There's a mod board floating around on eBay that essentially allows you to run Dreamcast games from SD Card rather than GD-ROM. If I understand correctly, you simply remove the GD-ROM drive entirely and insert this board, attaching it to the ribbon cable that previously went to the drive. The hardware on the board does all the rest.
This is an attractive proposition for a number of reasons, but most of all the fact that the drives in these consoles are failing and the number of available replacements is dwindling with time. Dreamcast console prices have been steadily climbing over the past decade. Has anyone tried one of these mods and if so, was it successful? Any recommendations for particular vendors or manufacturers?
