    You need to install the R4 software. Come on, Google could have told you that.

    Have you unpacked all the needed files in the root of your sd card?

    Edit : You need to put the files in the .rar file, that are in the map English (or whatever language you downloaded), in the root.

    Yes, you download the file to the root of your card (not into any folders)
    and then extract it, and leave the files as they are _ds_menu.dat needs to be in to root.
    So thats everything

    Hope I helped!
