Cheap SD/MMC Readers

Post by danielj » Mon Oct 23, 2017 8:26 am

This is a placeholder post for the latest versions of SmartSPI and MMFS. These are bugfixed and more up-to date file system ROMs that work with Martin Mather's MMC reader design, the TurboMMC hardware, and the cheap SD Card Readers available on ebay.

Latest version of SmartSPI: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9208&start=150#p129221

Latest version of MMFS: https://github.com/hoglet67/MMFS/releases

With MMFS, you need to use the correct ROM version - see: https://github.com/hoglet67/MMFS/wiki/Release-structure

If you don't want to solder or otherwise build your own adapter then a compatible inexpensive reader is offered for sale in the trading topic, other inexpensive compatible readers are available ;)

If it helps, here's the current latest version (1613) of the SmartSPI ROM-image as a raw data file (inside a zip file) -- and not on a .SSD disc-image:

I'm setting up a mmc interface for a friend's beeb and thought I'd download a fresh copy of the "beeb.mmb" file pre-filled with games discs, but I'm really struggling to find where I can download this from...

I've tried searching the forum and google without success, the download link which I'm sure I used in the past on this thread appears to be dead, and the beeb.mmb file mentioned here doesn't seem to have a download link at all. Am I missing something obvious?

No, it is quite tricky trying to wade through the forums to track down a copy of BEEB.MMB. For now, try this one:

it's not dead :roll:
if you look after the first few edits, then my text, then a further 4 edits below this, the first one is from member 'duikkie'
which still works (222+ other folk must know!! :lol: ), as on the forum, not an old upload site #-o
