DexDrive software for Linux

What is Dexux?

Dexux is a program that allows the InterAct DexDrive, a hardware device which reads and writes PlayStation memory cards, to be used under Linux.

The InterAct DexDrive also exists in a Nintendo64 version; support is forthcoming but still in the research stage.

Can I use it right now?

Yes... but it's not done. Please treat it as ALPHA quality software. If you have anything important on your memory card then please back it up first (either copy it using the PlayStation or use the offical DexDrive software).

If you have an N64 DexDrive, Dexux will currently not function.

Will it work with other operating systems?

Dexux is developed on a GNU/Linux system; it may work on other operating systems. I would like to hear success stories and receive patches.

If your interested in an alternative MS-Windows software then you might wish to explore using PSXGameEdit. Please note that this software has not been updated in quite some time.

Can I download it?

Yes; Dexux is released under the GNU General Public License, version 2. Please take a look at the files page on SourceForge..

How can I get in touch with you?

The new maintainer, Benanov, can be reached via Sourceforge. You may also visit the project's main page and the project's message forums.

What's next for the project?

The goal is to add N64 DexDrive support first. There seems to be absolutely no documented support for N64 DexDrives, most likely because the N64 is two generations obsolete, InterAct has folded, and most other projects have moved on to more current hardware.

What other related projects exist?

SourceForge does have some other projects related to the Sony Playstation:
