Someone gave me an idea to document the firmware feature differences that the TZX_Tools firmware tool supports. TBH It is a good idea so we can dispel the myths and views on the different firmware as they all do something a little different. From this table, you can see why I prefer MaxDuino. Even more than my own firmware Digiwavuino. I’m sure over time I’ll have to update it and I’m sure there will be 1 or 2 incorrect entries but this is my view on the features.
FYI TZX_Tools is a tool that allows for simple updating of devices running the below firmware.

This our latest offering. Its called the Dragonuitape and its based on the Maxduino firmware (Thank you Rafaefl) . It’s for sale now in the online store. I hope you love it.
I realized very early on, that people wanting to update their TZXduino, MaxDuino, CASduino, or ArduiTape would struggle if they had no experience with the Arduino programming tool. So I built a FREE tool to do that for you in a way to give back to the Retro Community. Watch the video below and CLICK HERE if you want to download the tool.
This is a nice video by Phil Kruman reviewing the MSXuitape device to load MSX games stored in CAS file format from a microSD card on to an MSX. f you want to buy one head over to our online store CLICK HERE
This is an older video I recorded showing how to use the MSXuitape device to load MSX games stored in CAS file format from a microSD card on to a MSX. Now the unit in this video is a one-off in terms of material as they are normally black plastic and not a wood design. If you want to buy one head over to our online store CLICK HERE
