    you cant?
    download the roms. they come as .nds files
    did you download .sav files by accident?

    .nds = Actual games

    is it possible you are actually browsing your r4 card in wrong mode eq where it just displays the save files? pressing select when in the browse menu will toggle between game /ebook /save and files mode

    You can't convert .sav into .nds because they are save files. If you are asking for a "rom/nds link" we can't give any. You might just have it as "view .sav mode" so in the menu, press select untill you get # games.

    You'll have to google then for the page to find .nds roms. Do not ask for rom links and sites. Make sure you have extensions enabled to see if they are .sav or .nds on your computer.

    Have you made sure that they are .nds? They should show up in GAMES if they are. Be sure that they are .nds on your computer.(EX: Name.nds) It is possible that it will not show up because file extensions are disabled. To enable, follow these instructions: http://s134084144.onlinehome.us/gilsmethod...eextensions.gif

    Then go check your MicroSD if they are ending in .nds.

    A .zip file is something you have to extract with 7Zip, WinRar, or Winzip. I prefer to use 7Zip.
    7-Zip
    Just right click or double click and extract archine.
    Btw: Please quit double posting.
