    Have you tried to browse to you file in "build" mode and let Imgburn create the ISO for you?

    EDIT: Actually Imgburn might not be recognizing the file structure in your image...see here:

    http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=5342&hl=unsupported

    The new version should hit the street pretty soon. If you have Nero you might give it a shot with Burning Rom or Express.

    Ahhh you've got the dodgy OEM version of Nero that came without Burning ROM. Uninstall that one it's useless, download the trial version here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/CD-DVD-Tools/Data-CD-DVD-Burning/Nero-7-Premium.shtml

    Easiest way of putting ISO's onto DVD that I know of is to use Alcohol 120% if you have it. If not download it here: http://filehippo.com/download_alcohol_120/

    Then just run the "Image Burning Wizard" and it should ask you whether you want to use your DVD+R drive to burn to a DVD. When it does say yes, obviously.

    errr.. has anybody actually read what the op is attempting?..

    Burn a dreamcast CD iso to a dvd.. That will fail for more than one reason.. first and foremost.. The dreamcast has a cd-rom drive.. second.. the first thing a burning program is going to do with this iso is set up the disk type.. cd iso means it is a cd image. There is no way to directly burn a cd image on a dvd.. wrong disk type error from the burning engine every time.

    You can store the iso on a dvd by burning it as a data disk, or if you use something like isobuster/isomagik you can rip the files out and make a new iso for burning to dvd.. you need to specify the disk type when you make the iso, not after. But it still will not work in a dreamcast.

    @varnull,
    Absolutely correct!

    I should read more carfully.He mentioned something about building the ISO, thought he took care of unpacking/repacking.

    It would be like trying to burn a VCD compilation directly onto a DVD Video.

    Sorry jadariipa, could've saved you some time, had I read more carefully! Will blame it on late hours of the night(or maybe early of the morning)!
