Hi, new to Dreamcast. I have a code 0 system that should run burned discs. I burned CDIs of Virtua Tennis and San Francisco Rush 2049 to Verbatim CD-Rs and tried them in my Dreamcast to no success. Going to the game menu gave me "Please insert game disc". Oddly enough the system wanted to display my burned game as a music disc. I used ImgBurn 18.104.22.168 on Windows 8.1.
I used the same setup to burn Utopia bootdisc 1.1 and this bootdisc loaded immediately on my system and gave me the menu with the rotating deer where it demands a game disc. I tried to load both of the games I burned at this menu. First game did nothing and the disc stopped spinning. Second game began to load, kept the disc spinning, and the on screen menu appeared to do something with the deer disappearing. But ultimately all it did was enter an extreme slowdown where the deer re-appeared, spinning extremely slowly as if the system was struggling. I tried the first game again and oddly enough it spun up this time but did the same slowdown thing as game #2 without ever booting the game.
Perhaps it's worth noting that I also tested an official music CD and a burned music CD-R and both played fine immediately without a bootdisc.
Anybody have an idea what I am doing wrong?
