Chinese-made thingy that plugs into that weird rectangular-ish port in the lower right of the back of the DC, under the power port and to the right of the A/V port. Plug an SD card or microSD card--I used a Micro Center 16 GB, Fat32-formatted microSD card in its own SD card adapter--into the appropriate slot on the SD SD Adapter V2 and the files on the card can be read by the DreamShell boot loader and DreamShell program (see entry 1626), which can then use it for file storage, dumping GD-ROMs and VMU saves to it, etc.
Full notes in my Flycast entry (see entry 1615).

(I kept calling the DC SD Adapter V2 "Card Reader" instead of "Adapter." : P)

Dumping my Japanese Dreamcast's BIOS with DreamShell 4.0's "BIOS Flasher" module and a DC SD Adapter V2, importing it into Windows, and finding this fixed the problem with music not playing during Guilty Gear X battles in Flycast.
