R4 Card Tips

Back when the first gameboy was released by Nintendo games were limited to those published by Nintendo, of which they were limited. Many expected this to be the same when the Nintendo DS console was released in 2004. However, the software and hardware that came with the DS allowed modification and opened up a huge range of options to console users. The flashcard played a large part in this allowing you to view pictures, listen to music and even watch movies, all on the go of course.

Depending on which console you are using you will need a different version of the R4 Card DS. The Nintendo Ds and DS lite console users need to use the R4 Card DS or R4 Card SDHC which was the first flashcard released for the DS. The R4i is designed for the Nintendo DSi and DSi XL console users and was released after the R4 Card DS, building on the huge success of that card and offering some new advances in technology. It is also fully backwards compatible should you want to use this with the DS or DS lite console. With the R4 Card or R4i you can access a whole library of media files or play homebrew games, which can be found across the net for download. With the R4 Card cards you can open up a whole new world of possibilities on your DS or DSi console and experience the true power of your console, this is the reason why the R4 Card is the number one selling accessory for the Nintendo DS console.

R4i Card

The R4i Card is the second release of the r4 card, aimed at Nintendo dsi and dsi xl console users. It features all the great traits that made the R4 the success it is with many more improvements in user interface and speed. A great feature of the R4i Card is that it is completely backwards compatible with the Nintendo DS and Ds lite console, meaning there is no need to purchase two cards if you have more than one console, you can simply use the R4i card with both. What the R4i is so popular for is its support for the latest firmware updates from Nintendo, this is thanks to the constant development from the R4i team and bringing us new and improved features that vastly enhance the gaming experience on the R4i card.

Lately the R4i Card has seen some great improvements as it has been adapted to work with the latest firmware from Nintendo. With the R4i Card you can not only add a Micro SD or SDHC memory card to the DSi console, but also to the newer DSi XL consoles. With support or the latest firmware from Nintendo you need not worry about having to keep track of what firmware your console is running or if you will need to upgrade/ downgrade your firmware, everything will work just fine.

R4i SDHC 3DS Card

With the release of the Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL consoles a new card was needed, the creators of the R4i-SDHC card were the first to offer their services and released the R4i SDHC 3DS or R4 3DS as it is also known. With this card users can now experience the benefits of their R4 or R4i but now on the 3DS.

There are other cards that have since been released to work with the 3DS console but none offer the support and constant updates that the R4i 3DS does, the R4i-SDHC.com team who manufacture the card have years of experience when it comes to these cards and as a result are able to provide second to none updates to ensure their cards continue working with the latest updates from Nintendo. It is also worth noting that the R4i SDHC 3DS works with all previous consoles such as the DS and DSi so really is a superb all round solution, no wonder it is set to become the best selling R4 device.
Just like the R4 or R4i you will need a memory card to playback files on your R4 3DS and we offer many bundles with cards included already.
