Topic: Mega CD anomalies
It seems that EAC can't find track #2 pregap for discs that have 1 data track + 1 audio track, it always reports pregap 0.00 for track #2. Today I tried dumping Nostalgia 1907, and while EAC gives no pregap, I found the regular 2.00 gap when checking sectors with Isobuster.
1) should I resize track #1 or not? Even if EAC doesn't get any gap, Isobuster should append it at the end of first track anyway, but I'm not sure
2) should I add 2.00 pregap to track #2 manually? EAC shouldn't attach a pregap it doesn't recognize, but again I'm not sure.
It is interesting to note that Nostalgia 1907 and Earnest Evans have the same disc offset (first time it happens to me), and the scrambled data is identical, both are dated November 1991, maybe they were mastered from the same machine? Earnest Evans pregap was 2.00, so shouldn't it be the same for Nostalgia 1907?
I tried dumping Shining Force CD, and I got pregap 2.02 for track #2, and pregap 2.01 for every following track, but I encountered only 2.00s and 1.74s until today, what should I do? Is EAC trustable for this disc?
