    I've noticed a lot of installers tell you to remove Gamecube memory cards, and I've always done it. What's the actual reason for this? Just curious.

    I'm not sure since it's never happened to me despite the warnings. [​IMG]

    This seems like a likely answer, Ive always wondered why it did that.
