What exactly IS the MyIDE-II? Does it replace the SIO2PC interface?

This is an interesting question. I'll try to find out again this winter :wink:

I ordered a MyIDE-II about a decade(?) ago and never really found a purpose for it, actually because of the sparse documentation, but maybe I just didn't find it.
Maybe it's an all-purpose device and everybody needs to find out themselves how to use it and I just didn't invest enough time in doing so.

Looking forward to long winter nights in 2021 :D

I just realized, that I have the MyIDE + Flash "1Mbit Flash Cart & IDE Interface", not the MyIDE-II.
Do these differ a lot in functionality? Or is it just, that the MyIDE-II has the internal slot? Are there different versions of MyBIOS for these devices? I'll hop to the correct forum board now.

Here you are:

The IDE-Interface is the same, same port, only a different adapter.
You have 40 pin IDE where then new MyIDE-][ has a CF-slot.
You don't have SRAM and less FLASH for programs.
Cartridge has different IO-mechanism, but further is quit similar.

Latest firmware is here:

Since MyIDE-][ i did not update this BIOS anymore.
But still is a very good version. It's just because Steve stopped making them.


P.S. Just drop a line here or on my email on the way you progress.
Just to keep me up to date and I get to play with the MyIDE+1mb ;-)
