The biggest issue with the MMC slot on the CC2 is the fact that it isn't secured very well at all.

You ain't kiddin' brother!! Thanks again for fixing mine. :D

I stopped having birthdays when they stopped giving me toys!

 

I still get toys, every year. :D

Cool cart bro.
Ever hear of the stellar 7800 game Jinks?
I named myself after it. Wild eh?
So does that mean we are polar opposites or from other diamensions? No one can tell..

Again, I just have to stress how awesome Crossbow is.  Please, anyone who has 7800/2600 issues can rely on him.  This the work he ended up doing:

...and it works great!

It looks like the MMC shrouds that were used don't hold up very well to repeated re-inserts (mine cracked, and I still have to fool with it to find the 'sweet spot' where the card works) but it still works!

 

I'm glad he talked me into keeping it.  I was going to toss it.

 

Thank you!

I still have the 29th Birthday Adventure cart CPUWIZ made me... and I'll be 45 in June!

 

CPUWIZ made me a special cart several years ago too.  CPUWIZ and Pac Man Plus have both been HUGE assets to the Atari community at large.

Ok.

 

For anyone thinking of replacing the MMC slot on their CCII with an SD or micro SD or RS-MMC slot, it won't work:

SD/MMC slots can read MMC cards, but MMC (only) slots cannot read SD cards. :(

That list could get very long quickly, but both men are high on it. Both of the Al's are on it. Crossbow is on it. For those who remember Ed Siegler (I miss him) he made a HUGE difference for me in my early collecting days - I owe him a lot. Mr. Trade-N-Games himself Jason is on that list (his Atari collection is AMAZING). Metal Jesus, John Hancock, HSW, I could go on and on.

Kind, but I am just a dude.  That was probably about a decade ago, one of these eggs has something in common, with that cart. :D

Ha.

 

I looked quick and read that as, "CPUWIZ and Pac Man Plus have both been HUGE asses to the Atari community at large."

 

Thank you for what it *actually* reads...

 

BTW, awesome eggs CPUWIZ!  (somehow, that doesn't sound right) :ponder:

Hi guys!

 

Ok, I attached the new shroud for the MMC card...  This one was a newer one so it actually fit regular SD cards as well...  So, I tried one.  I had a 1Gb micro SD card in a standard SD card adapter:

20190504_101239.png

 

To my surprise, it worked!!!!!

From everything I read on line, it shouldn't have.  My only thought is that Chad put the correct protocols in place for the 'newer' SD cards, but still only used the older MMC shrouds (probably because that's what he already had).

 

This is very cool.  I used this part: https://www.mouser.c...xLG2b9p6QRWhow=

Please note that their stock photo looks different than the shrouds I got.  The ones I got were better suited anyway.

 

Now I'm wondering if the smaller 'micro sd' card slots will work... but I don't want to mess with this any more.

Thank you

 

So I also 3D printed a modified version of the cartridge case, supporting the new SD slot on all sides (even underneath).  It works wonderfully... I'm not touching this one again unless something goes wrong.

 

Again, I need to shout out to Crossbow, without you this cart would have went to waste.

Also...

 

If someone intends on getting the *exact* same part and attaching it in the *exact* same place I did, here are the .STL files to print the case for it.
