    Try a different SD card, it seems the bootloader does not recognize the current one. Might be a compatibility issue.

    Try any SD. The compatibility is firmware dependent, not hardware.

    Do you have something on NOR already? Try formatting the NOR first, then.

    no, i do not have an nes set preinstalled.

    pressing select will only delete the highlighted game. Try a full NOR format by pressing start.

    yes, NOR is a persistent flash storage, the firmware is not flashed to NOR
