    Hello folks!

    Why doesn't my GBP or GBC games save correctly in my Ez Flash Omega?
    Everytime I save normally in-game and then pressing L+R and wait around 5 seconds and then exit to return to main menu.
    Sometimes the save still exists when loading some games but will delete next time or after a few times saved. Playing another game and after saving will also cause other save files to be deleted.
    For GBA games they all save and load without issues even after altering games.
    What's wrong with GBP and GBC games? Is it the Goomba Color emulator that can't save correctly?
    All GBP and GBC games are tested on my computer first so it creates the correct save file size before I move them to my Ez flash Omega.
    Any helps would be appreciated!
    Thanks!

    The only thing I'd recommend is trying out a different microSD card. There's nothing about the built-in emulator that should have problems saving.

    I have added more GBC games and explored more about the save feature and L+R 5+ seconds and then exit back to main menu. It strangely seems to work now without losing my save files on multiple GBC games!
    Not sure what was wrong or I maybe did wrong in the beginning! It was no issue for my genuine Samsung 32 gb micro sd card since it was a new one I bought this year.
    Thanks for your input anyway :D

    Please help, i have an ez flash omega with the latest fw and micro sd class 10 sandisk 8gb. It only reads 12 games but higher than that it boots other games into a white screen. I tried everything, downgrade fw, change micro sd, format to exfat and fat but then, i can only run 12 games. Please i really need help.

    Are the roms clean roms? Try putting them on folders?

    You save in-game and click L + R and then waiting 5 seconds then clock exit. This is how GB and GBC games save to the memory card in my experience.

    The original game rom and not a modified rom (hack). Or try to edit the names of the games like removing special characters like (U)! or something like that.

    I already did that, maybe i received a defective ez flash omega, or maybe it is by choosing the right micro sd card. I dont know the reason why it only runs the first 12 games.

    Have you tried to put the games on folders? Also test the games on your computer to see if they works before putting them to the Ez.
