I prefer SD too (over MMC).

What surprises me is that the MiniMig is displayed with what looks like a SD card.
I would say that's definitely the SD logo on that memory card.

I did some research and SD and MMC are pin compatible (Wikipedia). MMC is slightly thinner, but they also mention that sometimes you can stick MMC into SD slots. So does it also work the other way around? Of course this could only work if the MMC slot has some room to fit the SD.

Excuse my electric ignorance but isn't 500ma too much for a device which needs 100ma? Any chance of damaging it or does that occur only if you give it more volts? For example device needs 5 volts you give it 12v and device dies?


The 500 mA is the max rating. Let's just say any device that asks for more won't get it (or your USB port might get fried, I have seen that kind of behaviour with some older laptops).

If the USB device ask for less Ampere, the USB port will output less Ampere. So let just say Volt is fixed, Ampere is variable between 0 and the max rating.

And yes, if you screw up with the voltages, you can kill your equipment.

Does anyone here have a minimig?

How much heat does it create?

1) A lot
2) Not enough to worry like with the A500
3) Absolutely minimal amount of heat

and does it need a metal shield like the original Amigas 500, 600 and 1200.

Thank you!
