    is there another location the g6lite saved my data to? im asking because i cant get rid of the damn dog. i know there is an IN GAME delete, but i thats not whats bothering me. i wiped out my entire g6lite card with FAT format and recopied over nintendogs...... guess what the dog is still alive. [​IMG] the only way i could get rid of it was using the maintenace util and doing a low level format.

    so where is the g6lite storing the nintendog save file?

    try it yourself if you dont believe me [​IMG]

    i noticed that there is a nintendogs save file created after updating to 4.2a english. I think it was in the nds folder. I've never played nintendogs, yet there was a sav file there.

    When you write a rom to the G6 using the U-Disk Manager, the U-Disk Manager creates three saves at the same time. However, the saves should be blank at this point, so I can't explain what happened to preelude.

    G6 lite backs up its save every time you turn it on, so if you play nintendogs, get pissed at your dog, unplug G6, plug into computer, format the card, put nintendogs back on, and then try to play Nintendogs again, it will back up the save that it still has stored in its SRAM (you arent allowed to format that) and then you're back where you started with Nintendogs.

    If you think this is the case, try playing nintendogs, then turning off, turning back on, then turn off again. THEN do the format thing, and if you want to be really sure, patch clean nintendogs rom through u-disk manager. This should without a doubt fix the problem.

    there is a key combo to reset it. U have to press it when the Nintendo logo apears on boot of the game.

    dont know which keys to press u have to search for it.
    but it works i used it before.

    After loading, on the screen where the Nintendo logo is on top and copyright information on the bottom, press and hold L + R + A + B + X + Y simultaneously to delete your data from the cartridge.
