    Hand made Neogeo Memory Card. #2

    IMG_1309.JPG
    I need to change the memory block cause I added a small switch.

    Changed the cover with black one also


    Looks strange but the switch works very well
    The region is changed when I changed the switch.

    This is really cool! Where did you find a diagram for the memory card? And do you have the part number of the connector? I'd love to try this out. You planning on making a real enclosure for this thing?

    I thought Neo Geo cards were just regular PCMCIA FLASH cards?

    Nice effort nonetheless!

    I want to say he open sources it too...but that could have been a different project...

    I’ve got a couple of his cards if you want some pics

    Is it possible to replace the volatile RAM in the original memory card with non volatile? I'd be interested in doing that for a little project.

    Thank you Neodogg, I'm aware of the NSM but I never managed to get one while they were in stock. That's why I was thinking about making my own.

    Considering the build here (why use a protoboard if you're not gonna use the soldering pads?????) you can clearly see the "circuit" which is almost a direct connection from the RAMTRON chip to the PC Card connector. Seems like an easy enough project to do, if indeed that's all it takes to drive a neo-geo memcard.

    If I had a unit with a memcard reader I'd probably try my hand on it, seems like a lightweight fun side project.
