Nintendo DS / R4 Card Help

I recently bought my little sister an R4 card for her DS Lite. A friend burned me a DVD with about 30 games on.

I put a 2GB micro SD card into the R4 card, plugged the R4 card into the PC. I copied the DVD onto my desktop, then copied/pasted the games onto the R4 card.

When I put the R4 card into the DS, it just states "LOADING..." on a Black screen (top screen).

I've probably shown I'm not great with technology. Just wondering if anyone knows where I've gone wrong ? Any help appreciated...

You need software for the R4 do you not?
#2
update the firmware to latest version-you can leave the games folder on the card-just delete the firmware and replace with the latest

it is only the .nds file you need, has he copied the unzipped game onto dvd, if so you will need to unzip each game and drag and drop the .nds file

Thanks for all the help!

Sorted it now. I probably should have read the whole instruction page before I left a second message.

Works a treat and I'm in her good books (for now)
