    Hey guys.

    I have a DSTT and my friend game me some games and I put them on there
    but then i went back and deleted some of them and they were gone.

    but when i loaded up my DSTT the games were still there
    I loaded it back up on the computer with the USB drive and they are
    no where to be found. So whats the deal
    Does anyone know?

    Format the memory stick as first try of the solution and then report here.

    Did you use the Windows "safely remove hardware" feature before you removed the microSD card from your PC?

    I will try reformat it and see what it does i am sure it will just kick everything off which would be fine
    if I just drag off my roms and the sav files i won't lose anything right?

    Alright did the reformat and the hidden games are gone.
    and on another note
    I was playing some pokemon and it happend to be one of the hidden games
    so the sav file was hidden so I lost my game but all of my other games are good with the sav file.
    but i was only about an hour into the game so not a big loss.
    Thanks

    Three suggestions: 1) reformat using the Panasonic formatter. 2) make sure you always use "safely remove hardware" before you remove the microSD card from your computer. 3) make sure your .nds and .sav files are in a "games" folder and not on the root of your microSD card.
