Just copy all the files to a folder using your PC.

So.

1. Format a SDcard with Fat16
2. Make some partions like: SD-MAIN and SD-SOFT
3. Copy all the files to the partition "SD-MAIN"

4. Copy your own files (games ect.) to the partion "SD-SOFT"

I'm having problems with my MegaFlashRom

* Often it seems the cart is not detected, and the MSX will just boot straight to basic.
* Sometimes while in the recovery menu the software will freeze in the middle of something - for instance it should say "Are you sure?" but I just get "Ar" and a frozen computer.

Are these common? Any solutions? I don't have these problems with other carts.

Edit: I left out that _sometimes_ when it is booting only to basic, you can still hold the up arrow and get to recovery. But not always - Just as often this doesn't work. Then after a while it just works again.

I have not seen these issues myself or in the forum. The MFR is a bit more sophisticated than a plain ROM game and I have had issues with e.g. GR8NET on a specific type of machine where it worked fine on most other machines. My first troubleshooting step would be to try it on a different MSX computer, so you know if it is the cart or the MSX causing the issues. Not sure if that is easy to achieve for you.

I think it is worth cleaning the contacts with isopropanol or similar thing and observe if issues are solved. There might be bad contacts

I have released a new version of recovery menu: RECOVERY V1.14
This version will automatically skip the firmware of some MSX models:

  • FS-A1
  • FS-A1F
  • HB-101
  • HB-201
  • HB-F1
  • HB-F1II
  • HB-F5
  • HB-F9S
  • Hitachi MH-H3
  • Mitsubishi F120
  • Mitsubishi ML-G1

This means that MegaFlashROM SCC+ SD will boot into Nextor in those models without holding any key to skip the firmware, or having to remove/disable any IC in the computer.

Install it typing in command line:
OPFXSD RECOVERY.ROM /i34

Please, report any problems you could find.
