    The NES app loads but can not find an SD card to load the games or saves.
    Please help.
    your app needs to be in that folder but your roms and saves etc NOT!
    they have to be directly under the SD card root in a folder named "fceugx". that folder has 3 subfolders: "cheats", "roms" and "saves". put in the content accordingly. hope that helps.

    Thanks for your help xxx.
    You were right I didn't have the exact set up required but another reason why it wasn't working was because I am using a Sandisk 8GB SD card (SDHC) which works fine with everything else so I used a smaller size card (256MB) and it worked fine.

    I will try and download the latest version of FCE Ultra onto the 8GB card and see if that works.

    what firmware are you on? as far as I know 8 GB cards only works with 4.0 upwards. I still use a 2 GB card cos I'm on 3.2.

    glad it finally works for you. happy to help.

    4.1e - I remember seeing the latest version of FCE Ultra and had a look at the readme file and it mentioned someting about SDHC cards somewhere in the previous upgrades. I downloaded it and it works perfectly.

    The only other problem i have had with this card is when i was trying to install starpatch. Other than that thats it.

    When downloading ROMS to play on the Wii. Is there a way to upload them onto the wii like on a modded xbox or do they have to be on a disc or sd card? If they can be uploaded onto the consol, how would one go about doing this and can wii games be done this way as well or do Wii games have to be loaded through a disc or sd card or usb flash drive everytime you want to play the game.

    Things to know:

    What is an emulator? A software emulator allows computer programs to run on a platform (computer architecture and/or operating system) other than the one for which they were originally written. Emulation refers to the ability of a program or device to imitate another program or device. Emulation tricks the software into believing that a device is really some other device.
    - Wikipedia

    What is required to start emulating consoles?
    BIOS: Depending on the console, a BIOS may be needed. The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is the software the console runs when it is first turned on. An example of an emulator that needs a BIOS is the Playstation. Obtaining this BIOS is illegal and will not be discussed on MiiTalk.

    Plug-ins: Plugins are responsible for different functions other than the core of the some emulators. For example, the N64 emulator, Project64, requires a video, sound, input, and (optionally) a netplay plug-in. Often you'll also have to configure them to run at the best balance of compatibility and performance.

    How fast does my computer need to be? Emulation is slow, so you will need a very fast computer to play modern (or some-what modern) games at perfect or reasonable speeds. Any computer nowadays can run SNES games and the like. A PS2 emulator will require a high-end computer.

    What about the games?
    There are two different types of files:

    ROMS: These are dumps of cartridge-based games such as NES, SNES, and N64 and their extensions are .nes, .smc, and .z64, respectively.

    ISOs: These are rips of discs such as Playstation, Playstation 2, Neo-Geo CD, and Gamecube. Their extensions may vary. Some examples are .iso, .bin, .mdf, and .ccd.

    Note: Since these programs are obviously not developed by the makers of the console, not all games will run as they should. Emulators, after all, are not perfect.

    Getting Started:

    These emulators have been personally tested and recommended by me. If you'd like to suggest an emulator for another console, don't hesitate to tell us!

    What are the best/most developed emulators?

    N64:
    Project64 [Homepage] - Plugins included.

    SNES:
    ZSNES [Homepage]

    GameBoy Advance:
    Visual Boy Advance [Homepage]

    Playstation:
    ePSXe [Homepage] - BIOS and plug-ins required.

    Playstation 2:
    PCSX2 [Homepage] - Requires a high-end computer; compatibility far from perfect at this point; BIOS and plug-ins required.

    Playing the games:

    If the emulator doesn't require plug-ins, you're almost set to go! There should be minimal configuration required and all you need to do is download a ROM or ISO.
    If the emulator do require plug-ins, then you should visit their respective forum for guidance.

    What about Wii?
    If you are looking for Wii emulators for your PC, sorry, you are out of luck as there is no such thing yet.
    However, there are emulators for some of the aforementioned consoles for the Wii. You'll need a prepackaged disc with roms and emulators, a GameCube controller, a GC memory card, and a modded Wii. To get the ISO, check your local torrent site


    If you'd like to see more information, visit The Emulator Zone or Zophar's Domain.
    If you've found something inaccurate or you'd like to add more information, feel free to let me know.

    Happy gaming!
