Title: Everdrive Startup Issues
Post by: ultpaladin on May 23, 2020, 04:49 AM
I recently bought an Everdrive X7 for the Game Gear from Stone Age Gamer.  It worked for a few times but now when it starts up, it keeps flashing "OS init..." and never gets to the menu screen. 

While the everdrive was still working, I also started Shining Force 2 but when I went back to check, there was no save file created.  I thought this issue was fixed for the X7.  The "OS init" issue started happening all the time after I played Shining Force 2 as well.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

The very first thing I would try is reformatting the micro SD card with the Panasonic Formatter. Then drop back on 1 or 2 known good/clean ROMs and test again. It could be anything from corruption on the SD card to contact issues that are causing your problem. It would be best to rule some of these out before we assume it is the hardware.
