Ok I'm not panicking, it's about the Sega CD game "Panic!" (US version).
Ripping its data track I ran into a problem.
Analysing the disc layout with EAC, a track 2 pregap of 1:74 is reported.
So, according to the redump guide, I remove 149 raw sectors from the end of track 1 (resulting image version 1 = 108158 raw sectors)
But when I analyze the resulting image with CDmage, an error is reported in the very last raw sector (severity "low" though).
This doesn't happen if I "play dumb" and remove 150 raw sectors as if there was a pregap of 2:00 (resulting image version 2 = 108157 sectors).
What are your thoughts on this? Obviously I don't want to keep or submit a corrupted image.
1) keep and submit image version 1
2) keep and submit image version 2
3) repair image version 1 with CDmage, then keep and submit it
Both IsoBuster and CDRWIN report a track 1 length of 108307 raw sectors. So, assuming the 1:74 pregap as the guiding principle, the logical conclusion would be to keep image version 1 (108158 + 149 sectors attached to next audio track = 108307 sectors). However, that would mean to keep a corrupted track 1 image...
