    If you have one of the new Intel based Macs, you can run the G6 U-Disk Manager without booting into windows with CrossOver Mac:


    My installation process was something like this:

    - Install CrossOver Mac, and start it up
    - Start the CrossOver Software Installer
    - Select 'Install Unsupported Software'
    - Create a Windows 2000 'bottle' (Not sure if it would work with win98)
    - Select 'Choose Installer File' and locate the 'G6 U-DISK Manager V4.6A.exe' installer

    Now configure your 'bottle' to add the G6 as a drive that the U-Disk software can see:

    - Plug in your G6 to your Mac
    - Select the 'Configure' menu, then 'Manage Bottles...'
    - Select your Windows 2000 bottle
    - Select 'Control Panel', then 'winecfg', then hit 'Launch selected item'
    - Select the 'Drives' tab
    - Press 'Add...' and it will add a D: drive
    - Press 'Browse...' for the Path and navagate to '/Volumes/G6Lite', where 'G6Lite' is the name of your device (mine showed up as 'No Name' before I renamed it)
    - Press OK until you have left winecfg

    Now you can launch the U-Disk Manager, (Programs menu), select the D: drive for your G6, then use the software!

    There are a few graphical glitches, and I had to hit enter instead of pressing OK to write, but I tested deleting / writing NDS roms and everything worked just fine.

    This beats needing a full windows install for this small but vital utility.

    Yeah, I've had a bit of success getting the U-Disk Manager to work in wine on Linux (which is what Crossover is based on), but haven't had a chance to right it up yet.

    update wine from source and everything should be fine, the only thing u gotta do is hit enter to write games instead of clicking
