    I just borrowed an R4 from one of my friends 'cause his SD card died somehow and I had a spare laying around so I figured I'd give it a try, I've been looking around for a bit but I cannot for the life of me figure out if there's anything special I need to do (like directories / subdirectories / whatnot) to put stuff on my SD card. If someone could give me a short walk through or give me a link of an in depth guide of how to set up the data on my SD card it'd be much appreciated.

    thanks, I think I found what info I needed.

    one last question, I downloaded the latest kernel (or whatever it's supposed to be called) and unarchived it to my SD card. Since I chose the English version, I'm supposing that I need the contents of the "English" folder in the root directory instead of the "English" folder itself in the root directory, am I correct in supposing so?

    Yes, move everything in the English folder to the root of your card. Also check out my signature for a fixed version of the R4DS loader/firmware if you plan on using cheats at all. [​IMG]

    R4 doesn't support any SD cards bigger than 2 gigs or SDHC cards, so that may be your problem (as it was mine)
