Now I find myself craving an EverDrive 64 X7 just in case my v2.5 ever fails.  ;D

EverDrive 64 / Re: Compatible SD Cards

Seems so random as to which cards work. I own the EverDrive-64 v2.5 and even newer versions of the SanDisk 16GB cards work for me. I know because I purchased a second recently to use as a backup.

I've had good luck with these SanDisks.

You can probably fit all your ROMs on the 8GB version which is selling for less than 6 bucks right now.

I'd love to have a translated version of Wave Race 64 Shindou Edition!

As a side note, it'd be really cool if somebody could figure out how to add Rumble Pak support to Mario Kart 64.

This card works well in my EverDrive 64 v2.5.

A good quality control measure would probably be to include an SD card with every EverDrive 64 that has the latest OS and has been thoroughly tested. That way people who purchase would only need to add their ROMs.

EverDrives should probably come with an SD card that's known to work to help keep more customers satisfied.  ::)

I got this 16 GigaByte SD card and it works perfectly for me.

SanDisk 16GB SDHC Class 4

Over 300 ROMs on mine and haven't had any issues whatsoever. Thanks to my EverDrive 2.5 I'm finally able to play the F-Zero X Expansion Kit which by itself justifies the price for me. Being able to play Super Smash Bros. mods like 19XXTE on top of that is gravy.  ;D   

EverDrive 64 / Re: How do you properly set up Snes9X Alpha?

I recommend using Snes9x GX on Wii. It's the near perfect SNES emulator.

I noticed that my local Walmart stores haven't been carrying SanDisk 16 GB SD cards lately so I got kinda spooked and ordered a couple from an eBay seller. The cards just arrived today so I took the opportunity to load the newest OS (V2.13) and I'm happy to report that everything is working fine.

Here's a link to the seller I bought my cards from.

SanDisk 16GB SDHC 

The picture in the listing shows an SDHC card but the two I received are actually SDHC I cards. Nonetheless, I'm not complaining because the one I tested works perfectly.

If you're having a hard time finding an SD card that works with your EverDrive 64 you may want to give this seller a try.

For anyone interested in the details, I'm in the United States so my EverDrive 64 v2.5 is set to NTSC. Oh and another thing, I didn't even format the card when I got it. Just made sure that there was no data on it before loading the OS file and ROMs.

Confirm that your EverDrive is set to the correct region. There's a small switch inside by the hole for the SD card that switches it between PAL and NTSC. If that doesn't work then remove the case and try slotting just the PCB in your N64. That's what I had to do to get mine to work. Here's a picture of what it looks like.

I can’t get the roms to run once they’re on the SD card. I’ve got the ED64 folder setup and everything and I even managed to update my ultrahdmi firmware with it but I just can’t play roms. So far I’ve only tried the goldeneye Janus mod and smash bros 19xxte .011 but I can’t get either to play. It just says view as hex when I go to play them.

Were the ROMs zipped when you got them? If so then you need to unzip them before adding them to the root of your SD card. For example, 19xxte .011 should be 16,384 KB in size and an z64 file.

BTW, for unzipping, most of the cool kids use WinRAR.  ;)

I wonder if there are any good YouTube videos out there that explain the whole process of prepping an SD card from a newbies perspective?

It's somewhat amazing how many N64 games I've played since receiving my EverDrive 64 at the end of December.

I started with the translated version of F-Zero X: Expansion Kit but have since played a wide variety of games ranging from Last Legion UX (also translated) to Chōkūkan Night Pro Yakyū King 2, which sadly doesn't have an English translation that I'm aware of. Oh and yeah, I've also played a few iQue games that I never thought I'd have the opportunity to play on actual N64 hardware.

Do you have the RGB mod for your N64 Grizzmeister or are you saying you enjoy the Nintendo factory provided S-video for the Nintendo 64 on your CRT televisions well enough?  :P 8)

I'm in the United States so S-Video to my CRT TV is good enough for me. I don't own an official Nintendo brand S-Video cable but I do have the purple colored Monster brand S-Video cable that, by most accounts, is actually superior. The Monster cable is thicker with better shielding and when I use that cable the picture quality on my CRT is really quite impressive. I will mention, though, that games like Mario Kart 64 still look better when I play the Virtual Console version and that's because I connect my Wii to either my CRT or HD television via component cables.
