Hi,

try this youtube guide here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rizeLEQyzs&feature=related, during the video the person will talk about a black plastic leave that gets pushed back by the dreamcast lid. if that lever is not being pushed back the drive will not spin. you can try the suggestion in the guide also.

Hope this helps,

Omeil

I was given a sega dreamcast everything works but when it says install disc i put the disc on the wheel close the door and the cd wont stay on the wheel


If I recall the Sega Dreamcast wheel is a clasp type wheel. You need to push the disk down onto the wheel and you will hear it secure itself onto the wheel. Then close the wheel and you should be good to go. Don't just place it on the wheel... push it down until you here that little clicking sound and it should stay on the wheel.

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...


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

Dreamcast Console: Will not load game says to load disc...


does the disk spin at all? if it does try cleaning the lens.
if it doesnt spin, try taking it apart because it could be loose cables.
and if its neither of these, its probably dead.

Dreamcast is not reading disk says please put in disk


There can be 1 or 3 problems with this
1 The laser lens needs to be replaced
2 The motor that spins the disc needs replacing
3 The motor that drives the laser carriage needs replacing.

90% of the time its the laser lens

Dreamcast "please insert disc"


I noticed you said and I quote "a copy of an original game in chinese" you did say chinese right? Is it possible that the system you have may be a PAL system if so that means it's not a USA Region console meaning it won't play Region 1 USA games just PAL

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at https://www.6ya.com/expert/benjamin_494963e790f97efb

Sega Dreamcast screw


The Disc drive has a connector on the bottom that has to mate up with the opposite gender connector on the top of the motherboard. you have to press the Drive down first then put the screws in.

Sega Dreamcast Disk-reading piece


cripes I think you may have mixed your screws up?
1 it sounds like you are using a self tapping screw (it has a greater distance between each layer) rather than the tight screws which are for fitting the circuits together.
2 I believe there are three screw holes for the disc reading part of the dreamcast and you really only need two to keep the disc player in place, so also try another hole.
3 and one last thing to check you haven't put a screw underneath the board already?
