"Keeps giving me errors" is too unspecific.
If there are write errors (or read errors after seemingly successful writing) you should try to find out what is not the problem; it is my favorite method: Process of elimination.

Possible causes:
* Bad batch of CD-R -- Try CD-R from another batch/manufacturer
* Bad writer -- Try another writer
* Maybe bad image(s) -- Write some simple data files as data project to a CD to see if this works

To safe money and not cause plastic waste, I suggest doing tests on the computer with a CD-RW (though the Dreamcast will most likely not be able to read them).

Good luck!

Alright I miraculously found another writer and used it.
It worked!
If you want to know my errors, here they are in a nutshell
Createfile unsuccessful gliberish gliberish
Failed to write in sectors 317-350
Disk drive missing?
But once I tried another drive it worked, thanks for the advice!

could it possible be related to the special disc of the dreamcast: wiki
this format can't be burned by most burners, original gd-roms are not really easy to get.
burning roms is described earlier by @alexander1970 i thought.

After burning a disc imgburn verifies it, during the verification it said some errors were located on sector 600 to 700, the disc (on which is Skies of Arcadia disc 1) runs perfect so far, but do you think it would cause problems in the future?
