That's also an option. Where can I buy a 512kb cartridge BTW?

Appears on eBay once in a while. Also some 1MB carts float around.

I see. I will keep looking then...

Guys, if you have spare ones you want to get rid of, I am a potential buyer! Wink

I have tested the 4mb cart for a few hours now, for most of my software on disks and loadrom in dos1 90% works very good. I have problems with loadrom in dos2 (sunrise ide interface)
I think I will continue using this cartridge in my 64k MSX2+ because the original 64k is useless for european disk based software and utilities.
My Vg8255 have 512kb mapper and my Turbo R have 1mb these computers works absolutely best without the cart.

Whom did you buy your cartridge from? Which computers have you tested the card on?

I am tempted to buy one as well. Is MSX-DOS 2 stable with it?

Bought the cartridge from padial hardware in spain costs 75euros, tested the cart on the following Panasonic A1WX MSX2+, Sanyo Wavy 70FD MSX 2+, Sony HBX MSX2+, Philips VG8235, Panasonic FS A1GT Turbo R.
Have not tried odo rom loader, I use loadrom 1.0 which support big rom files.
Works with Dos2 but there the loadrom soft get problems whith 1mb and over rom files, smaller files like 32kb runs fine, when running dos1 loadrom does not have the same problems.

I think it's worth taking a risk! Smile Did the cartridge come in a proper case? I might order one too.

No it does not come in a case, it can fit in a sony or konami game case, the print is not very big, I have decided not to use a case, but beware of putting it the wrong way if you dont use a case Smile, instruction and video! on the padial page!
