Mezmaron Posted February 10, 2022 Share Posted February 10, 2022 Hello, I just received my GameDrive today, and can't get it to load any ROMs. It appears as though it's loading them, the progress bar fills in the whole way, then nothing. I've tried 2 different SD cards, one being a 32GB PNY branded one, and an 8GB SanDisk brand, both with the same result. I've tried formatting them and copying the files on both PC and Mac, even trying the long format instead of quick on Windows. I started out trying ROM sets of .j64 and .jag and then sought out the "preferred" ROM/images set, also with the same result. It passes the memory test. I've cleaned the contacts with WD40 electronics contact cleaner and went over them carefully with a toothbrush. My cartridges generally load fine. I figured I would start a new thread since I couldn't find other threads mentioning this specific kind of behavior- it freezes after the loading bar progresses and not before like I've read about on the other threads, and I don't get any kind of red screen. One thing that may or not be be relevant is that I have also been unable to get my Jaguar CD to work as of late, which worked fine for many years. It powers on, the laser bumps around a little but the disc doesn't spin at all, and it will say that there's no CD inserted. The CD lid switch tests out fine, and overall I'm figuring the motor is trashed on it. I thought it might be worth mentioning since I've read about some cartridge port pins being potential issues. Any help is appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
