The Kingwon Super Computer VCD KW-SC2000 is a Video CD Player with an integrated Bung Doctor PC Junior.

It has a CD-ROM, Floppy Disk Drive, keyboard/mouse connector and 2 famicom joystick ports.

It can load Famicom games from CD!

It comes with the same operating system as the Dr PC Jr. Check out this video. At 17:04 they load the operating system from floppy disk and show a Basic demo:

The same Basic demo is also available on the Dr PC Jr!

Here is more information about the KW-SC2000:

It was sold in the late 90's. I would love to get my hands on this system.

Does anyone know where a foreigner can buy used chinese VCD Players Smile

Very interesting stuff! Thanks for the share!

I came across a couple of Famiclones, with mouse and keyboard or with built-in CRT and floppy drives but this looks much more advanced.

As I recall China was banning the import of game consoles at the time so manufacturers would "hide" these functionalities in common VCD players.
I doubt many of those survived but that would be fun to try out.

I agree, this is the most advanced Famiclone I've ever seen.

Do you know a Chinese plattform where people sell used hardware, something similar to Ebay?

You can try your luck at taobao, carousell or ruten.
These sites have local market places in Taiwan, HK, Singapore..
The problem is most won't deal with international buyers. Either you can use a proxy service or a proxy person is the best.
