How to Make a Dreamcast Boot Disk
Dreamcast grew in popularity because of its compatibility with CD-RW. (laser and disks image by Mark Albert from Fotolia.com)

Dreamcast was the last Sega video game console before the company changed its business model to concentrate solely on video game design. In later years, the Dreamcast became popular for being able to play games burnt onto recordable CDs. Playing burnt games on a Dreamcast requires the use of a boot disk. Boot disks, such as Utopia, are free to use, but can only be burnt using special software. DiskJuggler is free and can quickly burn multisession CDI files, which are required for boot disks.
