Question Saved Game Transfer

sponsored links

I've recently got a 16Mb Nexus memory card, and a link cable for transfering save files to my P.C.
Ive connected it up as the instructions say, with the dc switched on, the controller with the memory card plugged in, and the lead going from the memory card to the P.C. printer port, but when i run the software it just keeps responding with a line error, and asks me to recheck my connections.
The connections are o.k., and i've tried changing the port settings to EPP, but it still doesn't see it.
I've also tried changing the speed ratio in the settings, but nothing i do seems to make any difference.
Has anyone else had this problem, or does anyone know of a possible solution.

I had the same problem. I tried emailing the place I bought it from and the place that makes it, but they both told me that I'm not following the instructions and to try again. I finally found something that helped, credit card disute forms

I recomend using email with the Dreamcast to tranfer the saves to a PC. Then making a web site to download them. Use to host, as it is compatable with the saves. Don't forget, you need a VMI and VMS save to download them correctly. Go here for more info: ***********

Thanks, I hadn't thought of just e-mailing them, but it sounds like it will save me a lot of messing about.

Does the software come up at all or do you just get an error? Because the software should run weather or not the card is connected. I got mine from, as well as the software and I've never had a problem.

That's an interesting little faq on dcemu, but it looks like an awfull lot of extra work. If you have an Angelfire account there's a much easier way then that. Just go to: ******** on your DC and use it to upload whatever save files you want. A .vmi file will be created and uploaded to your account with each file you upload as well. It can run a little slow but is definitely faster than sending emails back and forth. Then just make sure the .VMS and .VMI save is in the same directory. "view" or create a link to the .vmi file and it will start the d/l for your DC.
