    That's ridiculous.

    To do that you need to scalp the guts out of a CED player and wire them into an LP table, then mod the needle with a red laser.

    I don't know why you're all so thrilled about this. After all, I've been playing Saturn discs on my Genesis for quite a while now...

    That's cool and all, but I play my Dreamcast games on a modded NES toploader.

    Stay tuned guys, I'm about to post my schematic to convert a ColecoVision for Edison Cylinder playback... It will blow your bits right outta the stylus groove! Unfortunately, the GameBoy/Waffle iron project is on indefinite hold...

    on a semi related note, was there a reason for the cart slot other than for the memory cart? did they plan on making saturn carts? if not, why no backwards compatibility?

    I'm pretty sure that can actually be done, somehow.

    It's obviously there to instigate consumers to mod their Saturns into Genesis-compatible consoles. What else would it be for?!?

    The idea was that you could play 32X games. It was supposed to fit in with the whole genesis/32X/neptune paradigm. Sega realized how stupid of an idea that was and killed it. IIRC there were a few carts released in Japan, although it may have been cart+CD.

    Switch that to a blue laser, and you could play Blu-Ray discs! Cheaper than a PS3 :P

    yea so I THINK I got the hint that its slighty hard to do this mod, so I have a new question;

    If I took a GameBoy Printer and wired it up to an EyeToy and rigged that to take still photographs, could I make an animated flipbook of myself trying to put Genesis games in the Saturn memory card slot? I want to make that my new DP animated avatar

    The external link port on the GameBoy is a serial port but it is NOT compatible with any known serial format. Direct control of the output pins and reading of the input pins also is not possible on this port because of the design.

    Then again there is this: http://www.devrs.com/gb/hardware.php
