Hello,

I'm new here and looking to get my Dreamcast back online!

I have a PAL dreamcast and have acquired a BBA.

I need a little bit of help with what disc I should use for setting up the BBA, so far it seems I should get XDP, but where can I get a copy of that from?

Thanks Smile

Slight update on this.... I've downloaded XDP LE R4, however i'm having trouble getting it to burn to a disc and getting the dreamcast to read it.

The Cdi file I have is 810.8MB - obviously too big for a 700mb disc. I know this has something to do with what programme you use to burn the disc, but not exactly sure what that is...

I suppose what I need to know is what programme do I use to get this file to a disc that the DC will read? I'm also a Mac user, so can't use PC software.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,

The two main applications for burning Dreamcast games are Padus Disc Juggler which burns cdi files, and Alcohol 120%. Sometimes Nero will work as well. I have no experience doing these tasks on a Mac. A lot of work over the years on Dreamcast homebrew has been done on Windows.

Awesome. Were you able to connect to the web with your BBA?
