Yeah I got mine a month ago now and it still doesn't show up on DHL, I'm not to worried about that, from looking at the Terra Onion forum this is the case with a lot of people, then it just suddenly becomes active. If I don't see some movement this week though I'm going to be extremely pissed off, I pre ordered in the first week of July.

Once I got my tracking number it took around two weeks before any information showed up online (where the package was, ect) just to let you guys know. I received my package without issue so I wouldn't be too concerned yet if I was you.

Zero units have gone missing so far. TO is shipping them in the order of purchase, but they cannot tell the government the order to process them. To provide a real world example, I had order number 6 of the JagSD. Mine went missing for a week with no tracking updates or movements from the time it was supposed to leave the UK. In the meantime most other purchasers of the original 80 received theirs. All of a sudden the tracking updated and it was delivered the next day.

Was it Saints fault that it went missing for a week? Should he have told the postal services to deliver in the order of purchase? Lets be serious.

MY LIFE IN GAMING put a video out about the MegaSD
https://youtu.be/5dagh9m8l1M

Don't own one, but pretty cool how you can Embed CD Music into a Cartridge with it.
Hoping someone does a new version of Sortie, Transparent Obstacle and Adventures of Iron from Gauntlet IV.

I see some folks are having trouble with the tracking but eventually got their package.

I'm in the same boat my tracking number for DHL ain't working. I'll remain optimistic the pack is still on the way.

I got a tracking number on August 11th, it wasn't showing up on the DHL website until last Thursday September 5th and it was delivered yesterday.

I would say the customs clearance out of Andorra is slow like has been stated in this thread and once DHL has it you will get your package pretty quickly.

Mine just turned up without warning on Monday while I was at work, luckily my wife was in to take delivery. £56 customs fees which is ludicrous, but I'm past worrying about it now, I've got it and it looks good quality though I've not had a chance to test it yet, going to try and do that tonight.

Last time I import anything from abroad for a while though, it is pretty expensive, I'm purposely avoiding looking at the Analogue site to see what new delights are coming out lol

Mine is on track for delivery later today.

Is there a recommended SD card size / model that fits the library and minimizes any access noise? Ideally one that I can grab from Amazon Prime. :)

I think my set was around 80 GB, the whole md/sms/32x library is less than 4g as well, so a 128 will cover everything and have some room. I mean I guess unless you have like each region of a game or something... then probably need bigger.

I played it safe and picked up a 256 gb Sandisk pro from Amazon, but to be honest that was overkill - I've put on all games from all regions of the Sega CD and Mega drive libraries, as well as everything for SMS on there, and there's still a bunch of room.

Still not got round to testing the Mega SD, I need to alter the way I've put some multi disk games on the card, as I realise now from YouTube I've made a few mistakes when setting it up. I didn't feel like doing it last night, hard day at work. 3 day weekend after today though, so hopefully should get at least 1 full day of Sega CD goodness in :D

Question does the tracking number come only in the form of a link or are there also a set of numbers and letters?

Mine only came as a link, is that normal?

Yeah I believe I got a number, with a link (which never worked) I wouldn't worry, the process is slow but everyone seems to get it through in the end.

I must say I'm loving the Mega SD, got a full day with it over the weekend, finished a few the of old favourites including Starwars: Rebel Assault (OMG the controls, if it wasn't Starwars themed, I'd have jacked that one in) Lethal Enforcers 1 & 2, Who Shot Johnny Rock (I must say I only had the PC version back in the day, and the game is extremely blurry on the Sega CD, to the point of unplayable - it'll need patience) And the Terminator game which is excellent. I need to get into Snatcher at some point, that's a totally new game to me.

The system isn't great for SHMUPS sadly, only about 4 on there and I can't stand 2 of them, I used to love Robo Aleste back in the day, but I've kind of got lukewarm to it over the years, it's okay but its no MUSHA. Keio Flying Squadron is pretty good, but got to be in the mood for that one, not the biggest cute em' up fan.
