Turbo EverDrive / General Errors and sound problems
« on: June 03, 2018, 07:43 PM »
Hey,
I've got the turbo everdrive v2.5, and i'm having quite a lot of trouble with it.
First, i sometimes get random errors, such as 0B, 0C, 00 for no reason.
Some games work fine (I mostly tried After Burner as a test, which works fine with one card), with some cards it hangs after a few minutes, and with all cards after a reset they stop working until i try resetting again.
With Bonk (PC-Genjin rom), the sound just disappers after a second, and comes back after i press run, but stuck on the last note. This happens with all cards.
I've tried a regular card, street fighter championship edition and it works just fine.
Sadly i have this everdrive for a while and i cant enjoy it. My first PCE was defective, and with the new one that fine i cant use it :(
The card that works best is a 4gb Toshiba formatted FAT 32 with 32kb cluster.
Any ideas? should i open a repair case?
Thank you!

Turbo EverDrive / Error with PC-E
« on: July 11, 2017, 07:07 PM »
Hey,
I've finally recevied my PCE and i was trying to use my new TED on it. The first SD card gave me an I/O error, so i tried another  one (my N8 card) which gets stuck on a purple screen.
I was looking around and i saw Krikzz suggest holding 1+2 while booting and it does boot into the menu, but when i try to load a game i get an error 0F, as you can see in the photo. Sadly i dont have any other device to check with (but the seller clamied it was working fine) and no games (waiting for them to arrive).
Is the TED defective? the console? what can be done? i tried reformatting both cards but no change.



Thank you!

Mega EverDrive / Fat system not found
« on: November 06, 2016, 11:01 PM »
Hey,
I want to switch my microsd card to a smaller one (i have 32gb in, and only 1 gb in use), after i tried 2 different cards i got the same error F6 - Fat system not found.
Should i use any formatter for this? i used the windows one to format to fat32.

Mega EverDrive / Everdrive keep freezing?
« on: August 04, 2016, 09:33 PM »
I've got a Mega Everdrive V2 for quite sometime now, and recently it keeps freezing after a few seconds, in the OS or in game.
Sometime it gets stuck on a purple screen.
I've got a Model 1 + CD setup, with an RGB cable if that makes a difference.
What should i try? what can i check?

EverDrive N8 / Nes (72-pin) to Famicom (60-pin) converter mod
« on: May 14, 2016, 11:33 AM »
Now updated with compatibility fix, thanks to GadgetUK! check out his YouTube channel!

I recently bought myself a Famicom AV to be RGB modded later on. I had the N8 NES edition, and didn't want to buy another Everdrive or trade it for a Famicom edition, so i bought a converter.
As you know, the converters don't support expansion audio or MMC5 games, but mods are available in order to restore functionality.
After following a guide, i saw that it didn't really work, so i looked for another guide.. in the end i found 4 guides saying different stuff. only one really worked, so i decided to show you guys exactly what to do. here we go:

What you need:
Soldering Iron and basic soldering skill
Solder
Wire, i recommend Kynar wire
2 10k ohm resistors (you can try out different ones, but the 10K are usually the one recommended)
Copper Tape
Phillips head screwdriver
A small file

I bought a shielded converter, and i would recommend it too.

This is the front. we will work on the back side of the converter.
Turn it around, there might be a sticker. behind the sticker there are two Philips head screws, just unscrew them.

Sadly i wasn't smart enough to take a picture before hand, so i will show you the finished mod. (as you can see i have a lot of soldering spots there, that's the main reason i wanted to make this guide)


NOTE: The pins are counted backwards on the NES side (Left to Right) and on the Famicom side (Right to left)!

For expansion audio:
Between pin 46 and 45 on the Famicom side, cut the connection by scraping it off (or any other method you know of)
Solder a resistor between pin 46 on the Famicom side and pin 54 on the NES side.
Solder a second resistor between pin 45 on the Famicom side, and the previous resistor leg near the Famicom side.
That's it!

For MMC5 game support:
Take two wires and cut them to size.
Cut the connection between pin 48 and pin 49 on the Famicom side buy scarping it off (or any other method you know of)
Solder one end of the wire to pin 48 on the Famicom side, and the other end to pin 57 on the NES side.
Solder one end of the other wire to pin 49 on the Famicom side, and the other to pin 58 on the NES side.
That's it!

Compatibility Fix
There were some reports of incompatibility with some of the games. A Krikzz forum user named GadgetUK has researched it and came up with a great solution. Even if you done seem to have any problems i would recommend doing this.

Now we need the front side of the converter (The side we didn't work on)

Take your copper tape and cut it to size, so it fills the entire PCB on the front but without touching any of the pins.
Tape it on and check for continuity with any of the pins. if there is, try to see where they have a connection and cut it.
Try to remove any bumps or air bubbles by going over it with something straight. If you cant make it 100% its ok, but i had to redo mine since it wasnt covering everything as it suppose. Try to do it as best as you can.
Next, we need to solder the tape to pin 1 on the NES side.
This is my final result (after i re-taped it, and so far so good):


If You Bought the Shielded Converter
You will need to file some of the plastic in order to close it back up.
If you taped the copper tape just make holes in the tape using the screws.
It might be not so pretty, but i don't see any other way.
This is how i did mine:

Make sure you measure the height and width of it, so you wont file too much or too little.

When you are done, close everything, connect a game with MMC5, or the Everdrive with a game that has expansion audio support, and see if everything worked. If not, you should check that everything is connected and that the connection between the pins on the Famicom side is disconnected.

Hope it helped some of you, and thanks again to GadgetUK for the fix!
