    Hey, I just got my R4ds, and it worked fine for the first couple of tries. Then all of a sudden the message "THE HARDWARE IS NOT COMPATIBLE" showed up.

    I've tried reformatting the microSD card, deleting everything and starting over, downloading the English, French, Korean, and Chinese Kernels off the website and trying them each separately, and using all of the system kernels off of the CD that came with it.

    I've taken the cartridge out and put it back in and out but still to no avail.

    WHAT DO I DO? any help would be great.

    Wild guess, but maybe one of the connections that tells the cart which cart it is broke, and now you've got an M3 Simply.
