    When I input my r4 into my Ds and open it the Ds then says Cannot find _DS_MENU.DAT
    For one I don't know what that is and the second why doesn't it work, I've checked youtube videos and it worked right of the bat so why won't it work like other peoples R4

    Have you put the firmware on the card, the site in my signature hosts all the firmwares - you do need to get the right one (of the 23 available). Unzip it on to the card, then try.
