Question about Sega Dreamcast Console
Well the last time it worked i was playing Sonic Adventure 2 and then it froze right before i ended the stage so ever since then my Dreamcast wont spin the disk it will spin obviously slowly and go to the starting logo and then go to the Dreamcast main menu it is 8 years old and never dropped or damaged at all the inside is clean and un tampered with no dust on the fan and never over heated but now it will not work
1. Turns on and does the Dreamcast intro
2. Stays there for a minute or two then the disk stops
3. It goes to the main menu and will say insert disk if you select play
4. If you open the disk trey and close it it'll read and ractically repeat step 2
SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!

My Dreamcast has been doing the same thing for the last few years. I think it has something to do with the hard drive. My suggestion, is turning the dreamcast on and off over and over again until the game loads. I play a game Grandia II which does the same thing. It depends, but sometimes it takes me 20-30 tries, other times, I've done it in just 1 or 2. I have a feeling it has something to do with how the cd is precisely in the correct position, but I'm not sure. Let me know if this works.
