Default Armada with mdf and mds file.

sponsored links

I have been looking all over the net to get a .iso file of armada. Unfortunately, i have not been able to find it. (This game is awesome... im dumbfounded why its so hard to find)

However, i did download an Armada torrent that unzipped to a .mdf and .mds file. I read up on what needs to be done to convert it. Alcohol 120% only will convert the load the .mdf file (300 mb file) into the program. I am able to mount this on a virtual drive and then convert it to an ISO.

Unfortunately, i can't convert the other file, the .mds. Its only 1kb big, but im assuming the dreamcast NEEDS this file. Without it, the dreamcast thinks the disk is a music cd with 1 track.

I am in desperate need, and i have tried searching for the last 4 hours. Any help?

Talking .mdf and .mds

The files .mdf and .mds have to do with disc creation not the dreamcast.

I have burned a successful disc using these formats.

like stated above alcohol 120% is a good choice.

Default ???

I downloaded the same file, 300meg ARMADA give or take and burning it with alcohol 120% doesn't work, my dreamcast just thinks its a music cd with one track, like mentioned above. I've had no problem with CDI files, so am i missing somthing here?

You can use magiciso to convert mds/mdf to iso file.
