Re: HDD recommendations

If you pay close attention to the manual, you'll see they use a Crucial SSD. That's the route I went with my Dreamcast install + added an SD card extension so I can update firmware and sideload new games without removing the case.

Re: News of '' mode'' shipments

I think I only ordered it less then a month ago, but this gives me time to do my own iso's from my own collection. I'm sure it will be worth the wait. You mean cue - bin it the preferred format also iso are not fully supported at this time unless you add a cue file https://forums.terraonion.com/vie...

Re: News of '' mode'' shipments

Hello, have the June orders been processed? (my order is from June 28, 2020) thank you to you. Just need informations for wait. Ordered mine in June as well. It'll probably be a week or two - there are a lot of roadblocks that DHL and customs has thrown up that is causing some delays. DHL is forcin...

Okay, I just got my confirmation e-mail that my order's shippment is being processed.
Might be (up to) a few more weeks, but at least I know it's coming now.

Hooray! And all that.
You probably won't see it until late September. There is a lot of delay on this one.

Re: MODE Dreamcast: Intermittent skipping/distorted CDDA audio

Update: I recapped my Dreamcast PSU (over half were leaking), but saw no changes to the CDDA on the 7200RPM Hitachi. Am inclined to suspect it's not a power delivery issue. It might be the way the disc reads the data? I just find it odd that a 5400RPM delivers more consistent performance than a 720...

Re: MODE -No valid storage found

I cannot stress enough - even with a Saturn or Dreamcast that "work normally" - your power supplies are probably in need of a recap. These system are 20-25 years old and there is no way in hell those PSUs are outputting stable current unless they were hardly used and even then, caps can leak from age.

Re: MODE Dreamcast: Intermittent skipping/distorted CDDA audio

Tried loading the same games from a SD Card w/ and w/o HDD attached and had no issues on Normal Read Speed and Seek Time On. Seems to be a HDD polling issue. This afternoon I tried a 250GB 5400RPM Seagate Momentus 5400.6 drive and it has no CDDA issues even with the most aggressive read settings. O...

Re: Removing 12v regulator on Dreamcast PSU

I will say i was having some weirdness on my DC last night during my install stream with my PSU that had the 12v regulator pulled. Dropped a non-pulled on and it worked better, I was having issues not reading the SD card.. and hard drive. I had just tested the MODE and installed it into a Saturn be...
