[Review] MicroSDXC card Sandisk Ultra 400GB – AliExpress – for MegaSD.

The MicroSDXC card Sandisk Ultra 400GB was acquired in AliExpress, shop Samsung Global Store, for use with my Megas, the FPGA Terraonion, which is still on the way, straight from Stone Age Gamer (actually tangled up in Curitiba fault of the Post Office or the Federal Revenue, these two wastes that only delay Brazil).


The Megas implements a Sega CD in FPGA, in other words, it is capable of running all Sega CD games in one Mega Drive or Analogue Mega Sg from a microSD card.

The Sega CD game library is relatively large. The group package Redump has 272 items, that total 119 GB. So you need a microSD with a lot of capacity.

The Megas also runs Mega Drive games, Master System, e SG-1000 (the latter only in Mega Sg). The package SmokeMonster with the ROMs of that system has more 12,3 GB.

So far a credit card 200 GB would be enough. But I opted for the MicroSDXC card Sandisk Ultra 400GB to have enough slack because the Redump package is not yet complete. I have a Trurip package that totals 249 GB.

To complete, the Megas brings a new possibility, which is to modify the Mega Drive cartridge games to use CD audio. This was actually possible since the release of the original Sega CD, but interestingly none softwarehouse explored this possibility. As far as I know, the first game that comes with an audio CD to optionally be used together with the cartridge and have CD audio is the Pier Solar and the Great Architects, RPG aftermarket released in 2010.

But with the launch of Megas, the community is already moving to modify Mega Drive games and give them CD quality audio. Five of them have been released at the time of writing this article: Moonwalker, Out Run, Streets of Rage 2, Battles and Ys III: Wanderers from Ys. This list tends to grow, so it’s good to have space for future releases.

Choice of MicroSDXC card Sandisk Ultra 400GB

The choice by the MicroSDXC card Sandisk Ultra 400GB was easy. I have several cards from Sandisk and they never gave me any problems. SSDs also have brand, and the few that have been problem exchanged under warranty. Ultra has enough speed for the task, so I did not want to spend more in version Extreme.

The price of Sandisk cards on AliExpress is great, much lower than those found in Brazil, and the store Samsung Global Store tens of thousands of sales and reviews positive, so I bought with them without having to think too much.


Check out the photos and the video of the unboxing from the MicroSDXC card Sandisk Ultra 400GB:


My first step was to check the code on the packaging of the scratch card check website of the Chinese Sandisk, to make sure that it was a legitimate product. And the confirmation was made:

Final Considerations

While the Megas not enough, I already left the MicroSDXC card Sandisk Ultra 400GB ready with the packages No-Intro, from the SmokeMonsters, all CD images from Redump, and as 5 MD + ROMs and their respective audio files. I've used 146 GB and I have 220 GB pounds. In total, 366 GB usable on the card, which has already been formatted in exFAT format, which is supported by Megas.

The firmware files for the Megas, that can only be downloaded using the serial number and, therefore, I will only be able to download it when it arrives. Mas pelo menos já está tudo semi-pronto para testa-lo assim que a Receita Federal e o Correios pararem de atrapalhar a minha vida.

Essa loja é oficial da Samsung ou tem nada a ver apesar do nome?

Good morning! Eu tentei entrar no link da lista de roms do Smoke Monster mas não consigo acessar! Diz que o link precisa ser liberado pelo administrador do emuparadise!
Como você conseguiu baixar as roms? Pode me mandar o link por favor? A hug!

[…] A Stone Age Gamer tem várias opções de cores e etiquetas para o cartucho. I am traditional and I chose the black cartridge, how were the official cartridges of the console. But on the label I opted for Retro Space, that costs $ 5,00 the more than the most basic (Base). Not opted for microSD card, pois vou usar o mesmo que já uso com o MegaSD, that I bought on AliExpress and already showed it here on Skooter Blog. […]
