    Been using this cart for a few days now (love it) ..

    Tonight i took some stuff off then added some more. I figured i would defrag it..... Normally i use perfect disk but The G6 doesnt show up so i used the built in windows defrag. Worked ok untill %10 then it just sat there forever! :'(

    Anyway I formated it to be safe and started over .. everything works fine.

    What do you use to format your G6 DS Real? [​IMG]

    There is no need to defragment flash devices. Unlike physical moving discs, there is no overhead for random access on a flash device.

    In Perfect Disk try enable the option "Allow Defragment of USB Drives" or something like that i don't remember exactly because i don't use this program anymore.

    Indeed flash drives in general doesn't need defragment however i suggest you read this article here if you want more info

    I format it the way the G6 site mentions to. By holding Start on boot up.

    How did you format it? By this method or using Windows? I know formatting the N-Card and its clones using Windows messes the cart up. So i thought it would the same with G6 Real. Maybe not...

    I just used windows. I knew that you could do it with the DS but didn't think it mattered at the time. Everything seems ok so far.
