    Hello, I wonder if anyone could help me. I have had my DSTT for a few days now and am very pleased with it. One problem i have been having with it though is that some roms have been listed on the DSTT's games list with 2 files. The second file is identical to the first file and spelt exactly the same but is only 4kb in size and if clicked on it just sits on a white screen. The original file runs fine but it just bugs me having a list twice as long for no reason. Oh yeah and when i look on the sd card on my computer i can only see the original file and not the second one! very confusing [​IMG]

    Any help would be great and i hope i have explained it well enough.
    Thanks
    Ross

    try show all files and folders on the computer and see if you can see the nuisance files if you can still not see them maby try formatting your mem card and starting over with a clean card [​IMG]

    Thanks for the quick reply. I have tried the show all files and cannot see them and i have also formatted the card. I just thought it was weird how it only did it with some and not others.

    Thanks

    The second 4K files are a nuisance. They are hidden/invisible files and you'd not normally see them on your PC.

    If you have some means of displaying these files then you'll be able to delete them. Might be difficult under Windows?

    I use a 'nix operating system so I just zap them all with one command.

    If I recall correctly the 4K files are identical except that they begin with a ".". On most computers this is like a flag to inform the OS that the files is hidden.
