Can the Atarimax MyIDE Flashcart be put inside a 800XL, and used as an internal.

:D Hope so.

Not really, unless you want to connect all the wires from the cartridge port to the cartridge edge connector and then tuck it inside the machine.


In that case it would just act like a cartridge that cannot be removed and you couldnt use other cartridges in that machine anymore.
