Yeah I am fairly sure it will work with the MX4, that's the kind of connector on it now. I'll have to double check of course.

This is totally crazy  :o
@Duke
Quoted from your page :"If enough are interested, I will run a batch + it’ll motivate me to finish and polish things up."
I'm interested in 1, you can count me in.

Thanks, if I get a feeling that atleast 10 people are interested, I'll source the components for those and see how it goes.

Well I didn't tell about it, because I wasn't sure if it was going to be possible (getting rom mapping to work was horror!) or if I would give up on it :)

The rom that makes it possible is one I wrote, it's loaded into the RAM of the MCU and currently mapped as rom7 to replace AMSDOS (more game compatiblity, when loaders disable other roms and re-enable only rom7). It's just a tiny hook of the CAS_ routines and some code to communicate with the M4, of course some RSX commands too.
However it can run as another rom as well (ie. rom6), as it doesn't have any real disc routines yet, that is needed if one wants to access real discs.
About the sd card, what is the file system ?

It's FAT32 or less. Using FATFS on the Cortex M4, with SDIO.

Yes, I'd love one if that's possible.

If it works in a 464 without an extra ROM, that's a "killer board" IMHO.

"ARM MCU running at 168MHz" -- hah, oh yes!

Sounds to cool to be real :)

IF it works on a CPC464 (Schneider ;) ) - I'd be interested, too.
