Putting the native32 games on an SD-card for the Xtrons Headrests

I used a 8GB Micro SD Card and formatted it to FAT32.

Go to the native32.com Web site. Click on the Game Lib tab and click on the Batch Download link.
This downloads AllGame070927.rar. Use 7-Zip (an Open Source compression tool) to expand this rar file and copy all the contents to the root of the SD card.

You then have to download the Flash UI (note this doesn't flash your ROM - this means flash as in 'snazzy'!). Click on the Home Tab and click on the Flash UI link. Again, using 7-zip, expand the compressed file and copy fhui.smf to the root of your SD card. This fhui provides a menu for the games. Without this they don't appear to work correctly!

Doing this enables you to play games without having to keep a CD in the unit. You can also put movies in the root too - just make sure they're the correct format.

  1. Hi Andrew. Thanks for the helpful post. I was wondering if you found any other games this headrest could play besides the ones on native32. Maybe another source for .smf games? We were hoping to install old 8 bit games like NES games. Thanks!

  2. This means that ultimately it will be the publisher who ends up losing money because when retailers adjust their prices to reflect the increase in cost for used games, the resale value of the game will drop and new games are less likely to be purchased.game tips and tricks by dementalism
