    (fyi my ttds is real, so that shouldn't be a problem)

    I had dslinux on my ds for a while. it was OK, but sorry, I didn't really like it. I also had StarLite 0.03, but it just plain wouldn't work.

    So, I put my card in my computer and deleted all the files.

    however, they still appear in the menu...and they still work!!

    wtf is going on? how can I fix it??

    i figured out what was going on with my mac.

    ok. while you have the memory card still plugged into the mac, you drag and drop the game and the sav into the trash.

    Then, go to trash and with the memory card STILL IN YOU MAC. hit empty trash.

    and there you go!

    If you're indeed using a Mac, then do what they said. Otherwise if your using Windows, make sure you're removing the memory card the "safe" way.

    i deleted the files on a mac, then ejected the card

    however, I am now using a PC. On the PC, the files still don't show up, but they still show up on the DS. [​IMG]

    Reformat it (search "Panasonic Formatter" on google), sorry but all your files are gone. [​IMG] It happens to me often... just make backup files so you don't lose your saves.

    okay, I copied all my files to a folder on the desktop, then formatted it for FAT32 (which erased everything, of course)

    I copied all of my files back, and now starlite and DSlinux are gone.

    however, now the DSTT menu is acting slow. when I press down to continue the list, I have to wiat a couple of seconds until it goes. Also, the games are taking a little bit longer to load.

    other than that, everything works. What's making it slow down, though?

    You want FAT, use the Panasonic Formatter.
