Question about Sega Dreamcast Console

2 Answers

It will play music, but not the game. it keeps going back to a screen with four icons on it. It says game, music, memory and settings. Every time i back out of one, the disc starts spinning and a Sega screen shows up, but no game. it goes back to the screen. I went to the music section and it says "this is a dreamcast game, do not play it in a CD player."

Hi,

Looks like your Dreamcast can't read the game properly either due to damaged disc or the dreamcast GD rom is not working properly. try recalibrating the GD rom using this guide: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTMSRfEqWAU

How can i download games to samsung e251 when i send it ,it always go to "other files".. how can i play the game in my phone..please help..thanks


Harlene,
Samsung has Music, Videos, Pictures and Other folders both on the phone and on the memory card. Any file that does not fit Music or Videos or Pictures goes to Other folder. You cant help it. It just goes there. Now after downloading the games files to Other folder. Go to Other and install them. They will appear under Games icon in Menu. Select it from here and play the game.

WHen I turn on my PSP I get a yellow screen/Menu. It has Settings, Camera, Music, Video etc. How do I exit this to play a game?


This is the XMB its the main menu of the system. Games will be located under the Controller Icon. To play games insert a UMD, or if a game is downloaded and saved on the memory card, go through the icons under Controller icon. A disk icon will appear and show a preview screen to the game, press X to start the game.

My psp works really good but when i try to play games or movies it starts to slow down and flicker


1. Set “UMD Mode” to M33 driver NO UMD
The PSP firmware version was 3.71 M33 but is also tested with higher versions like 3.8 M33. These firmware versions should have the UMD mode to M33 NO UMD.

To set the following you need to go to the Configuration Page. To go there you need to:
i. Turn off your PSP
ii. Press and hold the R button. While doing that slide and hold the power button up. This would turn on your PSP. You should hold until the black screen appears saying “M33 Recovery Menu Configuration”
iii. If the PSP just turns on to the normal menu, just repeat the two steps above.

2. Set “Use VshMenu” to Disabled.
It is also in the configuration page. Use the steps above and you should be able to find it.
Now after these two steps, if you continue no further, your PS would run faster – but only for the menu screen. The menu would be fast and really responsive. However, try playing a game. You would notice that loading is still slow and the gameplay is still played in slow motion


3. Set the CPU speed to Default.
Now this is really important. The CPU may not really be used when playing music or in the menu screen but its very important when you play games.
There are two settings you need to adjust. Speed in XMB and Speed in UMD/ISO. For us normal users we just need to set these two to “Default”.
After this, your PSP should be running ok. However, I recommend that you do another step which would also help the performance of your PSP.

4. Free up memory from your Memory Stick.
You can do this using two methods. One, you could connect your PSP to your PC using a USB cable. Two, you could remove your memory stick and use a card reader. I prefer the second method but you may use any of the two.


Method Two: Remove your memory stick and use a card reader.
Freeing up memory is easy, if you know what files to remove. As my friend is not really using her PSP for music and videos, majority of her files are game files. What she does is that she just puts games that she really plays. I recommend doing the same for your PSP.
Game files are located at the folder named “ISO”. The game files have a .CSO file name extension. You don’t need to delete them. Just transfer them to your hard disk. That way, when you want to play them again, you just have to transfer them back to your memory stick.
But if you have music and video files that take up much space, I recommend that you look into those first. Normally you would like to have at least 500MB of free disk space. You’d need the space for your game saves.

My friends have done the steps above with ease and have solved their slow PSP problems. Most of them, if not all, had to do all four mentioned above. The first three usually solves the problem.

Nitendo DS lite how to play music using R4 revolution DS on my


First you need to make sure you have the current firmware for the R4 card loaded onto the micro-sd card. I know that some R4 cards only accept up to a 2gb memory card so check and make sure you are using the correct micro card with the R4. When you have downloaded the firmware for your card you need to make some folders. Label them games...movies... music... etc.. making a folder for each one. Put the Mp3 files in the correct folder. When you use your R4 you will see three icons at the startup screen go to the one labeled multi-media... Moonshell will run the movies/music... you are ready to go ... hope this helps

Tracks were synced but player says no tracks how


For the PSP you must create a music folder on the memory stick after the memory stick is formatted by the PSP. Then you add your music to that folder. More detailed instructions can be found at us.playstation.com under PSP support and under manuals and search for copying music files.http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/Manuals/PSP

Any game i play disk arcade or demos xbox freezes


Try the following:
  1. Hold disc by the edges without touching the surface with your fingers. Clean the disc with a soft cloth, lightly wiping from the center outwards. Do not use solvents or chemicals to clean the disc. Examine the disc for any visible signs of damage.
  2. Verify whether the Xbox console clock is set correctly.
    • Turn on the Xbox console without a disc in the drive.
    • Press the directional pad up or down to select Main Menu, and then press A.
    • Press the directional pad up or down to select Settings, and then press A.
    • Press the directional pad up or down to select Clock, and then press A.
    You can see the date and time from this screen. Correct the date and time as neccessary.

  3. Try to play the game again. If this does not work, you can try to clear the game cache on the Xbox hard disk. If you have a Xbox Memory Unit available, copy the game cache for this game from the Xbox hard disk to a memory unit:
    1. Insert a memory unit into a controller connected to your Xbox console.
    2. Open the disc tray and remove any disc, if present.
    3. Close the disc tray and re-start your Xbox console.
    4. Select Memory from the main Xbox Dashboard, and then press the A button.
    5. Select Xbox Hard Disk, and then press the A button.
    6. Locate and select the game you want to back up in the list of games.
    7. Select the appropriate save game icon. The Save game icons are located to the right of the game icon. Each save game is identified with a name, date, time, and size.
    8. Press the A button to display the Copy/Delete menu for the save game.

      Note: If Copy is not available, you have not chosen a save game file.
    9. Select Save, and then press the A button.
    10. Press the A button again to save to the appropriate memory unit.
    11. As soon as the copy is complete, press the B button to return to the list of save games.
    12. Repeat these steps as needed to back up your other saved games for this game.
    If you do not have a memory unit, deleting the game cache removes your progress in the game, high scores, and other information. To find the game cache, follow these steps:
    1. Open the disc tray and remove the any disk, if present.
    2. Close the disc tray and re-start your Xbox console.
    3. Select the Memory option from the Dashboard.
    4. Select the Xbox Hard Disk.
    5. Locate and select the game in the list of games.
  4. Select the large game icon to the left of the list and press the A button.
  5. Press the Abutton again to delete the game cache file.
    Note: Delete should be the only available option. If Copy is available, you have chosen a game save file and not the game cache file. Press the B button to return to the list, and then select the leftmost icon.
  6. Select Yes to permanently delete the game cache, and then press the A button.
  7. Confirm that the icon is no longer listed, and then re-start your Xbox console.
  8. Insert the game disc, and then either load your latest saved game from the memory unit, or play the game from the beginning.

Csi:crime scene investigation


the game has many software issues i owned as well and did not respond when i loaded it up. It also could be your xbox it because the xbox is old and worn down to run down to keep up with the newer games.The xbox came out in 2000-2001 so the game is like four years newer. I think you should trade it in for a playstation2 because they have put more newer parts and upgraded it to keep it going for a longer period of time.
