HARDWARE/SYSTEMS DISCUSSION / Everdrive MD Firmware
« on: September 23, 2012, 08:43:48 PM »
Can anyone on here update the Firmware on a Everdrive MD ???

Mine is version 4 but the current is v12 which I really want as it means you can use the cart to boot any Sega CD Bios :)

This is from the manual:

Q: How do I update the firmware myself?
A: It is not suggested the user updates the firmware. Doing so could damage the
user's EverDrive-MD and may void any warranty. Here is how the user can
update the firmware:
1.  Purchase an "Altera USB Blaster" and a JTAG connector.
2.  Install the "Altera Quartus II Web Edition" software.
3.  Connect Altera USB Blaster and install driver from
"C:\altera\10.0sp1\quartus\drivers\usb-blaster\".
4.  Run Altera Quartus II Web Edition software.
5.  Open "Tools -> Programmer".
6.  Press "Hardware Setup" button and select "USB Blaster".
7.  Press "Add File" button and select the firmware (*.pof) file.
8.  Put bare board in Genesis/Mega-drive console.
9.  Connect JTAG to board and hold at angle to make a good connections.
10. Switch Genesis/Mega-drive power on.
11. Press "Start" in Quartus programmer tool.


Or would it just be easier to get my Pal MD2 & MCD2 region moded ???

As titles says really - you can use an Everdrive Cart on Mega Drive to unlock all CD regions - like the very expensive Datel CDX cart  ;D

Not Sure if this works...not had chance to try it yet...but I will  :D

HARDWARE/SYSTEMS DISCUSSION / Re: 3.5" fdd on Spectrum +3
« on: September 13, 2012, 07:27:22 PM »
Its exactly the same method as the CPC6128. Works great. Had my +3 at Spectrum 30 running with the HXC Emulator. No issues at all.

You can also do the A:/B: jumper swap too.

Would the same one work on CPC6128 & Spectrum +3...using different formatted disks of course  ???

i remeber reading somewhere that you should not power the Pi from a usb socket on PC/laptop....

I read that on the sheet that came in the box.

I used a Sony Ericsson charger from my LiveView :)

Think it needs 700+ 1000ma recommended I think I read!!
