Hello!I have a nms8280 and a vg8235 from philips.Those msx models have an internal 128kbyte memory mapper and 128kbyte vram.I would like to upgrade them with an external memory mapper of 1mbyte or more.Does anyone have one for sale?I am not interested for megaram cartridges as i have read from forums that these memory mappers are only able to run games and rom files of games.

Do you know where i could buy one?
Thank you!

Probably from Padial Hardware, although I'm not sure about if he's still active, you can try to get in contact with him.

In that site there are lots of good hardware for msx i hope i can contact him!Doraemonppc thank you i will send you an email.One question though,does a 4mbyte memory mapper work ok?I have read somewhere that there are some problems with that much ram and that 1 mbyte sees to be better.So does it work ok with programs that need more ram?
Regards

I was using it in the same msx that you have, a nms8280 without problems.

I've also a Padial 4Mb external mapper and my only complaint goes to their shape. It's a very old model and it's even 2cm bigger than a sunrise case. Now, if I'm not wrong, they fit Konami cases.
The usual drawback is that some software (a lot of software in fact) doesn't recognize the external memory, ExecROM for example doesn't makes use of this kind of memory; but hey, SymbOS works flawlessly with the expansion! Big smile
Maybe 1Mb could be enough; but the 4Mb expansion seems a good purchase anyway...

@jltursan

The padial 4 mb mapper fits into konami cases, the later model cases that is. like pennant race one or solid snake (if you dareCrying)

Sadly, the old one is one of the biggest pieces of hardware I've ever seen for MSX...oO
