Just ordered one now before realizing there might be some hardware incompatibilities. How does this one work with Sega Wondermega RG-M1 or JVC X'Eye?
MegaSD will work with both consoles, however it's CD portion will be disabled due to bus conflicts with the optical drive that's already present in those machines.

Ideally MegaSD is used in a console that doesn't have either an internal CD drive or attached CD drive.

I don't suppose you've tested it with the megapc right? Can't see of a reason it won't work (it's basically a md2 on an ISA card)

Hmmm, I am not sure about that one. I don't think we have access to one of those.

I assume this isn't something that can get circumvented by a firmware update or custom bios. Would it be possible to mod the console with a switch so that you can enable/disable it?

Question for the devs. Does Mega SD support Pier Solar? I own the cartridge but would prefer to play via flash cart. Problem is, Mega ED X7 does not support this game

On a related note, if Pier Solar is supported can you load the soundtrack disc via Mega SD and play with CD audio?

Thanks

Yes and Yes!

Place the Pier Solar rom into the same folder as the CD Bin+Cue. On the MegaSD menu you will see a little Icon that says 'MD+' signifying an enhanced game.

I plan to get a megasd - when I try it I will report back
could be a couple of months though....

Can the Mega SD play Sega LD games?
As of right now, no.
