I am not financially able to buy a whole new MLDL2000 V2, but a USB board replacement is still doable cost-wise. Based upon this still being a possibility, and this new board will STILL have USB connectivity to the computer for MLDL2000 data manipulation, my preferances are:
1. Card Reader Case installation.
2. uSD card, with adjustable/expandable addressing capable of accomodating future larger uSD cards. Reason for this preferance over other SD sizes is strictly one of size - I'm sure Read/Write current drain is the same for all.
I would like to know what the "...few fixed errors.." and "...one or two extra features..." are. If these are significant and will make V1 systems outdated and incompatible with future ML2K PC software and features/capability, then I may have to give up on this project - I won't be able to keep up with the additional upgrade costs. If however, these are truly insignificant upgrades and ONLY being incorporated due to a new production run requiring different parts/board layouts caused by parts nonavailability, with no impact on support software compatibility between versions, then I am fully behind this project. I will gladly purchase the new, upgraded USB board when available.
I am very excited about the possibility of having Mass Storage capability added to the MLDL2000, and the uSD card is an excellent, compact storage unit.
