    Default US Super Nintendo Backup Device

    I am looking for a device that would play ROMs that were downloaded from the internet to floppy on the SNES unit. I have been to a site (http://tototek.com/) that sells something called octor SF3 (32M) for NTSC SFC. However the site is not very clear on what any of it's products do or how they do whatever they do. The images are also very small so you cannot really see what you are purchasing all too well.

    Does anyone have a recomendation on what to purchase to play SNES ROMs off Floppy on the SNES unit. If you do have a recomendation, do you have a reliable site to purchase it from?

    Thanks

    This has been asked a few times ... sounds like a guide is in order.

    Until I'm done with that, check out Rob Webb's page.

    Tototek is very slow to deal, I have bought copiers from both he and Rob Webb and I was overall more pleased with Rob's site.

    I kinda thought that the Tototek site was slow and possibly a dead page since it hasn't been updated since 2002. That is why I was a bit skeptical of ordering from them. I assume they are located somewhere in Asia since every time I go to the site my browser wants to download a font. I will give Rob's site a visit. -Thanks

    If anyone else has a idea on what the best device to use is please feel free to mention it here.

    I would recommend a Super Wild Card first, either a DX or a DX2, doesn't matter. They are (in my experience) the easiest and most reliable units to use.

    After that, the Game Doctor series are also pretty good. I think they go from 1-7, the later the number the newer the unit. Also, the more RAM the unit has, the bigger the ROMs are that you can play.
