Hardware interfaces

MemcardRex supports communication with the real Memory Cards via external devices:

1. DexDrive
As you may or may not know DexDrive is a very quirky device and sometimes it just refuses to work.
Even the first party software (DexPlorer) has problems with it (failed detection of a device).
If you encounter problems, unplug power from DexDrive, unplug it from COM port and connect it all again.

It is recommended that a power cord is connected to DexDrive, otherwise some cards won't be detected.
Communication was tested on Windows 7 x64 on a real COM port and with a Prolific and FTDI based USB adapters.

To select a COM port DexDrive is connected to go to "Options"->"Preferences".

2. MemCARDuino
MemCARDuino is an open source Memory Card communication software for various Arduino boards.

3. PS1CardLink
PS1CardLink is a software for the actual PlayStation and PSOne consoles.
It requires an official or home made TTL serial cable for communication with PC.

With it your console becomes a Memory Card reader similar to the DexDrive and MemCARDuino.
