    Do NOT update the R4-SDHC to 1.27b because it broke my R4.
    It says "Fake card! Please return to retailer." and my card has been put through the fake card checker, and it's real.
    Also when i put it in the PC it says "Please insert a device into F:"
    So i can't access my data [​IMG]

    It destroyed your MircoSD card? or Your R4Clone?

    Have you tried another MircoSD card? On both the card reader and R4 clone?

    Are you sure you used the right firmware for your cart?

    Also when i put it in the PC it says "Please insert a device into F:"
    I've never had this problem even if I put a completely wrong firmware, I can always change it with my card reader and pc.

    I think the best course of action would be to put the old firmware back on ANOTHER MicroSD. See if it works, then if it does, put WAIO or YSMenu onto the MicroSD as a SECONDARY firmware. (.nds file)

    First of all, a topic is only "URGENT!!11" when your cat has swallowed ductape. Try to use a normal topic title, it bugs me alot. [​IMG]

    Also, try to use an older firmware? Since it's not flashing anything to the card, so a card brick seems not very plausible.. (Oh, and try avoiding R4's in the future)

    Have you got another method of reading the microSD? (Phones, cameras, Mp3 Players)

    Well find it and check the MicroSD card. If it shows up on your phone, you need a new MicroSD card reader. If it doesn't, you need a new MicroSD.

    Ok i found out the problem.
    Either my T-Flash or MicroSD stopped working.
    And the fake card thing is just the firmware going crazy cause i registered my R4 on the fake card checker 3 times and they see that as being a fake card if it's entered that many times.
    I just gotta insert the MicroSD in another device and if it works i need a new MicroSD reader.

    Then I guess its safe to "stand down" on your emergency "URGENT!!!" ???? This is why before you panic try different combinations (R4 in another DS, microSD in another R4, using a different card reader, format, etc..) then its just a process of elimination to find the real problem.
