    Sega Dreamcast

    I just came into possession of a Sega Dreamcast. All I have is the console right now. I took it and had it tested and it does boot, I had the lens cleaned, but will not recognize a game disc. Does anybody know about a Dreamcast, can it be modded, does the lens need adjusting (like the ps2 fat), where to get replacement parts if needed. Any help will be appreciated.

    I can remember having a boot disc with mine to play some off my back ups but if i remember right most of my games did not even require it i should think its about as hard to hack as a zx spectrum to you lot

    It looks like I should have purchased a controller while I had the chance, I don't live near the shop that sells that stuff and will have to wait until I'm in that town. As for the rest of it, it looks kind of easy, I'll just have to figure out why the disc is not recognized.
