Re: [USB GDROM] Troubleshooting & Firmware updates

Thank you RXShorty and Xiden!
That tips solve me half of problems =D
So, I used the MiniAide Fat32 Formatter program to format my USB pen, and I also notice that the GDI Folder structure was wrong.
I needed to put like: "disc.gdi", "track01.bin", "track02.bin", "track..... etc.".
Now is working good!
One more time thank you for the help =D

So, any news/info on the "When use Button as Lid switch..." feature, that seems to have been added with one of the more recent firmware updates? Does anyone know how this actually works?

I'm a little concerned to try the new firmware, as one time my unit refused to work at all after one of these updates. "Never change a running system" they say, right?! ;)

I use the existing built in DC switch as my lid switch. Never tried a button. I have latest firmware (I beta tested). Everything works fine from my tests. Did D2 Disc Swap, Ran Windows CE Games fine, CDI games fine, Disc Swaped Gameshark games fine.

Okay, but frankly that doesn't answer my question. I know, that the unit is capable of "emulating" disc swapping. But since I don't have the switch soldered to the hardware, I am curious about the newly added button workaround.

On a sidenote: a changelog for the firmware updates would be really nice.

Then you might ask on assembler games then https://assemblergames.com/threads/usb- ... ead.56946/
Also MNEMO didn't include a changelog with his recent firmware.

FYI putting the lid switch on is super easy.
