    this one is better:

    plays mp3s, saves dreamcast games, and functions like a normal VMU during games.

    Accept according to this page
    http://devcast.dcemulation.org/other/prototype/prototype.php
    that was a prototype that never fully existed in any kind of retail situation, and since it was 2004, it probably could only store about 50 tracks lol

    implying the one posted in the OP exists in some kind of retail situation?

    Some dude on assembler has one. It was beyond prototype at one point.

    Someone on assembler has one, which means it transforms people into gods.

    We'll never, ever see another for sale, assuming it's the only working version.

    Now if they can get the ipod to have a vmu app and have it fully function like the vmu that would be sweet.

    Otherwise, nice case mod.
     
  12. That's pretty sweet. I want one.

    I never thought about gutting out an old vmu to stick a cheap mp3 player in it, no way I'm going to bother doing it myself :P cool though.

    Someone now needs to change the dreamcast into a dvd player.

    iPods don't take memory cards do they? for all other things, the dreamcast vmu connector was removed so you can put in the ipod connector, and I belive the earphones come out a little hole in the bottom. but you know, once it is in, why would you want to take it out? haha

    Poor poor poor VMU. Not only turned into an Apple product, but used to play BRITNEY SPEARS?

    The shame it must feel. =P

    Yeah seriously, that's exactly what I thought when I heard about this. Honestly though I won't consider buying an iPod unless I can install Rocksbox on it. Apple is so far behind the times they way they expect you to sync everything with their moronic software. This sort of shit was supposed to die with the Palm Pilot, people.

    And honestly, ever since I got my HTC Hero with a head phone jack, the one Rocksbox iphone I do have has been languishing. I don't even know or care where it is frankly.

    I was going to do that with the broken karaoke attachment I've got, but I never got around to it

    From this

    To something like this
