SD Card Size

This is the Base version of the Mega EverDrive X5, nothing fancy. This cartridge comes assembled with a black shell with waterboard style side grips and basic label. This is the only Mega EverDrive X5 shell that is compatible with the Japanese Mega-drive 1 that still has its cartridge locking mechanism intact.

Ever dream of having your whole library of Genesis / Mega-drive games in a single cartridge? The Mega EverDrive X5 allows you to load your game back-ups (commonly known as ROMs) on a microSD card, put the microSD card into the Mega EverDrive X5, put the Mega EverDrive X5 into a Genesis / Mega-drive and have your list of games at your finger tips. Please read the FLASH CART DISCLAIMER below before purchasing.

    Mega Everdrive X5 Review

    Posted by Phil "admiralpete" Starchok on Oct 6th 2020

    I purchased the Mega Everdrive X5 to play hacked games on real hardware. I have also tried vanilla ROMs from No-Intro with this cart. Vanilla ROMs are completely functional, and the main hack I play (Mega Man: The Wily Wars by MotZilla) works perfectly too. This version of the Mega Everdrive DOES NOT play Sega CD Games OOB, and I would not risk bricking my cart to attempt to go beyond what the official firmware does.

    This device is amazing and you need to own this piece of hardware! I really cant stress this enough!!! I've been a retro gaming collector for many years now focusing on SEGA. As great as it would be to own the entire original library, today that would be almost impossible and cost in the tens of thousands even if you could locate every single game. No emulation, this is still playing the game the true authentic way, only now you can own every single game ever released but on one cartridge. No more swapping cartridges. No more hunting down impossible rare to find games, Finally owing the entire Mega Drive/Genesis library is now possible and adorable. If you own a Mega Drive/Genesis and don't own this multi-cart, you need to get one now! The cartridge works flawlessly and all games work and load instantly. This really is the best and only way to experience what the Mega Drive/Genesis has to offer.
