    Default Saturn and Dreamcast cd-r questions...

    Hi there... Im REALLY new to burning movies or games to dvd or cd-r. I won't ask where to find the games/bios/and files... I just need to know how to burn them!! a link to an faq or tutorial would be great.. I have a couple of questions, any help would be greatly appreciated...

    1. When burning a saturn or dreamcast game to cd, do i JUST burn the iso/bin/mdf and ONLY the image file to the cd, or do i need some sort of player. Im just talking with games, not emu's or anything like that.

    2. are there any mods i need to do to the saturn or dreamcast to be able to play a cd-r on it??

    3. and I know this doesn't belong here but i thought i might as well ask while im on the topic.. MOVIES!! can i burn an .avi to a dvd like a data disc and have it play on a regular dvd player?? yes or no.

    4. if no, what should i burn, image file? JUST image file? iso/bin???


    I know this is a lot to ask in one post and i might be testing some patience with asking about movies, but i just have so many questions and so little time... Any help is REALLY appreciated... thank you...

    1.Burn the image
    2.Yes.Dreamcast needs a boot disk (unless you have selfboot discs),dunno about Saturn though.
    3.You can burn .avi files as long as your DVD player reads DivX/Xvid.
    If not only DVD movies play.
    4.What .iso ? DVD ? ...Yes.

    I hate half of you...especially the dumb ones.
    Some of you are on my blacklist and so shall be any asswife that tries to prove he's worth anything.
    If this post somewhat offends your silly arse,then I proved my point.
    You have been warned so don't cry to your momma about it later on...or any mods for that matter.

    My Dreamcast doesn't need a bootdisk to play CD-R's, as long as they're self-boots
    And 9almost all Dreamcasts can play backups without modification.

    AFAIK yes
    I am happy to see one for myself, since everytime I can download something either homebrew or emulation related, I don't do it when I have to make it self-booting myself...
    Yep, I'm a lazy bastard

    There are self-boot tutorials everywhere on the net.
    Just Google "how to make a Dreamcast selfboot disk".

    I think some self-boot tutorials were post here before, but feel free to do it anyway
