For experts to discuss very technical stuff and newbies to ask why the Spectrum they bought off ebay doesn't work.

Thanks @hikoki, I had not heard if that device. Only problem is it is not listed for sale in the shop page. Maybe he will make some more at some point.

The Interface1Bis is indeed a great but of kit, but I found it complicated to get started, but once I got to grips with it, it's amazing what it can do. There are some YouTube supporting videos but they are voiced with a computer voice so aren't that great to listen too.

^^ there is a button in there to get notified when more pico units are available
the youtube guides for the 1bis are useful to set up the folder structure required on the sd card

I checked with @hikoki and he was referring to divsd-nano on sell my retro. There is a option there to be informed when they are back in stock.

Sadly it looks like the Pico unit hasn't been manufactured since 2015.

I have put a DIVDE+ Enjoy on my Christmas list!

That looks another interesting device. Is there any advantage of compact flash over SD Card based units? I wonder if they ship to the UK?

Hi Peter.
Yes, he ships to the UK. I live in Brazil and bought one.
The advantage is the compact device and that it is vertical. Less problems with conector. It is more reliable.
About cf x sd, no advantages as I know.
Regards.
