Use the Dic Juggler settings stated earlier in this thread by me.

Yeah I tried that too, same results. And I'm using a rev. 0 DC, so I'm pretty clueless as to what could be wrong.

Try mounting it with DAEMON TOOLZ then ripping it with Alcohol 120% then burn RAW/DAO.

Uh, will RAW SAO do? I guess my burner doesn't support RAW DAO...

Nah it doesn't show up, and it's not listed a capability in the system info.

Maybe that burner isn't capable to burn playable DC games.

Yeah that's pretty much the conclusion I'm coming to, one I wish I had come to 5 coasters ago. :wink:

Use, Provlist.

OPTIONAL: For the ROM list to load quicker (by not reading each ROMs header for the game's title) you can use a ROM list creator. You can use Provlist by burnerO. You must place it in the roms directory prior to running (make sure your ROMs are in this directory). Use it at your own risk! There has been cases where people have ran this tool in a system folder, renaming all system files. Be warned that the renaming can not be undone!

By "I was wondering how to get my ROM's list loading faster.", I meant that the topic answered my question, lol, bad wording on my part.

I strongly recommend to use ROMLST by The Krypt instead as it won't rename your ROMs:

(Sorry, I haven't had time to add this into the tutorial!)
You really need to get rid of Provlist :!:

Try using the CDRecord frontend.
Audio/Data or Data/Data should work just as good as the other.
