MMC64
MMC64The MMC64 by individual Computers gives you the possibility to read MMC (MultiMedia Card) and SD (Secure Data) cards with a maximum size of 4 GB with your C64. Use your PC/Mac/Amiga with a card reader to fill the card with software. The MMC64's built-in filebrowser expects PRG files, which are native C64 program files. Because of a flashable BIOS (Basic Input Output System) you can update the firmware anytime. The features of the MMC64 can be enhanced by several plugins.


This device is no longer available!
The MMC64 (SD/MMC card reader) and the Commodore Award winner Retro Replay (freezer module) were merged into one cartridge: the MMC Replay.

FAQ:
Q: Does the MMC64 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 MMC64. Since larger games or other programs which boot further files from disk will not work just like that, you cannot really call the MMC64 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 sperately to make it DFI functional.

Q: How far does MMC64 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
