Our Bios & Hardware structure is totally different from V64 & Z64. But the games
files (software ) is compatible. The file extension can be anything. The CD64 can load V64
and Z64 files alike. CD64 's cd format is ISO 9660 MODE 1, Level 1 , compliant Dos names (

The CD64 with 128Mbit can support almost every games available in the market. But you can
upgraded to 256Mbit for future release game. We use the most common RAM Module for the
computer ( EDO TYPE,72 pin SIMM 4Mx4 Ram Chip -60ns ). So the end-user can up-grade or
replace the Memory as for their convience. ( Please note that some Ram Module are not

When cd64 has any new BIOS released, and if you decide to have your cd64
upgraded, you can either down load the file from our web site and copy it to your CD-R in
your PC. If you don't have CD-Writer installed in the PC, we can send the upgrade diskette
to you with $5.00 plus shipping. You can upgrade by yourself, just insert the upgrade CD
to the cd64 and run the files. It will upgrade it for you automatically and it takes only
a couple of minutes. If you already have the Parallel Port Adaptor from us, you can upload
the latest bios from you PC through printer port.
you can save the records into CD64 as long as the game cartridge that you plugged in
has EEPROM built in.
However, we do recommend you always has this type cartridge plug in and always has memory
pad installed in your controller. When playing the game, the game save data is tempory
save onto the boot cartridge. After you finish to play the game. You can transfer the
saved data to the Joypad's memory card.
You do not need to buy those other expensive Ram card ( like DSP1, DP256 or DP4 ) . If
just need to use the ordinary memory card from Nintendo or third party.
You can only play the CD64 with the original N64 game cartridge to assure
compatibility. It's must have the battery save function and no Hardware protection. ( e.g.
Mario64 , Pilot Wings, Mario Kart64, )
