thanks for the answer aldair but i dont understand what you mean. (maybe its the language barrier). Pin 13 is properly soldered to the pcb and has good connection to the Mobo. Testet every pin with the multimeter.

I really dont know exactly what you mean, sorry ^^

It has presets for using the correct iso loader version for most games and reaches like 98% compatibility.
Also games load very fast from IDE, which benefits games such as Soldier of Fortune (which I almost finished playing from my CF card).

I played Soldier of Fortune on the serial sd card without problems, I just didn't finish the game because it is very repetitive.

large wires on the sata adapter have problems working on the Dreamcast.

Yep, same for my CF reader.
I have the pcb with IDE port which you can solder on the bottom of the GD-drive.
I noticed that if I use a 80-wire IDE cable to my CF reader it would work great.
But when I would cut up a 40-wire IDE cable to solder directly to the CF reader (which is now built into the case), the wires need to be really short or else I get all kinds of loading and freezing errors.
Also make sure you use proper wires for ground, preferably thicker stranded wires.

I use this PCB which is directly soldered to the Motherboard. so i have no wires at all.
