Thread: Do I possibly have disc rot, or a dying CD drive lens?

  1. I just clean discs with soapy water and the tip of my finger, and I dry them by shaking off the excess water and wiping them down with kimwipes.
    It never caused any noticeable scratches.

    SSJN is right about Chinese lasers, I had to buy three Duo lasers before I got one that worked. But for $20 a pop I can deal.

    No worries here, just a feeling old moment. I think Generation Z (or whatever name they will get) is more advanced for their age than Generation X was.

    I think our perception is so much different than then, it is hard to say. There are what, millions on youtube now? Who is to say that there are just as many advanced children as before, but with the power of the internet we are able to look at more of them at one time?

  6. Not on Saturn, though. Get the new port.

  7. Vampire Chronicle for Matching Service would be my pick.

  8. It's averaging about $50 on ebay. I might check out that option, but I'm pretty sure that I can get a Japanese Saturn for the same price.

    I don't think that using water is a good idea. If the varnish layer has any spot of weakness, you could end up with moisture getting to the metal layer. I'd much rather use a cleaning fluid meant for cleaning CDs, along with a microfiber cloth.

    I messed around with the laser pot last week, but I didn't want to push it too far. I could get about 90% of the titles to load, but some would take 2 or 3 tries. I decided to find a working Model 1 Saturn and went with a North American model, since 95% of my library is NA games.

    I got this decent looking Model 1 Saturn from a (Ebay) Game Store in Yakima Washington. It has a few cosmetic scratches and dings, but it looked a lot better than most of the Model 2 units that were up for sale.





    I put my old faithful launch North American Saturn back into its box. You had a good run buddy!





    The cartridge port in this unit is much tighter than the one in my launch Saturn. I had used the original PAR in my launch console, which I would never recommend a Saturn owner to use, and it has always had cartridge seating issues because of that. I hooked up the new (used) Saturn, plugged in the PAR 4M+1, and dropped in Vampire Savior. It's alive! It's ALIVE!
