So much so that the Saturn had a VCD expansion card. I just wonder why it wasn't in there by default.

Cool. So was that like the ram expansion pack for the N64, which added more memory to the system?

The saturn had a cart slot, think genesis game size, behind the CD rom door were extra memory or a action replay could go. I think the VCD card went into a seperate slot on the back of unit.

On the bck there is a little panel where the cr2032 backup battery is located and it looks like there is a card slot there as well.

What's up with those cr2032 batteries? I've had them last 10 years and some last less than 1 year.

seriously! the VMU would have been a cool invention if not for the short battery life. I've heard that the GameGear had similar battery-eating tendancies

I don't think they sell them anymore but, Dollar Tree used to sell these little LED flashlights.  They took two of the same batteries that the Dreamcast VMU took.  The catch was, the flashlight has a little trigger that you squeeze repeatedly and it recharges the batteries.  This could be a cheap method of keeping from going broke with buying new batteries.
