you need to firstly download R4DS V 1.18 and also R4SDHC V1.25 English.Follow this link
http://linfoxdomain.com/nintendo/ds/

Then set up your R4 card as normal using the R4DS V 1.18.
After doing this extract all the info from R4SDHC V 1.25 into the root directory ( extract directly to the drive letter).Say yes to all when asked about replacing files.When you have done this it will work just fine.
Both my boys using them now with no problems
Took me a while to sort out as only ever bought original R4 cards and not these SDHC ones but once you get the right info on they work fine.
Please post to let me know how you get on

not all firmware versions work (that you manage to dowload at microspeed) but sdhc version 1.21 seems to work everytime

thanks for the reply but got it working shortly after my original post using firmware version 1.22 works like a dream now and have since bought three more for friends

i think the problem with the r4ds now is that there are that many copies , fakes and clones all with different firmware that it makes it so frustrating to set up .

personally i wouldnt buy any of the different versions of r4ds , i would rather buy one of the more supported flashcarts ie m3ds real , cyclods evo , supercard sd one , acekard or edge ds .

they all have regular firmware updates , very good build quality and support sdhc memory .

ps. in the past ive bought at least 30 original r4ds for friends and family but sadly they arent supported now as the last original firmware was v1.18 months ago .

you've just got to make sure you use the firmware from the site that's on the sticker of the r4 sdhc. other sites won't work
