    Why do i get a folder called 'recycled' on the screen where i select roms? it only shows up on the R4 when in the main menu (a folder called recycled appears on top of the list, followed by the roms i have on the micro sd), but i cant seem to get rid of it, it doesnt show up on Windows explorer when micro sd to PC, even when i selected hidden files & folders to show. It only shows up in r4 menu.

    i think i know why it appears but i cant get rid of it, i think it is there because when i deleted a file from my micro sd, it doesnt deleted right off the memory card, but moves it to 'recycle bin', i will then need to empty reccyle bin to get rid of it. i thought when i delete something from flash (memory cards) memory, it would be deleted straight away, not moved to recycle bin

    It only one folder but i am a very organised person and only want the roms to show.

    im using a 1gb sandisk formatted using FAT, and using the new 1.05 on my R4.

    please help

    Try this: back up all your files in your memory card (except the "recycled" folder) and format it to FAT32. After formatting, put everything back in to your memory card and report back.
