Dumping MD Mulit-Carts
« on: 04/Jan/2016 07:42:47 PM »
Hi,
Apologies if there is a topic on this somewhere else but couldn't see one after a quick look. Has anyone had any joy dumping MD multi-carts?
I have a number of Russian multi carts and when I try and dump them using the retrode I get a working rom which contains the menu and only one of the games
Any help is greatly appreciated
Thanks
TR

What you get out of the Retrode is basically what the cart exposes to the outside. Does the cart have any obvious mapping hardware on board? Otherwise, understanding, detecting and controlling such switching mechanism is nigh impossible from Retrode's side.

I no longer sell the Retrode. For sales inquiries, please contact our friends at DragonBox.

Thanks for your reply.
No, there is no obvious mapping hardware on the outside of the cart, anything internal is beyond my simple mind!
I assumed that would be the case but just wanted to check if there were any configure changes I could try to get more out of the dump. I did try over-dumping the cart but that didn't help.
Again thanks for the response, think my chances of being able to dump these carts are slim.

"On the outside" - of course I mean the circuit board and not the plastic case :D

ah ok. I don't have a screw driver at the moment which will open star shaped screws, will see if I can get hold of one and then take a look
