I thought that if you had a particular cartridge it stopped the motor?

Original 20-pin modchips are solderless just like the later 21-pin one's. The only thing to wire up is Power & GND which (I agree are better soldered) you can just stuff the ATX power connector. But alas they are no longer produced.

I did have a bucket load of dual-mode 20 & 21-pin mod chips at one time... dunno what happened to 'em. I'll keep my eye open for them.

You can solder 21-pin saturn mod chips into a 20-pin Saturn if that is what you meant?

21-pin modchips are now like dog-poo... everywhere.
