.ROM files and .CAR files... what's the difference?


Recommended Posts

What is the difference? Not all sources of ROMs make a distinction, and I have been able to "plug" .rom dumps of cartridges just fine into emulators like Altirra as cartridges. I do notice though, that some sites provide both a .rom and a .car for a dump of a cartridge. What's the difference, when should each be used and why?
