On X3 page at some point said it lacks dedicated sram chip so a part of the 8MB is used to simulate the save system.

Interesting, know we know what happens with the X3 when a rom too big is loaded.

The X5 or X7 is best suited for the usage OP wants to employ to the cart.

Main there is a bad connection between main and sub 32x pcbs, those flat cables are problematic at times.

If your main 32x pcb is VA0 you may need a termination adapter on the sega cd port, or a Sega CD connected.

You definitely played them without a 32x attached.

SMS games will always fail to boot when a 32x is being used.

I would love to see a video of your cheapo romcart running sms games through 32x.

The X5 acts as a real sms cart attached to a powerbase converter and tries to put the Mega Drive into SMS compatibility mode when a SMS game is loaded.
When a 32x is attached the SMS compatibility mode doesn't kick in.

People tried to bypass those issues with mods, but the results were not very good, several mega drives models still failed to load sms games and the ones that did load, had issues.

"How does master system and 32x support work?"
It doesn't work, the 32x need to be removed.

"Does the cart fit in the 32x add on / sms add on for the genesis?"
You need an sms adapter to use the master everdrive. The adapter fits the 32x but it will never boot.

"Can sms roms just load on a genesis?"
Yes, but some games will load to a black screen with just the audio because the Mega Drive VDP sms compatibility mode lacks one of the SMS video modes. Iirc f16 Fighting Falcon and SG-1000 games.

Try with other SD cards, if you get the same error, contact the seller, maybe your your Mega Everdrive is defective.

If it works with other sd cards we can blame your 32gb card.

Edit: also there is a chance of your sd card being a fake or had came damaged as well.

Some games will not work when the Mega Key is in software mode.

The Mega key operates in software mode when connected through a Sega 32x, or any other system the cart detect as incompatible with Megakey Hardware mode.

What console revision are you using?

I've got one of those, RTC never worked no matter what I did.
 I ended up removing the time crystal x402 (32.768Khz) and soldered another that I removed from an old motherboard, now it keeps time, although it gets behind, fixing some minutes after awhile is better than having to adjust it every time.

Delete the bin, rf and rbf files from sdcard root

Extract the entire MEGA folder from the OS zip file into sd card root.

OP should've posted edgba x5 mini, for my method to work it needs to be the game save file, not the goomba emulator save file.

I failed to notice the mini, my bad.

Follow lee4 instructions, then follow mine with the extracted saves.

With old crts those dots appears on overscan area. So not remember them is expected.

Put the save you want to import in a different folder in your sd card.

Load the menu, navigate to the target game and tap A once, select load only, navigate to the save file, tap A once, select copy to sram then press start.
The game should load with your save and backup to the save folder normally.

Everdrives presents the game to the hardware like a standard cart for most games. The unlicensed games software can detect this if the developer program it in.
I will edit this post with CRC of the pocket monster clean and cracked versions.

Some unlicensed games only works when launching using it's hardware cart, flash carta and emulators fails to run them.

Top fighter 2000 MK VIII is an example, the game locks up when a character is loaded with clean dump, only the "cracked" version works fine with Everdrives.

Those unlicensed game producers funnily enough didn't liked to see their games working on game copiers hence the software can detect if it is running on a cart or a flashcart/copier/emulator and lock itself up.

Of course emulators receive updates that tricks the software into thinking it's running on it's real cart.

On my x5, there is a "cracked" version that loads into game but it randomly freezes. Ntsc model 2.
