OK people here it is, finally for all of you with the EDGE.DAT.TEDAK.MENUMUKAN I spent 3 hours trying to go through forums to figure this out and NO!!! (someone replied, its on the box moron) it is not so for all you mums and dads out there who are not computer boffs.
1/you are not insane and together we will fet this to work!!!
2/Try to do this on a PC if you can I found it easier, it will work on the MAC too once you know the principle.
3/Send me Ã‚Â£10 to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will tell you....only kidding but you can call to say thanks.
a/ plug in your SD card to the reader and go to edge-ds.cn and download the OS update only, dont worry about the moonshll like in R4. Download it to your card reader E or F: drive whatever your computer calls it. Make sure you have the EDGE folder with the contents in it, I think the DAT file is about 1004MB or so.
b/ OK heres the problem, that DAT file 'within' the EDGE yellow folder must be out on its own, IT CANNOT BE IN A FILE.
c/ I had trouble with my Mac trying to move the DAT file out on its own but thats just me not being too Savvy, if you have a Mac, go to your download file on finder and try to figure out how to get that darn .DAT file right at the top of the root (whats the root? ok as far as I can tell the root is the lowest common denominator that the card can go, ie when you open your E or F card reader with your card in it you should see the EDGE folder and the .DAT file sitting there first not just the EDGE folder)
d/ On windows right click your start button and click explore. Look for your card reader (may say F: external drive or card drive) open the EDGE folder and find tha bloody .DAT file, right click it and CUT it. Now, go back one level using the little 'back one arrow' at the top of the box. If confused just go back to the F: drive again (or whatever your card reader is on) and open it to where you see the EDGE yellow folder ONLY and .....drum roll.......da daaaaa........right click and paste the little bugger file called DAT into the ROOT!!!!!!!!!
e/ send me money or thanks because now you will insert the card into the DS and it will not give you a chinese expletive but BOOTING......and then download your games........
Thank you Thank you Thank you......going down the pub now to celebrate!!!!
