    Don't use moonshell. And if you have the newest kernal, you don't need to DLDI patch it

    you just run your homebrew from the R4 menu like a game, i create separate folders for homebrew and games just to organise things a bit.

    Moonshell will, however, play your music and videos that are in .dpg format. There's a converter for vids somewhere

    yeah, moonshell will play your media.

    Sorry, you don't need to convert music, that should just work, but videos need to be converted.

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=35547 will help you with converting and stuff

    it also views images. and I see that you mentioned comic book ds in the subtitle for the thread. it is THE BEST homebrew ever if you are a mangahead like me. otherwise... not so much.

    you can find the latest version at http://cbds.free.fr/Softwares/ComicBookDS/?language=en

    to make .cbds files you need picto ds. it is available at http://cbds.free.fr/Softwares/PictoDS/?language=en and is a pc app. I think it's pretty self explanatory.

    p.s. more fun for using mp3 files is the ipod app. It just finds all the mp3 files in your whole micro sd and lists them all. pretty unorganized, but still awesome. I forget what it's called; something like imp-ng blah blah blah. but I think it's in the download section here.

    Hello well got the r4, and I think the latest kernel but having problems, running a few things

    Got the cbds reader, at first it didn't work properly so I DLDI patched it then it worked, got the comics off the website (the heroes series) used pictods to convert to cbds put it in the comic reader file and.. now the cbds loads but there are no thumbnails, it sees the comics (1/20, is this to much?) and just spends a long time with this message 'opening 1/20' and nothing else happens, am I putting to many comics on it? the heroes ones seem pretty small (only 7pages each so 20= 140page comic) should be able to handle it.. ive got a 2gig card with about 300mb free..

    also got the latest version of moonshell but having trouble running the movies converted in batchdpg, where do you put them on the card? the root directory? games? Ive now got it in the moonshell and cant see anything.

    Can anyone help?

    cheers [​IMG]

    I haven't have a problem with CBDS on the latest firmware, I didn't patch it, it just ran.
    You can put those movies anywhere you want, you can browse through and select them when you boot into moonshell.
