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?
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.
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.
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.
