This can be used to replace the CD/DVD drive on Dance Dance Revolution arcade cabinet System 573. This device acts as a DVD optical drive so you can use ISO images of CD or DVDs such as the Extreme Pro SuperDisk. It has no moving parts like the standard CD/DVD drives so you get faster loading times and more reliability.

The IDE simulator can effectively replace CD and DVD-ROM drives in legacy computer hardware such as PCs and arcade PCBs by allowing you to use an SD card or a USB flash drive containing ISO or BIN/CUE files. With no moving parts, less power consumption than an optical drive and a small profile, it can be installed in place within the device enclosures without any impact to performance.
