Question about CDDA and Dreamcast homebrew

Chat about the Sega Dreamcast and get cheat codes for it in the subforums.

So, I've recently realized that all of the DC indie releases that I've bought so far have the audio encoded as CDDA. What I'm wondering is: Is this really bad for my GD-reader? 'Cos IIRC, games that stream audio directly from the disk put more strain on the GD-read. I think a lot of earlier SNK fighting games have this problem, and also maybe some of the Capcom ones. IDK that CDDA necessarily means streaming audio, but it's not like a raw CDDA file could actually fit in 2MB sound RAM, could it? I've been playing a lot of Fast Striker, recently, which is why I'm worried. Especially since I think it was way too much Power Stone that killed my drive last time.

Also: is it bad for the GDreader to play CDs from the DC bios menu? That's actually a seperate question, but I might as well include it

While I'm including seperate questions, does anybody have a list of games that stream audio?
