    Havn't done it many years and I missed some gems. I found a couple they don't run on 64bit operating system.

    The first one don't know how to use. the exe just opens then closes. The second link the BINHACK doesn't work. It says in administrator mode that it can't be found and open open normaly is gives me THIS APP CAN"T RUN ON THIS PC message. The Cdirip did something. It made 2 .bin files and 2 .cue. Is that that it? If so which one do I choose to rip.
    And I tried them in windows xp S3
    Thanks

    I had a installer like the one on with a BINHACK but it also had a BINHACK32 which worked now the problem is the b2b_game.bat capability mode doesn't work with .bat. this is annoying I gotta find my old computer unless.

    I have a external samsung blue ray burner and a PIONEER dvd burner. Which one is better. I do have a old lite on burner from the early 2000s in my old computer.

    dvd burner normally better when overburning to discs with 80min or 99min cd-r's.

    Back in the day all i used was yamaha or pioneer burners, during my dreamcast pirate days.

    Most DC games should be on emupardise.me

    Of course if you can figure out self-booting, why not just boot up the utophia disc and swap it, does not take too much extra time.

    Yes some games were multi-disc.

    Sadly, i miss my dreamcast i had everything for it including the vga adapter, keyboard, high-speed ethernet adapter, modem, etc.

    yeah discs are of course region free, its the consoles or games that are not, but there is patches available for that also to unlock region of game data before you burn the image.

    Personally, if was able to get another dreamcast down here in this tropical country somehow, somewhere, i would try to find this device:

    And just load everything from SDCards instead of discs.
