This is the message you get if you boot your Mega Drive into American or Japanese mode with a Mega-CD attached:

Now, I found this in my Mega-CD II box. It doesn't seem to fit anywhere on either the Mega-CD or my Mega Drive II. Four hooks poke outwards from a square piece of metal. They look like they need to hook onto something. Help?

that little plate is for the model 1 extender cable.

Cable? It's a plastic thingy.

That plate hooks up a plastic thing that extends the part of the mega cd that holds the Mega Drive. It provides support for the original Mega Drive.

I've never had a single CD-R give me trouble. The Sega CD 1 LOVES illegally pirated CDs. The more illegal, the better! I have close to 100 illegally pirated Sega CD-Rs.

Yeah, my Model 1 loves CD-R's too... as I don't own any legit games, and what is legit... Burning Fists: Force Shit is on a CD-R, I think..

A diesel car may last longer longer than a gas car... speaking when it comes to what you use to fuel it up (bio diesel) and look how common they are in Europe.

Just ignore the Diesels sold in america in the 1980's... they where bad (not reliable, SLOW SLOW SLOW), are very, very rare today, and then! Hell, there's a Lincoln Continental w/ a BMW Diesel, actually sold by Ford from the factory. But finding one is rare, and the engine is slow as crap... I'd still love to own one, and swap another diesel engine in it. I've only seen 2 on ebay, ever.
