    the r4i gold 3ds (from r4ids.cn) also has wood support, if that's what you want. The only difference is that r4 aren't compatible with micro SDHC (4-32gb capacity) while r4i gold 3ds (from r4ids.cn) are.

    EDIT: ninja'd

    Since I was ninja'd I shall explain you what the wood fw is: It's an unofficial firmware for the original r4 and some clones which boosts compatibility and delivers a more feature rich/beautiful GUI. YellowWoodGoblin is the dev of wood r4; thank him for all of his work.

    Yes, the "root" is the base folder.

    This is what you want to put in that root folder:

    [​IMG]
    The first two items, anyway. Ignore the 3rd and 4th items.(autotrun and R4Wood -- skip those)

    The root of an SD card, is like you click "removable Disk G" then without going in any folders that's the root right?

    imho buy a second card primarily the acekard 2i if you are budget oriented or the dstwo if you want to be able to do lots more. I own an R4 and actually only purchased it for novelty reasons. I never have inserted it into a console. And it is an original R4 so it is many years old.

    Yes; it should say G:\ when you click the address bar.
