Yea, I have one of these.  This copier (really player becasue it doesn't copy)  requires special disks.  Owners of these would buy special pirate disks from a game shop.  These disks have a different format then the regular fds.  Most of the time, FDS collectors buy pirate disks from Ebay thinking, they are regular FDS disks. Then they try and play them on a regular FDS.  It doesn't work. 

I came across one these units in a bulk purchase.  My Venus unit came with 100 Disks.  Be careful powering the Venus.  You can blow the unit away with the wrong polarity. 

Does your unit work?

I dunno.. Sort of, I think.. I've had many problems with the FDS I got it with. When I finally got the FDS to work, and started trying out the TGD6, a cable from the "3206-write-protection-disabling-mod" went loose due to bad soldering, and I've been too lazy to solder it back in place. I'm about to loose my patience on the damn FDS-unit. Anyway, I got to try the TGD a few times, and all I got was a black screen AFTER the FDS-copyright screen, in other words where the game's title screen should've been. I've tried with different disks. Some original Nintendo disks, some bootlegged ones that worked without the use of the TGD, and some bootlegs that has not worked either with or without the TGD plugged in. I guess the TGD wouldn't go that far if it was blown away by previous owners. You have any clues on what might be wrong with it?

Difficult to say because of the stability of the FDS.  Usually, if you get a black screen after the title screen, it means that the disk may have not been read properly.  In the past, I have found that many problems were dur to the FDS rather than the TGD.  The TGD requires the use of proprietary disk formats specific to TGD. I am not surprised that a regular FDS doesn't work on the TGD.  It shouldn't. 

Again, if the FDS is working properly without the TGD then you can eliminate the FDS as a source of the problem.  In order to properly test the TGD, then you need to to load a TGD specific disk into the TGD unit.  If that doesn't work, then it could be one of 2 things:  The disk itself or the TGD.

It sounds like you don't have baseline for testing.  In other words, a Good TGD disk and a Good TGD. 

I hope this helps.
