Turbografx compatibility

Is this system compatible with the Turbografx-16, the north american console? I'm having trouble finding this information on the Terraonion website

Officially, no. We don't list it as a supported system.

However, it will work just fine but the SSDS3 will be a snug fit on the back of the TG16. If you find it a little tight, you can back out the screws on the bottom of the SSDS3 half a turn or so.

OK great. Thanks.

Now it just needs stock so I can order one. :)

To add once you get one, make sure to align the pins with the connector Super SD system 3 carefully and do not force it on. Otherwise, you risk bending a pin. This is true for the Japanese systems too, but more so for the Turbografx with that snug fit.

As stated above, the connector will probably not line up properly for a clean fit unless you loosen up the SSS3 screws first (a LOT).
You can tighten up the screws at the front of the case once you're properly inserted, but torqueing down the rear screws will probably prevent you from inserting or removing the SD card (at least, it does on my system).
