the AKAIO firmware that boasts near perfect ROM compatibility and some nice internal functions. It works on the DSi and supports SDHC microSDs.
    If you buy one from Shoptemp, be sure to order Premium Flashing and updating service, so that the Acekard arrives ready to work on a 1.4 DSi.
    It's only $15, so it's pretty affordable.

    Then there's the Supercard DStwo, a premium flashcart at $35 that boasts impressive new functions that no other flashcart can offer. It has an integrated processor that enables it to emulate GBA games, offers enhanced real-time functions like real-time saves, cheats and guides, and will soon offer a DivX video player, and a SNES emulator.

    Any of these would be better than buying an R4, unfortunately the original R4 was very good for it's time, but the official brand died long ago. All that remains is a market of imitations, suckling off the well-known R4 brand.

    No problem. [​IMG]

    It's just suspicion, but I get that idea that if you continued using that R4i, it would probably just corrupt your microSD again.
    These R4 clones don't really have quality control, they're mostly just out to get a quick sale by exploiting the R4 brand.
