How do I burn .BIN DC Images?

Ok, since I can't post in the Burning FAQ forum, I'm posting here. I got a repacked fixed version of Soul Reaver for Dreamcast, but it's a .BIN file, and Nero won't burn it, and Discjuggler will burn it but it doesn't work in the DC. How do I get it to work?

Re: Game does not support A/V cable?

That list says MKG works with VGA but my game won't. Maybe 'cause it's burned. Would that make it not work? I tested it on a TV and MKG works fine, but Skies of Arcadia won't boot...

Game does not support A/V cable?

I've got my DC hooked up to a VGA box and Mortal Kombat Gold and Skies of Arcadia won't work because it says "Game does not support current type of A\V cable please connect correct cable". I know this means I have to use a standard TV A/V cable but that defeats the purpose! Is there any way I can ge...

Re: Official DC Overclocking thread

Wait, so in the Rev. 0 Dreamcast, the RAM, Sound, and GPU all run at 8ns (125MHz)? And the Rev. 1 Dreamcast RAM, Sound, and GPU all run at 10ns (100MHz)?

Re: Assuming this existed would be you buy it?

i realize different people like different things, and if you hype something up enough, you can make people not care so much about graphics (which most people prefer) and make them care about a new type of controller. But really, most people want nice graphics, which explains why games are not gettin...

Re: Assuming this existed would be you buy it?

whatever. the core of every console is the CPU, and thus the most important component. RAM, GPU and all that are very important factors of a system. So if you think none of that "crap" matters, then why do you think Sony and Microsoft spent millions developing a system with high powered CPU, RAM, an...

Re: Assuming this existed would be you buy it?

What I meant by that was that when the cool controller craze wears off, it's just going to be another console, and 700MHz does not qualify as powerful enough for a true "next-gen" console. I mean the PS3 has like a 4GHz CPU and I can't remember what the XB360 has, but they are true next-gen consoles...

Re: Assuming this existed would be you buy it?

A system is more than just a cool controller, albeit that is definitely a plus, and Nintendo markets the Wii around the controller, but what happens when that fades away? The system sucks. 700MHz just isn't ample for a next-gen system, and that's what people are gonna want... CPU power. I always tho...

Hacking Keyboard and Mouse

Is there any way to use a standard USB or PS2 keyboard on the Dreamcast? I saw somewhere where one guy I think hacked his USB keyboard to work with it, but is the mouse possible? I have both the mouse and keyboard for the Dreamcast, and Unreal Tournament and Quake 3 Arena are way more fun with them.

Re: Official DC Overclocking thread

Wow. Is this really worth it? I mean I heard somewhere that the CPU and RAM timings go out of sync and may present performance issues. Would it be better just to overclock the GPU?
