Wanted : 128Mb MMC Card for BBC Project
« on: September 01, 2008, 10:18:53 PM »
Im going to build one of these http://members.lycos.co.uk/mmbeeb/, but i cant find a 128Mb card for a decent price. Has anyone here got a spare?

(I might even make a board for someone(just pay the price for the parts - about £5 ish i recon) for whoever gives me one of these....)

I saw a load of the olde worlde ones in Asda today - but ignored them after a quick shuffle through as they were all too small for my own needs (got an SD card h/drive for my Atari ST's and could do with a 2nd one as a backup when imaging up original games) but there were a few 128Mb cards of different formats.

I'll have a nosey in there tomorrow night after work if you want?

I will take a look in my ASDA tomorrow lunchtime and have a look to see if they are selling any cheap - if im not successful I will get back to you.

I am now tempted to get a disk interface for the ST too now....

Shame the postage is more than the card itself.....

I've got two for the ST - one is Satandisk and is a SD "hard drive" (not as fast as a real one but faster than floppy disks!) and one I bought at the Atari Connexion in Paris earlier this year which is a replacement for the floppy drive (SDiskEmul) which I've yet to install as I am no good with a soldering iron!  The SDiskemul also works in the Amiga and Amstrad CPC series (same card and same SD card can be used across all three systems for their respective disk images).

Will have a look in Asda tonight as forgot to look on Tuesday.


Edit: If I can find it, I've got an old 32Mb one if that's any use for now?

Found some!  a 32Mb and an ex-TomTom SD card which has 118Mb.  PM me with your address and I'll pop them in the post.  Didn't work on the SD card for the Atari ST (it's very fussy about which brand will work properly) so no use to me.  The MMC Replay works fine with the 2Gig card so these are looking for a new home :)
