How do you get the r4ds menu?
Do you have to download software for R4DS?
How do you play movies on R4DS?
First, you'll need to have MoonShell, which is already included with the R4DS Firmware, and a video file (not all extensions work, i think MPG/MPEG files work best) Then, you'll have to download a DPG encoder if you don't have one, which comes included with downloading moonshell (Moonshell 2 beta doesn't seem to work on my r4ds but it has all of the tools) Then find and run dpgenc.exe If it's in japanese, the third menu will have a selection between ENG and JAP. Drag and drop the video file onto the program and it should automatically convert (with output shown at the top of the program). It does about 4 steps to finish the file, so be patient! Then move the file to anywhere on your microSD card, launch moonshell using the middle button on the R4DS menu, then find and load your file and if everything is ok then it should launch!

Does the trainer toolkit for action replay work with a R4DS?
How do you reformat an R4ds?
You can go to the official R4DS site and download their latest version, which should be v1.18. Delete everything in your R4 and just copy everything in the .zip file and paste it in the microSD card for your R4DS. Download v1.18: http://www.r4ds.cn/download/r4_v1.18_kernel.html (It's at the bottom of the page)

What is a r4ds?
What does a real R4 look like?
How do you get to ds download play from the r4 main screen?
What games can you put in the R4DS?
== == Putting ANY software on your Nintendo DS via the R4DS that you DO NOT OWN A COPY OF, is ILLEGAL. For example. Take the game, Nintendogs. If you do not OWN a copy of Nintendogs, if you have not PURCHASED it, you must be fully aware that placing this on your R4DS is ILLEGAL. You MAY put user-created programs (homebrew) or personal programs or games that you have created yourself, or the developer has confirmed is FREE TO USE AND DOWNLOAD. Buying the R4DS is not illegal, but putting Nintendo DS ROMs on your DS that you haven't paid for is.
