got an MSX..

an MSX 1 with 64k but without floppy drive or ide. Thats the 1st issue but worse, I cant find a flash card to buy anywhere - just lots of dead email addresses. :(

But I may just be misundertanding how to get games running on it. Do I need extra interfaces such as IDE or floppy interfaces first, and anyway will a flash card work on a base MSX1 ?

anyone genned up on MSX and could give me a few pointers of where to actually get hold of a flash card and what I need, what'll work?

looked around a few msx sites without a lot of success. help !

TIA as ever :)

You can buy a very nice flash cart for the MSX at msxcartridgeshop.com for 60 EUR; unfortunately, you do need MSX-DOS to load cartridges into it, so you would need a floppy drive of some kind. You might try asking around on msx.org for that.

hi!

ta for info :)

I'll do that, and will let you know where this particular rabbit hole leads. i cant really justify buying an msx2 THEN a cart and that seems a perceived wisdom out there. I'll post for a floppy.

cheers

any one else got any info btw please continue help fill in the gaps :)
