(PCB Prototype Micro-SD-Version in a crystal blue SONY-MC-Case) (A new video recorded by Maximus32, which shows listing of folders and files on the root and a read-speed-test!) https://www.trisaster.de/file/sony/ps2/sio2sd/2020-05-16_sio2sd.mp4 (older Short Test-Video) @Takeshi made the first semi-professional versions, which are currently meant to be used by developers! The PCB is professionally produced, but the case is "borrowed" from another MemoryCard! Great progress! Once we have this implemented in some tools/apps (like wLE or even OPL), I hope you people out there spread the news, haha! Info Software Hardware Sony-MC Port-measurements Credits Attention SLIM-Owners! Gallery Reference & Discussion Let's get this thing going! The project is currently in a "Work in Progress" (WIP) Status! This post will be extended by various additional information regarding an Adapter for the MC-Port (SIO2-Interface, which is SPI-Compatible), which should enable us to utilize an SD-Card with the PS2 [and MAYBE even with an old Playstation!] (with a custom driver)! The original work regarding this, was done by @wisi and @Maximus32 (Connections and drivers!) in 2018! @dekkit already made some initial PCB-cuts/models (in a CAD/3D-Program) and another user (not sure how his name is here on board) already shared some Case-samples! @Takeshi made some new and professional PCB-Renderings and a booklet (in German and English, so translations are welcome!)! The related official threads have been linked in the "References & Discussion"-Tab! I will add more Infos, pictures, links and so on, in the future as well!

Here is one preview-picture! https://www.vts-tech.org/CCF03052020-TnA.zip Initial Project by @wisi and joined by @Maximus32 (shortly later on)! Driver-Code: @Maximus32 (updates) & @wisi (initial work) Additional code related to BDM/'Block Device Manager' and the SD-Driver and a (possible) OPL "in-game-core/driver": @Maximus32 Scheme for SPI-Interfacing between SIO2 (MC-Port) and the SD-Card: @wisi and visual mockup in a program/scheme by @dekkit! PCB-Renderings: @dekkit for the initial PCB-Renderings and his work on a documentation and... @Takeshi for the new PCB-Renderings and the booklet! Special THX to @jolek for helping out, structuring the thread! The driver currently does not work properly on DECKARD-PS2s (SCPH-75k and newer)! The following video from @Anakin94 (on a SCPH-90k) seems to indicate, that this is a software-issue which maybe can be fixed! Project-Progress: (professional version/PCB-Rendering) (produced 1st-batch Prototype-PCBs) (assembled PCBs chunked into a SONY PS2 MC-Case) (The writing of "Transmission" and "Inserted" is currently reversed - as it can also be seen in the video - but will be fixed in the final version.) DIY adapters: @Maximus32's DIY-adapter: @Crissaegrim87's DIY-Adapter: I will add more user-provided links/pictures of self-made adapters here (and possibly additional information, which isn't covered in the other tabs), later on!
