what does dump mean?


Recommended Posts

I don't know what you have. You'd have to tell us something about it. Maybe post pictures?


As for what dump means? in computers? It's a term that means data is extracted from some device and placed on a different device. Akin to copying. Typically a full copy of something.


In the context of classic gaming and old systems, it means the information in a cartridge or on a disk is copied to a file that sits on a modern-day PC.


Ex. "We dumped the Asteroids' rom. And here are the files."
