Freezing problem with Games

I have a problem with my DC, sometimes when i play Shenmue or something when i for example leave the house, sometimes it freezes when it says "Now loading", or else it will just get black screen and nothing happens.

This also happens with other games like Sonic Adventure and Quake III.

The Dreamcast is no longer supported because it was to easy to copy the games, but there are still a loyal few who keep the scene alive. I have no idea how much you want to put into fixing the problem, but the only way to fix your problem is flashing the Dreamcast BIOS.

The Dreamcast is basically a computer; with the right programming you can do anything; and having a Dreamcast Keyboard is nice.

Try getting a lens cleaner disc. You should be able to find one were you get your games and/or movies.

Game freezes after playing for a while but no red rings appear


Games freeze for two reasons. Overheating and the hard drive locking up. If you have your games installed, you most likely eliminated the overheating problem.

Since you are not getting Red Ring, it probably isn't overheating. That leaves the hard drive. Turn of the console and unplug it. Remove the hard drive. Now is a good time to clean any dust from the connectors or vents. Reattach and play. Some games like Fable 2, Fallout 3, and others are more prone to freezing when accessing the hard drive that others. If it is freezing more times than not, you have an issue with the hard drive.

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only


Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.

PS3 freezing during multiple games


Check the vents on you ps3. If those are blocked or even too close to a wall or something like that, the game will freeze.

Games keep freezing


You might possibly have to much memory on it. Or of course, it COULD have just gotten the Sony version of the 360's red ring of death. This will sound really simple, but you probably should call Sony's support and see what they say. Also check in the disc slot to make sure nothing is blocking the disc. You could get a cheap fan to stay on while you're playing b/c many times game consoles just wear out. My best guess would be that their is something where it souldn't be. You might also try playing with a different controller. Game systems can be really unpredictable b/c they require so much human interaction that they aren't always ready for.

Dreamcast Loading problem


you can get disks relayered at game stores.
there was a long period where this happened to me.
some games worked for a while, some didnt.
its the dreamcast.
you might wanna get anew power cable or just clear out the dust because that is the main problem with the dreamcast.
try playing with the console upside down
it sounds crazy but it worked for me.

Dreamcast Audio Problem


Try lubricating the drive and clean the lens with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. Then use a dry q-tip to dry up any of the remains of the rubbing alcohol. You'll also need to open up the drive to lubricate it.
