General Discussion / Re: How to backup ROMs from N64 cartridges
« on: March 03, 2015, 12:06:34 AM »
I have gotten success, was able to rom dump Super Mario 64 and Mario Kart 64 (jp) with no hang ups. The pc I ended with is a Dell dimension 2400, pentium 4, 512mb ram, 80gb hdd, Windows 98se, integrated graphics and LPT port. Gameshark version 3.2 works great, about 20 minutes per game the two games I tried. Anyone else looking to rom dump there n64 collection should get an old windows 98 system as Paul has suggested. Until he makes advancement in the other programs it was the best solution for me,  thanks again for the information!  ;D

Yeah, after a few months of no response I gave up. Then out of curiosity I checked the website and read where you made progress but only with an old pc. I got an old dell pc with the db25 connector on the motherboard (got lucky the boss at work doesn't throw away business stuff). It has xp so had to get a windows 98 disk off ebay but once I get that installed I'll have to report back with any progress.

Sorry to be a few months late, but this is the only site that has recent information on ripping N64 roms. I bought a printer port pci card and cable to hookup my gameshark 3.2 to try and rip my games. The pci card comes up as LPT1 in device manager, but every time I try to open or dump a N64 rom, it says communication has timed out after a few seconds. I am running windows 7 with gscc in windows 95 or windows 98 compatibility mode, getting the same error. Any other compatibility mode and the program freezes. I guess my question is, what version of windows do you need to use the program, and will a pci printer port work. Also have a db25 to usb cable that has the same issue of timing out.
