    I have jEnesis installed and a few ROMS that download as a .bin file but when I unzip they are .bin.cpgz. Is that right?
    Anyway when I copy them onto my acekard the file name appears but nothing loads.

    Do not extract BIN files.

    So it is suppose to read .bin files? They look like they want extracting.

    I'm betting WinRAR/7Zip or whatever you use automatically associated itself with BIN files which gave them its icon.

    Thanks for confirming that. I can't seem to get any sonic game running I just get a black screen. I did get streets of rage working.

    If you feel an impulse to extract the bin files, you can rename them to SMD or GEN (Sega Genesis rom formats) and they'll still run fine on JenesisDS. I do it because bin files have other uses besides roms and it sometimes confuses me as to what files they are. [​IMG]
