    I'm having trouble getting DS games to work on the G6flash system, I might be missing something, I don't know what though. But GBA games work fine, but after loading a couple DS games in the flash, the system doesnt run the file. Am I missing something? Thanks.

    Did you updated your G6? Are you using the G6 U-DISK Manager?
    And If the game it's a recent release, make sure to write the game using only "Safe Mode"

    Gambia, The
    Use the U disk manager and activate "safe mode".

    I think most new games work with dofat/force rw, you don't have to always use safe mode but I guess it's worth trying if nothing else works.

    Hmm it still doesnt display in my game directory after loading it in with U-Disk. Can some one give me a step by step guide? I might be missing something. Thanks.

    Are you using a passme device to access NDS mode? You must do this to play NDS games.
