    Hello I've been googling for the past two days and still haven't found a solution that worked. My EZ Flash IV (Model #: EZ402 2006.03) will not write to the NOR. I'm trying to get Mother 3 to write and after about a minute after using the Select+A to write it to NOR it finishes and when I go back to the SD Card folder it is not there like others say it is.
    I've tried using version 1.71, 1.72, and 1.74 with the same results. Nothing seems to work so maybe it's a hardware issue? Just wanted to see if anyone might know something else to try since this was the whole reason I bought an EZ Flash IV in the first place.


    Here's a picture of the cart just in case it's relevant: http://img.alibaba.com/img/pb/013/856/576/576856013_459.jpg
    I'm also using a microSD > miniSD adapter if that's relevant.
    Thanks for reading and any possible info you could spare.

    If you can write other games to the NOR then it's probably a rom issue. Try to fix the header and write it to NOR again. If you can't write any game to NOR, try to flash 1.74 if you're on 1.72 and 1.72 if you're on 1.74

    Here's an archive with both 1.72 and 1.74 pre-patched with the clearlooks skin

    I've tried flashing to every version and nothing changes; it just writes it quickly but never appears where it's supposed to. It doesn't write any other game to the NOR either.

    Sounds like there's something wrong with the card then. As far as I know, there's only two version of the EZ-Flash IV at the moment. And the solution would be 1.72 or 1.74. I used to have the same problem and it got fixed when I used the Clearlooks v5 1.74 firmware

    Krous -

    Did you get this figured out? I've just gotten a new EZIV and have the exact same problem. I've tried almost everything...

    I have seen other posts saying the similar problem. One guy said that he used his EZ4 working on his GBA and encountered this problem. By trying some new alkalines in the GBAs, the NOR worked perfectly fine. So this might be a solution.
    Also the gba roms need to be added patches by the EZ4_Client before they can be written into the NOR. ALso might be the reason.
