The SNES version of the Super Magic Drive, had an external Floppy disk drive with either 8 or 16M RAM to load games to. Had an adapter for Mega Drive game carts available. The box has both the Front Fareast and China Coach ltd. logos, so I don't know if this might have been a joint effort between the two(?).
It was released in Europe By Neil Gossage of S.N. Software Ltd back in 1992. All versions came with a PC HD format program again written by S.N. Software Ltd allowing you to format and read the disk to 800k or 1.6mb.
They also released a SEGA Megadrive / Genesis version.
The updated version featured a built in Floppy Drive.
