    I purchased a DragonDrive flash cart a while ago and I saw that it could be flashed using a krikzz Flashkit MD programmer. As I already owned the Flaskkit, I didn't read the note on your site that you can't use the krikzz software to flash your DragonDrive cartridges.

    I see your software is only currently available for Linux. I have never used Linux, so is there any possibility you can port the code to Windows? Unfortunately I'm not enough of a programmer to do this myself, but I'm sure there would be other people interested in being able to flash your DragonDrive carts from Windows.

    Thanks and I hope you can help me.

    Well, while I can't port it to Windows, I could create an image of a bootable Linux with the software preinstalled, so you can put it on an SD Card / USB Stick and boot it with a PC. Would that help?

    Thanks for the reply. With the help of a friend I compiled the code using Cygwin. I can use the software through Cygwin without any problem, so I'm all set now!

    One question, though - it seemed to be fairly slow to flash the file - perhaps a couple of minutes for 1.7 Mb - is that normal?

    That is great news, thanks for the info!
    Would it be possible that you can provide me with the file?
    I'd officially offer a Windows version then as well :)

    About the slowness:
    I just tested this (on Linux):
    It's 48 seconds for me for a 2MB file and 1:37min for a 4MB file.

    Did you mean MB or Mb? Because 1.7MB would be 0.21MB, and that is being flashed in 10 seconds here.
