I am trying to flash my Arduino. I can install the CH341 drivers, but there is no ports in the device manager for Windows 10. I have tried showing hidden ports, and even installing legacy hardware. Nothing seems to work. Any ideas on how to get it to work?

I got another one of those unsupported gamesharks but got it flashed by using the piggy back method on the sanni cart reader.

Is the Arduino still untouched or did you already desolder the two components? Because once the components have been desoldered you can only flash it with the Cart Reader shield attached and turned on.
If you did not desolder the two components then you should flash it without the Cart Reader shield attached just to be sure.

That is interesting. I only ran into one of these and it turned out to just be deemed defective because of the slot being dirty.

This happened to me. For me the solution was to use a different USB cable. Make sure you are using a cable that does both power and data. If the cable only does power, the port won't show up.

 :o hey sanni because of the error when trying to write 4 megabyte rom it says it can't read the file from the sd card

sanni

Try renaming the file to something simple like rom.bin
You can also try another SD card or format the SD card with guiformat.exe: http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/guiformat.exe
Or you can try to enable slow mode, in line 75 of Cart_Reader.ino change "#define sdSpeed SPI_FULL_SPEED" to "#define sdSpeed SPI_HALF_SPEED".

There is some gamesharks that have a different set of chips that isnt supported.

I'm aware. I've only ended up with one of them is all I'm saying.

these micro sd were not very good. mainly class 10 tips on the burning floor. sanni says ai very complicated to change the oled screen to TFT? how many programming lines need

sanni

Not very hard, maybe 20-50 lines in Cart_Reader.ino, mainly the print functions beginning in line 713 and the questionBox_OLED function.

Read over the posts here and see only linux usage, not that I have anything against linux but I like not to use linux when I'm completely new to something.  I have the sketch up in the IDE and can run it fine with the debug but is there no way to get the file saved in windows? Could I use putty somehow?

Thank you! I tried it when it was still untouched, but perhaps I had a bad cable, as LHCGreg suggested. I have unsoldered the parts already, so I will wait to try again until after it is assembled.

I finally got my pickit3 and SOIC8 adapter. I am completely lost! I looked at:

I am still not sure how to wire it or how to orient anything. Has anyone successfully done this before? Are there any videos on how to do this specific process?
