SD Drive Device for NUON - is it possible?

Without an good emulator on a CD based system and no way to get a NUON Dev kit in order for anyone to be able to do serious coding on the system would be to have some kind of SD device hooked up to a NUON of the N501 type.

Is this even possible on the NUON?

What kind of device controller chip does it have in it? Proprietary? Does the SDK say anything about it?

There is no cartridge port on any of the NUON devices but there is a CD Interface cable connection....

yea, would need an adapter to go from ide or sata to whatever kind of connector that is inside the dvd player. I think i have a multicard reader in my desktop, I am pretty sure is ide, but having a hard time figuring out of that could be adapted to a dvd player

You would think that if they can do it on an Atari ST, Commodore 64, Atari Jaguar and other stuff that it would be possible on NUON. I just do not think a cable converter will do it.

is that through the controller port? what kind of connector is that on the controller ports?

You can change this now in User CP.
There was talk BITD about using the controller port to upload software, similar to how BJL worked on the Jaguar. The controller port is proprietary, using the Polyface chip mentioned which is needed for the controllers. As far as I know, no work was ever done on making such a device, just people like me trying to code on the N501 begging for a better solution that writing to CDs to test.

    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    That is such a Texas thing to say lol

    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
