Fred’s Tech Corner: 3DO USB Host Controller Installation and Setup

leave a comment »

Fred recently purchased the USB Host Controller by Mnemo to replace his 3DO’s CD-ROM drive with a USB reader to run games. This video demonstrates how to install, set up, and run games on an FZ-1 (tray loader). The FZ-1 is a solderless solution, for the FZ-10 you will need good soldering skills. Please see below for links mentioned in the video and for the FAQ, which I ask that you read before asking questions. This was not a “review copy” nor was it given for free, this was purchased by me at full price. I have no affiliation with Mnemo and receive no kickbacks from these links. Thanks for watching.
