put DC into a 5 cd carusel cd player?

Post by robotecha5 » Wed Feb 15, 2006 3:26 pm

i would like to try and put the DC hardware into a carusel 5 cd player. i Thought this would be cool. Not only could i have 5 games in at once without opening a disc drawer it would also make playing games with a rom disc easier for something like nester. Any sugestions thanks in advance

Well I guess it would depend on the size/shape of the player. If its in a stereo or something you might have enough room to scatter the DC inards about, otherwise you'll need to make your own case.

Im not sure how you would get the GD rom assembly to move in order to allosw the cds to move into position.

Wish I could give you some more advice about this, but it seems like an interesting project. Hell I have an old carousel laying around, I might run a few trials myself.

Good luck!

extend the ribbon cables to the gdrom board seperating the laser assembly from the board of the gdrom. then just put it on the rails of the stereo's cd player.
