Arduino as FLASH programmer for homemade Sega Genesis Game carts?

Hi guys,

this is my first post to the community and I'm not sure if this is the right section and I did some research on my subject but didn't come up with much useful.

I still have my old Sega Genesis and recently I have looked into possibilities to create my own cartridges. There are quite a few tutorials on how to repurpose old game carts and install swappable EPROMs or FLASH memory onto it. But all of them make use of Willem-like programmers. I have never used one of those and I'm generally inexpierenced in flashing chips other than the Arduino with its software. But couldn't the Arduino also be used to upload game roms onto a chip like say an AM29040 Flash memory chip? And how would I go about it?

Yes it can.

Thanks CrossRoads! That’s a great point to start! :smiley:
