R4i SDHC Card

The R4i card works exactly like the R4 Card and slots into the slot 1 where you previously would have insert DSi or DSi XL games cartridges. Before purchasing an R4i Card you should decide on what type is most suitable for your needs. Obviously the larger the card the more you can store, most users are happy with 4GB Micro SDHC which we offer bundled with the R4i Card. All our R4i cards support the latest Micro SDHC cards which allow you store up to 32GB easily enough for your whole media library. 

Without a memory card the R4i SDHC Card is useless as it will not be able to store any files so it is recommended that you have Micro SD memory card ready or you purchase one from us here. About the size of a traditional phone SIM card the Micro SD is tiny and you can connect it to your PC using the supplied memory card reader which slots into the USB port usually located on the front of your PC.

The great this about the R4i Card is the constant updates from the R4i team, these ensure your DSi and DSi XL console always works with the Nintendo firmware and you can continue using your R4i.
