  1. It is still within the return period, but I do not feel comfortable returning it. It is possible I got a system that had an inherent problem with it, but it is also possible that I made some mistake that caused the problem. I would not return it unless I knew for sure that I was not the genesis of the problem. I checked out the video and I will give the reset button a try and see what that might do. Thanks for the information.
  2. In my paperwork, that came with the system, they recommended 16 GB or smaller. That is why I used a 16GB. I then tried an 8GB. I have also tried using different cards in each size as well as different formats tried on each.
  3. The update will just load in an endless loop. It says the upload is happening, the status bar fills to three quarters and then it goes to the floating multicolored circle... Then after a while it disappears and the status bar comes back and the cycle repeats. I am not sure what it is that I have done wrong or what the next steps to try to fix it should be. I was using a 16gb SD card because I read somewhere it had to be that or smaller, but now I feel like some places are saying 8 or smaller. Should I just try with a different smaller card? I have tried stopping the update, rebooting the console, rebooting the system without the card inserted(just get "ERROR"), and resetting to factory through the menu that comes up when you hold the fire button for three seconds. LATER ADDED:I tried different SD cards, different formats, removing the update and replacing it with the GAME file... I have tried different size SD cards, different formats, and mixed and matched the two. I simply cannot get it to do the update. At this point I would be happy just to restore it to factory default, but there does not seem to be a way to do that. It is not the end of the world, but it is a bummer. It is my own fault because I chose to try the update and I knew there was a risk it would not work properly.
  4. I never did get it to work properly. I tried different SD cards, different formats, removing the update and replacing it with the GAME file... sadly I have had no progress. I am still tinkering with it when I have time because I am sure there is a way to get it to do what I want, but I am just not experienced enough to get the results.
  5. Thank you for the reply. I had actually come across this video once before, but I gave it another viewing at your suggestion. I did find it helpful because it at least confirmed that I had completed the same original steps as he did. It sounds like his machine acted the same way initially, but then rebooted to the atGames screen. My machine just never takes this next step. It just starts over again. I did once, briefly, see a literal flash of the atGames symbol across the screen, but then it was back to before. I am not super experienced, so it is possible I have loaded the files wrong or something.
  6. The update file I used was the one provided in this thread. I have heard people say that the system can be finicky, so I have tried different SD cards, reformatting the card to various file systems(exFAT, FAT32,etc.), and redownloading the update file in case something went amiss in my original download. I am sure the answer is that I am missing something or not taking some step that might occur to me if I was more experienced. It is fun to learn more, but also can be a little trying because it is hard to problem solve while still in the early stages. I will keep trying because I am confident it will work eventually, I just have to figure it out. I appreciate any advice or ideas for what to try next.
  7. Hi all, So, I have gotten myself into a bit of a situation. I bought the Atari Flashback 9 with HDMI output. I played it for a while and everything worked just fine. Then I followed the directions to download the update onto an SD card and when I turned it back on I got the prompt for the update and chose "yes". Then the little updating circle came on screen and everything seemed fine. Sadly, it has turned out that was the end of my smooth-sailing. The update will just load in an endless loop. It says the upload is happening, the status bar fills to three quarters and then it goes to the floating multicolored circle... Then after a while it disappears and the status bar comes back and the cycle repeats. I am not sure what it is that I have done wrong or what the next steps to try to fix it should be. I was using a 16gb SD card because I read somewhere it had to be that or smaller, but now I feel like some places are saying 8 or smaller. Should I just try with a different smaller card? I have tried stopping the update, rebooting the console, rebooting the system without the card inserted(just get "ERROR"), and resetting to factory through the menu that comes up when you hold the fire button for three seconds. Nothing seems to work, so I am hoping someone here may have some helpful tips or pointers. I am sorry my post is Tolstoy length, but I wanted to cover anything that may be relevant. Thank you in advance for any ideas.
