FZ1-ODE Review – Drop-in Optical Disc Emulator for the 3DO!

Find one here: https://3do.dev/ (not an affiliate link) – The 3DO was relatively short-lived but had a great run in the mid 90s before the Playstation decimated their competitors. This new optical disc emulator (ODE) for the 3DO replaces the aging CD-ROM and allows booting games off of an SD card or USB stick. It dramatically speeds up load times and even makes gameplay smoother in certain situations!
