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 Glacial 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 turquoise shell, black anodized screws and a Black Ice-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.

    Awesome Hardware-with a little work

    Posted by Tristen on Sep 13th 2021

    I have an shvc-cpu-01 Snes. At first it had seemed to be an issue with this cart as i was getting graphical glitches whenever the system would load up. After some troubleshooting it turned out my old console did not have a cpu clock buffer, the clock was just running off transistors. After some deadbugging a proper buffer off the crystal the console started behaving itself and the cart worked like a dream!

    Best SNES flash cart right now

    Posted by Kevin Larsen on Aug 20th 2021

    This works, though it seems there's an incompatibility with my clone hardware. The Super Retro Trio flickers with special chip games from flash cart, but the original carts work perfectly. If you're not using original hardware you might want to get the cheaper version to save money, but I'm still happy to buy the best possible SNES flash cart on the market right now.

    Set up wasn't obvious but the internet bailed me out.

    Posted by Matthew H. on Jul 25th 2021

    I new to this type of hardware so set up wasn't obvious to me. I put the games on an SD card and it was asking for a menu file. I downloaded the menu color I liked and put it on my SD card (after creating a file directory to match the one it asked for). Finally I found an old Reddit post that helped me figure out the simple mistake I made. Download the firmware and put it on the SD. Then put your games on the root of the SD. Neat product and has worked great so far. I really hope it lasts.

    FX PAK Pro

    Posted by Robert M on May 18th 2021

    Absolutely the best flash cart for the SNES. Enhanced chip games, homebrew (Zelda randomizer!), and a good number of new 'enhanced audio' games (Link to the Past with CD quality audio is fantastic!).

    If you're seriously considering a flash cart for your SNES, this is the only real choice. Most of the games people care about on SNES had special graphical chips, and this is the only one that does them all. So if you want to play Star Fox, Mega Man X3, and many others, this is your best bet.

    FXPAK Pro

    Posted by Andrew on May 13th 2021

    Expensive but very much worth it. Super high quality and worked like a charm. Easy to load all the required software onto it and the custom menu I loaded looks really nice. Overall extremely satisfied. Worth the price.

    FXPak Pro

    Posted by Robert Hunter on Apr 25th 2021

    I got a refurbished SNES but all my cartridges are in a box somewhere at my parent's house. This flashcart is exactly what I needed. It lets me play the games I used to play as a kid on original hardware! Really easy to use too. The only negative was that it didn't recognize my 32 GB MicroSD card even though I formatted it multiple times to FAT32. I had to switch to a smaller size, but it's not a big deal because SNES files are really small. Great purchase! Now I want one for my N64 too

    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.
