If you have any problems writing to carts, please check this list:
– Make sure you are on the latest firmware and using the latest GBxCart software
– Try a different USB port (non-USB 3.0) or USB cable
– Make sure your PC hasn’t gone to sleep or woken up from sleep (give it a quick reboot)
– Try another computer

M29W640 – 4MByte
Requires 3.3V to erase/program. Originally purchased as a “Shantae”. If you install a CR2032 coin cell battery, the battery will only last about 1 year as the cart consumes about 19uA for it’s data retention. You also need to change the solder bridge from “N” to “Y”.

256M29 / M29W256 / MX29GL256 – 32 MByte (4x 8MB Banks)
Requires 3.3V to erase/program. You need change the solder bridge from the top left to the one a little bit lower (as shown). Battery current consumption is 4uA, so a CR2032 will last about 5-6 years. Originally purchased as a “22 in 1” Pokemon cart (yellow cartridge). It appears this cart may only support the MBC5/3 mapper as some MBC1 games have a corrupted title screen like Game & Watch Gallery and the original Zelda Link’s Awakening freezes when saving.

If using a Multi-game creator, you need to power cycle GBxCart RW when writing to a different 8MB Bank. Also make sure you place all rom files and menu file in the same folder.

Notes on the Multi-game creator by the user -DC-Tschisomat:
1 . The Roms are not allowed to have more than 16 characters.
2. Only letters and numbers are displayed correctly in the menu.
3. Saving is possible for a maximum of 16 games
4. Only a maximum of 108 games may be written to the flash card, otherwise you will get a graphic error in the menu.
5. Every time you press Generate Compilation the Menu.gb file will be changed. So if you want to create a new MultiCard file you have to replace a fresh Menu.gb from downloaded Zip with the old one. Otherwise graphic error in the menu.

256L30B – 32MByte
Use 256L30B (2) if the first option doesn’t write to your cart. It seems there is a little issue which prohibits writing to certain variants of this cart. Originally purchased as a “150 Games, NES Classic” transparent red cart.
