Step 1
--------
* Retry till it's found in windows!
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Step 2
--------
* If not found, start Recovery Tool (MPUtility) (Can be found on there homepage: http://www.handheldsources.com/Download%20...ftware%203.html )
* Press 'OK'
* Press 'DO NOW!
* Wait
* When it's done, remove G6 Lite and connect again
* Wait till windows recognizes the drive
------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 3
--------
* Format it in windows
* Format it in "FAT"
* After the format start the G6 recovery software (MPUtility)
* At the first screen just press 'OK'
* At the next screen press 'DO NOW!'
* Wait about 15 to 20 min for the 4Gb version, around 10 for the 2Gb
* If it took it's time and it say don, you can start using it!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

* If it is way faster, it' not done properly
* Restart from step step 3 (reformat in "FAT" etc...)

The last reply is the good one. There are three button codes in the G6 GBA loader, accessible on the loading screen (green text):

L+R+Start+Select: Erase main memory (Really useful when your PC won't recognize your G6 Lite after several tries). Small trick: if you want to get your data back, try plugging it into a Mac! I managed to backup my saves this way when my PC wouldn't hear a thing (don't know if it works with Linux).

L+R+A+B: Test the cart memory (SRam and PSRam).

A+B+Start+Select: Access a system reloader. I don't know what it does; selecting "yes" copies some files and exits afterwards. It seems like a firmware reinitializer, but my loader files were still v4.8 after that...
