Hey all. I've just moved and I'm slimming down my collection. I found this old CDX that I bought years ago in a second hand store. It has some scratches. It includes an aftermarket power supply and an aftermarket composite video cable. I just tested it today and it plays cartridges just fine, I tested it with an Everdrive. Unfortunately it doesn't play discs. I didn't have any original Sega CD games so I burned one to test it and it wouldn't boot. I used an emulator on my PC and the CDR played just fine. This seems to be a pretty common problem with the CDX, it probably needs a replacement laser. The part number is SF-C93AQ. People have had luck changing it out.
*UPDATE I just played Sewer Shark and Rebel Assault. The CD drive mysteriously started working again.*
Oh and the previous owner trimmed the cartridge slot to allow Megadrive games. Not the prettiest job.
It's kinda hard to say what it's worth. People on Ebay want a million dollars for them. I'm thinking $200 plus shipping. If you think it's high, make me an offer.
(I've got a ton of feedback on Ebay, PM me and I'll send you the Ebay username if you want.)
