This short article is in need of work. You can help Sega Retro by adding to it.

The Pro CDX by Datel (not to be confused with the CDX, otherwise known as the Sega Multi-Mega) is an accessory for the Sega Mega-CD which removes region locking. Though several similar devices exist for the console, the Pro CDX is perhaps the most common.

The Pro CDX is a Sega Mega Drive cartridge which needs to be inserted into the system before booting from a CD. As such this limits the use of the CD BackUp RAM Cart, and is not compatible with Flux or Wonder Library.
