> > > > Please Help! I got a gameboy pc-linker from Lik-Sang and it doesn't work. At the screen where its supposed to upload the roms, it hangs and just says waiting. I've tried everything and I dont know what else to do. Please help me, I've looked into everything, is there some software or documentation that I need? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

> Yes, then it could be your computer. Go to your Control Panel -> System -> Device Manager -> Ports (COM & LPT) -> ECP Printer Port (LPT1) And click on properties. If the printer port isn't ECP, that might be the problem. Anyway, if it is ECP, go to the Resources tab, which'll give you a memory range. The current parallel port that you are using (LPT1,2,3, whatever) should be the same one as is set in the PC-Linker program. My input/output range is 0378-037A, so I would set that in the PC-Linker program as well (LPT1).

> Also, what speed is your PC? Mine is a 266, so a Delay setting o

Its still not working, but I did notice something you said that might help. My setting is on 0378-037F instead of 037A. Do you know if theres anyway to change that or what can be done to make it so it works? Sorry to bother you like this but I really do appreciate all your help
