    If it gets enough support it will get a sticky.

    Well the next bit of news I guess is the new firmware we've been waiting on.

    50 year warranty! Thats insane! But it looks really good installed, so it probably won't cause too many problems. What is the price for one of these? I have trouble burning Dreamcast games with my stupid CD burner (s) and this looks like a great option to play JSGR and Shenmue on!

    yea david... he is a cool guy.... he is currently testing CDI support today.... if he doesnt update here but on FB ill be sure to share his findings....

    Would anyone be interested in High Quality Movies and TV shows to load on their 2TB hard drives to be played on their Dreamcast? (not From a emu or 3rd party player) I am going to test to see if i can get a CDI larger than 1.3GB to load on USB-GDrom. if it will i was thinking something like Vol. Or whole Seasons on 1 CDI or even Trilogy movies on 1 CDI MAX video quality. I have done this before but was limited to CD size... soo... Let me know if you are interested...

    Just updated, tried Sturmwind CDI (it's supposed to have some copy protection AFAIK) and GunLord, both load/play perfectly as far as I can tell.

    apparently this BETA firmware does not load GDI images, it's a test for CDI or something...
    MNEMO said he will put the new fw later TODAY on the website for all , so it's only a matter of time for all to get the complete version :)
