R4i SDHC Card

Following the release of the R4i-SDHC card from the R4i-SDHC.com team, it quickly became the number one selling device for the Dsi and Dsi XL consoles, offering users the ability to add previously unimaginable media files for playback on their consoles. With the R4i it is now possible to use your console as a media player just like you would with an iPod or Mp3 player. View our selection of R4i cards above which fully support the latest firmware from Nintendo and come bundled with Micro SD and SDHC memory cards to allow you to store media files for playback on the go.


In 2008 the group responsible for designing the original R4 flashcard disbanded and since then, a large number of flashcards have entered the Nintendo DSi games arena. The R4i flashcard is the newest in this long line of R4 mimics and is by far the only one that stands out among the rest. 

How is the R4i flashcard different?
Well, for starters, the R4i is designed on the AceKard firmware that is one of the best firmwares around - it is similar to the original R4 firmware and is widely compatible. Compare this to most of the other products, that use now-obsolete, hacked firmware, and don't even support firmware updates. In fact, you have to be very careful in buying any of these products, as there is a high possibility that you wind up with a flashcard that can't update its firmware - that too in a situation when five firmware updates have been released since the new R4i release already. Moreover, the R4i flashcard comes at an affordable price unlike its competitors. 

Apart from this, the R4i unleashes the true potential of your Nintendo DSi - combining superior gaming ability with a host of multimedia applications. Note that there are several types among the R4i themselves - R4i SDHC and R4i redbox are just a couple of them. Most users prefer the R4 versions released by the original; however, you have to choose one that suits your tastes and needs. An excellent choice is the R4i Ultra flashcard - about the same size as the original R4, but faster. 

The bottom line is that the R4i flashcard is a must have for every hardcore DS buff - its astounding features, reasonable cost, and easy to use interface being only a few of the factors going in its favor. 

The R4 card provides you with a storage space for your games. There are different versions of the R4i card available with us. These are the R4i and R4ii. Now, the former version is produced for Ds lite and Nintendo Ds, and the latter for Dsi lite. We have stocks of the R4i and the R4ii.

The R4 DS was created to allow you to enhance your entertainment experience with your Nintendo DS or DS Lite console, not just your gaming experience. As the R4 DS was designed for the DS and DS lite consoles it was not compatible with the Nintendo DSi and DSi XL when they were released so the R4 team created the R4i for DSi and DSi XL users.
