Anyway, it was still working last times played it,which was a few months ago but after the last update.
I knew about retaining the removed games - bought Ninja Spirit a while back. Like I said, it runs fine with the wireless off, but as soon as the wireless is on (to see what the day's free game is) the app shuts off. Doesn't even make it past the screen where Bonk drags the Turbografx logo with him. It's just a theory of mine that it is Hudson's (?) way of forcing users to update to the version that has the Irem games removed.
Thanks for the responses, everyone!
