UPDATE 9/29/2010

(note) To play backup games on your deramcast it MUST be Made Befor Oct. 2000

OK so i started getting some more Dreamcast games as i wanted to get some really good ones =P BUT Padus DiscJuggler has updated and i did not have the super old version any more =( So i came across some things in the Newer version.

-For Games Under 700mbs set your settings as this


-For Games Over 700mbs set settings as this


Now I can't tell you that the settings you see here will work with EVERY game as i have come across a few games that no matter what i place the settings at they just will NOT WORK...  It could be just bad rips or something but i just gave up on them LOL

For all Other Info that you may need Please read bellow
--------------------------------------
When Downloading Games Make sure to Get .cdi

OK i am makeing this cuz i lost a good 15 CDs trying to get (Backup/copyed) DreamCast games runing on my DreamCast

and i don't want you to do the same...

Frist you Need a Program called (Padus DiscJuggler) this program is For Bruning your .cdi

Ok in DiscJuggler go to Tools > Options  click on pre-Mastering Tab Where it says Data CD type  Pick Mode 1
click Ok (make sure to write/verify)


Things you Must DO!!!!

set writeing speed to 4x  (Note) 8x works But is buggy with 8x you may need to power Off and back on DC to get Disk working

If Game name is  like this  E-MVSCAP.CDI  You Must Lower case it to  e-mvscap.cdi  (lost 2CDs cuz that s**t)
+ if game is spaced apart like  ( DOA 2 + Power stone 2.cdi )   ReadName it to doa2powerstone2.cdi
or somethen like d2p2.cdi   Try not to have space's or any ("+_-.,/*&#@) signs in the name this could cose CD Not to Load


if you download a game and it is Over 700Mb  don't Have a Cow  you can fit it on a 700MB CD
(The Dummy Data on the .cdi makes it look Bigger then it is)


If you Are Downloading your Games and Burning to CD  Most rips are SelfBoot  (As in you don't need a BootCD)


Make sure to power DC off then put Copyed CD in DC then close Door and power ON


(NOTE) if DiscJuggler says  CD may have errors on it try to fix ? Say NO

Ok, I've followed this tut and it works perfectly, so I would like to thank you for that. However, I have recently downloaded some games that are NOT in cdi format, they come with two files mdf and mds. I am going to assume that since it is not in cdi format, it is most likely not selfboot. How would I go about burning these files?

try and use a virtual drive and see if you can re-rip them to a .cdi format. not to sure if it will work, but its worth a shot.

Actually, I think its more of a need to make it self boot or something.

Could someone right a tutorial to cover this?

The older the better. If you don't have love for the old-school games then you have no idea what gaming was/is all about Grin

So, brother was browsing through Sega-hub.org and found out that you can get a boot-converter to convert the files to .cdi (I think) and make them bootable.

Anyone have or know of where to get one?
