After trying a bunch various options and having someone else try to convert as well, this is my list of ones that don't load or work. It appears others have noted the same issues with some of these as well so perhaps there will be a fix or someone can diagnose the issue:

 

-American Hero (converted to jcp but refuses to load at all) *I believe the initial rip I have is encrypted

-Black Ice White Noise (boots to black screen) *It appears others have noted this issue. Ive tried 3 separate BIWN files (V18, V19, and V23)

-JagMIND Bomb Squad (hangs on the first screen and won't go past, game loads just not past this portion)

-Robinson's Requiem (will not convert properly to jcd) *Ripped from the original game, converted to jcd but refuses to load on the GD

-Ocean Depths (freezes at initial load screen and will not go past)

-Vid Grid (hangs at "loading" screen) *It appears others have noted this issue also, Ive tried my own rip from the original CD and 2 other rips I've found and all are the same in the end.

-World Tour Racing (boots to a black screen after ATARI logo) *others have noted this as well, I have tried 2 different rips of this one

ImgBurn should have no problem making a cue and bin for Jaguar cds.  You want to click on create image file from disc, then you want to create a bin file from that.  It will create a cue with it, and the cue file is the one you want to drag and drop on cd2jcd.  I don't know if there's something different you have to do with Jag cds, as I don't own any actual jag cds to try.  This will get you a cue and bin file though that are formats that work with cd2jcd. 

As I said IMGBURN does not work. I’m testing with Dragons Lair and the resulting bin cue is not accepted by cd2jcd

i got an error while attempting to make 'jaguar hockey'

 

D:\Desktop\cd2jcd>cd2jcd hockey.cdi
Opening hockey.cdi... valid CD image.

Error: Too many tracks in image (93), max 81 tracks.

 

Ooh, that is interesting. I have a limit of 81 tracks for CD images currently, I'll have to increase that if it uses more. If you can (privately) provide a link to the image I'll take a look.

Just to confirm I should not try to update the firmware of my JagSD cart, correct?

 

I've removed the firmware update for the older carts, just hang tight until I sort it out. :)

Checked this morning to see if I have one of the 'older' carts, looks like I do, I shall wait in anticipation!

 

Have many people tried converting free-to-download homebrew for the CD yet? Or do they fall foul of being iso files? I would like to try some when the update is available.

I have 2 versions/files and neither WTR will convert with cd2jcd without errors. 

 

But I think others have mentioned that game not working for them too. I have a good working CD of the game as well and tried ripping that and it did the same thing. One of the versions I have requires a boot disc so maybe I should rip that one instead?

The image I had certainly converted, and others have reported the same, so it's a bad image in some way. The does not run anyway, mind you...

Another version to try for the older carts --

 

https://www.retrohq.co.uk/products/jaggd/............zip

 

** REMOVED ** I'm happy this is working and it's only confusing matters. If you have the "Press OPTION for firmware update." while booting, THEN DO THIS.

 

I've tested this and it's working on my downgraded dev cart, so it should be good for everyone now. But if I could have confirmation before I start shouting about it, please! :)

 

** Anyone who tested the previous version, please rename to firmware.ovr as it will not update the microcontroller firmware correctly without this change. Anyone installing from a regular previous firmware, just use as is **

Hi,

Firstly, thank you very much for your continued development of this great cart!

 

Just updated mine and have tried both Baldies and Blue Lightning.  Neither worked first time, but both worked subsequently.  Great stuff.

 

I have noticed one peculiarity though.  I no longer seem to have background audio to my favourite Jag game Super Burnout...?

 

Any thoughts please?

 

Thanks again.

Remind me, just put the firmware.ovr file in the SD card root? I will try tomorrow on my SD and report back :)

Unless you tried the previous update and had it fail leaving you on the previous menu version but new microcontroller firmware version just leave it as .upd, otherwise, yes.

If the firmware update from yesterday works fine aside from some games not loading would we need to still do this new update today

Hi SainT, I tried this, version information says: firmware v1. 09, menu v1. 07 asic v1. 06 stub v1. 03, has that installed correctly? 

 

The few CD games I've tried is just a black screen. But that might be just me. If anyone has any freeware jcd they definitely got working and willing to share, it would be helpful to test out thanks. 

 

EDIT: Ignore me, fasting brain. I think what I've done is mistakenly thought I had an old cart when I have a new one. I will "attempt" to patch to the one I should be on...

I suspect you have a new cart. Hit OPTION when prompted to on boot up and use the link provided.

 

DO NOT USE THIS IF YOU HAVE A NEWER CART, IT WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY.

 

** Previous links removed for my sanity. **
