    I think you need to DLDI patch it...? But are there even patches so it can access the computer?

    Patch it with the R4 DLDI file, then select the appropriate option in the Options menu. It should then treat the folder where the *.nds file is located as the root folder of a microSD card on an R4.

    simple enough dont know why i had such a problem!

    for anyone else who might stumble upon this heres exactly how i ran it....

    - made a folder to use as storage
    - in folder put:
    comicbookds.nds
    cbds folder with theme, cbds files and .ini
    iDeaS.exe
    - then patched comicbookds.nds with r4 DLDI
    - went to file->properties in iDeaS and selected r4 DLDI

    thanks again!
