I have a SD card full loaded with .bin files inserted into my Atari Flashback Portable but, when I click on the SD Reader, nothing loads. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Have you read through this FAQ?

Thank you...I had not referenced the FAQs. I just noticed I have a 16GB card while the FAQs specifically state 8GB or smaller. Could this affect whether or not the Flashback Portable reads the card?

Yes. I don't think anyone has got a 16gb to work. The problem is the 16gb is the most common entry level card size and 8gb or small is hard to find unless you hit amazon or ebay or you have an old one laying around.

 

No problem I could ask a million questions but most of the issues are having to do with card size or setting up the Games folder incorrectly.

I found if I popped the card out then in WHILE THE UNIT WAS ON, it then read a card it hadn't been reading. However, I am in no way responsible for any damage such a technique may cause to your device...

Terrible idea.
