    Hardware Involved:
    1. Max Media Player
    1. Max Media Dock
    1. 2Gb Dan Elec CF Card (works)
    DSlite (Black)

    Software:
    DSOrganize Version 3.1129
    Maximum Overload Version 1.58
    Maximum Overoad Version 1.61B1
    Generic ROM (Not fragged, and working)

    Here is my problem. I originally installed the 1.6 version of MO and was using it with a ROM of Jump Ultimate Stars. (Note I was booting through DSOrg)
    After adding a second ROM to the device, I erased the MOEV!L.DAT & MODEV!L.LST files to reset the ROMlist.
    Upon loading MO again it scanned all my .nds files (such as VGHero, A touch of war & the like)
    It encountered an error on most of my files that was not present before, "Error - No Drive" (This displayed over the icon for DSO & all other apps, freezing the system)

    So, I installed MO 1.58 and ran it, it located & ran my other ROMs fine after I
    1. Ran MO 1.58 once to "Prepare SAVE file / SAVE file done"
    2. Deleted the ~NDS.TMP file it generated.
    3. Reran MO 1.58 where it would "Finding save space" then start my file.
    To run a rom again I had to repeat these steps, which removed my save files.

    My question is, what did I do wrong to MO 1.61B?
    What am I doing wrong with MO 1.58?
    Why do I own this crap flashcart?
    And, can it be fixed?

    This is the only problem my MMD has, it runs homebrew, streams internet radio & works fine otherwise. (Thanks to DSorg)

    Thank you,
    Ace

    nice to see somebody else is still using the old MaxMediaDock =)...hmm, the only thing i could think of is to back yer files up and format your CF card, then try again.
    ive got an MMD, but not for rom launching, i use it as a dedicated slot-2 mp3 player (through dso, cuz moonshell corrupts too easily on it).
    I really dont use modev!ls MO except for dumping an nds game on occasion =P
    Id suggest getting a slot-1 along w/yer mmd. Modev!l hasnt updated his firmware since March (but ive got my fingers crossed he hasent abandoned it).
    you can make a dump of the passme card and load mmd as rom from a slot-1 card (ive done this with r4, ak, and dstwo.)

    I got the MMD for a few dollars at a Circut City closeout, and I plan to just play it till it dies. Thanks for the advice, next time I'm at the PC lab I'll try that.

    RESOVLED
    -------
    Following the advice above I...
    1. Copied all my files to the PC
    2. Formatted the card.
    3. Loaded only MO 1.61B and /Games
    4. Ran MO
    5. Re-coppied all other files to my card.
    And it works, many thanks!
