Is anyone selling the USB stick adapters for 3DO currently?

Recommended Posts

First off, always click on "How to Buy," because his price fluctuates with the USD/EUR conversion. For instance, the FZ-1 is now $155 not $165.

 

I recently ordered one, here's what I did with help from Leo at Digital Press Video Games of Springfield, NJ!

 

1. Leo did a full cap replacement on the system as it was having issues, and that fixed them.

 

2. I decided to have him do the "240P" mod for clearer video (vs. native 480i), which was accomplished by soldering a few wires to the VDP video chip (ports 52/55) and a rocker switch that we installed on the side. We also had to remove resistor 166.

3. I decided NOT to cut a hole in the original CD drive bezel, as those are impossible to find. Instead, I installed the USB device as instructed for "internal" and then ran a USB 2.0 port extension cable (EBAY LINK) and installed that on the side as well. I didn't care about covering up VCD access as I'm never using that add-on. I kept the bezel in place with some clear tape.

How long does it usually take him to respond? I’ve placed the order via his webpage, I believe he needs to send me a PayPal invoice?

You don't need to set up any software.

It's not my store, but he's got social media accounts, no web site.  Leo owns the Springfield, NJ, location, not Clifton, FWIW.  I'd suggest, if you're looking to mod something and cannot yourself (like me), to find perhaps a store in your area.

Thanks. I finally got hold of them but they only accept local jobs.
