There is absolutely no difference between the nocd and the cd versions of the games. Just a one byte difference in the BIOS. The NoCD version is simply a version where instead of extracting the rom data from a CD and flashing it to the Flash ROMs on the board, the data is housed within ROMs contained within the cart (I believe) so no flashing of data has to occur. This is how it starts up immediately without any delays.

Featurewise, there's nothing different unless you have a different version date of the game data. (In which case the 6-digit date would differ).
