Hi!

I have an ESE-MegaSCSI and I have found that there is a board that can storage in a SD card working for SCSI technology (board information). And I was wondering if it can be used in the MSX. Has anybody tried?

I used SCSI a lot on PC but it is a standard as long as SCSI2SD is standard compliant on the SCSI bus there is no reason it won’t work on MSX.

According this site the adapter for Amiga here works on MSX with the MegaSCSI, and it is cheaper.

Otherwise for a hundred euro, it is better to take a megaflashrom sd SCC+.

It's not the case with MSX devices because they support basic disks only.

I guess the other card mentioned on this site is this one: https://www.artmix.com/SD_powermonster.html

The old Stratos Technology site does not seem anymore to exist (links lead to dubious sites).

Thanks a lot for your answers.
I didn't know that there was SCSI for Amiga.
The fact is that I need a way to share files from my PC to my MSX. I had a Mega-SCSI with a hard drive and found that SCSISD card that could solve my problems. But as gdx says, sometimes there are problems with the MSX adaptations.
The other option to transfer files that I can think of, is the one gdk also comments, a megaflashrom sd SCC+. About this, I know that several were made by different companies, but I think that they are out of stock. In any case, do you have any preference for the MefaFlashRom?
