Here a brief intro on how to use MasterBurner for programming (most) SmartCards, like GoldCards, FunCards, GreenCards, Jupitercards, etc.

In origin this applicationwas created for the MasterCRD. However, this application also works with SC-Master Phoenix, MasterA, VX-Multi, VP-20, and Multiprog-XL. Download it from the Download-page.

Take a look at the SmartCard page for details on SmartCard.

Note: Read the disclaimer! Though this programmer can be very usefull for making your own smartcard protection of for example you PC or other objects, it also can be used to created illegal smartcards or edit existing smartcards which might be ILLEGAL!

Programming Smartcards

Proper Configuration of the software

Before you start, make sure the settings are done properly.

Click the menu "Options" and click the option "Setup"

MasterBurner - Configuring your programmer
MasterBurner - Configuring your programmer

In the configuration screen;

MasterBurner - Configuration screen
MasterBurner - Configuration screen

On the left in the "RS232" section, select the proper COM-port.

Next, in the "Programmer" section, select the MasterCRD Programmer you are using.

If you do not have a MasterCRD programmer, then:

Users of the SC-Master Phoenix should select the MasterCRD-2. You will need to have at least firmware version 1.05 in your programmer.

Users of the MasterA, VX-Multi, VP-20 or Multiprog-XL need to select the MasterCRD LC.
Configuring your programmer as a MasterCRD LC will cause the application to popup a window asking you to switch mode (the mode numbers, at least for the MasterA, match the mode mentioned) - so when asked to switched to a mode, do so.

Finally click "Save" and you'll return to the mainscreen.

Programming a SmartCard

MasterBurner is a very simple application to use (compared to most others) and can deal with most SmartCards.

Programming a GoldCard

From the menu "Option" - "Device" - "PIC" select "Goldwafer".

MasterBurner - Select the proper card
MasterBurner - Select the proper card

NOTE: Don't forget to check the option "EEPROM-Data" as indicated with the red arrow!

You'll notice that the 3rd and 4th icon are greyed now! That's correct since we only need to specify the PIC (Icon 1) and the EEPROM (Icon 3).

MasterBurner - Select PIC and EEPROM files for your GoldCard
MasterBurner - Select PIC and EEPROM files for your GoldCard

Click Icon 1 (MasterBurner - Open GoldCard PIC) to open the PIC file. Click icon 3 (MasterBurner - Open GoldCard EEPROM) to select the EEPROM file.

Once again: Make sure the "EEPROM Data" is checked. Normally this should be checked by now.
Also make sure these are checked/set too:

  • Oscillator: RC
  • WDT checked
  • PWRTE NOT checked
  • CP NOT checked

Optionally you can erase the card before you start programming. Click the "Erase" icon (MasterBurner - Erase GoldCard).

After erasing the card (or if you skipped that one), it's time to program the SmartCard. Click the "Write" icon (MasterBurner - Write GoldCard).

In the bottom line you will now see the writing progress.

Note: When using a programmer like the MasterA, you will also be prompted to change mode if needed.

Once the programming is done, Masterburner will identify this in this statusbar.

Programming a FunCard

From the menu "Option" - "Device" - "AVR" select "FunCard [AT90S8515 + 24C64]" which is a regular FunCard - select a different FunCard if your card has more memory.

MasterBurner - Select the proper card
MasterBurner - Select the proper card

NOTE: Don't forget to check the option "EEPROM-Data" as indicated with the red arrow!

We now need to specify the PIC (Icon 1), Internal EEPROM (Icon 2) and the external EEPROM (Icon 3).

MasterBurner - Select PIC and EEPROM files for your FunCard
MasterBurner - Select PIC and EEPROM files for your FunCard

Click Icon 1 (MasterBurner - Open FunCard PIC) to open the PIC file, Click Icon 2 (MasterBurner - Select INTERNAL EEPROM) for opening the internal EEPROM (not always used!) and finally click icon 3 (MasterBurner - Open EXTERNAL EEPROM) to select the External EEPROM file.

Once again: Make sure the "EEPROM Data" is checked. Normally this should be checked by now.

Optionally you can erase the card before you start programming. Click the "Erase" icon (MasterBurner - Eras GoldCard).

After erasing the card (or if you skipped that one), it's time to program the SmartCard. Click the "Write" icon (MasterBurner - Write GoldCard).

In the bottom line you will now see the writing progress.

Note: When using a programmer like the MasterA, you will also be prompted to change mode if needed.

Once the programming is done, Masterburner will identify this in this statusbar.

Duplicating SmartCards

MasterBurner also has the capability to duplicate most SmartCards.

The procedure for duplicating is identical for all card types, for example purposes we'll use the FunCard.

First you click on the "Quick" icon (MasterBurner - Quick Icon). The "Quick" window will appear;

MasterBurner - Duplicating cards
MasterBurner - Duplicating cards

From the "Card" menu, select the card type you wish to duplicate:

MasterBurner - Select card to duplicate
MasterBurner - Select card to duplicate

No click the "Write" button (don't be afraid - I know it sounds weird to Write when you really want to Copy but this really is the right button).

Now the duplication process starts. A popup will ask you to insert the original;

MasterBurner - Insert Card please
MasterBurner - Insert Card please

Insert the Funcard and Click "OK".

Note: If you have selected the wrong card type or if the Card is copy protected, the software will warn you. A pop up will occur, telling you that the device is locked. Check to see if the card type you selected is OK. If you did not select the correct card type, you will not be able to copy the card. Select the correct type and try again.

Now Masterburner will walk you through the process and read the content of the card.

MasterBurner - Insert Target Card
MasterBurner - Insert Target Card

After reading it will ask you to insert the card to copy to and again will guide you through the copy process.

At the bottom of the window, Masterburner will tell you when it's finished ("Card Ready...").
