Systems I Do Not Work On[/u]
The following are systems that I do not work on, mainly due to their convoluted design, fragility, or my lack of expertise on certain consoles.

3DO
3DS
DS/DS Lite/DSi/DSi XL
Famicom Disk System
GameCube
LaserActive PACs
Nomad
PS2
PS3
Sega CDX

TurboExpress
TurboGrafx-CD/PC Engine CD
Vectrex
Virtual Boy
Wii
Wondermega
Xbox
Xbox 360

Payment Info
I almost always take PayPal for payment but I can take other forms of payment on request, including money orders and Google Wallet. Of course, I'm always open to trades so if you've got something I want and you want a mod performed, let's work something out!

Shipping Info
Return shipping cost will be through USPS Parcel Post with Delivery Confirmation. If you desire USPS Priority Mail, UPS or FedEx, let me know and I will calculate shipping for you based on your ZIP code (or country) and weight. Please make sure your system or systems are well-packed to avoid shipping damage. Turnaround time is around 1-4 weeks, depending on my personal schedule.

He just said it's not available right now. I'm guessing it's likely due to lack of parts.

Yep, the person who makes them (viletim on SMS Power) ran out and I actually wound up buying his last one just for that SMS. He'll have more come next month, at least that's what he told me.

so my question got deleted, do you know if you mod the region on the X'eye would that fix the issue where it sees the cd as a game but it will only play it as a music cd ive got 2 that does this, they will play all music and cd+g games.   Also where is the fuse in the Sega CD systems?

The region switch I do for the X'Eye only affects the cart portion, not CD games. Even so, a region mod wouldn't fix your problem; it sounds more like a misadjusted laser to me. The fuse is located at F301 on the motherboard of both Sega CD models, it looks like a resistor standing on end. As for the SMS, S-video is like night and day compared to composite, since the SMS has lousy composite video to begin with. Details are more defined and colors don't bleed together like they do in composite. Same goes for the model 1 Genesis and especially the Neo Geo AES, which usually use the same video encoder chip.

Here's a TurboDuo I did for a customer on AtariAge, this one has RGB and a cap replacement. The region switch was added by a previous modder.

Here's a C64 I did for a customer on Famicom World! The JiffyDOS installation you see on the screen was performed by a previous modder.
