We also believe we can make DCIO much, much cheaper, and have better options versus the competitors out there already. We will also offer USB to play images, instead of just the SD Card. We also plan to have a much more elaborate and cleaner designed Menu System.
Just a quick info. I donated some money for DCIO project a few time ago. My question is: will I be in the beta program, no matter how much I donated? Or is there a minimum donation to partecipate to the beta program?

Thanks. :)
Doesn't matter how much you donate, you'll be in it.

We never received a Mega CD in the mail, so we never looked into it. We'll have to put our own research and development into it when we've finished mass production of PSIO and DCIO.

One thing at a time :P. Get the DCIO finished first and if there's enough interest when that project is done, go for the Mega CD IO :P. I think it would be a pretty cool project, especially considering how old the Mega/Sega CD is and the fact that most of the units by now are going to have failing laser assemblies of some sort. I'm sure somebody would be willing to donate a working unit to you guys for reverse engineering. But yes, one thing at a time :)

Does it matter whether or not it's a model 1 or model 2?

We'd like to have both on hand so we can design it for use with both.

I am VERY excited about a Sega CD optical drive emulator. Is there any progress on this idea?

Nope. Never received a Mega CD so prototype work on it never started.

D'OH! Wish I had one to send, but I do not. One issue you may have though is that the CD had tons of hardware revisions internally that people don't realize. I'm afraid the only sensible method would be something ilke the SSD3 from Terra Onion for PCE-CD, where a fully new add-on is developed that you would just plug into your MD/GEN and go. I just don't think it's feasible to install something inside an existing CD add-on.

Yeah, basically we'd re-create the Mega CD addon which plugs into the side of the Mega Drive and instead use solid state media instead of the CD-ROM's.
