How do I wire up a external power supply? (where do i connect the power on the swc board)

Thanks for the reply, I have followed you instuctions and still no cigar, I think it must be a power problem.

The cable is fine tested all the connections

I am now sending a swc ripped rom

still does not work though, do i have to select anything on the swc/snes options?

The disk drive works fine.
