    Every adapter is done manually, you need to request author and wait several months. If there will be many of you who wants it - it can be faster.

    Wow...well that's something! I thought that this project had effectively stopped at IDE.

    Nice but I'm not seeing any way to buy one. Wonder if this could be adapted for the FZ-1.

    Looks like he's trying to do that already:
    http://3do-renovation.ru/USB_Host_for_FZ1.htm

    I wouldn't doubt there's a way to modify the adapter to work with the FZ-1, my guess is that there needs to be an update to the FZ-1 board to make it solder-less as he seems to be trying to make them as plug and play as possible.

    Is anybody interested in these? I'd like to get one, but 200 bucks is a pretty steep price. He'll do group buys which drop the price quite a bit.

    2 units = 162 dollars
    3 units = 142 dollars
    5 units = 133 dollars
    10+ units = 112 dollars.

    Just wondering if there was anybody like me that wanted one but isn't willing to spend 200 bones.

    Is that for the FZ-1 adapter or the FZ-10? Either way I'd be interested.

    What is everybody willing to spend? I'd put down 142 dollars for this. I honestly don't think we'll get 10 backers/supporters. And going from 3 to 5 people only drops the price 10 bucks.

    I'd like to pay as little as possible honestly, but $142 is alright. I agree that it'll be unlikely that the purchase is gonna draw a lot of interest.

    Before we get too far into this, does anyone actually *know* a developer from that site? I'd love to see a video demo of the unit in action.

    heres a vid of the harddrive unit running: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJr_Y6QrdGw#t=22 ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUS3T4GdR2M

    I would imagine the flashdrive unit os is identical.

    User superg has one, check the previous page on this thread he talks about it. He speaks fluent Russian, so maybe he could be a point a contact during the transaction. I haven't talked to him about this though. I'll send him a pm now.

    *Edit: superg said he would have no problems helping us out with the transactions.

    Updated list:

    citrus3000psi - $142
    Bm-Viper - $142
    Lastcallhall - $112
    stevo9389 - $142
    mickcris - $133
    vectrex_rox - $112

    Looking pretty good, if we could get 4 more people we would be in the 10+ plus range which would be absolutely awesome.
