    Definitely sounds like the cf card is toast. I'm unfamiliar with these systems, all the ones I might build use a proper HDD but you'd need a new CF card and then at the very least the roms to match the version of Mame it's using. First question to ask is does it use a HDD as well?

    Wasting your time trying to resurrect this POS.

    It will likely be far cheaper and certainly faster to buy a new multiboard - $60~199 will do it and you are up and running again.

    One link here but there are dozens more:

    I have never seen a CF style system before.....I was hoping to extract the data off the card, but alas as I said it is not working in my flash reader. I am very familiar with other boards etc, was hoping to just get this working as is......without having to spend any extra $$'s on it.....

    That mobo is definitely way past it's time, chuck a P4 or later PC in it with a 20+ gig HD and run Mame with Mala frontend if you must have the ability to add games.
    You could also run an Raspberry Pi but I know nothing about setting those up.
    Otherwise just put a 60in1 or other multi board as previously mentioned.

    I know it would be easy to put in a PI or something else, but was wanting to keep it original. Does anyone have any files etc that could help me recreate this?? In the DOS DIR I can see GLAUNCH......which has a MAME folder in it. A CRYSTAL folder which has a mix amp sound card set up + a few auto exe files etc. Was hoping to get this one back up as is, it is a cute little unit

    I'd suggest if you want to keet it 'original' then do some research and take the time to learn how to ser it up/fix it yourself.
    You'll be hard pressed to find someone who has the exact files you need, it will more so be a case of you having to trawl the internet for hours finding the right info and files to get it back up and running.
    Glaunch is a front end called Game Launcher which was the first front end I used back in 2005.
    Good luck.

    My appologies to everyone if I came across demanding anything. I had spent some time already trawling to get it working again. It is old but was hoping to keep it all the same. I will redo it and make it better, was hoping that someone may have had some knowledge as to what was being used.
    Once again if I offended I am very sorry. Cheers
