what do i do?

You don't need the disk.

go to www.r4ds.com then look down towards the bottom left corner of the page and it says

R4 v1.18 Kernel underlined with a little blue flashing explosion next to it saying "NEW" click on that link, A new page should open, scroll down to where it says "English Krenel v1.18" and click on eithere link "download 1" or "download 2" it doesn't matter which. A screen that says do you want to save or open this file should appear, click save and decide where to save it to. Once you have done that and it has been downloaded, If you don't already have winrar on your computer type winrar in to google and you will be shown a series of options follow the further on screen instructions to download and install. Then you need to find the file in your "My Computer" right click on the right thing and select Extract here it will do that and then you can copy and paste it straight onto your micro SD card, then download games and you will need to extract the downloaded games using Winrar as well so don't delete it.

A good site for games i find is www.romulation.net and register for a free account, there are instructions on the site how to do that.

Hope that helps

R4 Problem loading error

Get this file extract the file with winrar, and copy the files to the DS card. The file structure should have is:
  • _system_
  • moonshl
You should now put your .nds files onto the root of the card also, and hopefully all should work OK for you
