Bad SD card or bad (fake?) everdrive N8
« on: October 08, 2016, 12:38 AM »
I bought this secondhand and it will load OSV13 but i can not load a single rom, every rom i try (obtained from an everdrive complete pack) results in a grey screen. I have tried a new SD card, reformatting, defragging, and i still get the exact same results no matter the game.

Post a picture/link to a picture of your everdrive board front and back to help determine if it's fake.

Try downloading the roms from a new source, like the smokemonster everdrive pack. These are all thoroughly tested to be working on the everdrive and should help narrow down the issue.

Smokemonster pack is good, but I wouldn't say that all roms in it are working. I had to fix the header on a couple of them (Dragon Warrior III, Holy Diver, and Flintstones Rescue of Dino and Hoppy, for example). The set also includes some non-hacked Vs. roms that don't work normally or only work partially with incorrect colors.

Holy Diver works for me without any edits. I haven't tried the others, can test later tonight. Maybe you have an older version of the pack?

I know the new packs have been going through some major testing revisions, especially FDS games.

It was a few weeks ago when I downloaded it, but I had to use an extended iNES header and assign a sub mapper to get Holy Diver working. 4.7 is the version I have been using.

Edit: I tried Holy Diver again and it worked the first time I tried it. Either it was updated, or it was because I switched from a Toshiba to a Sandisk SD card.
