Question Editing files on copyed discs, possible?

I have no interest in pirating games, or even burning back-ups (All my games work). But I am interested in editing the files on copyed DC discs. After much work I managed to find and download Jet Grind Radio (I own the real game). I then burned it. It worked fine, selfboot and all. I then copyed from that disc to my PC. I used "Dreamcast Movie Creator" to change the ADX sondtrack. I altered some of the HTML files on the disc, editing the existing JPG files to some graffeti tags I made, so I wouldn't have to go online to use them. And finally I changed some .gif files which appeared to be the charactor icons. The files all added up to about 600 megs . I then burned these files to a new disc using Nero. I hadn't tryed for selfboot, because I don't mind using a bootdisc.

I then tryed booting it using the Utopia bootdisc. The disc in the background changed to the JGR disc, It showed the little loading percentage, and then it took it to a blank screen. Thats all I get.

I've tryed burning several times, and have made about six coasters. I've searched around the net, and found some info about about hacking boot files and using dummy files. However the instructions were in a differant language and Google doesn't translate it well XD.

Is there some step I'm leaving out?
Or is it simply impossible to make the changes I made? It would be uber-cool to play JGR radio with a new soundtrack. Many many thanks in advance.

I looked at my JGR and I think you might need a file called "IP.BIN" on the disc for it to work(not sure on this though, but its worth a try). Any Ip.bin will work but if you want I can email you the Ip.bin from this game. If you want me to email you the file then reply with your email. Its about 10kb. It won't let me post an attachment(can only mods post attachments?).

When you get the file just burn it with the game to to a CD. Don't put this file in any folder just put it where the 1st_read.bin is and those other files.

Post here if you get it to work or not.

When people follow the Echelon self-boot tutorial (possibly even Echelon themselves), the instructions say to copy all files to the temporary directory **EXCEPT** the IP.BIN. The IP.BIN is then injected into the boot-sector. It's not totally important to use the same IP.BIN. You may be able to find an IP.BIN from another game and it will work, or if you use BIN2BOOT to make the ISO image bootable, it will create the IP.BIN if necessary.

No good, I've burned about fifteen coasters. I think I'll just give up. Thanks anyway.
