Best Answer

== == == == The Dreamcast is not backwards compatible with earlier Sega game consoles, so it is not possible to play Sega CD games on a Dreamcast system. However, the Dreamcast's built in music CD player can probably play any audio CD tracks contained in a Sega CD game. Note that not all Sega CD games utilized CD audio tracks for music.

I have a Dreamcast system and was wondering how you can get or use emulators for PSone NES N64 and Sega Genesis?

The great thing about Dreamcast is that it will read a regular CD that you can burn off your computer. All you need to do is find a site with the emulators you need, burn them to disc (in Dreamcast format), and then game on! Just make sure you burn the emulator to one disc and the games to a separate one.

Can you play Sega dreamcast game on a Sega genesis?

The Genesis is a toploading cartridge console. There's no way you could even get the disc inside the game, let alone play it. And no, the Sega CD won't run the disk either. That's like trying to run a Wii game on a Nintendo 64. Companies don't predict what their next two systems will be like and then make an add-on for their current console to play them. Furthermore, the Genesis is fourth generation. The Dreamcast is sixth. The Genesis couldn't run such a game, even if you could get it in. It's far to advanced a technology.
