Sega CD newbie question

Recommended Posts

So here is my dumb question. If I have a ROM on my computer of the genesis version, can that ROM be written to a CD for use on the SegaCD? I'd love to have a version of the current rosters and the classic teams, but I don't have much knowledge in this area.

As far as I know, we can't burn the ROM version and play it on SegaCD. What you could do is find out how to burn a CD of ROM's to play on Dreamcast, Xbox, and most of the newer systems. I had a CD of Genesis and Nintendo ROM's that played on a Dreamcast. I don't know how the person who gave it to me accomplished this, though I'm sure you can find it somewhere.

I have seen that, but I'd need to mod my XBox to accomplish that. Once I do that, I cannot do XBox Live anymore. I may just take an older computer and turn it into a emulator/game system.

I think it would be possible to play ROMS on the actual Sega CD if you had the source code for each game.  Check out this site: http://www.retrodev.com/

damn that sounsd pretty complicated... I thought it wouldn't be a problem, so me and my cuz went head first and bought a sega cd with anticipation of playing one of his modified versions of nhl 94 on an actual system.... but I don't think you can do it relatively easy, which blows big time cause we spent quite a bit on it.

I was lost by the second sentence, ha! I think what I might do is just convert one of my old PCs into a GENS machine and hook it up to my TV. Now all I need to do is find a USB adapter for my Genesis controllers. :P

Another way is to get a flash cart device from www.tototek.com That will let you play any Sega Genesis ROMS on the actual system.
