    I got this one last year at a thrift store for $10.00 or something. Is it the same thing?

    That's a better one, it's a Super Wild Card DX. Does it work?

    The value of these is all over the map, as it always has been. Now that there are cheap flashcarts there isn't much of a market for 10 year old disk based copiers. For instance I picked up my Multi Game Hunter (works on both the SNES / SFC and Genesis / Mega Drive) boxed for $5.00.

    Besides the color and label, they look closely the same. Have you been able to play Super Famicom games on it? What about backing up the games to disks?

    Also, found this interesting video on YouTube with the SWC in action:

    Okay, that's a Super WildCard DX2, which is yet another model.

    Damn, it seems Red #9 finally went bye bye for good, it was my favorite site for copier information. I believe you could rig up a ZIP drive or CD-ROM drive to the Super WildCard DX2, and it also carried the largest memory modules.

    That one on ebay is way, way overpriced. The one you want to look out for is the DX2.

    And even then I wouldn't drop more than $50.00 on it tops. The build quality of these just wasn't mean to last and I'm not talking about the disk drives.

    I've been wanting to sit down and write a big thing about my Multi Game Hunter, maybe I'll start on that today since I don't have much else going on in a bit.

    Yea, I picked up a parallel port zip drive (for free from a good friend!) just for my DX2 to check out how well it worked. It was neat and all, but the real money was just having it directly connected to the parallel port in the back of the PC and using Ucon64 to directly transfer games to and from it. Much faster and more convenient.

    I love my DX2, but with emulation as good as it is with emulators like bSNES and with the various limitations of the DX2 (have to make a quick mod to get it to work with SFX games, having to have passthrough carts for games with special chips, etc), it just doesn't see much in the way of use anymore. The ability to save a state (similar to that of the Pro Action Replay on the NES) was a fucking godsend.

    Nobody in their right mind would spend that much money on this. It's probably worth about $50 tops. There are better SNES copiers available.

    I used to pick these up back in the day (back when the SNES & Genesis game releasing "scene" was in its baby stages) from a shady guy at the port authority in the city. I had many of them. That SWC from that auction, a Genesis model that I remember had an external floppy and Ryu on the lid (I liked that one), and some others. I even had a special adapter to allow the SNES and copier to use a Genesis power adapter (or was it Genesis using a SNES?) to get that bit of extra power to stop it from "blinking" due to power draw on loading games. Heh...good ol' days.
