    Hi!
    First off I'll start by saying I'm not all that computer savvy, so please bare with :)
    I own an R4i RTS 3DS card from www.r4i-sdhc.com, and I own a 3ds XL.
    I purchased an SD card, formatted it to FAT32. After downloading the latest kernel, unzipping it and putting the files onto the SD card I then created a new folder called games. I placed a few games in .nds format that I had already downloaded in this folder.
    From this point as far as I can tell the R4 should work - it comes up on the home screen as 'Bomberman Land' and when I open it, it loads up the menu.
    From the menu, I select the 'games' option - this is where the problem is. If I press to play any game - or even the 'moon' file, the whole thing freezes. At this point nothing will work - none of the buttons or options, and I have to return to the home screen and try again.
    NOTE - If i scroll down to a game and press 'start' a new screen appears that reads
    'errcode =81, errcode=83
    SD card fragment error! Backup SD card then perform full format with Panasonic SD Formatter'
    After realising this, I downloaded Panasonic SD Formatter, ran the programme and re installed the programme onto the SD card, but the problem still persists.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Try putting the .nds files in the root of the SD Card just to see if it works.
