Multimedia Nintendo DS

Posted by Dan Styan

Turn your Nintendo DS and Lite into a fully multimedia player with Max's hardware addon.

With this hardware addon you can listen to music, watch films and play emulators and run various programs, all can be stroed onto a flash card up to 8GB of storage.

At the heart of MAX Media Dock is Datel’s exclusive MAX Media Player, supplied on a DS cart. Insert it into the slot used for DS games, and you’re ready to roll with our fully featured browser. From here, you can access data stored on a Compact Flash card, which fits in your DS’s GBA port using the supplied Media Dock.

Still having to change cartidges over all the time though, something that annoyed with me Game Boys

MAX Media Player can play MP3s directly from your flash card, giving you access to music on the move. It can also stream video footage, and access your JPEGs for a convenient photo viewer. Perhaps best of all, it can launch executable programs stored on the flash drive, giving access to a thriving NDS home brew scene. Check out the MAX Media Player’s own mini-site at http://us.codejunkies.com/mpds/index.htm or do a Google search for “DS home brew” and you’ll find all sorts of downloadable applications, games and emulators for your new handheld.

Sounds very cool to me!

Sold in three versions, MAX Media Dock for DS and DS Lite is available bundled with 1GB or 2GB Compact Flash card, or there’s the cardless Base Version for those who already have a Compact Flash card.

You can expect to pay £30 for the base version. £55 for 1GB version and £85 for 2GB version.

You can buy this on codejunkies.com

Pretty good they broke it up into diffrent sizes for diffrent prices, no way was the 4GB for £130 gonna sell well on its own.
