Are the bad games breaking consistantly and the good ones running consistantly? If so probably a bad image. If its all random then try the power fix. You will need to remove the power supply, clean with 99% alchohol and the pins need to be bent gently with needle nose pliers toward the rear of the console. Reinstall everything.


Also is your PNY using 64 cluster size?

I will look into the power supply but yes it is using 64k clusters. The good games work all the time but the other ones seem to freeze before I actually get to play. It usually happens on a loading screen before the start menu or sometimes when the sega logo comes up

Yeah I only used GDI’s from the trurip or the one other place. I don’t have any CDI’s installed

You might try a different usb drive too just as a test.

I got it to work, I think it was the flash drive. I was using the PNY 256GB and switched to a Sandisk cruder and everything seems to work great now! Except the fishing controller which still is not letting me scroll.
