But the Arduino can be extended with a LCD with menu keys for choosing the current LIF file, for example. Or perhaps i can do it with a special HPIL command...
You could implement a virtual media switching mechanism. As default the first (or most recently chosen) LIF container is the active one. The command set could be like this:
  • EJECT - disconnects the current medium (LIF container)
  • SEEKMD n - Selects medium n (n in X register)
  • SEEKMDA - Selects medium by Alpha name
  • NEXTMD - Selects the next medium in queue
  • PREVMD - Selects the previous medium in queue
There could also be some housekeeping functions, like checking SD card free space.
