I gave the arcade worker a print copy of the solution yesterday and he tried it while making a new card and. it didn't work. The card he took out didn't work. what happened?


I already lost my FT Spirit and 500k RX8.


During the inspection and it gets stuck. Even if you take the card thats being written on, won't the next card get stuck? I had gotten 5 copys of invalid rx7's and rx8's. Machine works fine when you don't buy or inspect cards. Ugh. i need someone to explain it to me.



Question: I might go to the mall and check the cardreader. Does it help if i take the stack of cards and move some of the ones on the top?

I noticed a small red light next on one of the card slots. Does that mean lack of ink?

that red light means when the card reader is out of cards and needs to be restocked

From what I know, V3 cards dont run out of ink. The cards are heat-activated.

Probably far far too late to this thread for it to be worth a damn, but some info for anyone still using idas1-3 machines in the wild:-

1- The key that opens initial d card readers is a standard sega arcade cabinet key (the same for all locks on all sega cabs everywhere, only coin box keys are unique). You can source these keys on eBay or from places like riverservice in japan.

2- So long as the machine reads your card data ok, any jam is a recoverable problem, just don't turn off the machine. Clear the jam, make sure the mechanism is clean, make sure the card dispenser has cards and reseat them etc.

3- The card readers don't use ink, they have a thermal printer inside (it literally burns the print onto the card).

Just have to post and say that I am eternally grateful that there is a solution to my worst fear!
Myself and a few friends are new to the game and have heard of the dreaded card inhalation problem apparent on virtually all the cabinets. With this information I will not live in fear of losing any of the data I have collected now!
