Family Computer Disk System (FDS)

- For the platform, see Famicom Disk System.
Family Computer Disk System, often called the Famicom Disk System, is peripheral device of the Famicom. Rather than use ROM cartridges, games are played off of disks which allow storing save games without the need of a battery. Games could be written to disks relatively easily, and back when the device was still popular, you could get a new game written to your disk at a kiosk for a low price. Although the device was quite popular in Japan, it was never released in the USA.
While the Family Computer Disk System isn't a game by itself, it does have a BIOS which features a couple jingles and a graphic demo of Mario and Luigi fighting over a light switch.
The device needed to be able to read from disks and flip floppies, a little bit of feedback was given to the players in the form of jingles. There is a brief boot up jingle, an even shorter loading jingle, and an error buzz (not recorded). The boot up jingle title comes from the official album, the other track name is unofficial.
