Hey Saturnus,

Just got my Everdrive V3 a few hours ago,

Been having an issue getting PKMN Crystal Cart to dumb onto my SD card.
When i get to either dumping RAM, or Dumping ROM, I get an message "File Already Exists on Drive"

Especially after trying to do a RAM dump it advises me to "Power Down" and after hitting Z, the text gets loaded up and distorted.

In addition the Screen Is not loading the background for the Rom when loaded up off of the Root menu of the SD drive.

I have the most updated version of the OS for the Everdrive, and the most updated version of libgbpak.
The Carts are all ntsc including Everdrive Cart at the moment

I couldn't find anything that this is exclusively working for only PAL carts at this time, is this the case?

I have a 2.5 and am getting the same problem (black background, file already exists).

Clearly the application is having trouble reading the SD card, especially since the background is black..

bugfix version released v0.6.3.1

- v2, v2.5, v3 compatibility fix
- additional PAL 256x240 interface for better compatibilty
- startup 'bing' sound removed

if you are using a v1 you should try the legacy version v0.6.3

Well... it almost works. Whenever I dump either the save or the ROM, it fails very consistently. I'm trying to dump Pokemon Red for starters, and the application reads it correctly (so does Pokemon Stadium), but when I dump it, it outputs a file that has two repeating hex values instead of what's supposed to be there.

Ex: "POKEMONRED " becomes "POPOMOMORERE"

I thought it was just a bad connection, but I cleaned everything like crazy and it's still not working, even though everything works perfectly in Pokemon Stadium.

On an unrelated note, is there a chance of applying this fix to alt64 so I can use that on my ED64 2.5?

EDIT: Here is the dumped ROM: http://www109.zippyshare.com/v/iBPSfzbY/file.html

Hey saturnu i have a question. can your program be updated to dump a gameboy test cart?  im at the end of my rope trying to find a way to dump this cart. and i see your still activity working on this program?

It recognizes there's a cart in the slot (with the name DMG AGING)  but it shows check connection so i cant dump it.  and yes the connection on the transfer pak controller and cartridge has been polished to a shine and the slots are clean. so i know theres no bad connection.  ive tried 3 other transfer paks and controllers with version v0.6.3 and v0.3.  it works with a regular cart.  its important i get this dumped cause its an eprom and eprom data will die from bit rot eventually making this 1000 dollar cart worthless.  the cart works fine on every hardware for the gb gbc and gba.

here a scan on the cart disasembled. it uses a full size 32k eprom

hm yes,
the dump fails 'cause i check for a good connection by the cartridge name in the header.
it seems like in this case it starts with a blank (0x20), i guess i should improve this anyway. ^^

I hope so cause the next step is to de solder the eprom from the board, buy a programmer and dump it that way.  The retrode doesnt work corectly with this cart so im out of options.  If im correct this rom doesnt have header data but im not sure.

Let me know if you can come up with something :P  Thanks!
