Hi All,

First post. Looking for help. I am fortunate enough to be in the possession of 2 Sega Dreamcast HKT-0120 Dev Kits. They came in the original boxes. Both kits and boxes are in pretty spectacular condition.

I have bought all the parts I need. I have 2 PC's running windows 98. Both have the SCSI cards suggested for Dreamcast development. They are 800MZ, 512MB memory, 4GB Compact Flash cards for storage. I have bought all the SCSI cables, and terminators... so I feel like I am ready to roll.

What I am looking for is resources to setup a proper Windows 98 Dev environment for Dreamcast development. I was told this is the site to get that info. Obviously there is a wealth of info here, but I was wondering if some long time members could perhaps provide some links as a starting point.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hey, hello :)

First of all, GG for this finding. They look really nice.
This response is a bit "Off-Subject", but i wanted to advise you to dump the HDD that is inside those two units. They can die really soon (because of their age) and if you want to do some work on them, it's better to have a "clean" copy where data recovery work can be done :) Because writing data on the HDD can make some deleted data (who can be builds, sources, etc) to be permanently overwritten and lost. Of course, i talk here just about the need of dumping, not about eventually sharing those dump (You can, if you want aha, but that wasn't the subject).


For the main subject, i think you will need to install the Dreamcast SDK. You can find them on the SDK page of emuparadise. I'm not a pro on this subject so others peoples can probably help you more, i know that some members here are waay more talented with those kits :)


Good luck,
March

If you're going for Win98, just follow the "GetStart.txt" in the root directory of the SDK.
If your going for Windows7/10, just follow this: [How To] Use the Katana SDK on Windows 7/10
(Note that Windows10 has become stricter/more annoying the last few months, so it might not work anymore on Win10)

Perfect :)

In case of need, don't hesitate to contact me in DM here or on discord (March_42#0352) if you need some help on the data recovery subject on those discs :) those units can be a goldmine in term of data for you.

Good luck into making those kits usable again !

After the dump of the drives, a lot of people, including me, will help you to uses kits. I personally own one too so I can you explain various things on them.

Would any of you be able to tell me what the cheapest solution is replace the Seagate SCSI HD? Looking for the cheapest possible solution.

I know there are SCSI 2 SD solutions.

There are ones from this store


Then there is this $35 option on eBay. However it states it is for MacBook. Could it be used?


Thanks

PS: One last question. Any way to get rid of the annoying bats?

@Springbok - Pay close attention to the description of that $35 eBay listing. It's just for the adapter to make it work with a Powerbook. It doesn't include the SCSI2SD v5.5 adapter itself. As for the "PS", go to your user preferences and disable holiday stylings.

Yeah.. I saw that. Sneaky listing. I decided to NOT get the SCSI 2 SD card. I figured I would just dump the drives then continue to use them. I figure the next owner can replace them if they fail. If they do fail before I sell them, then I will replace them.
