The software for this is R4 III SDHC Upgrade although it only says "R4 SDHC Upgrade" on the black box.
I got the instructions and software from http://www.R4i.co.uk/r4.
This site also has software for the DSi
The software and instructions are the second ones on the list and the software file is R4_III.zip.
Just copy the moonshell2 and the other 2 file directories to your microSD card root directory after formatting in Fat32.

It works for me !!!

AFAIK, r4 shdc upgrade revolution is not an official card, but one of those crappy clone cards.

Software from the official R4DS site may, but probably won't work since the R4 Revolution never support SHDC.

I purchased a R4 SDHC UPGRADE REVOLUTION and was struggling to get it to work as it had no intructions with it but then i found a guide on the website after messing about for hours downloading and installing different ones and also a free download on the site as well.

I followed it and my card is now working perfectly. the website is www.r4i.co.uk/r4 this should take you to the software and guide download.

There is also one for the R4i SDHC UPGRADE as well. Just thought i'd add this as i had been struggling. Hope this helps

Happy Gaming

I bought a R4-sdhc upgrade Revolution for the Nintendo DS and after 4 hours I finally got it working right. Over the 4 hours, I got every error available. From the packaging it is hard to tell which version I had. The R4i-red kernal worked for me great. The package on these are very misleading and even mine was not red nor did it have an i on it any where. I think I must have tried every kernal at least twice except red. I hope this saves someone else the head ache I got. Randy

Hi guys,
Has anyone managed to get this card working. I am having the same problems as above.
I have an R4 SDHC upgrade revolution card. I am also using a sandisk 4gb microsd card.
I have tried that many different versions of the firmware and none work - the furthest I got was the stuck loading screen. Mostly I get the menu and ? sign.
I am trying to sort out this card for a friend. I have cards for my kids who have a ds lite and a dsi and they both work fine. The micro sd card works fine when i put it in their respective cards.

From my previous msg a few above yours "[url=http://www.r4i.co.uk/r4][/url] this should take you to the software and guide download."

Have you tried this yet? I messed about for hours but this download is from a site that sells the R4 SDHC Upgrade so it should work for you and its FREE. I've got 2 R4 SDHC cards and have used it on both with no problems. Try it and let me know

Thanks for the reply - I did use this site and downloaded both firmwares. None worked.
I think my mate must have bought a dodgy card - he bought it off the internet but not sure from where. Looks like he will buying another one.

Do yourself a favor and don't buy anything with "R4" in the name.

Well i can personally say that if you buy from r4i.com that their software work for their cards and the prices are good. I bought one with a 4gb card the 1st time and an 8gb one a month later and i have no complaints at all. Good value so get from there fella

also ask him what site he got it from as they should supply the software for it so hopefully it should just be a case of just going to the site and downloading their software
