I just acquired the Gamebuino... Unfortunately I lost all the the data from the SD Card. Anyway, I'll wait for other answers.

You lose all your Data by uploading when the console load ? >.<

You can check it by using the SD card to usb (look like an usb key) if you have nothing you can get it back from the website
-> https://gamebuino.com/fr/creations/update-and-install-gamebuino-meta-games

Re try this

- make sure the META is turned on

- try a different USB port on your computer

- go back to the game loader and upload from there

Press this button (in red) and Press A on Exit Game


You should hear you computer do a "Tududu" like when you  disconnect something with USB, than "Tadada" and be back at the menu.
Than start your arduino IDE and check if you have "Arduino/Genuino Zero (Native USB Port)"

If you still do not have it

- try using without a usb hub, if you use one

- in the game loader, hit the settings button and hit "enter bootloader"


You get it when you are on the Game Loader screen press the Menu button (in red ).


Than select"Enter Bootloader" and press A.

You should than got a screen who look like this



I am pretty sure this is working like you was able  to upload something during the loading

Simply upload when you are in the game Loader (the home menu with all your games) or on the Bootloader screen.

Hello Nux,

Thank you for your answer.

I did a mistake, my SD card is not empty, the screen is blank and I don't know what to do... :( When I turn it on, it's blank.

double-tap the reset button, that will force the bootloader to flash the `loader.bin` from the sd card

I think this can resolve your blank screen issue.


Put your Gamebuino On and when you are on the blank screen press the reset button 2 time with something like a paperclip.

This is the button bellow the reset text on the Gamebuino (take a look on your gamebuino where i have draw a red square).


When you look below the gamebuino this should look like this.

the reset button is bellow the red arrow

oh ! 

go to http://legacy.gamebuino.com/ you'll find many info on your GBClassic AND an archive (game compilation) with everything you'll need :)

Oh, for the gamebuino classic you have to hold down the C-button while turning the console on for some time and then wait like 30 seconds or so.

As for the console not appearing on your computer: some of the micro USB cables that come with it don't have the data lines and thus can only be used for charging

Thanks for the info Sorunome... But I format my SD card before trying your solution... I assume that I erased the bootloader? Is there any way to download it?

Just toss all these files onto your sd card (make sure it is FAT-16 formatted!) https://github.com/Rodot/Gamebuino-Games-Compilation

Thanks guys :)! I managed to get the games in my SD card. Can you tell me how to enter in the bootloader in order to be detected by my PC (Windows 10)?

The gamebuino classic doesn't have that, it has a separate chip for USB communication which should always be ready. Make sure you are using a USB cable that isn't charging-only
