Thumbs down My Dreamcast is one of those December 2000 ones.

What methods are there to play Dreamcast backups on those?

ETA: Actually, nevermind that Q. I dug through the topics here, and eventually I learned that Dec 2k consoles cannot read CDs at all. Bummer.

Anyway, I have a new Q. See, I bought my DC preowned at Electronics Boutique. I purchased the warranty along with it, so I can trade it in for another one anytime in the next 6 months, hopefully for one that was made earlier. I was wondering if anyone else has had experiences with buying DCs from EB, and if they could have older consoles.

You COULD play CD-R Backups. You just have to burn the "Self-Boot" games in data/data format instead of audio/data format...

I think I saw a "laser tweak" tutorial somewhere that allows the to play backups too.

I would not recommend that laser adjustment. It will shorten the lifespan of the lens.
