    I have a dreamcast and maybe you have one lying around and not used. How cool would it be to have an ISO loader for DC like the Wii.

    Possible methods could include this :

    I'd personally be more interested in improvement on Dreamcast emulators. Possibly even one on the Wii (although I highly doubt that).

    I didn't even know the Dreamcast had USB ports by the way...

    DC plays copies with out any kind of softmod and i think 99% of games fit on CD-R

    also it has no USB Port, so how do you suppose we connect a hard drive?

    easier use the Utopia CD to boot games or just make SelfBoot games its easy man.

    Dreamcast on wii wouldn't perform well enough. We need homebrew on 360/PS3 >_>

    Does a (workable) dreamcast emulator actually exist on any platform?

    well the dreamcast has a whopping great serial interface on the back that could be used to transfer an iso held on a PC much like flatmii. - Dreamcast over VGA cable looks awsome and the mame emulators are full speed -

    probably at work
    Dreamcast is a pretty awesome system for homebrew. I'd go as far as to say that it started the homebrew scene. I love my DC, but I love my Wii even more because:
    Wii beats DC out at every point.
    DC can only run SNES games at about 20 fps WITHOUT sound.
    DC homebrew has to be written to a CD-r in the proper format to work at all.
    Some DC emulators requires the VMU for saving games and prefs, and VMUs aren't easy to find.


    Hey, I forgot who asked, but there are working DC emulators for PCs. Google Chankast and NullDC. Sadly, the Wii does not have the power to emulate the DC.

    Look at the PSX and (Hombrew) N64 Emulators.. If those barely run a dreamcast has no chance in hell.
    And I've tried NullDC for PC and that works good, Although I need to find Dreamcast ISOs (which I don't know why you'd need a USB Loader-esque thing when Dreamcast ISO's were so easy to burn.

    If there is one made, it would not perform well enough to be playable. The Xbox1, which is similar and power to the wii and easier to port emulators to, never got a Dreamcast emulator.

    Until more powerful consoles are made and a way to run homebrew on them is found, it is doubtful we'll get a full speed emulator for the dreamcast on any platform other than the PC.
