    I'm no expert (having not owned a DC) but, correct me if I am wrong, I thought that you could'nt backup DC directly, rather a 'Group' reverse engineered a DC CD drive to work with a PC so they could read the 1gig proprietry discs which the DC used. They then created CDR's (ripping where the data was over 800m) for the masses.

    Or I could be talking out of me a**. ;)

    Filo you have the jist of it. Basically what people do with the Xbox was done with the DC (easiest way to explain).

    But once you have made a disc then it is a simple straight backup using DJ.

    My understanding is that you have to use either the DC Coders Cable or get a Broadband adapter and connect your Dreamcast to the PC. The Coders Cable connect the serial port on the Dreamcast to a serial port on your PC, although, the Broadband adapter connection is faster and can be connected to any computer network hardware. Once this is accomplished, you will have to find the Dreamcast and PC software that allows you to start up the Deamcast in "transfer" mode and sends all of the data on the GD-ROM to the PC instead of running it.
