    I just finnished downloading and burning the game Lucienne's Quest using easy cd pro 95, but my 3do just keeps trying to read it like a music cd. Any ideas how to get it to work?

    Did it come with a cue sheet? If so, open that cue sheet with Notepad or some text editor and tell me if you see the data track listed twice, once in the beginning and once at the end. I think 3DO games were the ones where they had that type of weird layout.

    Well, this is what it says in the cue sheet:

    then that cue sheet has an identity crisis ;). it's an sfv file. the cue should look something like (example names, size per sector sizes):


    TRACK 01 MODE2/2352

    INDEX 01 00:00:00

    then later it should repeat the data track, according to akuma. i thought those were TG16/PCE disc images that had double data tracks though.

    3DO is strictly one track only. No audio, no second data track, no nothing. Also, because of the odd 3DO format you can't view the files in the ISO (assuming it's cooked) like you can with say a SegaCD or Saturn 2048/cooked ISO image.

    For some reason the only prog I could get to make a working 3DO disc from a 2048 ISO is DiscJuggler 3.xx. If the image isn't 2048/cooked you should be able to burn it with CDRWin. The nifty lil' trick is figuring out which format your ISO is in without a CUE sheet. If you don't mind wasting a CDR or two you could use the example CUE that lockecole2 just posted - that's about how a 2352/RAW 3DO CUE would look - just adjust the file name and CUE sheet to match each other.

    Good luck.

    I'd hope you actually extracted the ace files before you burnt. if you did, there should've been a cue file in there too.

    Nope, none :( . This is beginning to tick me off, I can't buy the game because no one is selling a copy on ebay or yahoo, and I can't burn it because it didn't come with a cue sheet.

    Might CDMage be able to tell you the ISO format?

    Just use this:


    TRACK 01 MODE2/2352

    INDEX 01 00:00:00

    If it doesn't work, use this:


    TRACK 01 MODE1/2048

    INDEX 01 00:00:00

    If neither work... you may wanna d/l again.

    Are you 100% sure you got all seven files in the ACE archive?

    Running an SFV check with the .SFV file should determine if Fabrizo downloaded all seven files.

    Opening the .BIN file with CDmage should be able to generate a valid cue sheet, given that it's able to read it.
