USB GDROM boot menu issue

Post#1 » Thu Dec 21, 2017 3:57 pm

Hi,

I just got my USB GDROM today and have it installed to DC. But I'm not able to start my DC to boot menu. I have formatted my USB stick to FAT32, 64Kb Clustersize; and download the root_init2.rar from the homesite, then extract the files to root directory of USB stick. Everytime when i start my DC. It just load the Dreamcast icon then jump to CD player, not even shows the SEGA icon. Does anyone get any idea?

Hmm sounds like you did everything right. Other than trying a different usb stick you will likely need to email dr.mnemo@gmail.com. You are using the top usb port right?

yes, I use the top usb port. I also tried different usb sticks(partition MBR), put the firmware update file USB-GDROM_fw_17-09-05.bin in to root directory location. No idea which part i did wrong....; would it be the issue of USB GDrom itself?

Its possible. Uninstall and reinstall the usb-gdrom, Make sure you pushed it down securely on the pins. Make sure nothing is crooked. If that still doesnt work you should email mnemo to get a replacement shipped.
