    (U) isn't Ur-up, (E) is Europe. Yes you will be able to use all regions.

    To load files, insert the adapter, then the G6 itself. Then just drag and drop your files. If there was a mini CD with your G6 follow the instruction on that.

    TO AVOID CORRUPTION: Never remove the G6 from the adapter itself, always remove both first. Always click on "safely remove hardware" icon.

    Once you get to their Site click Slot 1, then go to downloads and everything you need is there.

    I have read this "The G6DS Real allows you to boot either an NDS mode slot 2 flash kit adapter, or a real GBA game pak (or GBA flash cart) from within its OS."

    I assume if my games are in .nds format I should use NDS mode slot 2,what is GBA pak how I will know if a game is in that format?thanks

    Right, your ROMS are in .nds format. You paste them into a folder on your G6 Real called NDS. No patching required. A GBA pak is simply a GBA cartridge. The G6 allows you to boot a Gameboy Advance game from the GBA slot or a GBA flashcart. Your roms should always be in .nds format. ALWAYS. When downloaded they will 10/10 times be in .nds format. GBA games are in .gba format. Your G6 Real is a Slot 1 cart, Slot 1 refers to a DS game card. Slot 2 refers to a GBA game or flashcart. I am not too sure exactly what you are asking but hopefully this answers any questions.

    In order to play a .gba on a DS you need a GBA flashcart.
