    You would need an emulator, and roms.
    Google is your friends since linking roms is not allowed on this site.

    This one might work http://www.lolsnes.com/
    I gave away my R4 a long time ago, but to use emulators on flashcarts, you just boot the .nds like it's a retail game, and then the emulator will have access to the micro SD card so you can load the SNES rom inside the emulator.

    I don't know. Other emulators are found here http://gamebrew.org/wiki/List_of_DS_homebrew_emulators and you can read info about them when you click them so you can find out what each emulator offers.

    SNES emulation on R4 is really bad. Don't expect too many games to work. (Especially Starfox.) BlargSNES is probably better at emulating SNES than the R4, and BlargSNES can't play too many games either.

    I kinda figured that because I couldn't remember if GBA emulation was horrible for me or if it was SNES. Maybe it was both :rofl2:

    Ah, yep I remember. Good thing they work pretty good on 3DS homebrew now :)
    @Owaishakir if you have a 3DS that has access to the Homebrew Launcher, it's better to just use that.
    Use your R4 card soley for regular homebrew and games because emulation is sub par.

    Yeah. For o3DS use BlargSNES. For N3DS use a Retroarch SNES emulator. GBA is only good when injected.
