Taking in account the actual price of MSX cartridges, the MegaflashROM is a more economical solution unless you've very deep pockets.

Another cheap option would be to use MSXPlug in an iOS device connected to the tape input of the Arabic MSX.
Maybe pitpan could give him some instructions.

Here it is:
iTunes
MRC Link

It's more expensive than iTunes average, in theory it's illegal, but (personally) I don't care and I'm glad he did it.

Quote:

Plug your iPhone/iPod/iPad device to your ancient MSX computer and use it as the original cassette player to load games.
It features a 100% reliable iOS calibrated audio replaying system that enables ultra fast loading times in your MSX computer: all the games will load in less than 30 seconds!

Have you tried playing the .wav files directly from your laptop to your MSX? You might need a stereo -> mono adapter cable for this, but otherwise it should work.

Next step would be an MP3 player I think, burning CD's is waste of time... LOL!

If there's any way you can equip your MSX with a floppy drive (or better: SD / CF card reader, and/or MSX2 with built in floppy drive), that would be much easier though.

I get a feeling you have no idea how to use tape I/O with your MSX, correct? If so, download this book: MSX-BASIC v2.0 user guide (much of it applies to MSX1 too). Check out the tape-related chapters: pages 54-59 and 262/263.

Next you'll need something to connect the tape input of your MSX to whatever you're using to play the .wav (PC soundcard line out wouldn't be bad, as volume is often a problem, and line out produces a larger voltage swing than headphone output). A typical MSX cassette cable looks like this: MSX cassette cable. You have a cable like that?

If not, you'll need: a plug that fits into the cassette connector on your MSX, a 3.5 mm stereo jack plug, a length of 2 wire (audio) cable, soldering iron. You'd only use 1 audio channel (for example the left = tip of the plug), the Ultimate MSX FAQ has the cassette connector pinout.
