Re: EPROM Questions

You might as well experiment with how strong the devices are by hitting them with a hammer. I'm not saying this to rain on your parade, I'm trying to save you from wasting time and money on something that just will not work.

I just wanted to know what are the usual problems with game boys. This is the description that the seller gave: "A few of the Gam...
