    Dreamcast VGA Modified Dreamcast with Front SD Card Slot Released

    The last item of news was fascinating for the Dreamcast Homebrew community, but this is equally as awesome, the same Chinese site has for sale a Dreamcast Modded with VGA Video Output and an SD Card Slot in the front and runs a Custom Bios, this is also totally region free and Homebrew friendly, bloody hell i want one so badly.

    Heres the translation from the site:

    Perfect version of the DC bare metal headphone jack with a VGA S AV AV interface before the plug is easy on the cat the cat is now upgraded to a full pull out of the back also comes in the DCFront SD card interface DC can be put into the SD card to play games head to read the disk saves to send a particular SD card boot disk to play FC MD SFC N64 NEOCD MAME GBA emulator and some dials are perfect to save the machine is also runningIntegrated development of machine BIOS chip DC Genuine no guide to the region can be directly read this so do not ask what version of the host has no other color version is limited to the host, please contact the owner DIY

    Heres some pics







    Heres the modified Bios



    Now who wants one of these, any chinese folks who can tell us the price would be awesome.

    I have an answer!

    Apparently, they sell for 300Yuan or 350Yuan (depending on if you want the modded BIOS or not)

    $55 plus international shipping apparently:

    http://www.google.com/search?q=350Yuan+in+USD

    We have apparently crashed item.tabao.com I seriously do want one. International shipping will likely be brutal unless we get some group buy action going.

    BTW - yes, it shows me as a n00b. Not so much - more like idle-for-so-long-that-I-had-to-re-register. Sorry for that, but I've not had much time to spend on console hacking in like, oh...8 years. Just so happens I've had a project to move a dreamcast into my arcade cabinet sitting idle for years. This would motivate me to get it done.

    $55 plus shipping! Wow! I saw this when I was getting the pictures for my SD card video, but had no idea it would be this cheap!

    I seriously think this is the ultimate Dreamcast ever!

    Actually, I stopped. Although it was going to be ~$60, they say that international shipping will be "calculated upon arrival", and then I see this chart:


    Express Mail (3-6 working days)
    Weight(lb) Shipping Rates (U.S. dollar)
    1lb $31.16
    2lb $40.54
    3lb $48.42
    4lb $56.30
    5lb $64.18
    Every additional 1lb: $7.88, over 20lbs part: $7.00/lb (1lb=454g)

    * The price has included the fuel surcharge and declaration charges.
    * We will try to help you to avoid taxes.
    * Uses any of UPS, FedEx, DHL, TNT and EMS, decided by us.

    This REALLY needs a broadband adepter built in. They would be cheap to reproduce (cheaper then the used ones any way) It doesn't even look like it has the standard Dial up modem just a S-video out?

    Default I really, really want one of these

    Cellphone & Accessories 5% Off Consumer Electronics 8% Off Car Accessories 7% Off Computer & Networking 7% Off Cheap & Cool Gadgets 8% Off Personal Health Protection 10% Off Home Garden & Tools 10% Off Sports & Outdoors 10% Off Health & Beauty 10% Off Apparel & Jewelry 12% Off
    I've been working on trying to get a hard drive to work with my DC for a long time, but I never got anywhere. I gave up the project a few years ago, and now I'm seeing this for the first time.

    That price is ridiculously cheap and I WANT ONE NOWWWWW!!!

    The only problem is I'm having a REALLY hard time navigating that site. Could someone please help me?

    And has anyone on here purchased and received one yet? If so, how'd it go?

    1.) Does it work well and does the GD-ROM still operate normally?

    2.) Do ISOs that need to be loaded rapidly on the fly (like Crazy Taxi) run smoothly from the SD Card? I'd imagine they would load even faster than they did from disc, but it doesn't hurt to be certain.

    3.) Will it play PAL AND NTSC games?

    4.) Can you change the system language to English?

    5.) Does the SD card slot read SDHC cards as well? I simply can't fathom a Dreamcast with 32gb of read/write flash storage. If not, what's the max size card you can use with it?


    If the answer to all of those questions is "yes" then I will be ordering one as soon as I know.

    And pleeeaaaase help me navigate that site. Thank you VERY much in advance!
