which one would you take? model one or model two?

Both are the same really, but model 2 is more reliable.  Model 1 has a more compatible BIOS though.

epic pic! it's almost scary how far ahead SEGA was with gaming in terms of the past! it's also, in a good way, scary how much farther ahead they'd be if they didn't stop making consoles. Miss my genesis...well all i really played was the Sonic series but i always wanted the CD addon for it but i remember, while being 6 years old, it being expensive or somethin. Good days for gaming though.

Sorry to bombard you with questions but, my model 1 sega cd doesn't read the disc. It will spin the disc for a moment then go back as if no disc were inserted. You wouldn't happen to know what the problem would be?

Does it actually say No Disc on screen? Press Start? I need to know what it says on-screen..

The laser is likely dead, but you may need to get an aerosol can and shoot some air under the lens. Dust and hair can get under there and cause it not to work also..

The system will turn on fine and will say press reset to open tray. I will put a cd in then press start. The system will spin the disc for a moment and stop. The cd system acts as if I had just opened and closed it without putting in a disc. It doesn't say "No Disc" though it doesn't even say checking disc.

Then either the laser is dead or dust is under the lens assembly.

And no I can't walk you through, I only sprayed air in it, not remove the assembly.. And you can still buy replacements but once again I can't walk you through, I've never done it before.

I recently acquired a model one Sega CD minus any cords. You wouldn't happen to know which cords are compatible with the model 1 Sega CD?

blackevilweredragon Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2010
All you need is the power cable, and a model 1 Genesis power cord will work..

Thanks! I wouldn't want to ruin my cd by using the wrong power cord.

Did you have to insert prongs into your genesis?

Also you wouldn't happen to know where to buy 32x cables?
Reply
:iconblackevilweredragon:
blackevilweredragon Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2010
For the 32X? Nah, didn't bother, works fine.

No, I don't know where to get the cables, mine just came with it.

:iconsomeotherguy2:
someotherguy2 Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2010
Oh well, what do the prongs do? My 32x came with everything but the AV cord and the model 1 adapter.

:iconblackevilweredragon:
blackevilweredragon Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2010
The prongs are just to satisfy the FCC. It does help with RF shielding, but it honestly doesn't matter, it works fine without it.

You can try hunting eBay for it. Makes sure the AV cable is for a 32X/Gen2/CDX. They all use the same AV cable.. Since you have a model 1, you'll want a mono AV cable. (You can go to radioshack though and get a headphone TRS to RCA adapter, and plug the headphone jack from your Genesis to the TV, that headphone jack will contain ALL sounds..)

eBay may also have the Model 1 adapter, but you will still need the passthrough cable to connect to that adapter.

Actually I did check ebay and they were trying to sell the cables for around 25 bucks each! My genesis and 32X combined didn't cost that much!

Thanks for the info though.

Sadly that price seems about right.. These cables are rare.

Now, I can make them, but it costs some money for the parts.

Odd that the cables are rare but the console easy to come by. I might be interested in the ones you make depending on the quality.

blackevilweredragon Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2010
I only make the upmost quality on things and cables.. But I don't really make things for other people, because then I have to find the parts to make them..

This is the original Sega CD. The second model was on the side. The third model was a portable CD player with SCD and Genesis capabilities.

Bah, DA screws up the link.

Go to youtube, type in "Sega 32X", and load the "32X Tech demo". Very amazing indeed, too bad programmers lacked motivation to actually do this.

Yup! Late release and only small amount of good titles was a very bad decision from SEGA.

:iconblackevilweredragon:
blackevilweredragon Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2007
Yea. If the 32X had stayed longer, with the CD (and most people actually owning all three systems), you had a good "low end" Saturn essentially. SH2's, CD, super VDPs, you had it, but slower bus speeds, that's about it.

Have you played Vectorman? That game looked better than many games on the Sega 32X!
Reply
:iconblackevilweredragon:
blackevilweredragon Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2007
Played a little of it. But my favorite game of all is Snatcher on the CD.

I do like Knuckles Chaotix, but it plays better on Genny 2 models. (VDP was "fixed" in some ways, as the model 1 VDP had some slow down issues).

The 32X and CD had some good titles.

CD had Snatcher, and 32X had Darxide (though not released here in America, I do play it via my region mod).

Besides, the 32X had something coming, but it ended too soon. 32X was a powerful machine: [link]=pOWZbydnlZE
