    I'm thinking that re-formating might help. What do you think?

    Thats a great idea. It's exactly what i do when things start getting weird on mine and it has always fixed it. It only seems to happen if i forget to safely take it off my comp.

    How do you format the drive? I know how to do the actual format in windows, but after that, how do you restore all the G6 software? Going to try it, see if maybe theres something wrong with the cart causing my problem here

    Edit: Did the format, ran the maintenance utility, and everything is working fine now
