Post by XC-3730C »

I am looking for someone to my dreamcast to have IDE so I can play games from a hard drive.

Please PM me if you can help.

Here is technical info on this mod:

Because games running off of IDE work a lot better. The SD card port isn't fast enough for most retail games

So every single game you have run with your serial port SD adapter runs perfectly with no stuttering? Are you running Dreamshell from SD?

According to this link, many games don't work:

I also want a HDD so I can use a 500gb HDD, and SD cards don't run that high.

I'm also planning to get a GD-ROM emulator (GDEMU / USB-GDROM). :D

As XC-3730C said, many games are not compatible with DreamShell / serial port SD adapter.

And yes, it's faster.
