I want to add that feature to the release firmware, I hope I can make it in time, so you can export saves from your original megacd to the megasd, and continue your previos saved games.

I am curious about this to as well. I have a JVC X'Eye that I know does not work with the mega sd but functions as a flash cart. If the Mega SD works as a back up ram cart I can just use the mega sd to replace my mega everdrive as a cd ram cart.

I know it sounds redundant to use the actual cd hardware when you have the mega sd but it would be a nice option.

If you use the Mega SD to load a BIOS on your original hardware (preferably the BIOS version or region free equivalent that matches the hardware you are using), the Mega SD will work as a RAM cartridge. The data will be saved to your BUP folder as an SRM file with the same name as the BIOS you load.
