So anyways I finally decided to fire up the ol’ Sega peripheral when the sucka finally decided it was going to give up the ghost.
That said, I don’t believe that the system is beyond help, and I’ve been searching them thar Intrawebs looking for so juicy info that might alleviate my ignorance. Sadly, the search has turned up a mostly dry well.
Worse still, what little I did manage to dig up suggests that I gut my SegaCD 1 like an amateur surgeon just to find out what went wrong.
So before I start playing Operation on my Sega Mega CD 1 I was wondering if anyone here had the faintest inkling as to what my problem is and how to fix it? The symptoms include being able to work perfectly fine up to a point (usually for about five minutes) before it completely locks up. At this point nothing happens unless I hit the reset button where it goes back to a screen showing a planet set against a starry background and nothing resumes happening. I can’t even get the game out of the system in this state, however, if I wait a few hours it resumes normal function like nothing happened for a few minutes before the whole process repeats itself.
Right now I’ve managed to get the game that I was playing at the moment out but this has grounded my gaming progress to a halt. Any help would be…helpful.
