Can anyone recommend an sdcard system for an Apple 2?

I spent ages tonight trying to work out why my Apple 2 wouldn't load files properly.
Turns out on the old 2's you had to load dos first.
Anyway who want's to screw around with dirty disk drives?

This card is pretty good Matt, although it's not cheap!

Unfortunately my IIe is dead at the moment so unable to use it
It doesn't suit a IIgs

hopefully will get to use it on my newly aquired IIc :-)

I can bring it round next time i see you to have a play

cheers

Wow they all cost a fair bit, but that's fair enough.
I wonder if there's one I can parallel with a drive, such that the drive makes the right noises, but the actual code loads off an sdcard.
I'm tempted to just build one myself.
There's a fair bit of code online about this.
What would be cool is if it could connect to home network via WIFI and you could go to a page on a tablet and select the disks you want to insert.
