Default Help with burning dreamcast games..

sponsored links

 
okay, I use alchol 120%.. I dl the games cdi mdf or nrg they all work with alchol ( the format i mean), and everytime I burn a game, it shows up as audio on my dream cast and doesn't work. My friends tho, can burn same file, and it works for them, and it'll play on myne too. I've tryd burning at lowest speed, medium, and highest... none work...even self bootable games dont want to work...
I've tryd useing Utopeia it didn't work either, so got friend to make copy it worked, but it still didn't load any games (if they were non self bootable). I have a 12x Max CD-RW Drive.. I'm useing fujifiilm cds for it too. But my friends use fujifilm on theirs and it works fine... I'm stumped, no idea what to do...I've wasted about 70 cds out of 100 testing things...Someone help please..

Hmm, this is how I burn my discs and it always works. Also, some Mitsumi burners refuse to burn selfboot games so that may be it.
