well here's an interesting site: DC Expandability but here's an excerpt: Sega has confirmed that a DVD-ROM drive will be available ("when the time is right") to those who wish to upgrade the Dreamcast's GD-ROM drive (which already holds over 50% more data than standard CDs). ... the Dreamcast's form...

PS2?

Prophet ][ The think is that if somethin were to act like a VMU, the DC can only read 200 blocks at a time. If you look at 4mb VM's you have to switch to different 200block chips. Well how does the Xbox or PS2 HDD work? I'm sure the Xbox or PS2 doesn't read the HDD like 8MB memory cards. So couldn'...

i think that would be cool a zip drive for the DC.....

someone needs to look into that!
i'm pretty sure the ingenious minds of this community can get an interface going for a Zip (hopefully 250 or more) Drive and the DC.

Hard Drive

I remember there was some talk of Sega making an attachable Zip hard drive.
I was wondering if anyone here or anywhere made any headway with that?
