    Try cleaning the contacts on the R4i cart.

    I'm assuming you did update the card and the dsi as per my advice in your other thread. As Buleste said, try cleaning the contacts on the card, or maybe the paper trick. I dont know if r4's suffer from that though.

    Why not ask some suggestions before getting a flashcard?
    You should not get this garbage card.
    Now, you see what happened to you.

    Maybe you should get a AK2i or r4i gold 3ds(r4ids.cn), which are both cheap.
    Just keep away of this garbage.

    Unfortunately, it is dead. I had one of these and the same thing happened. Your only option is to get a new card like a R4i Gold from r4ids.cn or an Acekard 2i.

    Take a white eraser and use it on the gold contacts on the card. That's what I did with my Acekard 2i after it stopped working, and MicroSD, tested it out, it worked perfectly.

    Find out if the DSi has been updated or anything. Reinstall all the files on the MicroSD. If that doesn't work, the card is fucked.

    take your card to your parents and show them that is no longers works because it was a fake piece of crap. maybe then they will buy you a decent one.
