I believe it doesn't work coz the reader lacks +/- 12volt...

Easy to fix.

But, really any electronics use 12V??.

I think it only reads ROM

Yes, it basically only downloads the ROM contents and uses it in the emulator. It is able to use the sound pin from the cartridge as well, but AFAIK that is not used yet in any software (i.e. MSX PLAYer).

I'm not sure about the last one, as the SCC sounds quite frigging good on MSXPLAYer+USB game reader. I'll try if I can confirm this. But euhm, elements, didn't you ask this question (one or two times) before?

Yeah, and it would get REALLY interesting if you could use an actual SCC or FM-PAC in an emulator....

otherwise it's more of a showoff. Almost like putting an usb cable into a msx cartridge, firing up an emulator with the same game and claiming it runs the actual cart.
