Basically, there are three 'levels' of CD-Rom cards. They hold the boot code for CD games and offer different amounts of extra memory for the CD titles... like the RAM expansion carts for Saturn.

The first version were CD-Rom System Cards. These were made for the add-on CD drives for the PC Engine / TG-16 and only support games with a 'CD-Rom System' logo on the package. Some type of CD-Rom HuCard is required to boot CD games from an add-on drive.

The second round were Super CD Cards. These had more memory on the HuCard and were required to play 'Super CD' games. Duo-R or Turbo Duo consoles have the equivalent of a Super CD Card built-in, add-on CD drives needed a HuCard upgrade. This is backwards compatible with almost all of the 'CD-Rom System' games.

The last round were Arcade Cards. These had even more memory and supported the Arcade Card exclusive or Arcade Card enhanced games that I c/p'ed. It's a HuCard upgrade for any of the NEC consoles. They're backwards compatible with all 'Super CD' and almost all 'CD-Rom System' games.

This kind of belongs in the Auction Watch thread but since we have been talking about the CD add on here and how rare they are I thought I would post it in this thread.
This is complete with the Turbografx system and some games but should still give an idea of how much they go for.

Good score! All good games too. Looks like the Turbografx club is getting pretty big around here   :D

Same, I thought I was doing things wrong when my car kept breaking. Then I looked it up online and found out this was pretty normal! It's just not a particularly great game.

I'm going to put yet another plug for Good Deal Games (since I'm friends with Michael, who own the site).  You should check out his TurboGrafx 16 section of the store and the homebrew games he sells there:  Good Deal Games.

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

He said something else is coming in a few weeks but I don't know if it is also on CD.

Well this ended last night at $260 or around 170 pounds. Too much for me!
