There is a Victor IF-7510 VHD Interface up for sale on Yahoo Japan, as part of a bundle with a Victor HC-5 MSX1. I know that various people have been looking for the VHD Interface module, so thought to mention it. It is currently listed for 11000 Yen with 0 bids.

Also, we don't have a IF-7510, but a IF-7910 listed as the Type of the VHD interface here and on GenMSX. Could it be that the 7910 does not exist, and should have been 7510 all along, or are there two adapters?

Probably confusion with the IF-7900 conceived for the HC-7. As HC-5 has been released before HC-6 and HC-7, the interface should have a reference before (and not after) the IF-7900.

Ok, seems someone swooped in and snapped it up for 16000 yen with the "buy now" option.

The IF-7510 is a basic VHD interface but the IF-7910 is a VHDpc interface.
VHDpc interface is able to read a program like the BASIC on the VHD (digitally recorded on the track of audio channel B) to offer an interaction.

Interesting read. Seems we need to update our description of VHD a bit.
