    I've had this product for almost a year now and just this morning i noticed the icons for 2 of my games were blank and the names were replaced with "..." they still worked fine though, but when i loaded it up on my computer i noticed all my gba stuff was corrupted but my nds stuff was fine so i backed up all my nds saves. This has actually happened before but Windows error-checking was able to correct it for me so i never made much of a fuss about it. Although, this time, it didn't work and all my files seemed to have disappeared, but it still shows that i have data used on the cart when i check.

    So, just to let everyone know that while the g6 is a great product, its not exactly future proof, due to reasons above. Thank god i backed up my saves before all this (except for my 1 gba save which was corrupted before i could save it, hopefully i can get a save file off someone for rhythm tengoku one day).

    I was planning on getting a EZ flash soon anyway. So as long as i have my nds saves, this isn't making me freak out or anything, just thought i should share this.

    (And, yes, i treat my g6 product with care, and always use safetly hardware remove etc)

    Perhaps it was the micro card instead of the G6 that corrupted itself?

    the g6 lite doesn't need a micro SD card, it has built in memory, and that's a shame about the g6 lite, i brought mine quite a while back and it's served me well so far.

    Yeah, but the actual files disappeared from my cart (read above). Also, my nds stuff was missing also, not just my gba files.

    My G6 is currently corrupted, it acted like that for a few days. The problem was the latest version of DSOrganize corrupts the G6 when you try to delete files. So, I can't reformat (first time I've had to format) in Linux due to file permission problems. I will need to go my other house and fix it on that computer since it still runs winsux. Long story short, the previous version lets you delete files, but the latest will always result in corruption, no matter how big or small the file is.

    Sorry to hear that. I can't blame DSOrganize though (or any homebrew for that matter), since i never use it.
