    I just bought an EZ Flash Omega. I have gotten the files from the website and updated the kernel ok, but no roms will work when booted from the SD card they just go to white screen after loading. If I transfer to the nor i can load the same ROM that failed from the SD card.

    Is the flash cart bad or is there something else I can do?

    I have a 4gb card (original card from my 3DS), formatted FAT 32 32kb. The folders have less than 512 games per folder. I made a "games" folder, then split roms up as GB, GBC, GBA, NES. The roms show up and seem to have no issues with the file structure, but every file I try to load fails. NES, GB, GBC, and GBA extensions all boot to white.

    Thanks for any help.

    You can use some isopropyl alcohol and clean the cartridge pins.

    Power up the console with SELECT pressed, you will enter the safe mode of EZ-FLSH OMEGA.
    choose the 2nd option(test psram), DO NOT CHOOSE THE 1ST OPTION!!!!!!

    if it display any error, contact the dealer for a replacement.

    I have tried 3 different SD cards, 2 sandisk (16GB and 32GB) and 1 toshiba (4GB) with same results.

    When testing the PSRAM it checks ok and when writing ROM to NOR it plays. It is only giving me problems with games on the SD card.

    I have made the card with only 5 games in a folder called POKEMON, it's a mix of pokemon ROMs from GB, GBC, and GBA. All renamed to have no special characters and short names.

    None play, they just go to white screen. I did notice if I hold L while starting all of the games with A they go to a gameboy boot screen with garbled "NINTENDO" text at the bottom, and then freeze on that screen.

    What else can I do?

    Your problem is still hardware related, I have been informed that you have contacted your dealer, you can get a replacement for sure.
