I just got into the Flash Card community and bought an R4i Gold (because I couldnt find a DSTWO), and it came today. I put it in my ds to see the interface (no SD card) and started it up and it showed a "Konami Digital Systems" icon or the slot-1 slot. I clicked on it and a black screen came up and nothing happened. I put my roommates SD card with some R4 (not R4i gold) stuff on it and it did the same thing. I downloaded the Wood R4i Gold stuff and transferred it to a formatted SD card and now it seems to boot up fine. I hope i did this right and that is all i have to do to set it up, but let me know if anything else needs to get done. My question now is a couple things: 1) I have an original Nintendo DS (the silver one), can i still play 3DS games with the R4i Gold on my original Nintendo DS? 2) How do i set it up to play Gameboy Advanced and Gameboy color games? 3) How do I enable and load cheats? 4) Does the R4i work with internet connectivity (i.e. if i wanted to play mario Kart DS or pokemon black over the internet would it work? thanks!
