Just showing a mod I recently found out about. I’ve installed an SD card slot in my Dreamcast to allow booting games and homebrew from a regular SD card. I’ve not seen too many videos of this mod and it doesn’t seem to get a lot of attention so I though I’d do my own.
Parts I used were from Maplin (UK electronics store). The following are the exact parts I used in this video.
1x Electrolytic capacitor 47uF 25V (Maplin part #VH32K)
1x Decoupling ceramic disc capacitor 0.1uF 50V (Maplin part #BX03D)
1x Metal film resistor 470ohm 0.6W (Maplin part #M470R)
1x 3mm LED (Any should do – for example part #N20FN)
1x Stripboard (Maplin part #JP46)
1x SD card interface – I bought a cheap multicard reader and gutted it for parts.

Stripboard Layout I designed using schematic
(My first attempt at designing a stripboard circuit – might not be the most efficient layout but works fine)

(right click “Save link as” on the Dreamshell download links – this confused me at first, lol)
