Ola Chino, i m on my way to grab a very used Mv8800 and thinking about replacing the standard hdd. What is in your experience the easiest and the safest way to do it?
Cf reader? Disk on module?
Ciao!

I prefer the CF card reader to a micro sd adapter mod. It allows you to remove the sd card (while the MV is powered completely OFF) and fill it with your own Patches, samples etc.

 Removing the card? So You opened a hole on the chassis...  :o No, I d do a mess! I was just thinkink about it like a permanent solution so using a cf card as a internal hdd for me would be ok anyway. Could You post the model You tested in detail, please?
Thank you for your time, Chino.

No hole in the chassis. I bought a CF to micro SD adapter that loads from the bottom. That way I can easily slide the micro SD card out(once the MV is completely powered OFF. I currently still have to remove the bottom metal plate to access the micro sd cards.

The below is copied from a previous thread post;

SYBA 2.5" IDE HD with DIY Compact Flash memory adapter  $10.99
Extreme CompactFlash Card Adapter for microSD (2x) to Type I CF up to 128GB  $15.99
2 64GB PYN Elite-X micro sdxc cards class 10 90MB/sec.  $56.99

Most CF to sd card adapters have sd card slots on the side. This makes it difficult to remove the card without having to remove the sd adapter first. I purchased a micro sdxc adapter that allows the cards to be removed from the bottom of the compact flash drive.

Hey Chino, could you post a pic of your mod? Im slightly confused how you can remove the SD card without opening the whole chassis up.

Thanks!

You would still need to open up the bottom of the MV8800. The CF card adapter that I bought only allows the micro sd card to be slid out from the bottom of the adapter. Ill post a pic when I get a chance.
