    EDIT:

    TOPICS SO FAR...


    Q - Dodgy kernel download on the R4DS webiste, the folder was there yet nothing was in it.
    A - I chose 'worldwide' download and prob fixed.

    Q - What actual file of the unzipped rom package do you need?
    A - Just the .NDS

    Q - Skins? Do i get them working on the DS, or by doing things via the PC.
    A - still coming...

    another Q:

    How many games can i get on a 2gb card?

    I thought about 40, yet looks i am wrong,

    26 was too much for it...

    That really depends how big the roms are

    if you had 128 MB roms you could fit 16 or if you have 8 MB roms you could fit 256:P

    Edit:most roms are around 32-64 MB so you ccould fit mabye 50 on average?

    try trimming them then

    i personally dont use trimming, as sometimes trimming them messes up some roms

    having a bad time here,

    instructions seemed so easy...

    Downloaded English v1.11 folder from r4, unzipped it, and there doesn't seem to be the normal files in there mentioned on youtube vids and on other posts on here...

    Anyway, put this folder onto my r4, with a rom - and things doesn't start, get a black screen mentioning a missing folder.

    what an ass, is there something wrong with their download?

    Used the older version loaded onto the cd and it worked perfectly...

    Try redownload it then. Something might have gone wrong during transfer

    can't believe all the research and such i had done before getting the thing, only to have a disastrous time making it work when it finally arrived...

    anyway, i shall try download the English v1.11 again...

    When I got my R4 back in April, I was up and running with it within 10 mins of it arriving in the post. It's so easy to figure out.

    you're a hero.

    well, i re downloaded it, and this time there were more files.

    so weird when things like that happen, only when you really want to get something to work!!!

    anyway, now i have to get the old version off, and put this new version on,

    is it simply a matter of dragging it on, or should i delete the old files first?

    Cheers.

    the R4 is yet not very easy for some to use hopefully if i ever get it then it should not cause any prob but with the shortage gonna take time
