EDMD Hangs while writing new game to memory.
« on: April 09, 2013, 07:01 AM »
I was an early adopter of my EDMD, and I've had it for about 2 years. Lately, the cart has been hanging when writing a new game to memory. It doesn't matter what game it is, as far as I can tell, but the sizes are usually between 16-32 Mb. I've tried different SD cards with the same result.

Igor, is there anything that can be done? Thanks!

Try these in the order listed below:

- Format the SD with a 32kb cluster size.
- Copy a dummy file to the SD card (Go for 200MB, should be more than enough) http://download.cnet.com/Dummy-File-Creator/3000-2248_4-10468596.html
- Copy your ROMs to the SD card
- Delete dummy file

It hangs in the end of flashing, or when loading bar in progress?
Try to enable genny3 mode, but this function may not work if your firmware is very old, also you may try to use other version of os, may be more new or more old than you have.

Will try, thanks!

It hangs while the loading bar is in progress. I'll make sure Genny 3 mode isn't enabled, otherwise I'll send it to StoneAgeGamer for an upgrade.

Thanks!
