Identification & Background ¶ 

The Sega CD I, A.K.A. The Mega CD I (in Japan) was the original Sega CD unit. It features a front-loading CD tray and attachment slot which allowed connection to the Genesis console, giving it CD-readability. Released in 1991, it was sold in both U.S. and Japanese markets.

The first version of the Mega-CD sits underneath the Mega Drive console and loads CDs via a motorized tray. A second version places a top-loading CD-ROM drive to the right of the console, and is intended primarily for use with the redesigned Sega Mega Drive 2. Both versions of the Mega-CD are compatible with the initial two versions of the Mega Drive console, but not with the Mega Drive 3 or Genesis 3.
