    Possibly bad/unreliable disc media?

    Could still be low quality media or the Dreamcast laser Pot could do with a tune up (Youtube search for the laser pot)

    If I was you I would give a tune up a try first before re-burning any more CD-R's and see if you can get smooth reading

    The Dreamcast is not by default tuned very well for reading CD-R's as it is tuned more for GD-Roms so tuning it for CD-R reading may degrade the GD-Rom reading quality

    Also worth noting that some rips especially older ones do have lag from CD-R due to file order hat later rips fixed, the only game I never could fix fully was Who Want to be a Millionaire though I did improve on the existing rip but not for all the FMV

    Skies of Arcadia if you are trying that though will lag regardless with the older rip as that extracts on the fly

    i KNOW i'm not breaking rules, still expecting some flimsy bs to fly here.
    ...
    @ op.
    type into a search engine letter for letter (no tab quotes) "UPDATE v1.3 IMGBurn 2.5.7.0 w/ Dreamcast Drivers - atreyu187" for it's custom drivers.
    later version of imgburn is recommended here, with the above drivers added to the installed program.
    user manually adds in those profiles.
    the google pointer has a full writ on what to do on the DL page.
    also,
    try another write (closed session) and a disk label stated speed, like 8x for example.
