    Get a fresh copy of the _DS_MENU.DAT, and delete the old _DS_MENU.SYS file

    you can download firmware on the site go to downloads and keep going till you find it or you could format your sd and re-download everything

    yeah, use 7Zip. Not only does it do RAR Files, but does loads others.

    I have the same problem, but mine is slitly different: it works ONCE, if i shut down the DS then I reopen it, it freezes on the loading screen. I did the same steps as Another World, but still have the same problem. Is there any way to make it work or is there a custom R4DS kernel for it?

    mac has an app called stuffit, i think its still freeware. stuffit will do zip and rar last i checked. (or only zip =/). anyways if the format of the archive is a problem, tell me what format you can extract and i will just upload the firmware for you.

    @Doom Chaos: take your r4 out, blow, and put it back in. sometimes it just doesn't make contact. mine use to freeze up on the loading screen alot until i used some compressed air in slot1 to clean it out. sometimes its just the flash kit not making contact and nothing else is wrong with it at all. if you are having contact issues a custom firmware isn't going to help that.
