I bought an 1Mb Flash Cartridge and a Programmer. I have performed many tests and I have succesfully writen compilations of exes and 8K rom cartridges images. Also I have dump an 64K XEGS Cartridge (Flight Simulator II), that resulted fully functional in the emulator, but when I try to program this image with "Cartridge/Program/Maxflash 1Mbit Flash Cartridge" option, an error occurs with the message "Operation failed: Not an ATR image or correct size for binary image of this cartridge type".
If I try with the "Cartridge\Program\S/XEGS RAMCart (64kB Image)" option, succesfully writes the cartridge, but not load in the computer...
¿There is a way to load an original XE cartridge image in a 1Mb Flash Cart, to use it like an original one?

Thanks
Regards, Gabriel

PD: My english is poor, sorry

The XEGS bank switching model differs from the MaxFlash model and so a direct dump of one to the other won't work. Porting the game to work from a MaxFlash could prove a little tricky to do as well. It maybe better to try and use the disk images of the same game instead?

Thanks for your response. It's true that I can get the port of the cartridges. But I also like to have a blank cartridge, program a ROM and use it. Searching the internet I found this page: http://raster.infos.cz/atari/hw/ramcart/ramcart.htm
Is it "Maxflash Cartridge USB Programmer" compatible with this project?

Thanks for your help

Regards, Gabriel

No, it is not compatible with Raster's RAMcart.

Hello, thanks for answer me.
Is there any cartridge circuit compatible with this recorder, which let you record a dump of an original cartridge?

The S/XEGS ram cart emulates the XEGS format cartridges and you can program it with the Maxflash programmer. I don't believe it supports Maxflash format or any other bank switched format though.
