.smd - Sega Genesis ROM
The SMD data files are related to Kega. SMD file is a Sega Genesis ROM (SUPER MAGICDRIVE) Image. The SMD format is a Genesis ROM format which must be decoded to be manipulated as normal Genesis cartridge data. SMD files consist of a series of 16KB blocks of data with their odd bytes at the beginning, and even bytes at the end. The Kega seems to be no longer supported.
Naturally, other applications may also use the .smd file extension. Even harmful programs can create .smd files. Be especially cautious with .smd files coming from an unknown source!
Can't open a .smd file?
When you double-click a file to open it, Windows examines the filename extension. If Windows recognizes the filename extension, it opens the file in the program that is associated with that filename extension. When Windows does not recognize a filename extension, you receive the following message:
Windows can't open this file:
To open this file, Windows needs to know what program you want to use to open it. Windows can go online to look it up automatically, or you can manually select one from a list of programs that are installed on your computer.
To avoid this error, you need to set the file association correctly.
- Open Control Panel > Control Panel Home > Default Programs > Set Associations.
- Select a file type in the list and click Change Program.
