    Default Can't get a Sega CD Model 1 to read discs correctly

    I'm not sure if I'm missing something but I've replaced lasers in plenty of other consoles, Saturns, PS2 Slims, even the X'Eye but for some reason I cannot get a Model 1 Sega CD to work right. I got one that freezes on the Sonic Sega screen & won't play any games EXCEPT Sega Classics but I know it isn't working right with that because it stutters. I've tried several replacement lasers, adjusting the pots, & replacing the belt just to be sure. Nothing.

    Default Original Discs

    Are you using burned discs? My Sega CD Gen1 doesn't play burned discs that well but work great with original media.
