Problem with moving roms to external SD on Galaxy S2

Postby sawrip » Tue Jun 28, 2011 2:11 pm

Hi everyone - hope someone can help me with this problem as I have wasted over two days trying to solve it - here it is:

I have Samsung Galaxy S2 all games I download using Rom fetcher and they all work fully on the internal SD card

I recently brought a new 32gb SD card off ebay for £20 and transferred the roms over to it using my phone (not pc)

Now only two roms load (wild 9 and crash 3) If I download a game using rom fetcher onto my internal phone it works but if I transfer it onto my sd card using my phone it does not.

All the games on the external load a Sony yellow diamond screen then the Sony logo appears in dark navy and thats as far as it goes before it crashes

I am at a bit of a loss really but noticed it seems quite a popular phone for running fpse so its something I am doing - I am wondering if it could be the external sd needs formatting or I need to use my pc not my phone to transfer files

If you transfer a working rom for my phone to external sd and then back again it wont then play on either it seems to damage the rom file permanently


Any ideas would be a massive help regards

Tom

@sawrip

I also bought a 32gb sdcard off eBay.
your problem is exactly the same as mine.
Thay fake SD cards
only holds up to like 2gb
I filled the entire sdcard up but only the first 3
games I put on there worked.
The sdcard showed all the rom data
but any games after the 3 working ones just
jump straight to the diamond psx boot screen.
Get a refund like I did
it took me 10 days after thay had the card back.
through PayPal.

Then I bought a proper priced sdcard £57 32gb and it works perfectly
Galaxy S7
