I can help you.. what exactly do you want to know?
Just copy the Files with working Extensions like:
http://dingoowiki.com/index.php?title=Gemei_a330

Also update to Firmware v1.1
you can find the file here:

1. http://a330home.5d6d.com/thread-22-1-1.html
updated .sim's. contain the 6 of them (CPS1.SIM, CPS2.SIM, gba.sim, md.SIM, mvs.sim, NES.SIM), but only 3 are useful, the other ones stay at v1.0 (same md5's).
the updated ones (v1.1) are gba, nes (which was actually already released since a very few days), and neo geo / mvs.

i still have to check more for improvements, so far i can just say that gba and mvs sims didn't speed-up!! :/ haven't tried nes v1.1 yet.

(i upped that myself since it's not that simple to grab the many files the chinese bbs links, plus they are made for haozip, the asian winrar-like)

2. http://a330home.5d6d.com/thread-21-1-1.html
fw v1.1! beta? maybe not, well who knows yet..anyways it works fine, *but* "improvements" are soooo minor =/

>> GA330-V1.1.zip (21.45MB) (71.8 once unpacked) :: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=4PEGSGQJ

customized v1.1 "gals edition" @ http://a330home.5d6d.com/thread-45-1-1.html

And here a quote of the SFC EMU:
Quote
Well, after so many time, they has released a beta version of the SNES emulator for the Gemei A330. I did a small test with it and it runs fine, despite of some bugs. To run the emulator is required to have the version 1.1 of the firmware.

To see more informations about it, see here:
http://www.dingoobr.com/?p=3852

Link for download:
http://www.mediafire.com/?yo4m7oqg4ruvtq9

Just copy the files on the SD.. make some folders like
CPS1 for Capcom System 1
CPS2
MVS for neogeo
GBA for Gameboy Advance
NES for NES
SFC for Super Nintendo
MD for Megadrive genesis
this is the way i did it

Then open up the games Via INTERNET GAMES or Single PLAYER GAMES (just for GBA)

Have you installed the SFC SIM to the root directory where to other SIMS are of the gemei drive ? Because it is not included in the 1.1 you have to copy it manually.

Have you converted your Neo Geo Roms to MVS format with the converter ?

What Format are your other Games ?

Maybe your Roms are in a wrong format or bad.. i had many bad roms and had to search for a place with valid ones.

ROM Filetypes

Unlike most emulation programs you would run on your computer or phone, most of Gemei A330's native emulators wont read a zipped ROM file. When transferring ROMs from your computer to your Gemei A330, you will first need to unzip some of them. You can do this with any number of unzipping software. There are a few free programs available online such as 7zip [1] or jzip [2]. Additionally, NeoGeo and CPS2 roms will need to be reformatted (links next to each). In this section we will list what file extensions each emulator will use, acceptable formats and conversion tutorials.
[edit] Native

    * Famicom (NES).nes (unzipped)
    * Megadrive (Genesis) .SMD (unzipped)
    * GBA .GBA (unzipped)
    * NeoGeo .MVS (Converted) http://www.dingoo-digital.com/downloads/applications/mvs-converter-13-modified-english-version
    * CPS1 .zip (zipped)
    * CPS2 .CP2 (Converted) http://www.dingoo-digital.com/articles/tutorials/how-get-cps2-roms-work-dingoo
