    Default How to burn a Dreamcast game (.cdi .iso)

    PIRATING IS ILLEGAL! DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PIRATE! THIS IS FOR PERSONAL USE AND FOR BACKUP COPIES ONLY! YOU MUST OWN THE GAME!

    What You will need:

    1. <<EDIT>>You need the disc image of your original disc. <<EDIT>>
    2. Disc Juggler
    3. CD burner
    4. Blank CD's
    5. And Duh! a Dreamcast!

    STEP 1: <<EDIT>>You need the disc image of your original disc. <<EDIT>>

    STEP 2: <<EDIT>>You need the disc image of your original disc. <<EDIT>>

    STEP 3: Download the burning program called Disk Juggler. http://www.padus.com/downloads/demo.php

    Once you finished downloading it.... Follow these steps. MAKE SURE YOU BURN AT OR UNDER 8X. (http://imrtechnology.ngemu.com/cdiburn.htm)

    NOTE: If the file is over 700 MB click the check mark OVER BURN CD. DISK JUGGLER ONLY WORKS ON .CDI AND .ISO FILES ONLY!!!!!!! If you get files that are not .CDI or .ISO. Look up for bin and cue burning WARNING!!! OVERBURING TOO MUCH CAN RUIN YOUR BURNER!

    STEP 4: (Only if it doesn't boot)
    Find a place to burn a thing called utopia boot disk. It will boot some CD's that don't self boot.


    Instructions By Kevin



    A GRR! note: If the file is over 700mb, you must have the full version of disk juggler if its over 700mb.



    *anyone is allowed to use this tutorial*


    NOTE:NOTE: I hope im not breaking any rules.

    Sorry, I had to edit that a bit, so it was suitable for our little forum. I hope this information is still useful to some.

    How do you burn 'em on a Mac? I've tried dozens of times on OSX but could never figure it out.

    Ubuntu Linux users may want to know that it is possible to burn em inside there as well. You just need to use cdi2nrg (CDI to Nero image) win32 application inside of WINE to convert to a Nero compatible image. From there you can use the new Nero for Linux (v3.0 I believe) to burn. I have done it with hundreds of images and it works great.

    I've burned them on OS X using Toast Titanium. It handles Nero or iso images with no problems. The only hangup is that a lot of images are .cdi/disk juggler images so you have to use Windows to run Cdi2Nero to convert them first. With Intel Macs and VMWare or Bootcamp running a quick Windows app is no problem but if you're still PPC it's a good idea to have an old PC for these pesky apps.

    There's an OSX program called LiquidCD that can handle most .cdi's now. It can't overburn, though.

    edit: I found a program called iCDIRip that claims to convert .cdi's to Toast images. However it's several years old and I don't have a chance at the moment to try it, so be wary.
