    Never heard of that card r4sdhc.

    R4 card yes but is an old card the firmware is 1.18.

    R4 can't use sdhc memory card that about it.

    It won't break your DS but don't expect it to work well.

    The R4SDHC is not an R4 nor is it an R4-III.

    None of the R4 knockoffs (they aint really clones) that i have tested will work properly with SDHC over 4GB. They reconize an 8GB card, but when filled over 4GB the data over the 4GB mark is not reconized properly.

    This post has a lot of info about the R4 type knockoffs...

    The only one i have ever heard of having issues with bricking a DS is then N5, it has(had?) a faulty MicroSD slot where the pins would eventually contact the motherboard of the N5 after inserting the MicroSD card into the N5 causeing a fuse to blow inside the DS.

    There are def better choices to the R4 knockoffs for those who dont know what card to get, such as the Acekard 2.1

    The R4 type cards i have tried are all still in proper working condition and use a 4GB MicroSD without issues. If you do not expect more then that out of them then there are no issues.
