The Sega System 24 is an arcade board released by Sega in March 1998. Originally, games came on floppy disk, and later games shipped with a matching security chip to prevent piracy. In 1992, Sega abandoned the floppy disk format and shipped games on ROM boards.

Early revisions of the board use the Sega System 16 Pinout, while later builds use JAMMA pinout. System 24 requires a medium resolution (24KHz) monitor to play.

Backing up Disks

To backup a disk, hold the service button down, and then switch on the machine. It will then prompt you in how to back it up.[1]
