An issue, and some general "Idiots Guide" questions. The "I'm an Idiot" Questions: 1.1.) I've owned thumb drivers before, and it was my understanding that flash drives were not volatile; Why does the thing need to be charged? -- Also, I have it plugged into the linker right now and plugged in -- will being plugged into the USB port (green light is solid, red is blinking -- more on that later) charge the cartridge? 1.2.) I bought the 1GB version -- EZ Flash III says it's 256 Mb -- which is only 32MB? -- Am I crazy? -- It appears to have a main area for programs, and then a flash disk for save files, pictures, and text... can someone confirm that these two areas are seperate? How big is the flash disk area? (I don't see it advertized.) -- Is the flash drive a subset of the 1GB? (ex: I really have 896MB for programs, and 128MB for flash disk?) -- Why are they seperate? [EDIT]This is the product I bought, http://www.jandaman.com/games.mvc?p=gbaezf..._code=GBADEVKIT -- so it's really 1 Gb, but that's still 128 MB, not 32... so I'm still confused[/EDIT] 1.3.) I've been programming for over 10 years -- game programming with Allegro also (C/C++ are native to me, also I took the time to learn PIC assembly language a while back...) -- Are there any guides to get me started on GBA programming? The "I don't speak chinese and can't read the error message (yes, I chose english, I'm using EZManager 2.2)" Questions: 2.1.) Using EZ_MODE I changed the mode to EZ Flash III (From 1/2), and was able to update the cart's OS thanks to an italian GBA forum, and google translator, and a bunch of italians that knew what was up with the product -- but when I go to format the drive, even if I use the smallest size (128 MB), it gets to about 90% waits a minute, then throws up with an error message with weird symbols -- not chinese characters, but I bet if I was using a unicode font they'd be. And now the red light is blinking non-stop.
