WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SD2SNES PRO?

The "SD2SNES Pro" was re-branded to "FXPAK Pro" due to a trademark conflict. The FXPAK Pro still is the same great product, just with a new name!


This is the Crimson version of the FXPAK Pro for All Regions of the Super Famicom and SNES (it will fit into Japanese, European & North American systems). This cartridge comes assembled in a transparent red shell, red anodized screws and a Crimson-style label.

Ever dream of having your whole library of SNES or SFC games in a single cartridge? The FXPAK Pro allows you to load your game back-ups (commonly known as ROMs) on a microSD card, put the microSD card into the FXPAK Pro, put the FXPAK Pro into a SNES or Super Famicom and have your list of games at your finger tips. Please read the FLASH CART DISCLAIMER below before purchasing.

    Superb Cartridge!

    Posted by James Nezat on Nov 24th 2021

    Easy to setup and use! Great compatibility! What more can you ask for? This is easily one of the best purchases you can make if you own a Super Nintendo or Super Famicom.

    Excellent flash cart for SNES/SFC

    Posted by Sam Dionne on Jul 19th 2021

    I have been using the FX Pak Pro for 1 year and it has continued to perform excellently with original SNES/SFC game roms (including special-chip games using Super-FX, SA-1, etc), and almost every patched translation / hack I have tried so far without issues. Playing MSU-1 hacks and hearing CD-quality music from an actual SNES is very interesting, and if you purchase I would recommend trying this at least once! The only compatibility issues I have noted are related to either rom files with bad headers won't boot, or roms/hacks that are incompatible with original hardware may crash. Also using a 3rd party SNES to SFC adapters can interfere with special-chip games (but this is not the fault of the cartridge). Overall, it is fairly expensive, but it is an excellent way to experience the full SNES/SFC library on original hardware.

    USB port defective and liable to break

    Posted by John on Jun 29th 2021

    I enjoyed using my SD2SNES Pro for a while now but unfortunately, the micro-USB port on the top recently snapped off the board and fell off into the case itself. I haven't even plugged or unplugged the USB cable more than a dozen times, just the mechanical stress of having the USB cable connected from the top was enough to break it. I had to open the unit up to retrieve the now loose port so the metal body of the loose port wouldn't short out any connections on the board and when I did I was rather disappointed to see that there had never really been much there in the first place to keep it attached to the board. The pitch of the connector is pretty fine, and it ripped a solder pad off with it, so unfortunately I don't think a repair is very feasible either. The slot cut in the case for the USB port also doesn't seem like it was aligned properly between the front and back halves? It's hard to say if that contributed to it breaking though.

    Absolutely wonderful

    Posted by Dan Bednarski on May 21st 2021

    The FXPAK PRO is amazing. My only regret is that I didn't get one sooner. Easy to use, and the USB connection is a sleeper wonderful addition for those who want . The MSU-1 support is great, being able to play these classics with CD quality sound on an actual SNES is something that is still hard to believe is real. 100% recommended to anyone considering a flash cart for SNES/SFC.

    Super dope

    Posted by Jon on May 13th 2021

    My favorite thing about this is how MSU-1 support breathes new life into my SNES console!

    Just get it

    Posted by Josh on Apr 13th 2021

    This thing is fantastic for playing those fan-translated games that were only released in Japan. I played through Tales of Phantasia with it, which the US didn't get. I'm looking forward to many more.

    Flawless

    Posted by Scott Comeau on Apr 11th 2021

    I did research before purchasing a FXPAK PRO and it was clear that this was the best option for the things I wanted to do. It exceeded all of my expectations. What a beautiful product. It looks great, it works great, and it’s fairly easy to use. I’m not a tech savvy person but I got working easily. As far as I’m concerned the FXPAK PRO is a must have for retro games. I can’t recommend it enough.
