SH-1 also does some data reformatting, basically working more as a CPU driven via commands than a normal CD-ROM reader. Check commands 0x64 / 0x66 for an example (and yes, we still don't emulate Sword & Sorcery and Riglord Saga 2 because I'm more or less confused about what exactly the copy sector command is supposed to do).

And yes, this also means that you can effectively use the internal RAM in SH-1 for a temp storage.

Question, I have a few Saturn related roms which are in DIP42 and SOP44 packages. The latter are possibly all NEC upD23c16000 chips (only half of the chips are marked as such).

What hardware could I use to dump those? Sending the chips to somewhere else is not an option.

I'm looking at either the Willem GQ-4X or a TOP3000...

I think Guru uses his BP Micro for those, or possibly a TopMax.

A TOP3000 would suffice for the DIP42 ROMs, assuming they can be dumped as 27C800, 27C160 or 27C322. The GQ-4X would need a DIP42 adaptor.

As for the SOP44 stuff, maybe, if you can find an adaptor. Good luck smile

In case it helps, I have a Top3000, so if you don't mind sending the chips I can dump them for you.

I also have some Tsop adapters, I'll take a look tonight and tell you.

Sending the chips to dump is not an option, but thanks for the offer.

My choice is down to the Wellon VP-390 and the Top3000 at the moment. I'm leaning towards the latter; it gets a lot of good reputation and it's cheaper so I can get an extra adapter for it.

edit: The Wellon seems to support way more devices though... might be a better option in the long run. I plan on programming roms with this as well, any maybe PICs and 16v8s.
edit2: But the Wellon is also too expensive with all the necessary adapters taken into the cost.
