The Fenrir is a new Optical Drive Emulator (ODE) for the Sega Saturn.

You can now replace the old CD-rom drive in your Sega Saturn with the Fenrir which, not only does it give you better loading times, but you can also store as many games as you want in the microSD.

It's very easy and quick to install by just removing the disc drive and replacing it with the Fenrir kit by plugging in 2 cables!

Features

  • Supports up to 2499 games per SD card!
  • IGR shortcut to return to the loader is here! Just press ABC+Start on your controller to return to the Loader! (Some games will return to their main menu instead. Pressing ABC+Start a second time will then work.)
  • DirectBoot! Fenrir can launch a game directly from the Loader Menu, without resetting the console or dropping back to the Bios!
  • Easily launch homebrew and games through a loader menu.
  • Plug and play installation with no soldering required.
  • Faster loading times as seek times are much faster on an SD card.
  • Supports all console regions (only for Model 1 (Oval Buttons) VA0, VA0.5 or VA1 consoles with a 20-pin drive).
  • Supports all microSD cards (and SD cards through an adapter) of any size.

  • ISO, CCD/IMG, CUE/ISO, CUE/BIN (single or multiple ISO or BIN files) supported.
  • Supports both FAT32 and exFAT sd card partitions
  • Easy to update firmware - just put the firmware file in your card's root directory and you're done!

Current Known Limitations

There is currently a single known limitation:

  • No ability to swap discs in game. Most multi-disc Saturn games do NOT require this, as you normally have to save your game and load from the next disc. There are however a few exceptions. Please check the compatibility list as the games that require this are just a handful. Support will arrive with a future update.

IMPORTANT NOTES ON MULTI-DISC GAMES:
Most multi-disc games in the Sega Saturn ask you to save your game before you continue your progress to the next disc. These games are FULLY PLAYABLE and such swapping is SUPPORTED by the Fenrir. You can boot back into Fenrir when you finish the first disc, load the second disc and continue your game.
Only a small fraction of games require in-game disc swapping. Fenrir does not have support for this functionality yet, but support will be added with a future firmware / loader update.
