I've had the same - I DL a rom that doesn't show up on the list, I found that if I renamed the rom it would then show up on the list... but still doesn't run.
It would REALLY BE NICE if there was a large zip of ROMS that work available somewhere. It sure would save us a lot of work. Just think... everyone of us has to fine, download, install and try each rom, then delete or keep.
It's a lot of work and a major time waster. If someone had a huge zip of all roms that work it would be the best feature yet!
Even the rom sites are setup poorly - these roms are very small - often 50-80k. Yet they force us to dl them one by one... with menus and clicks between downloads. I have a cable modem and could suck the entire library off in a zip in a few seconds. So why isn't this offered anywhere?
