Hmm, maybe; maybe not. A Beeb enthusiast named John Kortink has
produced an MMC interface for a BBC Micro. It's called GoMMC and it
allows you to store files using a normal BBC filing system on a
MultiMedia Card. Actually the card stores disk images, but makes them
available to the normal filing systems. The card can also be
read/written on an IBM PC (so you can move it and back it up). Take a
look at
if you're interested.
