Default copy dreamcast games with CD-RW

sponsored links

Is there any way I can copy Dreamcast games onto a CD-R or CD-RW. When I try to do this in what I assume is the normal way the disc is not recognised by the Dreamcast Console?

are you talking about copying an original game? if so then you cant do a simple copy in a PC cdrw drive. refer to our FAQ's for a ton of information.

if you are talking about a backup copy, the in order to do it on a cdrw you need to tweak the laser to read cdrw, which is not recomended. and will burn out the laser prematurely.

Like Mitsu said, you have to tweak the laser pots to make it read cd-rw. Why do you want to do use RW anyway? If you just want to see if you like the game before you burn it to a cdr then it really isn't worth it at all.
