    On a related note has rom trimming caused any problems with certain games?

    Do you have a link to Draw 3? I haven't heard of it before.

    Hey I just noticed that you can safely delete all the .1 & .2 files off the G6 Lite cause the save is actually in the .0 files... Those other two are for backups from the main menu... I deleted all my .1 and .2 fiels and freed up another 9.5 MB... Each sav file is 256 KB... Seems a waste if you're not going to use the backup feature... I back em up regularily on the PC anyhow...

    That's quite a bit of extra space... enough for another game at least

    so when you want to put the save back on, you put the .0 file in the g6 folders to replace the original right?

    Or you can back up and restore save files through the Udisk manager, this is what I do. I guess you get the same result through copy+paste but I find this easier.
