Ok, here's a tutorial that I've made on how to burn your dreamcast games..

How to burn .ccd files
A .ccd file contains information about the logical structure of the CD.It's a
ASCII text file and is used in conjunction with .IMG and .SUB files of the same rootname like .bin and .cue files.

You need a:
1.CloneCD program
2.Brain

Open CloneCD. And press the button Write from ImageFile. Browse after the .ccd file of the
game and press next. Choose the GameCd option and burn.



How to burn .cdi files
You need a:
1.DiscJuggler program
2.Brain

Open Discjuggler. Go in File and then New and press Burn Cd and DVD images.
Click on the CD and the papper image and browse for the .cdi file. After you have done that
go in the "Advanced" tab.
Change Mode to Mode1/DVD and TOC should be CD-ROM/DVD.
In the misc area chech the box RAW Write and Overburn CD.
Go back to "Source & Destination" tab and click start. And don't forget to insert the CD..
All .cdi files is often selfbootable so no need to use boot cd.



How to burn .bin and .cue files
You need a:
1.Cdrwin program
2.Brain

Open Cdrwin. Press the record disc option. Press the Load Quesheet and browse after the .cue
file of the game. The .que is a file that gives information where the real image
of the game is .bin.
Then press Record Disc.
You need the utopia boot loader disc to play games which is burned as .bin and .cue.
Don't ask where you can find it as it isn't allowed to ask here..



How to burn .mds files
You need a:
1.Alcohol120% program
2.Brain

Burn the .mds file with Alcohol120%.

After you have burned them insert the Utopia boot disc loader in the dreamcast. When it
says insert cd insert the burned cd. Likewise with chankast.

Emulate the image with Daemon Tools, then do a direct CD to CD copy with any decent CD burning program

yea but if i wanted to start a new topic about this, someone would tell me 'search before you start a new topic on tha same thing' or some like that.

anyway if i have a .mdf and a .mds file for a game, do i burn both of them to a cd or just one.... also (i know this is a stupid question) does dreamcast need a chip to play these games:huh:

That is only if you have a question, which is already answered...

I downloaded Marvel vs Capcom 2. The first post states that you burn the .mds which when opened with rar is only 2kb. But the other file that it contained is 742,654 kb and its an .mdf. Which should i use?

The .mds can be seen in relation to the .mdf as a .cue to a .bin.
Just open the .mds in Alcohol120% andit will automatically load the data from the .mdf.

hahaha.
Anyway this isn't an all spam post i have a question. What should the write method be for the game (im using Alcohol), would it be Raw Dao (i think i read that in another topic) or is that wrong.

Err, it's been awhile for me. I recall that alcohol has these preset modes on what type of disc your copying. It will let you select playstation, music general protection, and some other options. From what I remember, select the right one and it will configure what you need. It's important to get the right one to ensure your able to copy fine. If your having problems with protection, use anydvd2 (highly recommended) or 43dvd.

The options it gives me are: DAO/SAO, RAW SAO, RAW SAO+SUB, RAW DAO AND TAO. It doesn't give straight forward names like playstation or music.

Your confusing Alcohol 120% with CloneCD.

I burned it using Alcohol, (it was a mds/mdf file). I start up the boot disk and the deer starts spinning. When i put my cd in the deer begins to stop every 2 seconds while spinning. It eventually becomes silver, and the cd with the guys on it appears behind it. But it doesn't load, it just stays at that screen with the Utopia cd and the stopping and starting deer.

It doesn't matter.. Just find the appropriate burning application to burn your files.

Hi

I've tried burning some CDI images using the DiscJuggler settings in the first post, but when I put the disc in, the DC thinks its an audio cd. I've also tried using Alcohol 120% but then the disc doesn't get recognised at all.

Any help or suggestions in getting this to work would be appreciated.

Thanks

It worked for me for about 5 out of 6 cdis I tried. I'm too lazy to add more comfort, but I would definitely like to hear any ideas about how to increase the success ratio

Remember, to burn on the CD/DVD... you must set speed to the lowest speed for a better burnt.
