Yeah I'll either figure it out or install linux (what is a good distro for dell laptops?). This pc I found at a garbage dump, the hard drive was failing, the battery shot, and it was a little beaten up from being discarded. I restored it with a ssd, and a new battery.
I think it came with windows 7, but there was no sticker on the back.
I downloaded the USB Windows 10 upgrade from microsoft, these were free upgrades some time ago. I had assumed Education postulating that it would activate for free, but I have no qualifications for those terms.
Back on topic:
ExFat has been working great with allocation unit size 8192b.
NTFS-3g may have been a problem in particular with dosbox because of the write syncs.
The device setup I was thinking would be like this on the raspberry pi
USB1: Usb image boot, raspbian? smaller.
Micro-SDslot: unformatted new microsd (the target of the image write)
USB2: Usb microsd adapter (the source of the image write)
rpi-clone; and I thought I made it sound confusing.
So does the wireless work on the game girl? It would be cool to write a script to easily disable and enable it to save power.
Is the hdmi port still accessible? and then you might be able to sync a wireless controller and play on a tv.
The RPI3b+ can get hotter than any of the other models, I wonder if installing a fan would be possible. Of course that would use more power, depending on the emulations you want to use, it would be easy to down_clock the cpu and benefit as well.
You need to copy the ROM folders contents to your PC or a USB stick, then transfer them over to the new image as you did initially. You might have to write your backup image back to the card in order to copy the ROMs.
I would say that with today's technology yes, though it would be near impossible to do so without connecting the game cartridge to the computer :). So unless you have some sort of GBA-2-USB adapter, I would say no.
@markyh444 There have been one or two occasions I thought I might be able to save a hard working developer/mod a couple of minutes, but I'm way too nervous to do it!! Believe me, plenty of play and learning to do yet;))
