So, I'm assuming you are doing this to correct a connection problem between the Sega CD and Genesis. Now that it's disassembled are you slightly bending the connections for a better fit, or cleaning the connectors to remove over 20 years of tarnish build up, or replacing all together with a new manufactured unit? By the way, I have my Sega CD and Genesis still to this day. They are in their original box with all the manuals and other pamphlets that they came with. I should see if Sherlock Holmes is still boring as it was when I first played it back in '91. Better yet play Night Trap and think about how controversial this game was at the time and even was pulled from store shelves, because of the controversy surrounding the girls outfits worn in the game.
