OK I have a copy of utopia. Now I can get the NTSC games off amazon.
Am I able to download roms to play on the DC with utopia?

You also want to download ISO's. These typically boot up without needing the Utopia disc. Snesorama and DCISOzone are great places to get games. DCISOzone lets you know if the game will boot up without or not prior to your download.

Ive been playing Aerowings. It is awesome. I thought it would be impossible to have a better flying game than Pilotwings 64 but Aerowing comes really close
Aerowings is a pretty good game. the 2nt one is much better though. in Aerowings 2 you get to dog fight and it has 2 player split screen to kill your friend in air combat. it has more jets to pick from too.


good luck with burning games or other DC images. i too use discjuggler. imo it is by far the best program to use. the demo forces the lowest burning speed it has. this is good because DC games can get messed up at high burning speeds. also the demo is free and the trial never runs out, unlike Nero. and imo Nero is slightly harder to run. another program often used is alcohol 120%. its trial like Nero runs out though.
