    Why cant you download it?

    I used my R4 with a macbook successfully for a year.

    Calm down & explain your problem properly & maybe someone can help.

    No flashcarts come with mem cards unless you buy a bundle with a mem card included.

    its like this, i'm using a mirco sd card as i didnt have a memory card that came with my R4, so i decided to test the card. When i put games in it , put it in my DS, turn it on, it said " could not find DS_MENU_DATA" so i decided to come here to try finding that data. i think i found it, and when i did, i downloaded it and it came as a binary file. i tried to put that in my DS and the same message came up " could not find DS_MENU_DATA"
    so i dont know what to do as i dont think i can get the data as most things are exclusive to windows.

    You are *supposed* to be using a micro sd card. what else would you be using? a pen and paper?

    downloading the firmware and paste to your card has nothing to do with the os you're using
    make sure you have a real r4 also the latest offical firmware is 1.18

    I think Benjamin is failing at unzipping the file before putting it on the memory card. Someone that knows how to use a mac should explain it.
