    Default USB CopyNES from Retrousb

    Does anybody have one of these USB CopyNES's?

    I'm trying to decide if I want to buy one, does the save game dump feature allow you move saves to and from your NES carts? Or is it just a one way street to the computer and not back?

    The save games go both ways. Put in your Zelda cart, download the saved game to your computer, replace the battery (erasing the cart), then upload the save back to the cart. You can pull the save files from emulators to put onto carts too (except Mac Nestopia, since they are zipped for no reason).

    That's cool, does anybody know of a comparable item for any other systems? (especially the SNES) or a place to get pre-modded systems like that?

    is this the thing that lets you reflash carts with roms? Like the Reproduction guys? I wanted to get some made and was wondering if this was the tool that did that?

    Sorry for the thread crapping.

    From the site:

    Game and save dumper, reverse engineering tool, in system debugger, and cart flasher all in one!
    Survey says yes.

    As far as I know there is nothing like this for any other retro system. Dumping carts in other systems like Atari is much easier, and there arent as many mappers to RE, which were the original reasons for the system creation.

    The cart flashing is only for flash or ram carts like PowerPak Lite and Glider. You cannot reprogram a generic cart. The repro makers are replacing the memory chips on the carts with new ones. You want an eprom programmer and a soldering iron for those.
