Great Find, Laser nut myself too, See my Laser Disc Trivia signature link.

Curious also, found these links. DVD player looks like a Commercial one.
Mouse and RS232 connections. Dragons Lair laser players had that.

wow! lots of info thanks :mrgreen: commercial huh? nice. and now that i have a laserdic player time to collect movies. :mrgreen: what is black burst? how do you use it? :?

No idea on the black burst, usually stuff like that was to help improve contrast on very early SDTV flat panels with their shitty black levels and horrible motion blur. Basically to make all the TV's on the massive wall at Best Buy look better that they actually were at the time.

Here are some BNC (Those funky looking connectors on th back) to component cables so you can hook it up to a component enabled SDTV. From the looks of it and given it's age (2000) it seems not to have any form of progressive scan so it's best not to hook it up to any HDTV lest you enjoy vomit-vision.

Yeah, they are the carts that Nintendo send out to different stores for events for giving out Pokemon. Funny enough, that after the event the stores are supposed to send the carts back to Nintendo. You should go back and get that..

What were you on when you turned down a DS with a rare looking cartridge for 12 DOLLARS! Even if the DS didn't work, you could probably resell it for about that!

I would NEVER turn that down, even if it didn't have that cart in it! Especially since video games at Goodwill (or at least my local Goodwill) get bought when I try to come back and get it!
