    Just copy the firmware, onto the microSD card, as per the instructions that come with the firmware, and you'll be good to go.

    Did you extract the firmware straight on to the microSD card? Or onto your PC, then copy it over?

    Make sure that the _system_ folder _DS_Menu.dat and .sys is in the root of the SD card

    the root of the card just means onto the card itself, and not into a folder on the card.

    Do you have a folder on your card now called English, or something similar?

    If so, go into that folder, cut all the files & folders inside it, and paste them out side the folder.

    Is it an archive called English, that is on your card?

    If so, just extract it where it is, and you should be okay.

    archive means the file of yours that english1.17.rar .you must extract that english1.17.rar then copy the files to the root of your card. the files should be the _system_ folder, _DS_MENU.DAT , _DS_MENU.SYS and the _MSHL_.NDS and moonshl folder. then your good to go.

    Did you get the english1.17.rar file ryt? Right click on that file then choose extract. Then those files will be on a folder English1.17 then right click then click send to your micro sd then your done.
