i've had my g6 lite for about... 2 months? maybe a little longer, can't recall. it plays fine and i transfer games back & forth fine but in the past 2 weeks, i've been encountering problems while playing games (i use a gb micro, btw). while i was playing final fantasy tactics advance, the cart accidentally got pulled out from one side. i turned of the system asap and turned it back on to see if there were any problems, none. a couple days later i was playing ultimate spider man, it froze out of nowhere. it froze again once back on final fantasy tactics advance. when it freezes, there is a screeching noise from the speaker (it's not too loud but it's noticable even if you don't pay attention to it)... i just turn off the micro and turn it back on after the crash so it seems like a minor problem...

i guess what i'm trying to ask here is if this is common or should i really be worried? i do take good care of my belongings (i follow instructions carefully)... but just that once i had the cart slide out a bit... i'm kinda scared.

I've heard about G6 going funky for no appearant reason. Mine hasn't done this before, but it has happened. There's software on the official download site to reformat your G6 (be sure to backup your saves mate ;p). According to many sources, this can fix most of your problems.

    it can't be plugged into a USB reader (it's made from a regular SD card to USB adapter, but with the USB end modded to a Dreamcast serial plug)

    It was working fine before I installed the GDEMU, but now the Dreamcast doesn't recognize it when I boot up Dreamshell.

    ahhh I gotcha. yeah haven't looked at it that much so I'm not super familiar with the hardware

    Can't find any threads about this particular issue on GBAtemp or the wider intarwebz. Saw one video on YouTube that seemed relevant, but it was some dude with the same issue, no solutions offered in the comments. :/

    The teacher just wanted to know what kind of perverted debauchery Julie was watching on the school computer instead of studying.
