(PC-E or NeoGeo CD) + CD-R = ??? Will they play?

Postby madbuzzin » Sun Oct 22, 2017 7:16 pm

I haven’t been able to find a clear answer on this... I have a Mac so I use open emu. I have downloaded a bunch of WORKING neogeo cd images. If I were to burn these images to a standard cd-r, will a 2nd gen neo (top loading) cd console be able to read and play cd-r’s?

Same thing can be said with the PC engine, I have a bunch of WORKING cd images for the PC engine.. if I were to burn these images to a cd-r will a PC engine read them?

Are these early cd consoles restricted to region codes and whatnot? Are they capable of running game images off of cd-r’s. I am seriously considering getting both of these consoles only if they read cd-r’s.

I am NOT seriously considering collecting for these systems.. for obvious reasons, like having money for food and water instead.

From what I can read, and what I remember, both consoles can play burned games fine. I've just read that they both use "mixed mode" disks so I don't know if there's a trick to burning them - but they CAN be burned ;)

Always fancied the Neo Geo myself, but they're a little pricey 8-)

95% of Neo Geo CD games will run fine on a top-loader, however there are a handful of games that need to be patched. I can't remember all the games that had copy protection but Samurai Spirits 3 is one of them.
