MMC Replay
MMC ReplayThe MMC64 (SD/MMC card reader) and the Commodore Award winner Retro Replay (freezer module) were merged into one cartridge: the MMC Replay from individual Computers. MMC64's filebrowser was completely overhauled, with great new functions added: It is now possible to create or mount .d64 files directly from the browser, or to seemlessly flash module software like Action Replay, Retro Replay, Nordic Power and The Final Replay with the integrated flash utility. The extended freezer mode provides memory configurations that will facilitate writing and debugging new software. Also the adaptation of cartridge software is simplified. C128 compatible!

The MMC Replay is now fully compatible with the C128 and SX-64 models – according to tests with 40 different computer machines. Even native C128 module software is supported!

This device is no longer available!

FAQ:
Q: Does the MMC Replay completely substitute a disk drive?
A: So-called "one filers" ending with .prg (the vast majority of the C64 software) work without any problems with the MMC Replay. Since larger games or other programs which boot further files from disk will not work just like that, you cannot really call the MMC Replay a fully-fledged disk drive substitution. There is a workaround, namely the DFI Plugin, a multiload file system which uses an alternative container format. However, any multi filed software in question has to be adapted separately to make it DFI functional.

Q: How far does MMC Replay support attaching D64 images?
A: You can execute single-load files from a D64, but multiload programs will fail, and you cannot write to D64s.

Q: Can I write data on SD card in C64 Basic V2?
A: No, that's not possible (so far).

Q: Plugin XXX doesn't work at all or as it should.
A: Check whether the plugin is FAT 16 or FAT 32 compatible. Most available plugins are only FAT 16 compatible. For help and support, contact the coder of the plugin in question.

Q: How do I format my SD card to FAT 16?
A: Windows command: format F: /FS:FAT /V:MMC64 /Q /X

Q: The internal D64 Mounter of MMC Replay does not seem to work, no matter what image I try. What is the problem?
A: Possibly, your C64 has JiffyDOS installed and activated. The mounter does not seem to be working with JiffyDOS. After disabling JiffyDOS you can easily mount D64 files.
