So, I have a near-complete (if not complete) NES Romset, and I know every Rom works, as I used to play them all the time with Nestopia on my various macs (currently they are all at 1.4.1) yet, if I try to use them with ANYTHING else (most importantly Nestopia on my new Netbook, which is my main computer), I get an "Invalid File" error. Does anybody have any sort of idea of what is causing this, and how I may fix it?

I had them compressed in a .Zip archive to move them, but have the original files on my Mac, still untouched, and those also refuse to work.

What dat file are you using to verify your ROMs? And since you have had this problem, have your rescanned?

they could be headerless roms, and in this case they cannot be used in any emu...

I think GoodNES can add back the proper headers (for sure it can fix it), but I never tried it on headerless files
