Burning

Post#1 » Sat Dec 21, 2019 5:20 pm

I need help burning and I dont quite understand what's happening with my dreamcast. Although I am aware that newer dreamcasts wont play burned backups but mine is Feb. 2000 NTSC 1. Also, my problem seems to be games specific.

Ex: I burned TDC Final(contains, Marvel vs Capcom 2, Street Fighter 2, Capcom vs SNK 2 and Streetfigher 3) and Marvel vs Capcom 2 will not work. so I tried burning Marvel vs Capcom 2 from "replayers" and still it didnt work. So I found an older cdi file, the accurate mix, and my own mix, burned all three and none of them work. Its almost as if my dreamcast isnt even trying to read them.

I pretty much use this exact method to burn https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doD0JQpIgUk . I set my speed to lowest possible (10x).

Games I've gotten to work:
Dead or Alive 2
Giga Wing 2
Marvel vs Capcom
Power Stone 2
Spawn
Star Wars Jedi Power Battles

Games that didnt work:
Cannon Spike
Giga Wing
Heavy Metal
King of Fighters 99
Mortal Kombat Gold
Marvel vs Capcom 2
Openbor
Power Stone
Rival Schools
Street Fighter Alpha 3
Swprd of the Berserk

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Alcohol 120 works best on my PC. But where you get the files makes a difference also. Burn speed never seemed to make a difference in my dreamcast ether. But computers can be so different from one to the next.

Worst case scenario. You could have someone one here burn you a game you like. I have did that once. I couldn't get monoco online to work so I asked around and got someone to burn a working copy for me.

How exactly does overburn work in the imgburn program?
Nvm, I figured it out.

All of my CDI games work in nulldc

The lowest I can burn is 16x and I got an error:

The burn speed has never made a difference for me.
