  • Shelbel66 Jun 10, 2008

    We have nintendo 64 toy story 2 and a controller pack. When we shut off the game all the info is lost when it is turned back on again. I says there is an abnormality in the controller pack then we attempt a repair and it works. I am wondering if I am supposed to remove the controller pack before I shut the game off and would that correct the problem. When is are you supposed to remove them.

I assume you are talking about the controller pak that plugs into the controller. Any game that uses a controller pak should have a pre-game menu with an option to delete or erase memory files. Just follow the on screen instructions.

Not 100 percent sure but I believe if you hold down the start button on the controller when you turn it on, the memory card manager will show up.

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.

How do i take the jump pak out of the nintendo 64

First, make sure the console is unplugged (power wise). Pop open the memory expansion slot on the top of the console. If you have the jumper pack ejector tool, use it to pry the jumper pak up to a point where you can lift it out with your fingers. If you don't have this tool a flathead screw driver will work fine too. Make sure you place it or a memory expansion pak back in before you power it back up. The console won't run without one of those in there.

    Nintendo 64 controller pak doesnt save games.

    Well it sounds like that they are bad memory cards then. I had a problem with my memory cards for perfect dark saying that they are corrupted attempt to fix so I had cleaned out the memory cards and the part in the controller that they connect into and where find after they were cleaned out with qutips and rubbing alcohol. It could be the same issue that I had or they are just old or bad memory cards. The worst case could be the console or controllers could be having issues.

    How do I insert memory card into nintendo 64? bought used unit for grandson and was thinking of getting a memory card becuase it seems it supposed to have one I bought a used donkey kongN64 and now it says...

    The memory card plugs into the back of the controller.. i believe. No you do not need a memory card to play games, but you want one if you want to save your progress in games. Without a memory card to save progress, you will have to start a game over everytime you want to play it.

    I am sorry I don't know what the expansoin pack is.... maybe a memory card, or rumble pack.

    I want to delete all data from n64

    When you turn on the system with a game that uses the controller pak, hold start and you should get a memory card management screen. You can delete data from there.

    Transfer pack

    I believe he is talking about the memory card or the expansion pak.
    The Nintendo 64 has memory units that plug into the slot in the back of the controllers. This is used for saving game information. Here is a picture:
    There is also a memory unit upgrade called the Expansion Pak that some games took advantage of for slightly better graphics. See this listing at amazon by clicking HERE.
    Let me know if that helped.
    Take Care,

    Inserted Ram Expansion Nintendo 64

    I would just look at the bottom of the RAM and see if there isn't any dust, I get that problem with my NES and NES games only diffrence is it shows a pink screen instead of a blue screen. I clean the treads of the cartrages including the RAM with a very light damp cu tip. Hope that works out.
