I'm in that situation right now. I have a game with a dead hard drive and it's on the wanted list.
I love the work that has been done by the teams that make up this whole endeavor! I repair a lot of arcade games for folks and having the hardware documented and all the checksums for ROMs available is a HUGE help.
Now, if I could just get Team Play to respond to an email inquiry about a replacement drive... Sigh.
