Hello,
After many updates, I finally ran the scanner in ClrMamePro v364c for the
first time on my romsets (v.96), following the tutorial at
http://www.mameworld.net/easyemu/ and have a question about the scan
results, I am hoping you smart people may be able to tell me what it means
:0

First off, I ran a "scan" to check (without fixing them), and then a
"fastscan" to fix the "case", "unneeded" and "name" files only.. Here is the
result after that fastscan. My main question is what to do about the 209 (or
210?) 'nodump' ROM's and 256 'baddump' ROM's in my set. I'm guessing I
ultimately need to reload those roms, (unless they are still wip?) and
wonder the most efficient way to do that.. Anyway, thanks in advance for
your ideas!!..Chris:

The ones you are missing are WIPs. You have everything you need. If you're
still not sure then save of the 'Miss List' from the scanner screen. It'll
say you're missing 0 of xxxx known sets.

I've kept upto date with my roms for a few versions now. I don't have any of
the CHDs due to drive space, and my scan of 0.97 reads like this;

Nodump means that no dump of this rom exists (really :p ). They are
listed in the driver for reference until someone get a board to dump
them (it could also be an undumpable mcu). Baddump means quite the same
thing, they are listed in the driver until someone can get a hand on the
board and correctly redump the rom.

That's been discussed in here quite a few times, the answer seems to be
wait and see what numbering system they use :) 

Going back to your original post, you can update your roms to have
everything you are missing. I did the following myself last night and I now
have a clean scan with ClrMamepro even though I had a full set before.

Go hear www.pleasuredome.org.uk/mameftpgroup/index.php?full
and read the directions to make your current roms ready before joining the
torrent. Then you can download the torrent for .97 and only download what
you are missing.

You need to zip your roms using torrentzip so you don't waste your time
downloading what you don't need. If you've never done it then it will take
some time. I think it was about 4 hours on mine using a 2.8Ghz with 1GB
ram, but when it's done you don't need to do it over again the next time
you update. Unless you get your roms from another source other than the
torrent.
