SMK Cart Bad Checksum
« on: 11/Jul/2013 03:41:58 AM »
I dusted off my Super Mario Kart cartridge, and plugged it into the retrode. Other carts work, but this one is giving me a bad checksum error, saying that the ROM is bad.

Is this a ROM error, is the save battery dead, or is there some sort of compatibility issue? I checked the list of compatibility list and it seemed to indicate that the cart should work.

Thanks,
-Squril

Did you just dust the cartridge off, or clean it as recommended?

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

The dusting off was more figurative. However, you were correct to assume I just picked it up and removed the dust cover (which several of my games have).

After several rounds of the suggested cleaning, which I have now done, I am still getting the same checksum error.
