OK well, i got my flashback about a week ago not only because I loved most of the pre bundled games that came with it, but the idea of being able to add roms sold me! Now onto the problem..... First let me say, YES ive read every FAQ, help, and such thread on this issue.

 

My flashback will NOT read my SD card UNLESS....I put the card in while the system is already powered on. Ive tried 3 diff cards; 8GB SDHC, 4GB SDHC, 2GB SD. Ive used the recommended formatter software, the games are in the correct extension (first letter uppercase, rest lowercase). Ive created the "game" folder. I know the roms work because like i said the system reads the card IF i put it in while the system is already on. Help on this please?

Have you tried

 

1. using the pre-built "game" folder from the top of the FAQ thread?

2. charging the battery overnight?

3. checking the write protect tab on your sd card?

I would start with the known good folder, try it out at least to see if it loads properly, then prune it down to what you want.

Figured it out..... The SD cards I was trying were "Transcend" brand. None of them worked. On a whim i tried with a "Kingston" brand 2gb card, worked! Prob solved. The Machine just seems to be very brand picky.
