    And I can't seem to get past the loading screen. I've looked online and so far there are multiple reasons this could be happening. I've tried most of the solutions I can.

    Here's what I have: http://www.eachmall.me/goods-2527.html

    8gb Micro SD HC
    Regular DS.

    I don't know if my R4 is 100% legit or not. I've also read that using an SD HC card doesn't work, and I've also read that it doesn't work with micro sd cards over 2gb.

    I'm still up for ordering whatever I need, I just want to know if:
    A. I can fix it before I order anything else
    B. What exactly I need to buy (Whether it be in terms of a Micro SD card or a new R4 card)
    C. Where to order said products

    I can provide more information if needed, just ask. Thanks for your time.

    They were right in that the original R4 and 1:1 copies (which that almost certainly is) do not support SDHC. So you need an MicroSD that's 2GB or less. Don't order it from a cheap shop online if you can avoid it.

    You can get a different one that does support SDHC and use the 8GB on it too, though.

    It indeed doesn't work with cards over 2GB, so if you're using the 8GB it won't get past the loading screen, Sorry =\

    That R4 only works with MicroSD cards that goes up to 2gb max.
