There’s been a lot of response regarding my last post and the issues with my Dreamcast, but unfortunately none of it constructive. To reiterate, im still having these issues after trying my DC with:
•Two different motherboards.
•Pico PSU and stock PSU.
•Noctua fan and stock fan.
•Two different controller boards.
•No SD card extender tape.
•SD card formatted correctly, and reformatted again also using different size and branded cards.
•Original GDEmu is new from Deunan.
•Motherboard power pins cleaned several times.
•Correct power brick and values.
Despite all this testing, I am still having frequent in-game freezing issues and occasional crash back to boot/black screen.
So forgive me if my last post about using foil on the pins seemed obsurd, which i do understand it was, only because it was clearly was a last resort idea, but until there’s a clear resolution, what more is there to do here? Im always open to suggestions from techs and experts who have experience with troubleshooting DCs.
