    All R4 cards nowadays are clones and there are about a million different ones so it really depends on which one you mean.
    The best one is the R4i Gold from r4ids.cn and pretty much all the other ones are crap. They do however play games fine so if you can get it really cheap (sub-$10) it does the job.

    Is there a way to know which r4 clone you have so you can get the right wood fw? Can I use it in my dsi or will the fw 1.4.5 block it?

    Check the website written on the cartridge to know which cart it is, the website should also say if it's DSi 1.4.5 compatible.

    Retro's files are only a kernel, they won't work as a firmware. You would need to find the latest firmware for your card, flash it and see if that works.

    That's the problem, I have looked and cannot find any for this cart after a dozen or so links.

    The issue is, your card might not have any firmware. My research is pulling up a thread from 2012. If their site has been dead since then, there's no way there could be any firmware that will work on the latest DSi firmware.
    Your best bet is buy a better card, like an R4i Gold, they cheap as crap nowadays and if you get one from http://www.r4ids.cn/, you get offical Wood R4 support and card that works on the latest 3DS/DSi Firmware. Seriously, it's a lot less of a hassle.

    Well I still can go out and get a ds lite which should work fine? I forgot the fw updates on the dsi were to block out flashcarts.

    A DS Lite/Phat will work with any flashcard without hassle
