    Hi, All

    I am not sure this is the right thread or not, if yes then Thank God, if no then I am sorry

    I just can't play japanese ISOs/bin-cue. It get stuck to the SEGA first screen.

    I use Picodrive 1.51b.

    Anyone find any get around it or any solution?

    I am downloading ISO from isozone called Devastator

    Are you using a Japanese BIOS file, with the emulated Genesis set to Japanese?

    Sega CD has two stacking levels of region lock. Most games, and most BIOS versions, only work on the correct system.

    Yep, BIOS all set up. Emulated Genesis? Would you mind to guide a noob, brother Lumstar?

    Check the region cartridge games are using.
    With real hardware, in the unlikely event you attach a Sega CD addon that's the wrong region for your Genesis, then the BIOS should return an error message.

    Of course I can't speak for how every emulator works.
