Vectrex SD Cart?

Recommended Posts

Very nice, well done - it could have a sticker covering the entire surface - or even wrap around the edge and whole bottom part. Unless one feels the 3D print is nice and stylish.  ;-) 

I remember someone saying something about this before and wanting to put it in a real cartridge case.  Someone replied that they liked the 3D printed enclosure.

After having used the same form factor for VecFlash for a while now I can say I do enjoy the smaller size and have never put it in upside down yet.  Give it a try, I think you'll find it very intuitive and yes, stylish!

It is also designed to fit in a standard case. A bit of tricky case cutting is required though.

Nice, looks really good with the sticker and not a bare 3D print.

For those of us who have the cart but before the new label was created,  will they be available separately in the future?

Windows and Linux supports formatting an SD as FAT(16). macOS should as well.

Richard told me no-go on Macs, though apparently there's a semi-complicated Mac workaround that someone created. However I think I came up with an easier method of using a Dell Venue 8 Pro (full Windows 8.1 Pro in Desktop Mode) tablet that I've had for years and forgot about haha.

It's still no-go on Macs - Richard PM'd me recently about it.

Even using the terminal: https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/226975/how-to-create-a-fat16-partition-on-an-sd-card-with-os-x-el-capitan

Or you could just boot up (without installing) Ubuntu 20.04 of your Mac computer and use gparted to format the drive to Fat16.
