    What format does micro sd have to be? also, how do I set it up, do I need to update any firmware?
    I have the R4 from realhotstuff. Please help me figure out how to get it working with latest games. Thanks.

    Since this is already here I have a small question. Do I have to make my own .sav files or will it do it automatically?

    As soon as you start a game a save file will be created, and you're welcome.
