Everdrive GG Help needed
« on: December 23, 2013, 07:15 PM »
Hi im new to Everdrives as a whole, I have a GG and a mega ED
On my GG how to I set things up im confused, I have got the OSv7 Beta, where do I put it. Does it go in root of SD or into a specific folder
I know about the 200 files per folder so I have done that, just needed a bit of help on the OS file

the GG/SMS everdrives are different than the MEGA-ED:

1. on your FAT16 SD put the BETA7 OS file
2. go to options ,  choose the update OS option and then select the new OS file you downloaded
3. when it is done simply close the GG and take out the SD card
4. put it in your computer, format is as FAT32 and put some roms in it
5. play!!!

when you make the OS7 upgrade your FAT16 formatted card does not work anymore, this is normal as OS7 works only with FAT32 cards.

Hi,
thank you for the Update. What else got fixed with it?
I tried Gunstar Heroes but it still wont play.
Will there be a fix someday for it and for the rest of the games that dont run?

Happy new year!

So you have to format your SDCARD to FAT16 first and upgrade the OS and then format the same SD to FAT32 to put ROMs on?

That's correct.
Remember that in some places FAT16 = FAT

I’m looking for some help too. Just bought a GG everdrive and trying to set it up, I’ve put the OS file in a couple of SD cards and no matter which nothing happens when I turn the console on. I just get a completely black screen. Tried reformatting and no luck. Any ideas?

GG is recently recapped and runs all other games straight away no problem

Ok I’ve now tried 4 different SD cards, tried it on batteries and mains plug and still nothing. Sometimes it says OS initializing but then just takes me to a black screen with nothing on it

Try cleaning the cartridge contacts.
If I remember correctly you have to format as FAT32, FAT won't work.
Are you using a power brick or batteries?

Cartridge contacts appear fine as other games start no problem. I’ve tried using batteries and mains. I formatted the card to FAT32 also

Format the SD card(s) using the official SD card association formatter
Select the "Overwrite format" option.

Power on the console normally once and then "reset" it flicking the power switch rapidly.
