CD32 cdrom and joystick question

Hi I am planning to buy CD32 for my amiga museum, CD32 will be with original package (box manual etc) I have question:

CD32 joystick ports are the same as amiga joystick ports (9pin connector)

its possible to burn image to CD and play it on cd32 ? (I have some images of cd32 games)

its possible to replace cd32 cdrom with another eg from PC (if cdroms will fails or will be broken)

I know that cd32 uses 4fire joystick, do someone have scheme how are signals going to cd32 joysticks ports.


Thank you for answers

I had it on my A1200 HD some time ago, I´m looking through my backups when I got some spare time

There are quite some spare CD32 CDRom Drives offered on EBay and various Amiga dealers around the world may also have some in stock ....

So I hope parts to cdrom like spinning motor, or laser can be exchanged with normal cdrom, I will try to examine that, and if something goes bad, I will destroy my pc and insert parts to cd32 ;-)
