hey guys,
I just finished burning a game and hte utopia burn disc. the first time i tried it recognized the utopia disc and then wouldnt boot the game. i figured i burned the game wrong. but now the utopia disc wont even get recognized. it just stays on the boot screen and keeps saying reading disc. then the reading disc thing goes away and then comes back sparadically.(spelling?) it seems like the lens isnt moving or something.

ne help would be appreciated.


thanks

If you DO have lens problems... buy a new Dreamcast, there's nothing you can do to fix it that would be cheaper then just buying a new one.

if you want a cheap DC look for one with broken controller ports.

there's a fuse on the controller port board that would often blow with 3rd party controllers. replace it with a 10K resistor and enjoy your new DC. smile.gif
