The best and cheapest think you can get is an X-MEM from the great Tot0.  :)

I don't think they are available anymore and they only fit a X4 Board by the looks of it, I need one that has an edge connector DK Tronics style with a pass through so i can use my DDI-3 as well. Then i could run the 128K Demos and games.

The other option is to set up a second drive on my CPC6128 but i have not made much of a start on that project yet.

Well, you can contact Tot0 and ask him about production. He will know. PM him or email him. He is a great polite guy and will surely help if possible.  :)


Also you can add a socket to a expansion port cable to be able to connect a MX4 card. That's the cheapest way. Of course it's needed to be somehow handy to squeeze that think properly on a cable.  :)

I did buy a DDI-3 from that seller, that expansion was my go to option if I could not get hold of an old one. I was after an original  DK Tronics model to begin with.

Ah, I see. You could even upgrade your DDI3 then :)
