Sharksym has published the schematics on how to create an MMC card interface for MSX using an SCC mapper in this forum thread. Over there you can also see a picture of the final result. Using a patched diskROM and a 24kB flashROM BIOS it is possible to use the MMC card as if it was an external diskdrive. With an external diskmanager multiple disk images can be stored on the MMC card. The flashROM contains a high-speed read-only drive with MSX-DOS2 and necessary MMC system files. FAT12/16 partition support might be added in the future.
