    * Minor cleanups

    19-01-2011 cfg v65a (alpha)
    * Updated libfat to svn-4520 which includes FSINFO (by Dimok)
    FAT fsinfo stores the free space info to a designated sector
    speeding up the time it takes to print the free space.
    Previously the entire FAT table had to be scanned to get the
    free space which could take up to a couple of minutes.
    This was also the reason the option hide_hddinfo=1 is set
    so that by default the free space is not displayed .
    * Added a way to manually scan and sync the free space in fsinfo.
    Go to global options / partition selection and press 2
    Then all FAT filesystems will be shown and the free space for each
    By confirming with A the free space will be scanned again. If the
    scanned free space mathces fsinfo OK is displayed otherwise the
    correct free space, which is then stored to fsinfo.
    It is enough to do this once, after that the fsinfo should be kept
    in sync. (but using some other homebrew to write/delete data from
    FAT will make the info unsynced again, until all other apps are upgraded
    with the new libfat as well)
    * Minor change to usbstorage mem allocation (back to v63)
    (in case it fixes problems with v64 that were not in v63)

    CFG Usb Loader - Video issues

    Hello!!!

    I'm using the CFG Usb Loader to load my games, its working perfectly.
    But yesterday night I tried to load the Super Mario Collection (snes) and the screen change to black and freeze.
    After reset (only holding power button), I tried again but changing the video conf. to "Force PAL50".
    After that the game runs!

    The problem is: I don't remember the configurations before changes, and The Legend of Zelda is not loading (black and freeze screen).

    Someone may help me? I need to know the complete video conf. to play Zelda.

    Thanks all!

    Now I may have to give CFG a try if it supports EXT2.

    Upgrade cfg USB loader from v58 to v62

    Hi. I have been using cfg loader v58 249 250[Frag], and it has worked well. I see there is a newer version (v62) that enables you to download covers, etc. and I would like to know how to upgrade v58 to v62. I have downloaded cfg_usb_loader_62.zip but not sure what to do with it now that I have it. I am new to all this, so I was hoping someone could give me step by step instructions on how to upgrade to v62. Thanks in advance for any and all help.
