OK So I was 3 for 3 ,

the 4th disc somehow got interrupted while burning , So only 1 failure because of the actual burn process :)

NHL 2K stopped during the burning but the NHL2K2 burned all the way.

Well I am happy now lol.

I use the same disks that dont work for you and they work for me .. Might have a burner problem not a dreamcast problem is the burner usb ? is it internal etc.. not all burners burn cdi or dreamcast isos well at all..

I use cheap walmart disks no problem.. then my burner is from 2006 can burn just about anything

It's a LAPTOP CD Burner. I'm wondering if the burner itself is starting to wear down.

The burned code breakers disc I had , that was INKJET Cover printed did not work either I saved that from the 1st time I had dreamcast.
Maybe a bad spine of cdrs this was werid.


Oh well , if it means I need to have a whole new cast of burned discs on MAXWELL , So be it.

oh wtf now , the new discs I did are being weird now too.

Here is something I did catch , The plug I was given is 125V ,

The dreamcast says it's 100v 50/60hz 22w

Could an over supply of power being screwing up the way it reads and powers on.

ALSO , I do know the Motherboard battery no longer keeps the date and year etc.

Is any of this an influence ?

OK I did more of that laser screw turning again ,

this time I did not put the 4 screws in so i can take the shell off anytime

and also I did not tuck the wires back under the clips,

Possible they could be kinked or something ?

The Plug is rated for up-to 125V, The Dreamcast needs 100V, all good!

I don't like how often you adjust the GD-ROM laser screw.

IIRC its only half a tiny turn in either direction. If you spun it too far it could add to much voltage and burn out.

Can you still play real or burnt Music CDs?

Yup its normal again since last night. I also did not put the screws back in , I seen other people say somehow that screws up with the lid weight or placement or something.

I do not know , this is all weird.
