    I was playing excitebots off my of microsd card, then the next time I loaded it, USB Loader asked me to format my card. I didn't know why, since it already was and I just played a game off of it an hour earlier, but I figured whatever, just do it over again. Now whenever I try to format the card, I just get error (ret = -6). I tried formatting it with WBFS again, which is how it worked the first time, and reinstalling excitebots through WBFS, but it still didn't work, I then tried Madworld, which also worked prior, and still the same error.

    Does anyone know what this error is and how to correct it? Also, any ideas as to why it would do this with something that was already formatted and being played off of just an hour prior? I would hate to have it all working again and then get the error over and over.

    Thanks, Indie

    Weird, my USB is definitely plugged in, and it's definitely worked before.

    I'll try the swap method, but still don't understand why it would work once, and then not again.

    Swap method didn't work. I'm gonna try DK's USB Loader instead.

    Has Waninkoko fixed this issue yet? Or has a work around been found? This is really getting frustrating.
