    I found a few pictures of a N64 USB Flash Cart on this website:

    Unfortunately the text is written in Russian. Has anyone more information about this cart?

    yarr! more rum, mateys! Looks like Google Translate needs some more work :)

    Anyways, didn't have anything, but a little searching (thing's actually called "N64 USB FLASH Cart", way to go for choosing a well google-able name! How about "Untitled Page" for the next one?) turned up a (russian) thread from a guy that (I think) is selling (making?) them.

    Yes, I know this site. The card was created by Sergi. I wanted to buy one of those back in december 2009, but then the Neo N64 Myth Card came out...

    It costs about 350 US Dollars and works similar to the Neo Myth card. It takes about 15 Minutes to write 512MB, and you have to set the save type manually. The card has 2 switches in the front:

    http://www.raregame.ru/image.php?url=30/N64_USB_Flash_Cart.JPG&w=500&h=500

    If you connect the card to your PC while your N64 is turned ON and try to flash it, it will kill the card.

    I found it via another site: http://www.krikzz.com/cart64.html
    Both owners know each other :)

    Thats all I remember, hope that will help you

    Are you sure this the same cart? krikzz's card holds only games up to 32mb and it has an external adapter to flash the cart while the N64 USB Flash Cart has 64mb and the usb connector is inside the cartridge.

    Krikzz and sergi make 2 different carts.

    http://gbx.ru/index.php?showtopic=46066&hl= - here is the sergi's n64 cart sale thread, you may be able to google translate more details.
    http://gbx.ru/index.php?showtopic=52902&hl= - pics of cart in n64.

    To tell the truth - his cart is not that great. VERY slow write speed, weird save support, probably needs different lockout chips to work with different games.

    He sells this cart for $230-300, depending on how much save types chips he installs in cart (you have to select correct save type with switches on front).
    If you need more details - ask, I may be able to answer you since I know him personally.

    re

    "probably needs different lockout chips to work with different games."

    Correct, I asked him if it was possible to create a switch in order to put all lockout chips inside one card. Only problem is that there is not enough space in the original cartridge case.

    sounds like the NeoFlash cart:)

    What a pity that it's so expensive.I hope krikzz's cart will be cheaper.
