  1. Card not detected

    Posted by Anonymous customer on 9th Apr 2018

    I tried original ds, DSi, and 3ds, the card is not recognized. How can I fix this? Also is it possible to update without having the blue adapter?
    this chip has been out of production for 5 years. No other way to fix. Recommend to get a new r4 card.

  2. Where is the best place to buy this product

    Posted by Anonymous customer on 5th Jul 2017

    I Would like to buy this exact product for my new 3ds XL. But when I looked I realized that this item is out of stock. Where do you think is the best place for me to get the R4i gold plus. I would also like to have a 16 GB SanDisk memory.
    It has been out of production for many years, not available now.

  3. good compatibility

    Posted by Anonymous customer on 11th Mar 2016

    Compatible firmaware V10.5
    Since december 2013, has passed all 3DS firmware upgarde, without any problem
    It should compatible with 10.6 too

  4. it won't show on the home screen

    Posted by Anonymous customer on 16th Apr 2015

    i've just set mine up with the instructions, and it doesn't show up on my 3ds or dsi XL. why is this?
    Just clean the metal contact bars of your r4, it is dirty to detect the card.

  5. Not enough compatibility for "new" games

    Posted by Anonymous customer on 12th Apr 2014

    So I purchased the gold plus and so excited to try it out, but unfortunately, most of my games which worked on my wood r4 (for my ds lite) with the latest wood kernel, don't work on the gold plus with their latest karnal.. I'm going to try if I can install the wood kernel on my new gold plus, if not, I'll probably order the gold rts (if no mistaken, I believe I can use it with wood kernel right?)
    For this r4i gold plus card, you can use YSMenu updated by RetroGameFan so that you can enjoy new ds games. And this r4i gold plus is not compatible with wood kernel.

  6. Quick question..

    Posted by David on 3rd Apr 2014

    So I am very curious that which one would you recommend, R4 Gold and R4 Gold Plus? I want to play NDS games on my 3DS XL which I bought in US (most of the NDS games I play are from Asia.. if that matters). Thank you so much!
    R4 Gold is enough

  7. Is it broken?

    Posted by Anonymous customer on 22nd Sep 2013

    This started happening recently but suddenly the 3DS will not recognize the r4i. I would update the firmware with the blue card writer and it would work again. Recently, when the 3DS no longer recognized the card, I tried to update it with the blue firmware writer but it won't light up when plugged into the computer. Is the card broken?
    The card won't work in a regular DS either. It shows that no card is inserted on both consoles.
    Open the shell of cartridge, find a rubber to clean the metal pins, then flash it with that blue writer. Sometimes, plug into a mobile power adapter is better.

  8. Broken?

    Posted by Maarten on 26th Aug 2013

    Bought a card worked very fine until it wasn't recognized anymore by an 3ds. Bought a new one did an update to the latest firmware 3ds started up gave a fatal error and now this card is broken too. Any options??
    Do you have that blue firmware writer ? If yes, install both kernel 2.2 and firmware patch 3.0 (deluxe one) into your memory card, connect memory card, firmware writer to your computer usb port till its flashes stop and light in blue. Then you can use it again on your 3ds.

  9. Then where do I purchase it

    Posted by Anonymous customer on 4th Aug 2013

    I'm willing to pay again from you but if it doesn't go through I don't know what to say... Please help me I need to purchase one soon and also not from that alie website because it's making me pay shipping so please help me solve this issue
    You can also try n3dscart.com, there you choose 95gateway. If your payment does not go through either, you have to search other sellers.

  10. MY ORDER NUMBER IS #201308018

    Posted by Anonymous customer on 3rd Aug 2013

    okay if the usa wont work then the link you link me to like alie or something was willing to pay me a shipping feee and it didnt look identical i wanted to buy from this website due to the fact my cousin bought it from here for his child and he said it was perfect now when its me you dont accept it or something goes wrong i would like to purchase it from here im very disappointed that i cant and your making me to go a random website to purchase it
    Thanks for your trust to r4wood.com, but all your payments of order #20130818, 20130835 and 20130836 are declined for a kind of 2007_high risk which is feedback from bank. Currently the payment service we are using increases risk control (Cybersourse), which declines many transactions. While transaction to our store Broconsole is under Escrow USA audit, they have different risk policy/tech.
