I presume this works fine on an 800XL, if so I'd be interested in one.

Could you make a list of Compatible computers and the software we can run from it? Like Dumps for Disks, Carts, Tapes?

Ummm... in the video, with the card inserted, it looks a little long for the 400/800... does it fit?

From what I see in your nice video and looking at the device:

1) It is SDX only (the regular MyIDE drivers won't work).
2) Regular cartridges other than internal BASIC (and any other internal carts) can't be used.
3) Is it a PBI device or?

Your board looks very nice, but it would be very useful if you (and/or a friend) posted a more complete description of your product before asking folks to pre-order. (Maybe I missed a description in another thread?)

Hello Larry

As far as I can see in the video and on the picture, it plugs into the cartridge port. What I would like to know is if this device uses all of the memory inside the CF or just half of it.

sincerely

Next thing us 800xl owners will need is a multi-cart add-on, so we can have SIDE and Ethernet at the same time...

...Interesting, similar to Atarimax's IDE cart, but CF-enabled...


Could we see a picture of the finished product (including cart case)?
