Which game, firmware version and flashcard/emulator? These errors occur mostly due to Anti-Piracy so an update or patch is necessary.

i have the same problem on my card and trying to play the same games.   i was reading on separate boards that this error is due to new security measures for games being issued for DSi systems.

heard that the new R4i card with V1.4 symbol using the latest firmware (1.13b issued 3days ago) tackles that error.

i have an old R4 card and was thinking of buying the R4i card.    If you have the R4i card and have the new firm ware can you pls post if it fixes the problem?

much appreciated before i spend for a card.

just tried it I have R4isdhc with 1.13b firmware and no it does not work same error message.
However, if you look at their website the third generation game card has just been released which appears to support these games. Can't find anyone selling them yet, may be a bit soon I think.

This might work before you install the firmware.......backup first (of course).....reformat your sd card ,then add your games back one or two at a time,it happend to work for me when i had that problem with my R4.....

good luck

for those who Ysmenu is not working, go and erase the TTmenu and the Ysmenu firmware, seek the firmware that has an Xbox360 background its the one thats actually working, and also decompress the unofficial TTmenu,  now you should see several .dat or similar items (r4patch, etc.) those items drag them inside the TTmenu folder, now move the Ysmenu .nds app to the root of the Sd card and do the same for the TTmenu folder, now it should run the game, in case not remove from the TTmenu folder the items you placed inside

Hi, I have purchased a new R4 (R4i) running firmware 1.17. I am getting this error message with a couple of games however there is more to the story.

The game in question is "Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing". Howver when I loaded this game onto the card last night it worked just fine. Today however, having reformatted the SD card and installing the same firmware, the game no longer works (load rom errcode = -4).

Any further advise as to whats going on??

No games with errcode=-4 have been fixed for R4.

They will NEVER be fixed.

Not unless we riot and kill people first.

errrrrrrrr, FAIL

about 6 hours after posting my friends at r4i-sdhc released v1.18b of there R4 formware, fixinf the very issue I raised....

Not that I'm disputing the lack of newR4 firmware, not trying to start an argument, just sharing what I have experianced, and also as I'm in contact with the guys at r4i-sdhc, they confirm they are working on an update for a few other ROMS I've mentioned to then (errcode=-7 & errcode=-4 ones)

@ gragrayson - point of note while I am using an R4i card, it is in a DSL so is technichally just running in R4 mode, dunno if this means the firmware will work with plain R4's or not, just sharing my info...

What does it say on the box of your R4i card, there should be a web address, where you should be able to get updates...

if yours is r4i-sdhc, v1.18b can be found here. This firmware is known to work with S&S-ASR, both US and EUR versions (I have played both myself on a standard NDSL with my r4i-sdhc)
