Memory Card Support

12 Feb 2020, 00:14

Hi all,

So I've been having weird issues with my memory card. While I'm in a current gaming session, the card works just fine, saving each game I use it on. If I come back in another day, most of the saves are gone. I was thinking the battery has run dry, but it looks like it has been replaced already.
So two questions:

1. Am I doing something that is causing my memory card to be wiped out each day?
2. Is there any way to have built in memory card support on the NeoSD Pro?

Thanks for the help!

That really sounds like a bad memory card. It's an original SNK one?

I would really suggest the NeoSaveMasta memory card from: https://www.neogeofanclub.com/

I've used his card quite a bit with the NeoSD Pro and haven't experienced any issues.

Yes, it is an SNK Japanese Neo Geo memory card.

The Neo Save Masta is not in stock, I spoke with the maker of them and he told me he doesn't plan on making any more for quite some time.
Are there any plans to support save files on the NeoSD Pro? I've noticed the cart is able to save Neo Geo CD games, is it possible/planned for save backups on MVS and AES games?

I have the memory card I’ve linked below, it works great in my AES and haven’t ever noticed any issues. It might be worth you having a look at it.

https://stoneagegamer.com Also has cards if your looking for a local US based. I'm always impressed on how fast they ship products and how soon it gets to me here in Seattle.

Good catch. They’re the exact same card too.

I will say my only gripe is the insanely bright blue LED on the front of the card indicating which bank is selected. I replaced the blue on mine with a red LED. Some electrical tape could also cover it if you lack soldering skills.

Thanks for the info, I bought a lot of stuff on SaG over the years, but usually prefer to buy directly from the manufacturer. In this case, looks like it will actually be cheaper buying from SaG, plus I have some credit with them which I will use.

Is the JPO or the NeoSaveMasta a better product for those who own both?

Not sure how much this may or may not help you decide, but here’s a close up photo of front and rear of my card. Excuse finger print smudges :)

^Thanks for the pic. I'll probably pick one up after I have some money, kinda broke right now, lol.

Still interested to hear if the NeoSD Pro will ever be capable of saving to the SD card- if so it could save me $55 from buying that memory card.

So I went on Stone Age Gamer and purchased the JGo memory card.

However, when I insert it into my console, it does not detect any card is inserted, even though the LED light is on and everything! My official card is recognized just fine. Is there something else I'm supposed to do to "activate" this card, or did I just get a dud?
