Ok, I wont open up mine and cut the pin if that might not work.  I wonder why it works in my friend's?  Next time I head over there I'll see if I can get him to trade consoles.

I took my famicom style n8 with the 60-72 adapter over to a friends house today.  I had left the micro sd with R20v5 by accident, but figured I would try anyway to see what happened.  To my surprise, the thing loaded up and we were able to play without any problems.  The only difference between my 2 front loaders and his front loader was that his lockout chip was disabled with the one pin removed.

Why would this work on with the famicom style and adapter?  We tried it about 50 times and it boots up every time.  Never stuck once on OS INIT or any other error.  Seems that mine and everyone else with the adapter cannot get it to work.  Has anyone else tried disabling the lockout chip and see if that made any difference?

After having zero success with the v20-rc7 (or anything newer than v16) on my US front loading NES (famicom version using a 60-72 pin adapter) I decided to order a Famicom.

The famicom boots right up to the everdrive menu, not freezing at OS INIT.

It sure seems to me that there must be some issue with the famicom version with adapter in the US front loader.

The adapters i have tried are a China one, a Hyperkin, one from Gyromite, and one from Wrecking Crew.

Adding to my post above, I also have 2 front loading NES consoles that do not work wit any v20 version.  Using the 60-72 adapter has to be the issue.

I also have the famicom version of the N8 used with a US front loader and cant get anything newer than v16 to work.

I've tried just about every microsd card in varying storage sizes under the sun and multiple 60-72 converters.

Do I just sell this and order the US NES version for the newer firmware?

Might actually be cheaper to buy a Famicom and see if that works with v20.

Can someone please link a SD card that actually works with v20? Amazon would be ideal.

I've tried the following and none of them work with v20:
Sandisk Ultra 16GB
Sandisk Extreme 16GB
Sandisk Extreme Pro 32GB
Samsung EVO Select 32GB

It's getting expensive to keep buying cards to test and since it seems like it is a common issue it would be nice to know what works perfectly.

I'd like to know too, but for microsd cards since I have the famicom n8 version.  Anyone in the US willing to sell a working microsd with the latest v20?

The info for my famicom n8 that is giving nothing but "os init" on any of the v20 downloads is:

Bios ver:5
Cpld ver:1
adate:14.10.13
atime:17:47

I'm using a US frontloader, no mods, with a 60-72 converter from gyromite.

With new RC1 update Everdrive doesn't work after power on console. Just freeze on msg OS Unit.

I'm having the same issue, cant figure it out.  I've tried at least 8 cards of different storage sizes, formatted who knows how many times with every possible cluster size. Cant get anything other than "os init".  v16 works no problem, so that's what I'm sticking with for now.

Sandisk are terrible product since (2015) EDGB came out.

Is my everdrive a clone if I can get the self test menu to load up?

Format fat32 using 32kb and place EDFC folder onto the sd prior to placing any other folder.
I've tried that multiple times with different microsd cards.  I've also tried without a ROMS folder, just copying over the EDFC folder with no success.

Everything v16 and older load up no problem.

Still no luck.  Bought a brand new Sandisk 8gb card an still stuck at OS INIT.  I've tried a different 60-72 adapter and dug out my 2nd NES front loader.

I did buy the everdrive off of ebay a couple years ago, but I dont think it's a clone one.

Formatting with 32kb clusters seems okay now.
I just drag all the folders together to the SD.
I don't experience errors with RC1, not as much as with Beta1.
I'm not seeing 32k as an option.  I've checked the windows format tool and minitool partition manager.

what brand/size sd card are you using?

4096, 16k, nothing seems to make a difference.  I've formatted with the windows 7 utility and sdformatter.  Full overwrite format, not quick.

v16 and earlier versions load up no problem.
