I just bought a front-loading sega cd. It powered up just fine so I was happy. However, it only plays audio cd's. If I put a sega cd game in, the access light blinks and I can hear it read the disc and the "press start button" message never comes up. Also, when it plays audio cd's the audio is very scratchy sounding when output both throught the genesis and the jacks on the back of the sega cd.
Does anyone have experience with these and have suggestions of where to begin looking for the problem?
