Thank you.
I think you misunderstand the difference between the 2 versions of MameCE3. MegaMameCE3 does not include any ROMS.

Mame supports over 2000 Games. MameCE3 only has a few hundred of those 2000+ games enabled so that they can be played. MegaMameCE3 has over 1000 of those 2000+ games enabled. Keep in mind that a game that is enabled may still not be playable due to incompatability or inconsistencies on the PocketPC.
The bad news is you still need to hunt for those ROMS. the good news is that if you already have those ROMS for MAME or MAME32 version .36 final you can copy them to your PocketPC.

FYI, MameCE3 works on both my 3630 and my 3670 with any versions of the iPaq software.

Hope that helps.
