If you asking if you can delete information off of a N64 Expansion Pak, the answer for that is no. The Expansion pack is literally ROM (read only memory) data, and is like an expansion pack for WOW, or Microsoft Flight Simulator, you can install the expansion, but it's not something you can pick and choose what you install, its either all or none.

Now you CAN delete information off of the N64 Memory Pak, which is the memory card that gets inserted into the controller. Here is a link that will tell you how to do this step by step.

What does an expansion pack for the n64 do? what is its purpose? and are they interchangeable?

I will refer you to a page on Wikipedia that explains it -- but the simple explanation is that the Nintendo 64 Expansion Pack increases the RAM on the N64 from 4MB to 8MB. There were a few games with improved graphics and game play that REQUIRED the expansion pack.

Yes you can remove the Expansion Pak from one N64 and put it into another. However, your N64 will NOT work without either the Expansion Pak or the Jumper Pak in that slot. The original memory card that came in there was called the Jumper Pak which was 4MB. The Expansion Pak was 8MB.

If your Nintendo 64 console operates without error when the jumper pak is installed, but fails to function when the expansion pak is installed, by process of elimination this most likely means that the expansion pak you purchased is defective.

However, prior to purchasing another expansion pak (or attempting to exchange/get refunded for it), make sure the contact points on both the pak and the console slot are free of any dust, dirt, or other contaminants. Use a lint-free, dry cloth to do this. Water and/or cleaning products can further damage the system.

If, after cleaning the contacts, it still fails to function, seek an exchange or refund.

Did you buy a bootleg or OEM expansion pack? Use a butter knife to pop it out, the system will play normal when you put the original back in or get a OEM expansion pack.

N64 and expansion pak whoas!

If your husband plugged it in without turning it off, the jumper pak, or the control deck itself is more than likely fried. Check and see if the control deck will work with the memory pak, instead of the jumper pak inside it. If not, the control deck is fried, and you'll need to buy another N64.

N64 quit working after adding the RAM expansion! Help!

The ram expansion was probably it. I think he should just buy a new one and change the cases.

Nintendo 64 expansion pak

Barb3: The Jumper Pack (JP) is a bypass for the expansion cartridge. You were supposed to turn off the equipment remove the JP and then use the expansion cartridge. Your N64 Ram it's probably gone for good. Is either replace the RAM, which is hard to find or replace the N64. Sorry for that.... SithPitt
