With renaming every game you add to the mini at this time with the same name being a pain in the rear, what if you had a load of worthless SD cards and you put just the one game on it, add a neat label that's a mini version of the real cover art work and before you know it you have an all new games collection?
I can't remember what the smallest SD card format there is out there, maybe 32meg? More than enough for 1 disk. And those plastic boxes some SD cards came with could be handy for storage, or as a means of protecting the label.
One problem does arise from this, if you forget your self and load another game you have saved directly to the C64mini that has high score saving then you could be dumping data on the wrong SD card...
Any way, imagine these type of labels being your fav C64 games instead? Ikari Warriors (PAL), Ghost'n Goblins you know would look cool.
I actually thought about that. I currently have 5 different SD cards for my 64C. One is a "scratch" card that has general-purpose stuff: games I'm currently playing, programs I'm writing, etc. Another has games from the SD2IEC collection and the GameBase64 collection. The third is all SID tunes.
I haven't started populating the other two cards yet, but they're going to get used soon.

Kees: Where are the two DB9 ports on the C64 "maxi"? And a simple joystick mapping menu.... really....

Kees: It's ridiculous and absurd! First they provide a joystick wich is absolutly horrible and simply mechanically as good as defect. Not up for the task. Then you have to spent hours and hours editing files and with cryptic ID's, to make retro joys working

wkr: I have a problem with the autoboot, for whatever reason it does not read the pendrive. It starts with the original carousel and although the pendrive icon appears below, I can choose it and it tells me that it can't read it. What could have happened?

thebricker: Just bricked my Maxi today. Have I got this right? If I use the steps from here, I end up with fw 1.30!?, Can I apply the official fw-update afterwards, or are there any additional steps required?
