I think I did it the way it is described above (but with 64bit Jungo driver) but it didn't work....

if you mail the .inf file to s79 at live.nl , I'll have a look at it, but I don't have a gamereader myself anymore.

hap, if you read this... is there a possibility I could borrow your gamereader to try to get it to work on 64-bit windows?

in case anyone wondered how this ended so far... not good Sad

-Messing about with the driver wasn't much of an option since 64-bit Win is much stricter about it...

-I then tried using the USB support in Win 7's XP mode (Virtual PC) and VirtualBox running XP (32-bit), but sadly that did not work either.

Some infos about MSX Game Reader on Virtual Machines.

Tested sucessfully, excellent speed:
- Host hw machine and OS: Intel i-7 quad core, 16GB RAM, Windows 7 Professional 64bit;
- Virtualization: VMware Virtual Machine, made with free non-commercial VMware Player;
- Virtual Machine configuration: Windows XP 32bit, 1GB RAM, 40GB Hard Disk, USB support, LAN configured, belonging to the same home Workgroup;
- Emulator: blueMSX with MSX Game Reader support version;
- USB Game Reader: ASCII's MSX Game Reader, original Japanese drivers and MSX-PLAYer.
- Dumping tool: dvik & joyrex "MSX Game Reader ROM Dumper 0.5d (dumped and executed on blueMSX the Yie Ar Kung-Fu ROM).

This user uses Virtual PC instead: http://elpeo.jp/diary/20110911p01.html

Only reading that last post "a few" years later... Smile
I (google) translated the JP page and that user also seems to recommend vmware.
...so there seems to be some way to use the device yet, if you have vmware and some xp version.

btw.... the wiki here on msx.org states it never worked on win7 32-bit, but are we really sure about that? It did work on 32-bit vista...

Game Reader works on PC under Windows XP. Works also on VirtualBox. (Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack is required.)

I never could get it to run under VirtualBox back then (2010).
Good to know though.... if at least it works through vm's it's still useful.

I also think it would still work on any 32-bit Windows (but it requires messing with the driver if it's newer than XP).

Works fine for me on Mac OSX.

Can you upload again files replacement for window 7 32bit?
