Megatouch Maxx Emerald Dead
« on: April 25, 2017, 08:16:05 pm »
I have 3 different Maxx Emerald's that the hard drives and keys have died. Any suggestions on what I could do to fix these without having to buy new keys that are just as old as the one's that died? I have got the original install cd's for the Emerald.

Thanks

Maybe its the key. Woz the date on the key? The battery inside has a 10 year shelf life.

Check out this thread over at KLOV here: https://forums.arcade-museum.com/showthread.php?t=368513

Read through it. There woz a guy in that thread that uploaded a keyless sapphire hard drive image. The ftp is gone and the thread was eventually closed but i am sure if you PM him he might upload it somewhere for you.

Will take a look and give him a try. I also heard that one for a jade is out there somewhere too...
Much appreciated.
