There’s no point in re-inventing the wheel for sure, and as I wrote, I wouldn’t necessarily go for IDE, but for modern storage options that you can buy new. Like the SD cards you mentioned.

Ultrasatan uses sd cards.

Ultimately I would try and have a ultra-Satan board which plugs over the top of the DMA chip via a expansion header. If the add-on board was close enough to the rear of the case, a small slot could be made in the back of the case so the SD card is accessable externally.

Jookie is planning at some point to release the design for Cosmo, so this could be adapted for internal mounting. But of course this is probably going to be all a long way away as I have still yet to finish the motherboard design, which I just do not have time for at the moment :(
