I am still looking for a compatible connector but I have pretty much run out of ideas.

SCP-55 seems to use a bespoke connector. At least I've never seen one like this on any card.
I would monitor Yahoo auctions to get another MCB-3 (pops up once in a while) and modify as needed.

Edit: Actually it reminds me of the connector of TDK MC/DMC cards but with more pins. The frame of both TDK and Roland cards is from Hirose. The connector must be also some custom\rare Hirose production.

By the way, I'm looking for the CD that came with TDK DMC9000. Could someone image it and upload somewhere please?

Do you need the floppy images as well? I have a CIB TDK DMC9000.

Took me a while as I got carried away with getting the updates and translating the README files and update information for the archived TDK web page. This is everything including the floppies and updates:

Here are some more archived pages that should be of use. I may convert them to translated documents at some point:

Thanks a lot for the images, cyclone3d! It's very helpful to have all the links too.

A couple of pictures of DSP Solutions PCMCIA sound card. Not sure it was ever released. The web page says:
OEM Basis Only! Contact us NOW!!
So it was supposed to be produced by third parties. Which they never did, I guess. Unless anyone have any evidences that this card was actually sold.

I know you have almost everything 😀 Wondering if you own either Media Magic or Magic Tempo card too.
Never seen one for sale, not even any traces. Just mentioned by someone in this thread several years ago.
