Followed this exact guide earlier.

After converting to chd they don't even show up on retroarch at all. If I leave them as bin/cue they show up but won't load. Very frustrating.
We'll need to poll the audience, then.

This is the only other thing I found:

To get SEGA CD games to run you do need to drop the BIOS files into your RetroArch system folder. I couldn't get any SEGA CD games to run at first, then remembered about the BIOS files and now I have no problem playing SEGA CD games. I did not convert them to another format either, just left them as bin files.

Usually I have no problems setting stuff like this up but it seems like it's one thing after another doing this

finally got one Sega cd game going, hopefully from now on things go smoothly, tried one game for a minute and not sure what buttons are what compared to the normal controller. Was playing an FMV game where I had to hit right on the dpad and it wasn't working but whatever. Glad to see how much work is being done on this PS Classic. Sony must be happy there's a good reason to buy the console now.

Sega CD was a victim of three things in it's time:
1) Lack of Developers
2) Being Sandwiched between Console Releases
3) Un-optimized Games (Load times weren't great) [see (1)]

Otherwise, it's a great little console library, not unlike Sega Dreamcast.

I read the majority of this, but a few questions I still have:

Do you need to physically modify the inside/board of the PSC, or can it strictly be done using an USB?

Does Autobleem allow for different platform games or do you need to add retoarch to the Autobleem folder?

USB. Though Power Mod is a simple and convenient fix for additional USB power.

RetroArch.

i have an SD adapter and was wondering if this would work with PSC? i really know nothing about this kind of stuff and figure this is the 1st step https://m.newegg.ca/product/N82E1682024 ... c40a240610 if i use a micro sd i won't have to worry about power, right (hardware hack, powered USB hub, etc)? i figure i might as well get the 128 GB over the 64 GB so i can (hopefully) add Sega Genesis platform too.

It should work, microSD cards are low power consumption.

I kind of wish this was still in Computers and Electronics. This forum is quite niche and low traffic... but it seems like the right sub-forum so I respect the decision.

In any case, I will keep the updates rolling.

I’m using a 64gb micro sd card with an old USB adapter I found lying around and it works fine.

Big news!

BleemSync 1.1 has been released and apparently has rear OTG support, among other changes: https://modmyclassic.com/bleemsync/

https://old.reddit.com/r/classicmods/co ... lassiccom/
BleemSync 1.1 provides an updated payload along with a custom kernel. Together these enable OTG Support for your console. Once installed properly you can plug your OTG adapter into the rear of the console and connect your usb drive directly to the OTG adapter freeing up the front controller ports and bypassing the power issues of the console.






You should now be able to use an OTG adapter and pretty much any USB drive now! While leaving controller 2 available & no need for any hardware power mods!

Great forum!! I have a question:

I am using a 5V 1.0 amp power adapter I found lying around since that is the suggested stats to use of the PSC. BUT now for OTG I just noticed it says this on the PSC reddit "With OTG, just like doing the power mod, we highly recommend using a 2 amp power supply at a minimum. If you use a 500 mAh power supply you will run into problems."

What do you guys use? Are you finding or buying a new one?

I found this on amazon
USB Wall Charger
