Post subject:  Troubleshooting dumping Coleco (etc.) games with Maxflash?

Hi! New Maxflash owner here. I'm attempting to use it to dump Colecovision cartridges and am running into trouble. I do have the Colecovision cartridge adapter. Everything's facing the right way, I've cleaned the contacts, etc. When I dump a cartridge, it does create a binary, but one of two things happen:

1) The binary won't play at all in emulators, or

2) It loads with a screen like the attached file, and never gets beyond this.

Now, in the case of 2, the game is Brain Strainers, and you can see that what appears on the screen is indeed very close to "Brain Strainers By Carousel Software Inc."

So it's dumping something; it's just dumping corrupt or incomplete data.

Any thoughts on what I might try? Thank you!
