Tested a Memory Pak and it reads out properly.  I compared the Mempak1.mpk dump against a dump using a different reader and the files matched.  I tested from the v0.18d (first firmware with memory pak support) up to v0.25.

Before attempting to read the memory pak, make sure your Config file [sramReadonly] or [saveReadonly] is set to 1.  Wannado mentions dumping your memory pak at least a couple times to confirm the contents before making any changes.

Refer to Wannado's Guide:  http://forum.retrode.org/index.php?topic=196.0

@skaman
Thank you for keeping the firmware current.  I just received my new Retrode v2 (my first cart Dumper) from dragonbox and something is a bit confusing to me.   I see you have a few system specefic firmwares which are significantly newer than the retrode.org official (v0.19 beta (2016-05-01)).
.
Is the recommended process to flash the latest system specific firmware you offer.... And for systems not offered to revert to the retrode official?
.
.thank you greatly!
.
edit RETRODE.CFG indicates that the following firmware shipped: .25a-beta - Config

The Retrode website hasn't been updated in years.  I don't have the ability to make changes to it.

The firmware updates are cumulative.  If your Retrode shipped with v0.25a beta then you should update to the v0.25a final here:  http://www.mediafire.com/file/i2a1q7dft3f4135/Retrode-v0.25a.zip
