Hi guys,

I have the XDP Browser on disk now but as I put the CD into my DC and press play it says please insert game disk. For some reason it recognises the disk as audio.

Hi guys,

I used ImageBurn and still come up with the same problem, I can definitely see the disk in the audio menu when I switch on my DC. Im using PAL DC, I burn the XDP browser onto a CD (700mb), could it be that it burns as an audio file? should I be using a dvd disc instead? What are the settings for ImageBurn so it burns as a correct file?
When I insert the burned disk into my pc and open the file, it comes up as a link to a tutorial page for XDP and nothing else.
Thank you everyone for your support and helping out. I just cant wait for the day to get pass this and go online to play Phantasy Star online.

I dont think dvd-r will work for you. Cd-r only. I personally have great luck burning games with alcohol 120%

They're uncommon but some Dreamcasts sold toward the end of the console's lifespan were altered by Sega to correct the security hole that allows content burned to a disc to run. Look on the bottom of the console, there should be a manufacture date and a number (0, 1 or 2) inside a small circle right by the date. Most revision 2 consoles will NOT run burned media so make sure that's not the problem you're having. If so, you're going to have to buy a new console or get a hold of a genuine Dreamcast web browser disc.

If the console itself isn't the problem, try using ImgBurn. An installer with Dreamcast-specific settings and instructions is here: http://www.dreamcastlive.net/downloads.html

Hi guys,
Im thinking that because I have a PAL DC that is why it will not play the XDP browser on the burned disk. Im thinking of trying out with dreamkey 3.0. I looked up on the net and not many people sell dreamkey browser, I found one for around $40AU which I think is quite expensive. Does any one know that if I do purchase the dreamkey browser that it will solve my problem to get online with my DC PAL?
Thanks

I use Dreamkey 3.0 on my PAL Dreamcast and it works a treat. It was the first disc I took online in fact. I've not tried XDP Browser though.
