    Help! Somehow mu G6 sometimes decides to erase my saves??
    For example.
    Playing EBA I was at the chearleaders level. Then when I started it I had to start from the beginning again. Quite annoying. Same goes for Animal Crossing. All of a sudden all my progress was gone.

    Anyone with the same problem?

    Chances are the battery in your G6 is dead.
    I haven't opened my g6 yet so i'm not sure what battery it takes but they're usually the kind you find in calculators and electronic dayplanners. You can find a replacement at any electronic store.
    P.S. I've heard that the batteries they put in carts recharge while you play and should last 6 years just siting there. So you could have gotten a defective battery.

    I think my battery is dead too, I can only save if I switch on really fast after swith off, and sometime the save is corruped.
    If I wait 1 second before witching on, the G6 don't even detect a save to write (the processing message).

    The only way I have now is the Soft reset as it write the save when reseting the G6.
    You will have to use that too.

    Leave it in the burner overnight. Apparently the battery is meant to charge through it.
