I removed the ROM board from a dead MP2000 and the ROM slot from an eMate - also dead - and made a board that fits onto an Arduino. I can now read any ROM or Flash board out there without the need of a working MessagePad.

It's time like this that I wish that the Arduino had an ARM processor or the Raspberry Pi had a bit more of a bus. 

I wonder about the Arduino Due, are the address and data busses adequately exposed to allow code execution?
