    Hi i have a r4sdhc cartridge with 8gb micro sdhc card. I have put the firmware and games onto the card and it works perfectly if i put it into my friends r4sdhc cartridge it works prfectly , but when i put the little card in my nds it just says loading and then menu(has a little red logo of a sd card with menu printed underneath).Has anyone heard of this???What am i doing wrong. It cant be the formwire thats wrong if its working in another cartridge can it?

    Any one have any experience of these things?

    There are 12 different R4 cards, many with the same or very similar name, you probably have a slightly different card from you friend, go to the site below as they host all the firmawares and see if anything else gets you further.

    It is and it isn't. Your card is a DSTT clone and not a R4 clone, which is why the firmware isn't working. You'll need to install the DSTT firmware on it to get it going BUT make sure it's a DSTT firmware with the clone killer code removed. Have a look in the DSTT section and you should find all the info in there about the clone killer firmwares.

    Can you get the card replaced easily? That would probably be your best bet as then you haven't got to worry about your card getting zapped by using the wrong firmware.

    Try this firmware, it should get you up and running.

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=128510

    It's 1.17 with the fake killer removed so your card will be safe. Where did you get the card from? That way people know to avoid it in case they get a relabled DSTT. Have a read through the DSTT section though, there's loads of info in there about the fake killer in the official firmware.

    I was just wondering about the colour because the official DSTT is white. If it was white it could have just been mislabeled but it sounds like an actual fake being sold as a R4 SDHC. At least they didn't charge you much more than it would cost to get a DSTT. They're like a fiver.
