you cant just put a dreamcast game into your computer and make a backup
unless by some very small chance you have a cdrom drive that supports the gd-rom format used by the dreamcast

i think you have to hook a special cable from the dreamcast to the pc.

The Sega Dreamcast CD's are actually GD-ROMs, sort for Gigabyte Disc, holding maximum 1 GB of Data instead of the standard 650-700 Mb. Developed by Yamaha, the GD-ROM is a proprietary format which works by packing the pits on the disc closer together to store more data. Along with more storage the GD-ROMs provide an extra level of Copy Protection as they cannot be reproduced using a standard CD-Writer.

kar10, watch it. We don't tolerate that kind of attitude here.

I guess I'll close this down due to subject matter as I don't believe that you are just making copies of your own games anymore. Way to go!
