Hi,

Every time I burn a game and try to play on Dreamcast, it appears as a music cd. Am I doing something wrong or possibly missing a step? I burn though imgburn and it appears as successful when finished. Any help and insight is greatly appreciated. I've been through many CD-R 's and would like to properly burn some games so I can play on Dreamcast. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

You need to post a log showing the program burning and verifying the image/disc correctly and without error.

Beyond that, if it doesn't work in your playback device, maybe it's the playback device that's at fault?
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!

I would expect you can't just copy Dreamcast game CD's and expect them to work without some kind of mod chip or bypass method.  You do have something like that, right?

I've verified that my console is able to play burned discs. I was able to burn a few games with no problem, but wanted to burn Evil Dead but unable to get it to burn successfully. I've followed the same steps but nothing appears when I go to insert disc in console and nothing is found. You mentioned a mod chip? How can I obtain one?

If your console can play burned games, it doesn't need one.  Is it used?  If so, then it already came modded, as I doubt Sega would release a system where you could just copy game discs.  Although I do believe the Dreamcast came out before CD-R technology was developed.  So, maybe it can read CD-R's, although by the same reasoning, if it was developed before CD-R's, it probably couldn't read them.  Although the PS2 came out before recordable discs were widely spread and it will play DVD-R movies and CD-R audio discs.  Not game discs, though.

 

 

As for where you'd get a mod chip, good luck in getting one now.  Given its age, I doubt you could find any Dreamcast mod hardware anymore.  Unfortunately, even if they still made them, I don't know where you'd get them.  Plus, you'd have to find someone still knowledgeable working inside one to install it for you.

Thanks for the info! I purchased mine new towards the end of the Dreamcast demise. It's funny, I copied Virtua Tennis, Shenmue and Tomb Raider 4 but trying to copy Evil Dead and unable to copy with imgburn. Sometimes it will copy but when I insert disc into Dreamcast, it only recognizes it as either a file format or cd disc. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be great!
