I can't burn Utopia, any tips?

Post#1 » Thu Dec 21, 2017 1:09 pm

Hey guys!
I have a problem with burning utopia.
I am using DiscJugler, trying to burn Utopia boot cd to CD-R with lowest speed.
I've made 2 tries - first one I just selected my utopia v2 .cdi disc and let it burn - nothing. When I put it into Dreamcast it just does nothing.
Second time I changed settings to look like so:

Now console reads it for like 10 minutes and then.... music player.....

I have a PAL version of Dreamcast, I think. The one with blue logo on :D European one, yeah?
I know I could use Utopia, when I was 4 (now I am 20) I used to play Dreamcast with it. I clearly remember the reindeer! :D

Do you have any comprehensive guide to this soooooo simple (not for me!) task?
Also, could you give me a link to your battle tested Utopia disc? I've heard there are some fake ones like 1.5.

I am not into wasting more poor CDs :(

First thing you should do is never use Utopia, it was used by the dc scene in the early 2000's for the poorly made early iso's of Dreamcast games. Its never recommended for anything now as it disables vga and runs any game it accepts fairly buggy

DC-IE Dreamcast Import Enabler

In the rare situation that the import does not have the VGA flag , use Codebreaker it's double bypass region+output

Yea, utopia is the old way of booting games. They now have selfbooting games that you just pop in and play. isozone might be a good place to look. Hope this helped.
