Try using FW v0.24a:  http://www.mediafire.com/file/uzij95yjx1kkmhr/Retrode-v0.24a.zip

Or FW v0.24b:  http://www.mediafire.com/file/9u4jb0bnfb7o843/Retrode-v0.24b.zip

If the cart is not detecting as SMS, then modify the .CFG file to "[forceSystem] sms".

If the cart is not detecting the proper size, then modify the .CFG file to "[forceSize] 4".

You need to forceSystem before forceSize will work.

EDIT:  I was running v0.25a and my SMS cart wasn't detecting.  I thought it might be the code changes but I was wrong.  The v0.25a works ok.  My test SMS cart and plugin needed to be reseated a few times and it works.

I am on 0.25a, it works ok for other SMS carts, this is the first I've had issues with. Will try and see if I can get the forcesize thing working.

Have you tried changing the [forceSize] option in retrode.cfg to the size it should be?

I did briefly, but wasn’t able to save the file. I’ll try it again this evening/tomorrow hopefully, have done some more digging and looks like there might be a workaround to that...

Hi guys, wondering if anyone can help me, have been attempting to dump a master system copy of Chuck Rock with no success. Am able to pull the ROM file across however it's not readable by my emulator, and it's only 32kb (rather than the 512kb it should be). No match on known Checksum info either (Although I've transferred it multiple times and each time files are identical). Have cleaned the cartridge also, but made no difference.

Is there anything else I can be doing to try and get this game across properly? Apologies if this is a really stupid/basic question, very new to Retrode.

Is anyone ever going to consider making a few GG plugins and selling them at a profit for the less technical of us out there?

Realize this isn't a perfect solution for you, but the dragonbox.de SMS plugins (https://www.dragonbox.de/en/137-retrode2-sms-plugin-cart-reader.html) do still contain the gamegear cart slot holes. So you could get that, buy the gamegear connector from ebay that skaman linked and then make one yourself, or pay someone online to do it for you.

Yeah I did manage to get it to work on another computer early on; I just wanted to figure out what happened on my main one and offer a solution to others if they come across the same problem.

It looks like "try a different computer" is the solution to offer people in this situation

At this point the easiest solution is to try on a different computer. I have seen suggestions to uninstall the usb driver (as a whole, i.e., the driver that controls all of your usb ports) and reinstall as a potential fix, but that is probably more work than you want.

My only other suggestion would be to try a different USB cable - - - sorry mate
