  1. I have been using Hardcore Gaming 101 Presents: The Famicom Disk System I have found the book to be very insightful and pretty well accurate as to rarity, but more important it tells you how much Japanese you will need to know to play the games, this helps in knowing if you are buying a game to add to the collection or something you can use. I was turned on to it by one of the guys on the Fb group: Famicom Disk System Collectors Group
  2. If you had the case for that setup I would be all over it.
  3. Order a Belt they are super cheap, but if you want to test before that with a 'rig' - clean off all the old belt from the brass wheel and the main plastic wheel and find a rubber band that is about the size, it will work for a bit. Its not a long term solutions but at least you can see it works and you will know its worth getting a belt for.
  4. It does I just read through the thread - the post all seem kinda old. I wonder if it was continued to be worked on, I would love to get a hold of one of those NES carts converted to a FDS RAM Adapter.
  5. No I dont think it does anything - without the Controller Pack(RAM Adapter) and then turning on the NES/Famicom. Then with no game installed you will see the load screen w/ Mario and Luigi
  6. The RAM pack is the controller, did you connect it all up to the Famicom/NES yet?
  7. There is a pretty good chance you are right, I have read that Nintendo serviced the units all the way up to the 2000's. But I am sure that most people had moved back to carts.
  8. I like the Microsoft Premium CP/M card if you are using a IIe and the PCPI Applicard both are well designed, I thin I am running 2.2 also but like most of the the other I rarely use it, it was/is a bit more of a curiosity and interesting add-on then really useful. If I was really doing word processing or spread sheet on my Apple then it would be useful.
  9. The one I bought from eBay as service and belt replaced had the silicon belt installed and they even included an extra in an envelope. I dont think any 30+ year old belt is going to survive. The fact that the machines themselves had survived this long is amazing as they were built cheap and simple.
  10. So a friend from the Florida RetroComputer Club designed up some game holders for the Famicom Disk System games. I am sending him a game for final test fitting - but after that if anyone is interested they will be available
  11. Some over on the Fb group link to this book on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Hardcore-Gaming-101-Presents-Complete/dp/1546928316 I bought it it was good and it does tell you about the game(s) and if you need to know Japanese to play them, its is available digitally and in print.
