Re: At long lost, I've found you!

You see the red discs floating around all over the place though, it's like everyone that bought these via retail threw away the boxes or something. There's a red disc version? Why did you have to tell me that for? ....now ...

Re: For original xbox owners - ATTN -

No worries mate, I think it says in one of those forums links, something about this darn capacitor being more of a major issue the less you use the machine and, how you've stored it when not being used. Either way, the capacitor needs watching. 8)

Re: Next Generation 'M2 just not good enough'

That is an article from a Next Gen magazine. Would be interesting to see the original date attached to it. I remember reading it with a sinking feeling. By the time i had got my hands on an actual 3DO here in West OZ the system was already dead. :(

I use a plastic polish to clean up any scratched music or gaming discs i come across. Its an ABRO product i picked up from my local hardware store used to restore perspex on headlights of cars. Works alright. After i clean it all back i'll wipe it over with isopropyl alcohol.
