Recently, some people met the problems that when they insert their r4i 3ds card into the 3ds console, the screen shows “menu” with a SD card icon (just like the the following pic). Then this article will tell you how to slove the problem. Actually, this”menu” message usually means the r4i 3ds card can’t read the kernel inside the SD card. Here i will use the r4i sdhc 3ds card as an example, you can directly buy preflashed r4i sdhc 3ds card from us and we will test every card before sending them out.
This situation usually may be casue by the following 3 reasons:
1. The connection between micro sd card and r4i sdhc 3ds rts is not well. Go to check it.
2. You may download the wrong firmware or set up incorrectly. For example, for r4i sdhc 3ds rts card, you should download the latest kernel now which is v1.79b to computer. Then unzip the patch, you will get 4 files: “moonmemo”, “moonshl2” ,”R4iMenu” and “R4.dat”. Copy the 4 files to the root directory of MicroSD card. Download some Nintendo DS games to the MicroSD card.
3. There is something wrong with your sd card. Try to formate the micro sd card or change another micro sd card , then install the right wood kernel again. At last make sure you insert it well into r4i sdhc 3ds rts card. Usually you can simply use the 2 GB and 4GB.
Sometimes the problem can be solved by these 3 methods, if still not working, maybe you have a bad card and should change a new one.
