Ah good news. Could MAME benefit from this?

I had a feeling that was the case else I'd have likely found something about it in my searches. Thanks.

See this is where this one is different, it has no CD (at least not for normal operation) just a PCMCIA flash card. I'm not sure if the card is at fault or the onboard flash roms. I also have no idea if it came with a CD for initialization. I tried burning the CHD from MAME (after converting it using chdman) but the drive doesn't seem to like CD-Rs...
