Hi There

I'm hoping someone on here can help me out please?  I bought my son a new Nintendo DSi XL (as someone stole his DSi with R4 card in it) and just purchased a new R4i Card. 

I've formatted the SD card and downloaded the correct files for the R4i but when I insert it into the DSi and I tap on the Star Wars Alliance I get a black screen saying 'An error has ocurred. Press and hold the POWER button to turn the system off.  Please refer to teh Nintendo DSi Operations Manual for Details'. 

The card I'm using is an R4i SDHC Upgrade Revolution V1.4.  Can anyone advise what I'm doing wrong?  I had no problems with the last R4i card I had for my son's old DSi.  I bought the card from Xpertron and have followed their instructions to the letter but no joy Ermm.  

Many thanks in advance.

Fiona

I have the same problem with a new DSi console I just bought yesterday.

I got a R4i SDHC Upgrade Revolution V1.4 card

Extracted and Copy all files version R4i v1.25b from http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/downloade.asp to my SD card

Insert the card into the DSi and I tap on the Star Wars Alliance I get a black screen saying 'An error has occurred. Press and hold the POWER button to turn the system off.  Please refer to teh Nintendo DSi Operations Manual for Details'.

 

I have tried this different times formatting the card and still no joy

 

Will it be a faulty cartridge or Nintendo has upgraded their firmware so that latest firmware R4i v1.25b doesn't work?

 

Thanks a million

have you tried formatting the micro SD card to FAT32 with the size allocation set to default?

Many Thanks

I have tried formatting the sd card with formatting tool I downloaded from http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/downloade.asp

I’ll try tonight to format it with my PC using the defaults and I let you know.

I even thought it could be the new DSi console but I just bought a new game and it works fine

Formating the card doesn't work


This is the reason why  R4i SDHC doesn't work

A new console upgrade 1.4.1E has been released which doesn't co-operate with adapters that are version 1.4.

See here

Hope there is a fix soon

this is quite right.  The new Nintendo software release 1.4.1 is blocking these DS cards from working.


I believe they are looking for a fix now,  not sure if a new card will be needed or if a new kernel update will fix it


Many Thanks
