UHATEIT, after experimenting with the software, I cannot find a way to transfer save data from the Flashboy. The software only seems to be able to flash to the unit. It auto erases anything already on the unit.

Also, send Richard an email asking for one if you haven't already. You can find it towards the beginning pages of this long thread.

Nevermind I figured it out. Hold CTRL while running to bring up the options menu. That allows you to change padding size. default value is 21 which corresponds to 2 MB. the value 24 spits out a 16 MB file

I know this forum is really old, but I had the same problem. Had the padder in a different folder and was dragging the rom file into the command prompt window like an idiot. Put the padder in the same folder and that didn't help.

What you need to do is do not open the padder. Drag the rom file onto the PAD_VB.exe file icon, then that will pad the file.

But, I thought the roms had to be padded to 16 MB to go on the FlashBoy? Mine only come out at 2 MB...

How exactly does this padding program work? I drag a rom .vb file onto the command prompt window, and all it does is close the program. Nothing else happens after that...

I am trying to pad a Jack Bros rom, which is 1 MB

I should be receiving mine in the mail this week. very excited!

One question: I downloaded the software and I understand how the flashing works. However, can it work in reverse? For instance, if I flash Wario Land and play the game for a few hours and get a good save file, could I transfer that back to the computer, flash a new game, then sometime in the future flash back Wario Land with my save file?

Dang, I would love some multiplayer action! Especially for Hyper Fighting. Unfortunately, I am the only person I know who owns a Virtual Boy.

Also, just paid for a nice shiny FlashBoy+ and am extremely excited for it!!
