    Is there a difference between *.*.nds and *.*.7z (unless that is like a .rar). I'm using a R4 if that helps. Thanks

    yes,
    a .nds file is bootable through the flash card,
    a .7z is a compressed file and isn't bootable.

    so to sum up, to play nds homebrew or roms, use .nds files because they are all that work. unless you go into gameboy advance etc.

    See that hole in your wall?
    7z is an archive format (like zip and rar). Winrar is able to open it.
