Important Fitting Information:
These are only suitable for VA1 motherboard Dreamcast's. These can be typically identified by the a ① in the product label (see our images for an example)
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's. While they 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.
