    My apologies if I'm missing something obvious, but a search of the forums didn't turn up anything useful. I got my G6 Lite last week, downloaded and installed the latest versions of the loader and U-Disk Manager, and quickly got a few DS games and ScummVM up and running.

    I cannot, however, get any GBA ROMs functioning; when I try to run them, I get the usual loading indicator for a few seconds, and then both screens go white and stay that way. Things I've tried include: all three patching methods (hardware, software, and the default hardware+software), unzipping before burning them through the U-Disk Manager, running an intro remover program, and snagging a few different copies with different sizes from different sources.

    The only idea I've got left is to try different region releases (everything I've attempted so far was a U.S. release), but this strikes me as even more of a long shot than the intro remover was.

    Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    You are running the roms in GBA mode, aren't you? [​IMG]

    You can't launch a GBA game from DS Mode (Example: through the file browser...)
    The DS and GBA are two different chips; I think DS uses ARM9 processor while GBA uses ARM 7.

    Press Y to start GBA mode.

    ...Yeah, that would fit under the category of "incredibly obvious things I overlooked." Thanks for taking pity on me; it's greatly appreciated.

    I can't get Robopon 2 to work (don't ask. I loved the original so I wanted to see if this was any better)
