Something like 'Format is incorrect or not compatible with argument'.
I never met this error. Maybe a forbidden char in your filename ?

Suggestion:

1. Put a few rom files in a plain folder in the root of your drive, using english characters only (i.e. C:\RC)
2. Make sure you have full permissions in that folder
3. "inject" each .zip rom file with a "test_readme.txt" file (which will be marked as "useless" by RC)
4. add that folder to RC
5. Try to fix each "injected" rom to see what happens.

Hello Wanderer
Thanks for the tip, but unfortunelly it doesnt works, seems RC can´t find a way to link those roms list with the files on folder it self.
Any other clue ?
My objective is taking out the clone roms from the folder leave just the bios and roms uniques
If i had a clone list will do by hand a .bat file to delete them from the folder, but rc just give me a havelist.txt

Thanks
Marcos

:?:

With the datafile you are using, remove your original folder and just add the new one (C:\RC). Just copy in it some of the zips of the original folder and add a test file in some of them.
