*.nds files are the only files your R4 can natively launch, as those are DS binaries. However, the *.nds files can access other files on your system. For instance, you can launch Moonshell.nds which can access the *.mp3 and *.jpg and *.txt files on your card (and other file formats as well).

*.gba files are made for the GBA, and they won't run on any slot-1 device like an R4 without a slot-2 device of some sort.

*.nfo files are just information files. Open them with Notepad to see what they say.

I also have an R4 and am somewhat of a newbie to all this. I'm actually looking for something to put all my old gameboy advance games on, so I can take them with me like I do my DS games on the R4. Which is the best thing to use for GBA games, considering I have the R4, and will the GBA roms play exactly like the real games, as the R4 does with DS games? Thanks so much.

Look into the EZ-V 3in1 expansion pack.
