Open Source Cartridge Reader

This project represents a community-driven effort to provide an easy to build and easy to modify cartridge dumper.
Its main purpose is to dump a video game's ROM and save file to an SD card without the need of a PC.

For any questions you can use the Discussions and/or Issues section here on Github or visit the accompanying thread in the Arduino Forum, where you can reach most of the devs directly.

Also be sure to check the guides in the Wiki too.

Happy making. 🔧🔨😊
