Well i have already asked questions about this but im still none the wiser so i'm going to try one last time!
I want to get a dsi for my son for xmas but wont if i cant be guaranteed the r4i thingies will work because some say it may, some say it wont., so, my question is does anyone have an dsi and use a r4i or the equivilent? do i have to do anything to my dsi to get it to work or do they work like the r4's?
Also if i buy one how do i get the games on?
sorry but i am thick when it comes to this!
thanks for any help xx

if using a r4i card you download the games from the internet to your pc and transfer them onto a memory card that goes into the r4i card.

I have no clue about the r4i cards, but if your not too sure or if there is doubt on it, might be an idea to get a standard DS Lite, cheaper, play same games, and the r4 cards work perfectly with no problems with them updating the software on the DS Lite to stop the r4i card from working.

they work in exactly the same way as for the ds lite, only probs i heard of is that the cards update when using wifi and knacker the card, dont know if this is all cards or certain ones, sorry i cant be of anymore use

if you buy the dsi and it already has firmware 1.4 on it you will need the new r4i updated card, if the dsi is lower than 1.4 then you can buy any r4i, but if you go on nintendos shop and update the firmware to 1.4 you will render your nonupdated r4i card useless, so the best thing to do is get an dsi and an r4i updated card and this will work, as i have had to do exactly the same thing, i hope all this makes sense, i payed £14.44 from r4i.co.uk and theis included p&p great service very quick, hope this helps you:thumbsup:

HI, sorry to hijack your thread op. I have a DSi 104e and can't get my R4 crads to play. I was told that this version hasn't been 'cracked' yet. Is this right?

Many thanks.
