The Max Media Dock isn't quite so popular anymore, but I decided to dust mine back off to take a new look at it.

The Pros: A quick Google of DLDI or Drunkencoders will get you the proper DLDI driver for this product. Using this driver, homebrew program authors have essentially cracked the device, giving it compatibility similar to most other slot-2 (GBA slot) devices. With some minor workarounds (most of which are now documented), this device can run DS Linux, DS Organize, nesDS, Bunjalloo, and many other programs. Compact flash memory is very inexpensive. The Max Media Dock includes a no-pass card, which is normally another $15-20.

The Cons: Unlike nearly EVERY OTHER Slot-2 device on the market, the MMD (Max Media Dock) does not give you extra memory to be used as RAM. Because of this, many programs (DS Linux, SNESDS, Bunjalloo) will run very slowly, and you won't be able to use all features. Those who wish to run backups of their DS games without the cartridge will be sorely disappointed, as the workaround for getting ROM dumps to work is pointlessly time consuming and doesn't work for many games. The nopass device (Max Media Card) must be present in the DS-Slot, even if you've flashed or altered your firmware. The device is huge and heavy, weighing down the (in my opinion) already heavy system. Homebrew compatibility is still lower than many other devices because Datel didn't really make this for homebrew games. The MMD drains batteries because a card must be present in slot 1 and slot 2. The MMD does not interface with any slot-1 solutions such as the R4. Datel has essentially dropped support for the product, squashing hopes of firmware updates or bugfixes. The pre-packaged OS for the device is confusing and nothing like how the manual or Datel's website described it.

Verified Purchase
This is Mike, I'm 16 (Son of Jane), And I've owned this since November 2007. This review is kind of long because there is alot to explain on this device.
Okay, let me re-explain what the description says. This device goes in Slot-2 of a Nintendo DS (DS (Phat) or DSlite) and can play music and games. Now I'll explain that.
By 'Games' It means limited homebrew games and applications (Game's/Applications not made by nintendo)and they are limited in a lot of ways but expand the DS functions, such as IRC, Music, Even A Terminal Based Limited Linux (Needs extra RAM to do pretty much anything, which is impossible to use with this Device). The support for games is limited, especially older ones, because older games were for specific devices. In 2006 (I think), a person named Chishm made DLDI, which allowed you to patch a game/app with the instructions on how to access you flashcard, so alot of newer stuff works, but the bootloader in the menu kind of sucks, so you have to use a program like DSorganize just to get some to run.
It runs the big apps like MoonShell (Nice MultiMedia Player) and DSorganize (Nice... Multifunction tool), but everything small seems to have problems. There is no new firmware updates and the musicplayer and video player seem like a joke compared to moonshell. As for commerical game support, Only a few (like maybe 20) older games are supported, and you need this program to patch it for you, and newer games can't be patched because of some change in the way the file is put together. Even if it does patch, it's a miracle if it even runs because the program barely runs and your always reformatting your compact flash card.
Mine didn't come with a compact flash card, which actually is a bonus because the ones that do have these really cheap cards that don't work.

I got a Max Media Dock a bit after it came out. I suggest that you should get the one that comes with the 2 GB card because Its hard to find a cheap CF card. I had to wait a month or two to find a cheap one. But it was worth the wait because I have all my music on it already. I suggest this to anyone who loves music

I purchased this about two days ago from the local GameStop where I work. It's easy enough getting music and movies to work on it (simply convert files, the drag and drop them into the folders), but getting homebrew games to work was more difficult than I expected. Apparently, this particular drive is notorious for not having the proper support for homebrew games right out of the box; however, with a little help from online forums, I was able to locate the DLDI file necessary to make games compatible with this media dock (many websites offer free downloads of the necessary files and patching tools). Once the games were treated with the compatibility patch, most (but not all) of them worked. Sometimes games will freeze up or music playback quality can be grainy, but all in all it's still a nice addition to the Nintendo DS accessory list.
