Samsung DVD-N505 NUON Enhanced DVD Player

I finally received a NUON Enhanced DVD Player, the missing VLM link between Atari Jaguar CD and Microsoft Xbox 360.  It’s in very bad shape and came without a remote control, but it works like a charm and even plays games on DVD+/-R and homebrew games on CD-R.

These players are quite rare and show up only once or twice a year on eBay. The model I got is Samsung’s last European NUON DVD player, the DVD-N505 without controller ports. There are two hacks to add controller ports though. I’m going for the latter hack and will add mini-DIN connectors to the Logitech Gamepads soon.
