    All you have to do is use the games save function as normal and then you have two options for the G6 to write this save data.
    It can save either by hard reset where the save data is stored in SRAM when you physically power off the console and when you turn the console back on, the save data gets written.

    The other way it can save data is through a soft reset (provided you select the function prior to launching the game) where the save data gets written after pressing a certain button combination that brings you back to the G6 main menu.

    The bit where it says processing data is the part where saves are copied over (AFAIK)

    The problem sometime is it does not save on hard reset:

    Mine did this so I had the vendor exchange it - now all working fine - ever so as mentioned above it deoesn't actually stop you saving data as you can use soft reset insted.

    I did the exact same thing and on the replacement I got, I was able to properly use the boot to DS menu function first.
