As title says really, I think theres a new generation of games which dont work with the R4DS or M3 cards. I get the following error

Cannot access save data. Turn off the power and reinsert the DS Card

A quick google shows some hacks, but its all hit and miss. Some people claim the patch works others claim it doesnt. Are there any new cards on the market which work for all games?

Go to r4ds.com and make sure the r4's firmware is upto date.

http://r4ds.cn/download/r4.html

Happened to me the other week, updated and it worked.

yes check the site regularly as they will release new firmwares
#3
The firmware on all these cards is primarily updated to allow compliance with newer games so needs to be regularly updated on an ongoing basis.
#4
i get this on some of the "Imagine" games??? even with latest updates

you were correct, had this myself a couple of months ago, goto rip out the arm7 file from a working game and inject it to the non working game, they say it's a little hit n miss if it will make it work, but ive not had any issues so far:thumbsup:

I had to do this for club penguin (for the nipper not me) really need to order a new card, when was the last M3 firmware?

I had to do this with the newest CycloDS firmware so I just think it's a case of the firmware peeps updating on a more regular basis.

of course I did. Have some rep ;-)

I'd rather order a new card to be honest. The arm7 patching sounds too much hassle.

Haven't read the "Working R4 solution" mentioned, but I do know that the original R4 team dis-banded a while ago, and as such there will be no more official software updates for the R4 (the last version was 1.18 I think and that came out ages ago).

As such, there will be more and more games released in future that won't work on the R4 (unless these other solutions work).

Basically, I think the R4 is considered dated and approaching obselete these days (at least amongst the flash-cart know-it-all community), and that you're better off upgrading to a CycloDS, Edge, DSTT etc. if you want to continue getting official software updates that ensure you can play all the latest games.

fair point. But I'm happy to keep on using the replacement firmware on R4DS until it stops working :-D
