**IMPORTANT** Only suitable for VA1 motherboard Dreamcast's.
There are many guides on the net about installation and how to check which Dreamcast model you have, please check before purchase. Typically VA1 units should have a 1 in a circle as seen on the image below.
There are three known Dreamcast variants:
- VA0 – early production
- VA1 – ~99% of all consoles
- VA2.1 – late production
NOTE: VA0 and VA2.1 are NOT compatible with GDEMU. While it can be installed inside a VA0 model and may appear to work, it is not safe and will eventually result in damage to the device and/or console itself. VA2.1 models changed the optical drive system and there is no possibility to fit the GDEMU in these.
