I use burnerO's "dir2boot" utility!
you simply place the .bin file in a folder on its own and run the tool. then select the folder and it creates a selfbootable image of the bin ;)

I use the selfboot utility which should be in the needed tools section on dcemu.co.uk site or you could go to www.dcemulation.com and go to there needed tools selection and they will have it there.

is the bin scrambled or unscrambled?

If its unscrammbled i recommend DCTOOL but others may represent to you a program called Selfboot Induder it will scramble the 1ST_READ.bin which is required for the dreamcast.

get the DCTool program from needed tools at www.dcemu.co.uk or even www.dcemulation.com all you have to do is scramble it

Hello, i'm new here! I'm from de Portuguese Dreamcasters Comunity.
- turning a game selfboot is very easy, that is, if you use the right tool...

I recomend Bin2Boot, because its automatic, you just have to make an .iso or .bin image and the run the program, its available for download at megagames:
