Strange that you had to resort to using an XP machine to update the firmware. I am running Windows 7 Enterprise x64 and updated my Retrode 2 to the latest firmware just fine the other day.

To clarify, did you backup Sonic 3 & Knuckles whilst plugged into the XP computer, or did you plug the Retrode back into your Windows 7 computer and back them up?

Win 7 home pro 64 also no issues
The goal of database.trurip.org is to catalogue the software of as many classic systems as possible. database.trurip.org does not and will never host ISO or ROM downloads

I actually just used a Windows XP computer that I had access to, and I was able to easily follow the instructions, upgrade the firmware, and backup Sonic 3 & Knuckles. If there are any future firmware updates, do you want me to try to look into the problem that I was having with Windows 7 some more?

Thanks for you time,
Jimmy

Hi Jimmy,

Thanks for confirming the update under XP. If you want to help narrow down the issue with your Windows 7 machine, I suggest you start by answering all the open questions :)
