Hey peeps!

I got the Dreamcast IDE adaptor found here >>

Now... I picked it up yesterday... to discover the IDE connector isn't attached... which then lead me to believe that I might be able to make the mod a bit more discreet than hacking a hole in the back...

Then i looked into using an ide to sd adaptor... has anyone used these for anything before? would they ne fast enough to run games from it?

Ta!

i have some ide to sd card adapters bookmarked for that reason. i already have an sd card slot wired to the serial port which is slow. So my thought was by running it from the ide interface i may gain some loading speed with a cheaper medium that i don't need an external power source for

In my experience ide to sd doesn't work as it won't work when set to slave which is required for the mod.

Ide to compact flash works very well though.
