Question about Sega Dreamcast Console
When i turn the DC on and insert a game into it it'll read it and when i try to play the game it'll say insert a game disc.This happens with all of my games but when i put a music CD into it it auto starts into the music player and plays that but not my game. can someone help!!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
