The R4 card was released to work with the DS and DS lite consoles and quickly became a huge success, becoming the number one selling DS accessory on the market. However the Nintendo DSi and DSi XL consoles replaced the DS consoles and they rendered the R4 useless with these consoles, that was until the R4i-SDHC team released the R4i SDHC card which offered full support for the DSi/ DSi XL consoles.

Although the process is not that complicated, installing and setting up the R4 card can be a little difficult for users who are not familiar with the device.

Thus, before setting up your card on the console, you need to get the firmware ready and working properly. The latest version of the firmware is accessible via the RD 4S website, and once you’ve selected the file to download, save it on your hard drive.

Save files onto card – First, you’ve got to format the card. Insert it into the USB port and format it. Use FAT32 file system for formatting. When that’s done, copy the downloaded files onto the formatted card. They are usually four files, but you can copy other files as well, such as ‘.mp3s’ and ‘.nds’, among others. Setting up the cartridge to work with the card – When the files have been copied to the card, you can now slot the card into the Nintendo DS console. To do this, remove card from card reader and slot it into the cartridge; you can then insert the cartridge into the console’s first slot (slot-1).

Start the console – Now that you have the firmware installed and the cartridge set up, you can power the Nintendo DS console. You will tell that everything is working fine when the message ‘Loading’ displays on screen. If this isn’t the case, then the files weren’t properly copied, and you’d be better off starting the whole process again. Otherwise the R4DS is ready for use if the message displays fine. The only thing left is to select games and play away. Note that you can also download games to your card if the memory allows. After going through this simple process, it becomes easier to do it all over again with another card. The process isn’t technical at all and need not any particular skills.
