Question .NRG Dreamcast images wont work need help!

sponsored links

I have downloaded several games in the .nrg format but everytime I burn them they dont work, and I follow the instructions very closely using nero 6 ultra, burn in DAO,24x speed, blah blah blah.
I have burned several cdi's successfully, but the .nrg's give me hell; my question is: I have to make em' self bootable with bin2boot?

2. or use a boot disc?

3.or can they play in the Dreamcast by just burning the .nrg image?

You should not need to make them self-bootable or use a boot disk. One thing I ran into was that Nero 6 would not properly burn Dreamcast images for me, and I have read of other people having the same problem. I went back to Nero 5 and everything works fine. If you have a copy of Nero 5 available, give it a try.

if your burner supports it, burn DAO/96 at 12x speed.

if that dont work, use nero nero6 doesnt like dc images that much.

some say use TAO in nero6.

Default alchohol 120%

Well can I use alchohol 120% to burn the nero image? Because I have tried using nero but it doesnt has DAO/96 (Which I understand is essential when burning in 5.5 Nero) as a selection for some reason, only selection I have in the drop down menu is DAO and TAO, only nero 6 ultra has the DAO/96 selection (why? I dont know)

1. So can I burn the .nrg with alchohol 120% successfully?

2. If so what settings you guys recommend?

3. Can I burn the image with Nero with the just DAO at 4x and have a working Dreamcast game?

4.How to get the DAO/96 selection in the drop down menu for Nero Because it isnt there, but its there as a selection in Nero 6 ultra.

P.S. I have both Nero's installed on my pc at the same time, but the is installed on my second hard drive dont know if that would be the prolem.
