Topic: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

Hi, I know this is kind of a noob question but I can't seem to figure it out myself sad I'm trying to dump a PC game for the first time. Before, I've only done console games (PSX, PS2, GCN, WII), where you could easily enter the various checksums into the fields at the bottom of the page. For PC games, however, there are no such fields, so where am I supposed to put the checksums?
I think I've read all the relevant guides but I still don't know how to do this sad  That "ClrMamePro data" field must be what I'm looking for, it's just that I don't know what to do in ClrMamePro, hence I have no idea what to enter there. Please shed some light on this.

TIA, amarok smile

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

hello amarok
to fill this field you don't need ClrMamePro.
database will parse specifically formatted strings there (eg CMP output),
but it's enought by such pattern:

size 388790304 crc 94ef1ff8 md5 3b6932e4d5f49ba1b9f16e71f7e3509a sha1 3dd27e476804e2623a7a51e219808d0e1d7f499b

Track 01 is 1st entry; Track 02 - next ..and so on
number of entries must match to nr. of tracks in cue-sheet

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

Ah, thank you big_smile And I won't need to create a cuesheet if the disc only contains a single data track, will I?

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

CUE sheets are indeed needed !!!
They contain information to data type

PX-760A (+30), PX-W4824TA (+98), GSA-H42L (+667), GDR-8164B (+102), SH-D162D (+6), SOHD-167T (+12)

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

But aren't they only created by EAC for CDs containing audio tracks? How do I get them for CDs with only a data track? IsoBuster has never put out any cue sheets for me yikes

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

Need moar help... I have a PC game here (Warcraft 2) with 1 data track and 16 audio tracks. I tried to detect the gaps with EAC on 3 different drives with all 3 gap extraction methods and got different gaps for every drive and extraction mode! Method A wouldn't work on most drives, but B and C always did. I could try even more drives but I guess I'd only end up with more alternative gaps. What am I supposed to do?

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

>But aren't they only created by EAC for CDs containing audio tracks?
sure, EAC is useless for data track images only wink

>How do I get them for CDs with only a data track?
If you wanna use IsoBuster, then do right click on "CD" -> "Extract CD <image>" and after extraction it will ask you for CUE creation, or you can look for DATA TYPE in: Track01 -> Properties -> Advanced -> there you will see Mode1 or Mode2

>and got different gaps for every drive and extraction mode!
Use:
- Gap detection Method A only, nothing else, other methods are in most cases inaccurate !!!
- Detection accuracy: secure, before gap detection set drive read speed to slowest speed !!!

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

Thanks for your kind help, iR0b0t. I already have another question tongue
I want to remove the pregap from Track 1 as described in the guide. I downloaded resize, but it keeps telling me that it's incompatible with my 64 bit Windows. Is there anything I can do about that?

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

use IsoBuster "extract from ... to" function

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

It's better to use reMove (http://www.mediafire.com/?q1mbksntoje) like this:

remove -size=150sec "Track 01.bin" temp.bin

150sec if pregap is 2.00 seconds / 150 sectors (you can use also bytes or samples).

Then delete temp.bin if everything is ok.

when it's working on 64-bit system, okay smile

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

It works, I just tried it. Thanks to both of you big_smile

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

I've come across a CD with quite ridiculous gaps. It's from 1994 so I suppose it's not a copy protection issue. I've obtained consistent results with two drives. What do you say -- do PC games often have strange gaps? They certainly don't look normal to me.

Have you tried using different gap detection methods in EAC? If you continue to get the same gaps on multiple drives with different gap detections then I guess the gaps would be correct. I'm not too sure but I think this might be common of older PC games.

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

how do they relate to tracks?
maybe they mark where audio cuts off and silence starts?
i.e. when you move gaps to the next track is the last sector of previous track the last one with samples?

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

Subs are needed, can't say anything without them.

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

Would CloneCD subs be appropriate? Or should I use another tool?

Yes, they are ok, but configure CCD as said here http://forum.redump.org/post/15631/#p15631

Well, here's the sub: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?yzmjlr5mx3n.
Thank you for your efforts so far big_smile

Re: PC dumping, where to enter CRCs?

So, did anybody have a look at it yet? I've just ordered a more reliable drive which should arrive in a few days, so I might give it a try then again if the subs don't yield correct gaps.
