Do you think the dreamcast will accept a pirated ISO game burned on a standerd dvd disk?
i dont think the dreamcast can read dvds
Nope Dreamcast never ran DVD-R they did run normal size and those 99min CDR though but finding a good deal on those is a tough one.
Do they have to be 99min? Can I use 700mbs CD-R?
yes they can use 700mb 80minute disks
most Dreamcast stuff I downloaded in the past came as .CDI image format which can be burned with Imgburn or Diskjuggler
ALL are CD format none are DVD!
Ok, i did this years back, so it's a little foggy, but all DC isos burn to CDs. Also, if you download one that says it needs a boot disk, google a program called bin2boot. It'll change the .bin that requires a boot disk to a self booting dreamcast backup.
Hope that helps
ok I found some spare CD-Rs in my basement. one last thing, what dreamcast games do you recomend iam going to try soul caliber, and phantasy star. is there a wave racer like game?
Dead or Alive
Blue Stinger is worth at least checking out.
theres a WIKI here on dreamcast games......
Shenmue II is definitely worth a look along with stuff like World Series Baseball 2K2 and Resident Evil 2,
Resident Evil 3 Nemesis & Resident Evil Code: Veronica and Jet Set Radio
oh and Fur Fighters was a cool game too!
all great games
ok thanks for the help i think ill try some of those games i here power stone is good also
do i need utopia boot disk? what do i do with it
Ok I got an error message on my dreamcast saying Please insert a game disc even tho I put in the disc.
Iam using Memorex CD-R Recordable 52x 700MB 800min
The program I am using is DiscJuggler. I selected the .cdi file and used these settings:
Mode: Mode 2
Add post-gap to 3rd party images
What do you think went wrong?
Can someone give me the correct settings or help please?
OK CAN SOMEONE PLEAE HELP U GUYS DONT UNDERSTAND I AM USING DISC JUGGER I AM USING THESE SETTINGS:
I BURNED THE CDI IMAGE TO MY CD-R DISC AND IT COMES UP AS AN AUDIO DISC ON MY DREAMCAST HOW DO I FIX IT SO IT IS A PROPER GAME DISC?
I TRIED UTOPIA BOOT DISK IT COMES UP AS A MUSIC DISC ALSO
Didn't some late model Dreamcasts have some sort of anti-piracy "fix" done by Sega? Is it possible the system you're using won't run backups at all?
Have you run other backups on this system before?
Have you tried the backups you just burned on another system?
Nearly all the backup dreamcast games, were selfboot. You can also use alcohol 120% to burn the images, but select raw mode. If using discjuggler, always remember to select NO if it asks you to fix the image. The only dreamcasts that wouldn't play copies are some of the special edition ones from Japan.
are you guys retarded do you even know what i am asking?
EVERYTIME I BURN A CDI IMAGE TO MY DISC IT COMES UP AS AN AUDIO DISK ON MY DREAMCAST AND JUST PLAYS A SONG. I WANT THIS TO BE A GAME DISC.
i have a usa dreamcast i dont remember what year i bought it but it says copyright 2000 on the box.
Yes calling people retarded will get you the help you want.
i am just fusterated can someone please just stop reading my previous posts and read the most recent one and give me the answer i am looking for!!!!
I have this problem too. As far as I can tell, it has to do with the Dreamcast itself, because I got mine in like 2006 and over half of the games I burn don't work, but some do. Sonic Shuffle worked for example (but don't burn it it sucks) and the NesterDC Disk worked, as well as a SNES emulator I found, and a memory card manager, but everything else I have tried doesn't work. Also, make sure it is the correct region, I tried Puyo Puyo 3 times only to realize later that the DC is region-locked.
Maybe if you got higher quality CD-Rs? I was using some crappy Memorex ones, and TDK would probably be better...
Anyway try a different ISO for now, maybe it will work, maybe it won't.
Sorry, this is all of the help I can provide.
Oh, also avoid double and triple posting. If you fall into the status of a fracking n00b then you will never get the help you want. Patience is the greatest tool here.
So there is no way it will work? I may try Sonic Shuffle just to see it work but what ever now iam sad cause i was planning on downloading a bunch of dreamcast games over winter break causei got no friends andi am board
