    I have recently purchased an R4, after formatting my TF card and dragging the zipped files and folder to the root I then draggged some game sto a game folder I created. Power on the DS and go to the .NDS the game menu loads. I select a game and the follwing window populates on the touch screen: FIle info: Not support ext.7Z

    Anyone ever get this before? I have uninstalled and reinstalled everything onthe TF card several times and have still have been unsuccessful. Any light someone could shed would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    No, they don't ... you have to unzip them ... use a program like WinRAR ...

    So a little recap in info for those who think they lost.
    Most of the files you can find for you r4/m3 etc.... are in zip/rar/ or whatever format.
    Those format are a compressed format of the original file, some pgm can load a zip/rar/ace/7z format,
    other not.(The reason is simple, they have to buy a license to include this format in the pgm).
    Or other do not pay and someday they will know why they shouldn't had done that.

    So as long as this pgm do not support the compressed format, you will have to unzip this file.
    Just double click on the compressed file, then a window will open and from there you have to
    drag you file on the desktop or in an other directory.And after that you have to drag this file
    again on your sd card.I know it s much to click and with the time you will have the incredible Hulk

    Oh yeah i almost forget, you have the zip pgm intergrated in windows xp but like most of the windows
    pgm (burning pgm), it sucks.
    (Long wait time for nothing, an a pain in the a** when you have a brandnew pc)
    Just goggle for winzip/winrar/winace
    Good luck
