    When loading a ROM to NOR, when it reaches near 256, it starts loading again but by 1 mb at a time.
    What is it loading during that part?

    The first slightly faster cycle is typically the erase cycle and the second is the actual write.

    Ah.
    Man is it really slow, but I do like that once it's loaded, it's always there until you write again, so it has an downside and upside I suppose.

    Maybe I should start splitting my Emulator files into 16MB.
