    I'll solder a Dreamcast mobo into a TV

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Similar to how there's a TV with a built-in PS2.

    I do have a Dreamcast mobo I wouldn't mind doing the SD card mod to

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    But the money of it makes it bleh
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I don't recommend those cheap SD card adapters, they feel so flimsy even though the price for them are way too expensive, and are a dollar store SD card reader.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I saw that you can do an internal SD card mod, I've seen a diagram for it somewhere.

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Iirc theirs a mod that directly solders to the main board
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Aha found it

    I haven't seen any available kits for the mod

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I suppose you have to resort in buying the components for yourself, after all they cost little.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Why not they do the same with the BIOS replacement kits?
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    I'd rather wait for a kit to become a available

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I'm happily more confident to do it myself without a kit.

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    And If you get a part that might be defective you'd need to wait longer and spend more

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Unless there are additions that need to be done.

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    @K3N1,
    You're right.
    +1
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Why it's better to buy directly from reputable sources

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Yes, and not from some shitty Chinese store.

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    They are many repetable component stores to name such as RS Components.

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    But then there's added tax to the mix.
