Are there any good dreamcast emulators that play retail games?

Chankast is all you need :)

I can't download the chankast emulator from this site. It brings up a weird page.

It doesn't happen with me. Are you using Firefox?

I got it to download. how do I load a game once I get the bios file. Do I need anything else?

Chankast, BIOS, game. That's all you need. Try it first, then ask again ;)

When I load the emulator it brings up the dreamcast main menu but can't read my games?

when you get the it you need to burn it with daemon tools

Daemon tools doesn't burn. You can mount it to a virtual drive with D-Tools and then Chankast will see it as a real CD.

How do I do that? I've never used an emulator that doesn't use roms.

just as he said download daemon tools. then you have to download a program called alchohal 120%. this program makes the virtual image of your disk. and then you mount it with daemon tools which is your virtual cd drive. then when your in chankast you just select the drive created by daemon tools and run the game.

daemon tools

alcohol 120

Did you set the correct drive letter for the virtual drive in the Chankast options?

Looks to me an IOCTL / ASPI problem. This thread (http://forums.emulator-zone.com/showthread.php?t=5023) might help you
