    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

    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.

    Something just happened to me with the GBC emulator on EZ Flash Omega...
    I was playing a game and one day it said Memory Error - Please Delete Saves
    and it gave me a menu of SRAM saves to delete, yet it wouldn't even let me delete them when I pressed SELECT to do so.
    And I still don't know how it could have possibly run out of storage on a micro SD with over 2 GB of free storage.
    And the same day, on another game that I had been saving successfully, the save file is SUDDENLY GONE.
    I know it has something to do with a problem in the .esv file, but seriously... What the fuck.

    Did you wait roughly 3-5 seconds after opening the menu to exit the emulator or turn off the GBA?

    I always hit restart on the menu in order to have it save. However, I didn't make sure to wait a few seconds each time.

    You need to wait so that the FPGA on the cartridge can finish accessing the SD Card. If you don't it can become corrupted.
