- Hello There -

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    My controller works well but, if I put a memory card, it stops working.

    The only thing I can think of it being an easy fix for, is if you're just not putting it in at the right time. Insert the memory card into the controller while the system is off, then open the disc tray. NOW turn on the system. Hopefully this method works for you, if not, it may be a problem with the hardware. Good luck.

    Looks like your Dreamcast can't read the game properly either due to damaged disc or the dreamcast GD rom is not working properly. try recalibrating the GD rom using this guide:

    I have a sega dreamcast but i can't change the date. what can i do. do i need f1 fuse.

    At first mine would do the same thing, so I thought. What you should try doing is go to "settings" and change the date, then go down on the list and change the memory card date settings. If that doesn't work then I'm really sorry I wasted your time.
