Bollocks, the architechture of an MD is VERY different to that of a Master System. The Adapter is not an adapter as son, it DOES have circuitry in it that makes the games run. I beg you to try and make a straightforward adapter for yoru MS carts to fit in an MD, it will blow up the cart and/or console. Do you reckon the SuperGameboy addon is just an adapter as well? What about the Gamecube's GBA Player?

The only case where an adapter is used, and I could of accept backward compatibility, is the game Gear. The game geaar IS a Master System on acid. So the Mastergear Converter just maps the MS cart pinout to the GG cart pinout.

Other addons are to be ruled out. Only adapters would count.
