Windows 10 had an update sometime back that broke imaging CF cards for me. I'm pretty sure someone else had that problem too. Weird, but true.

This is why I have a dedicated Windows XP PC :lol:
I'm on Windows 7, but it's nice to know I'm not going nuts :D

What are you using to flash the image?

99% sure you'll only have success with the CF IDE and not the card reader.
I've tried self image, BalenaEtcher and AOMEI to flash the image.

Re: [TUTO] Save or répair Deathsmiles 2 Arcade PC-PCB

That's not a CF to IDE, it's a card reader. I know :D That's how I'm connecting it to my PC to flash the OS/DATA image You need something like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Syba-SD-CF-IDE-Connects-3-5-Inch-Interface/dp/B000YUMLPI?SubscriptionId=AKIAILSHYYTFIVPWUY6Q&tag=duckduckgo-ffab-uk-21&linkCo...

Re: [TUTO] Save or répair Deathsmiles 2 Arcade PC-PCB

Diskpart will make multiple partitions even in current versions of Windows. This doesn't seem to work with CF cards. Have you had success with creating 2 active partitions on a CF card? Id be tempted to go USB to IDE and IDE to CF (CF is ATA, the latter is literally just providing an interface betw...

Re: [TUTO] Save or répair Deathsmiles 2 Arcade PC-PCB

UPDATE: So it looks like you can't create 2 partitions on a CF card in later versions of Windows using a card reader. The original CF card had 2 partitions: Partition 1 = OS Partition 2 = DATA If you try to put the image onto a CF card using a card reader, then the second (data) partition does not g...

You can use other ms9 inside an Egret 2. Doesn't have to be 29T.
