Ok guys i have 4 dreamcasts the problem is people beat the crap out of em. try holding the lid partially closed with a weight on top it should read the disk and play good. the sensor that tells it there is a disk in there is probaly a little screwed up. Also get a clean cue tip and some 91% rubbing alcohol and gently clean the lens on the laser and it sould work like new. so get to the browser with the lid open all the way put a disk in and slowly close the lid at about 80 percent closed it should say reading disk put a weight on the lid to keep it where it is and try the game if it works your good. permenent solution. remove modem and the 4 screws at the bottom of the dreamcast without a disk in there pull the top off. now look at the part of the lid that hits the little black flapper (it's on the top right of the main board) now tape or glue a small amount of anthing to the part of the lid that hits the switch about 4 mm thick of paper taped to it will push the switch further in and it should recognize disks better now and all will be well in the world e-mail me for pix if you want apple225@juno.com

I have the same problem. I wish I could offer you a solution but after I found a friend that had a dreamcast, we've just consolidated our games and now we play hers all the time. My system is still sitting in my room gathering dust. I hope someone finds a solution for this problem, though.

Hmm. May be because the disc is scratched? Not sure what it would be otherwise, if other games work just fine.

When insert game into my 3ds it wont read game


I have the same kind of problem. It does not read my Kingdom Hearts 3D cartridge at all, regardless of any way I tried to make it read it. I heard it may have something to do with regional difference and it's true - the 3DS comes from USA, while the game from Europe. While I have Pokemon Diamond cartridge, which is also from Europe and it reads it just fine. Does it mean the regional difference matters only in case of 3DS cartridges?
If not, how can I solve my problem?

The front slot is made for NES games such as mario/duckhunt, and the back slot is made for SNES games. Make sure you put them in the right direction as well.

Good Luck,

Put this in an xbox 360 console


Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
