    A rar file just holds the game inside. Use a program like WINRAR or 7ZIP to unzip them. R4 can't play rar files.

    No rars, no zips, no 7z, only uncompressed roms.

    I always unzip the ROMs before i play them.

    I doubt you can play without unzipping.
    Is there a free .Rar unzipper? I have to winzip trial, but it is going to run out soon, and i dont want it to. Any advice?

    7ZIP is a nice freeware.

    You can still unzip files, you just can't make new archives. I've used a trial that expired years ago just fine for that.

    DSCompress is a homebrew which was on the GBAtemp news a day or two ago that can compress/extract your rom on your DS
