Hi peeps!
I've finally got a 32x to shove in my Genesis.
Unfortunately it didn't come with shield plates.
Although it may be a hot topic about whether they are needed or just an FCC compliance thingy... i have AV interference so i'd like to start with these!

My main question... the 32x unit has metal parts on the cartridge slot.
Do these come in contact with the shield plates when you insert the 32x into the Genesis?

If I know this, I may be able to bush fix a something myself!

Failing that.... anyone got any spares?

Yes. I'm not sure if they also make contact with the Megadrive's RF shield, but I would assume the point was to try to create one contiguous shield.

Thanks for your answer.
I'm guessing the shield plates don't get in contact with anything in the Genesis itself as they don't go down far enough and there is also no metal parts in the cartridge slot area.
...time to see if I can make anything!
