    Nice score! :thumbup:

    Sounds like the filter cap in the power supply has blown, probably one of the first things to go in an old power supply. Solder a new one and its all good to go.

    I'd go as far as recapping the entire power supply while your at it but its up to you.

    I picked up a Mega CD 2 and Megadrive 1 Combination this evening. All up it cost me about $270 shipped from the Netherlands

    Anyway I already had a mint condition Megadrive 2 so I swapped out the Megadrive 1 for the Megadrive 2 (mainly so i fits into my display cabinet)

    The only issue now i have a bunch of left over parts and and a missing expansion port :(

    I have always wanted a Mega CD for my collection and think i got one at a great price

    You’re not going to use it?

    I'm not spending that sort of money to have it sit in a display case :)

    I really like the original Mega Drive 1 design, it fits into the flashy 90's design. The MD2 is much more basic in appearance, but it looks as it should be with that MegaCD next to it :) Can you run CD-R games off the drive?

    Yes. No copy protection on the MegaCD/SegaCD/Wondermega/etc.

    Damn... when I see that Mega CD combination, I almost regret that I've sold my Sega collection a few years ago. I also had a few of those Mega CD II's, but also a lot of Dreamcast, Saturn and Game Gear. The only part I've kept was everything of the Master System. And I still have my boxed Mega CD I (but no Mega Drive anymore ;-) ).
    Sega stuff is still easy to get here.
