    So what exactly is causing the false(?) positive on virus checkers, such as windows defender? and how can it be avoided without disabling the virus checker ?

    Someone mentioned UPX packers, which do seem to cause some false positives. Caution is always advised though, so a sandbox environment would be the way to go if you're worried.

    Does this tool find and upload the extra roms for you, or do you need to find them on your own?

    You need to get your own but it is super easy to find those.

    People report you can add up to 88 games before the UI starts to get wonky. 89-90+ seem to cause issues. From what I've read the system has a 512GB storage, with about 40-50% used up for the OS. The entire NES collection can easily fit on the remaining storage, the problem is that the UI seems to have a limit of 88-90 games and so far that hasn't been hacked or bypassed. Hopefully one of the devs can tackle that.

    my bad, it's actually more like 25% of the 512MB is used by OS.

    from a user on GAF: "It appears to have 512MB, of which ~384mb are accessible to the user and can be used for rom storage but it's also used for save state storage (each save is a couple of kb)."

    at the last step. windows detects the nes mini disconnecting and then reconnecting. and i found out the damn thing powered itself on instead of adding the games.
    anybody solved that issue yet ?

    My Windows Defender shows no positive. Maybe yours has been compromised.

    Thanks for the tool! I have been playing with it all night with no success. Proper driver are installed in the Windows 7 environment as verified by Zadig Utility. Follow the steps, but, when flashing the device boots itself up to the main menu as indicated by other users. .Net 3.5 Installed, Windows Reboot, Broken Pipe sometimes / sometimes not.... Advice?

    Note: I am using the USB cable that came with the NES Classic

    Ok, so I'm just wondering.... is this, or is it not a virus?

    Probably not, but in some cases windows defender wont shut up about it. - Once defender has removed the threat, it seems to transfer it to a different location, which is then flagged as a threat again constantly over and over. To stop it, I'm having to hunt out the quarantined file and manually delete that also.
    So I can't use this thing without being shouted at every couple of minutes about it being a virus.
