Here's a list of known issues with the current version of the simulator.
SD card slot is a little finnicky
If possible, use USB0. Performance testing has indicated that a USB drive in USB0 has performance exceeding that of the SD slot anyway, so this is the preferred storage port.
Device is much lower power than an optical drive
Certain power supplies may expect a larger load on 5V or 12V lines, and so fail to start up correctly. In this case, you may need to install a load resistor over one or both of the power lines in your machine. Please ensure to use a resistor with a sufficiently large power capacity.
The device doesn't currently support multiple IDE devices
Shouldn't be a problem for arcade games, but may be an issue if you're wanting to plug it into a PC. Hopefully this can be addressed in a future firmware update. As it is it will always simulate a “master” device.
