USB GDROM

Have you guys seen this yet? http://3do-renovation.ru/USB-GDROM_Controller.htm

It's a little pricey, but looks pretty awesome.

Nope, but that looks amazing. :shock:

I'm very much of the opinion that all of these "GDRom" replacement projects are in the best interest of the future of the Dreamcast, because there is a preset amount of hardware out there in the world in circulation, and the most shitty, error-prone portion of the Dreamcast is the GD-Rom drive, and obviously GD roms don't even exist anymore, so we would basically be fucked without a replacement...

Yeah, that's actually how I found it. The GD-ROM on my Dreamcast failed, and I was looking for a way to fix it. I'll probably get one of these at some point, but in the meantime I just got another Dreamcast for $50.
