> I don't know anything about the "right way" to do it but if your system will play 32Mb games you could just convert your 24Mb ROMs to 32Mb ROMs and it should work. Do this by copying the last 8Mb of data (watch for header alignment) to fill to 32Mb and then adjust the size parameter in the header to show 32Mb.

sounds a little complex. do you have a program that would make this task easier?? the file is really 20 mb i f'ed up but still same problem
i tried segatool to split the rom but when it splits the rom it changes it fom my mgd2 to a smd file again and no other program will change split roms backto the mgd2 format cus its split???
