Topic: ATTN Dreamcast Dumpers

If you have successfully dumped a Dreamcast game with the guide posted here, then please list which drive you used and what the mainboard or motherboard brand and model was in the machine you used to dump with please. We are trying to narrow down the needed hardware to be able to do this task.

iR0b0t :
Drive = Lite-On SOHD-167T
MB = ASUS P4B
OS = XP Pro w/SP3

also on...
Drive = Lite-On SOHD-167T
MB = ASUS P4GV-MX
OS = XP Pro w/SP3

I have tried on 3 Dells, 1 Compaq and 2 Frankenstein machines (A-Bit MB in one, not sure about the other). None of these have worked. All with fresh installs of XP Pro w/SP3. Any additional information that can be provided here would be great. Right now it is looking like the combo of an ASUS P4* mobo and the Liteon drive seems to work pretty well.

Re: ATTN Dreamcast Dumpers

Drive: Samsung TSSTCorp SH-D162D w/ Kreon Firmware (through an IDE-to-USB connector)
MB: MSI MS-7358
OS: Vista64, up-to-date

Re: ATTN Dreamcast Dumpers

amarok, cdrwin is accepting your connector? What type of connector is that? Do you have the exact type name?

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

Re: ATTN Dreamcast Dumpers

Nope, I'm using IsoBuster (+CD-Bremse to slow down the drive). Works pretty well. I could never get CDRWin to work...

No idea about that thing's name, the packaging is long gone smile All I can say is that it's by a company named DeLock, and on bottom side there's a sticker that says "Ver:108B0".

Re: ATTN Dreamcast Dumpers

okay, then i don't need its name

not sure if isobuster extracts them correct, did you ever verify any dumps on this way?

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

Re: ATTN Dreamcast Dumpers

Yes, a bunch smile All my DC dumps were made that way. Why do you think IsoBuster wouldn't do it right? ^^

Re: ATTN Dreamcast Dumpers

because i had inconsistent results back then when i tried to use USB2IDE-Connector

i will try it once again now, maybe i was mistaken

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

Re: ATTN Dreamcast Dumpers

The biggest problem is that IsoBuster has no option to limit the extraction speed. I use CD-Bremse for that, but it only goes down to 4x. So I extract everything twice (usually in chunks of 50,000 or 100,000 sectors), or more often if I get inconsistent results. Worked pretty well so far, but it does take time smile

Re: ATTN Dreamcast Dumpers

okay, i can now say, my connector suckz, i can not speed down the drives even with cd-bremse, so the drive tries to speed up every time and aborts some when.

seems your connector is any better though  smile

does it look like that?

Re: ATTN Dreamcast Dumpers

That's exactly it smile It's a cheap ass thing but it gets the job done.

Re: ATTN Dreamcast Dumpers

I have one simular to that and it still didn't work. I'm waiting for a buddy to get me a system with an ASUS P4 series mobo. Will test it then. If that doesn't work, then we need to look at possible hardware revisions on the Liteon Drive. Mine is an HP OEM refurb
