Anybody want to explain R4 & DS to me
there you go mate have a read - http://www.r4ds.com/product-en.htm
you will also need a micro sd memory card , this holds all your games and fits inside the r4ds .
a 2 gig micro sd memory card should hold 40 - 50 games .
as for the games im not sure if im allowed to tell you where to get em so ill just say google for nintendo ds roms )
Actually, it's permitted. Here's an old thread about it...
thanx for the info mate , i was just being on the safe side )
Not a problem. Why don't you create an aD profile?
Thanks to both of u - new to all this so will read & I'm sure ask more questions
woof811 - all seems too much for me - have a reasonable pc knowledge - but my download skills are as far as limewire. But i have 2 kids that cost me a fortune in games - PS3 & Wii for xmas - after 2 psp last year and a ds. There is a guy at my wifes job charging €100 for the r4 with 20 games - does this sound like robbery? Or is the cost of a r4/sd card & dowloading time make that reasonable??
sorry - one last question - can you suggest a site where to get the r4/sd card
hello mate i thought id explain just how easy it really is , as follows -
first off the r4ds and micro sd memory card you can buy iff your in the uk from here -
international from here -
for international be prepared to wait at least 2 weeks postage as it will be coming from hong kong or china !
these are the websites that have been recommended by most forums and ive used 2 of them addictsupplies and volumerate .
as you can see the r4ds is cheap enough to buy and as for setting up it gets even easier -
1, put the micro sd memory card in the usb card reader and format it to fat16 ( fat ).
2, put the firmware on your micro sd memory card ( latest is v1.12 from here - http://www.r4ds.com/soft/18-en.htm ),when you download the firmware unzip and you will have 2 files and 2 folders , put these on your micro sd memory card and thats it firmware done .
3, put your games on the micro sd memory card , make sure if they are rared up to unrar your games and they are in .nds format .( a r4ds will only play games in .nds format )an excellent website for games here - http://www.dgemu.com/home.html
4, thats it put you micro sd memory card inside your r4ds and put your r4ds in your nintendo ds where you would normally put a game .
5, switch your nintendo ds on and away you go !
ive tried to make it as simple as possible but if you have any more questions just let me know , woof811.
ps. make sure before you buy that any website that has the r4ds in stock because some seem to be running out of stock as its coming christmas !
Great work! I'm sure your efforts are appreciated by the Newbs. Additionally, I have also created a basic guide with a few visual aids. It's under my sig. Please check it out.

hmmmmmmmmm ill say if you have your r4ds , microsd memory card and games i would say you will be able to play your games on your nintendo ds in minutes , that quick to set up mate .
also mate to give you an idea of how easy an r4ds to use i have 4 kids ages 6 - 15 ( bought a television now lol ) and they all have a nintendo ds with a r4ds and can all use them easily enough .
