    Hello,

    I have tried with search but did not find any information related to my problem:

    I was using Ez-flash IV without problems.

    Today I saw, that there are a lot of folders (files) with weird names in the root fodler, where only EZ-Disk should be.

    There are many pages of such folders. Some of them are length 0, some are more than zero, as can be seen in the second photo.
    Games and saves still work ok. If I run such a file, gameboy resets.

    If I put the card in the computer, I don't see these files.

    I have tried to format the card, reinstalled the firmware (1.68 to 1.72 and again back to 1.68), but the problem is still there, with both firmware versions.
    I have also checked the card with h2testw_1.14-1 program, and everything with the card seems to be ok.

    I doubt this is normal.
    How can this occure ?
    How can I delete the files ?

    Thanks
    Andrej

    Flashing a game to NOR does that.

    yeah it is normal for some people.

    here is a previous post on the matter and fixes are listed inside: http://ezflash.sosuk...hp?f=12&t=14722

    you might have to ask FAST6191 to re-up a copy of the blank NOR file since the link he gives no longer works. Or you can downgrade to 1.63 to avoid this issue from coming up again from time to time.

    Thanks for help :)
    I'll try one of the options (kernel 1.63 or contacting FAST6191)...
