HKT - 3020 (After Nov. 2000) Problems

Post#1 » Sun Sep 26, 2010 6:40 pm

I know models made before the date stated above can read burned discs, is there any way to play them on models after that date?

And if I have Phantasy Star, original copy, can I play online with burned copies? :D I'm new to owning a Dreamcast, so any help would be appreciated.

No one has ever found a Dreamcast that can't play burnt CD's. You are probably safe. Just try to and burn a game a see if it works. That's the only thing I can say. If you need help burning a game just post back.

Yeah, I read somewhere that the "Dreamcast made after... can't play backups" was a rumor started by Sega.

i'm not 100% sure that it is a rumor started by Sega, or if it's even a rumor at all? it sure does seem like every one i know can play burned games. i have owned a shit load of DC's and all of mine play CD-rs. i wish someone with a questionable model would try it so we could put this to rest.

Sorry about the late post. Well, apparently to me, it's a fact :/ They wouldn't work, but I put in an origonal copy, and it worked. So I have to mod it or what?

maybe your not burning it right. That is usually the main problem for people.

i agree with Favrenation, it is far more likely that you made a mistake burning it. or perhaps you didn't burn a self booting image?

Heres my favorite tutorial: Burn with disc juggler:

http://psopalace.schtserv.com/downloads/dj4_demo.zip

Then hit new then click Burn CD and DVD images then do the following:
1. Mount the .CDI file
2. Go to the advanced tab
3. Click the down box and set mode to MODE 2
4. Click RAW WRITE
5. Set write speed at lowest possible
6. Hit burn and within 20-30minutes you should have the disc ready

Most games are auto-boot(meaning they start without having to use another disc) I have not had a game that isn't auto boot and I have tried a lot of games
Crazy Taxi
Quake 3
PSO PAL V2
Typing of the Dead
Sonic Adventure 2
Soul Calibur
Half-life
Sonic Shuffle

All these games I have tried and I can confirm that they should start with out the other disc(I don't even know what the other disc is called because I have never run into the problem)

ENJOY.

I did not make this but I follow this and it works!

Well there has never been a documented Dreamcast that couldn't. So try try the guide from one of the games in our download section. They almost all selfboot and they are greatly made by the dreamcast gods Tux the Wise, Vasilly, and Captain Dreamcast.
