Burning Backups in DiscJuggler 6 (2015 Guide)

Post#1 » Sun Feb 22, 2015 7:43 pm

Tried to burn some backups a few weeks ago, but all the guides seem to be outdated and imgburn/120 alcohol didnt like alot of the images i tried. So after a large stack of coasters was made. I have a working backup configuration for new versions of disc juggler. 99% success rate

-----------------------------------------------------------
What you need:
Paddus DiscJuggler 6
Backup Image
Blank CD

Right click your .cdi and open with DiscJuggler

On the first "Source & Destination" tab; Under "Action" make sure it is set to write. Not "Write and verify". Verify never works for me.

The image usually overrides the burn speed, but incase it doesnt, set it to 8x anyway. NOT TOO LOW, as i think the burn speed dictates the speed the disc can be read.

In the "Advanced Tab"; set "Mode" to "Mode 1/DVD". Block to "2352".
TOC to CD-XA

Check the following boxes: "Add post-gap to 3rd party images" "RAW write" and "Overburn disc"

Insert your cd-r

Click Start

Upon completion test your backup and it should load up fine

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The reason of this method change/update is most of the images out there, tux's especially; are either setup for old versions of dj or the image is already setup with the appropriate settings embedded.

Setting to the old method, Mode 2 block 2336 etc, burns the entire disc as that format (to my understanding). Using the above method, the first session of the disc (the actual game data) is burned in format the DC can read. The second session (boot sector) is already setup and will burn mode 2 etc automatically

Hopefully this saves people some coasters

I have to have a Pentium 4 computer with Windows XP, DJ and a 1X burner to burn Dreamcast games. saturn games will burn fine in linux with any software at 24X. I wonder why?

The Saturn's ODD is of much higher quality than the Dreamcast's. It probably has a stronger laser.

Durn I save one to always have your settings mate, yet TOC always reverts to CD-DA >.<

I use the above settings (Mode1/DVD, 2352, Add-post gap..., RAW, Overburn), except for CD-XA and rarely (if ever) get any coasters.
