ok, basicly i need something that will let me do 2 things on a genesis/mega drive

1) i don't like fiddleing with changing batteries in the carts so i need it to be able save in game like a save state (or something like that)

2) it needs to be able to play translated patched ROMs on my origional system

i think the magic drive plus can do these things but i know very little about these things. i do have a 100% working flash 64MB flash cart but my writer to flash new roms to the cart seems to be defective so if someone is willing to sell one of these (preferably with the parallel cable) i can do that to.
