Hey guys... I have 200 ROMs loaded on an 8g SD card, but when I use SD Card Browser on the 2600 Portable, it does nothing. Any ideas? Thanks!!!

Not sure a SDHC will work. I tried several old cards and ended up using a 1GB SD card. I also had to reformat it from scratch. Make sure the directory is called "Game".

format the SD card

 

make sure the first folder is called "Game"

 

make sure the ROMs have the first letter capitalized

Thank you good sir. My 8 hour flight in 15 minutes will be much better. Copied all games as-is into a games folder and that fixed it.

your welcome - also if you go to that link that groundtrooper posted on the 2nd post above, scroll down to the red font area of the first post for my AFP ROM pack which has 1001 working ROMs for the portable
