    Hey peeps!

    I got the Dreamcast IDE adaptor found here >> https://gametrackssite.wordpress.com/

    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
