No. The Dreamcast can already read CD-R's as is. Assuming the Dreamcast chipset is fine with reading PC games due to Windows CE compatibility, it's probably due to BIOS coding of some sort. You know, that strange ring on the disc, near the hole in the centre.
It should be fine reading CD-Rs as it is. It just doesn't know what to do with them since DCs are not designed to process the kind of information that is on them. Some games have been ported though. There's this one trilogy from the makers of Halo that got ported. Marathon. You can even play it with the keyboard. You can't save though. So good luck with that... lol
