FYI, NES Roms Wouldn't Import


Recommended Posts

I felt that maybe this just needed mentioned for the chance of helping someone troubleshoot. The other day I mass imported my entire NES rom collection by going through Tools > Import Roms via selecting the entire folder. Out of some 80 or so roms maybe five couldn't get imported. The new error that I encoutered was "Could not import game from ROM file [file name here].zip: The remote server returned an error: (404) I had the option to still import with errors and I did however only the ones with that error failed still. I was able to work around the issue by individually adding each rom and found out that one reason was due because just one metadata photo that could not be downloaded (I believe this was for Super Mario 3). For this fix, I had to scroll through the thumbnail of pictures and find the one not being loaded and delete it. Not entirely sure why others could not get imported since I have had roms where the file name was not entirely correct but still got imported without loading metadata. Below were the games: Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers 1 and 2 (two different roms) Hudson's Adventure Island Super Mario Bros. + Duck Hunt Super Mario Bros. 3 Superman Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Tiny Toon Adventures Uncharted Waters
