I’m very sure this is a rare item and I’m happy that I still have it; even if it’s been made obsolete by emulators and flash carts. If it wasn’t for this disk drive I would have missed out on some very good games back in the day. When I bought this unit I got it with about 100 games on 3.25″ diskette. It’s really hard to remember but I think I paid about $100 for the Mega Disk with the 100 games. It was a very exciting day and it’s why I was able to discover games like Warsong, Lightening Force and Snow Bros. I tested it just today and it’s still working very well.
Mega Disk is an after market (and unlicensed) 3.25″ floppy drive that attaches to your Sega Genesis and will load ROMs from diskette to your Genesis. The load time is longer than a cartridge but once the game was loaded the gameplay was identical to authentic carts.
