Does it work when you go back to v0.1.7e?

I have download firmware v0.1.7e and I paste it. This works well (I puss X and the system information says version 0.1.7.d... Is this possible?).

Open your sd2snes and take pictures of both sides,maybe its a clone?
Run diagnostic firmware and post results here as pictures.
And take pictures of the root of your sdcard and inside the sd2snes folder so we can check it.

I have take pictures of the flashcard and also the steps that I do to update the firmware 1.8
I think that I have the same problem doing the paste of diagnosis program, so I have put a picture of the test included in my roms.

El firmware de diagnosis no tiene ne nada que ver con la rom que has ejecutado.

Haz una cosa, formatea esa tarjeta con Windows y no con MAC y mete sólo la carpeta sd2snes del firmware 1.8.0

Probaré a formatear, aunque me desconcierta que sí funcione el 1.7

La imagen es de un test sobre la electrónica. No consigo que funcione el firmware de diagnosis. ¿ Tan solo hay que pegar los archivos del firmware de diagnosis en la carpeta sd2snes y reemplazar?

Afaik there's no such thing as a "fake" SD2SNES, since the schematics and the software of the SD2SNES are publicly available... so anyone can build one. And since anyone can build one and because there are demands for such kind of hardware, cheaply produced Chinese versions exist. But those versions are NOT "incompatible with 1.8 features" - in fact the compatibility is the same as with every SD2SNES.

That being said... : because of the cheap production process and the lack of quality checks throughout the process those Chinese SD2SNES much more often tend to break or show unexpected behavior than the better quality version produced (and supported) by krikzz. And since neither krikzz nor ikari_01 can guarantee any decent build quality for those Chinese cheapos (not to mention: most of the time the seller can't do it himself), you'll be on your own for any of these.

Are you sure it is false ?. I bought it second hand on ebay and the seller told me that he had bought it on the krikzz website.

The Tianqiu battery type is a big indicator on that particular board that it could be a Chinese clone. Either the battery was changed or it's quite possible the seller was lying to you.

My fake SD2SNES works with 1.8. There is very little difference between the boards other than a few different sourced surface mount resistors used. Most of the issues on this forum come from incompatible SD cards or they're formatted/installed wrong.

I have tried with another SD card and I do format also, but I can get it. Which type of problems are related with the wrong format or install?

If you've tried another SD card and verified that the SD card is in fact formatted as fat32 and using the proper x:\sd2snes file structure then you definitely have bigger issues. I was just pointing out that people in the past were blaming the maker of the boards when in reality it was user error with the setup of the SD2SNES.
