    Hi Everyone,

    The first question basically is: "Can my card run on the 3DS, and if so - how?"

    I have an R4I-SDHC, which shows version "1.4" in the shiny yellow sticker. What I'm wondering is, can this be used with a 3DS? Do you need more info to determine this?

    I'm not looking to run 3DS games, just normal DS games, if that makes any difference.

    Thank you if anyone can help :-)

    What website is on the card?

    Also, it doesn't matter if you would've wanted to run 3DS games or not because they can't be run on ANYTHING. Period.

    Alrighty. Your card can run on the 3DS but you might need to update it if it doesn't already. To do so, you'll need some sort of DS system the card still works on (All DS Phat/DS Lite systems will work, DSi/3DS depends).

    Once you determine that, go here: http://r4i-sdhc.com/downloade.asp and download the language of your choice and put it on your SD card and follow the instructions below the download. Then your card will work just fine.

    Thanks all for your responses!

    Okay so I downloaded the files, and extracted them to the root (moonmeno/moonshl2/R4iMenu/R4.dat). When I go to update, it does not give me the update option, only the current version. When I go to options, and 'update' I get:

    "To enable upgrade feature again, please restore "R4iMenu/flash.r4i" file.

    What am I missing here? Sorry for being entirely dumb in this regard.

    Have you checked to see if the file is there? Try extracting it again.

    What version number does it give you?

    I'm not entirely sure I'm using the right files.

    Looking at this site, my card doesn't seem to support 1.59b (If I'm reading it right, and I hope I am not!). I think mine is the one with "1.11C" as the latest. I have a feeling this card isn't compatible with 3DS :-( Mine has "1.4" as the version, no ".1 or .2" or anything after it.

    Ah whoops. Didn't see the 1.4 part. Yeah your card doesn't support the 3DS unfortunately.
