231096 - 230946 = 150 = 2sec = pregap. Try to lower it by few hundred sectors. DIC dump is bugged if error range crosses tracks & pregap area...

Ohh, I didn't know about that. Thanks!

Jackal said above that you can cut out a track from the .img with a hex editor, do you know how that works?

I used HxD Hex Editor. It's a simple copy & paste app. You don't have to use it anymore (use new CDArchive).

reentrant, would it be possible to specify drive speed in CDArchive? I'm missing 6 sectors right now and although my drive can extract them first try, they don't match EccEdc. Maybe they would if it was reading them at a slower speed?

I'll look at it during the weekend. Should be possible...

I have a DVD IBM PC game with what could be Ring Protech. Any advice how to dump it?

DIC does not support those discs yet, it will abort reading as soon as protected area is reached.

One could use isobuster and replace those sectors by '0x55' bytes but we have not deceided yet if it should be '0x55's or can be '0x00's for example. If we consider '0x55' bytes then sarami could probably code DIC with that.

My talk to sarami about one of those discs:

I never came back to this topic though.

DVD's don't have bad sectors (afaik)

Here's is some info for DVD and BD (correction codes): http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/do … p;type=pdf

DVDs have RSPC code and can contain bad sectors but this has to be done in factory. I don't know if home devices can burn discs with incorrect correction codes...

@iR0b0t, LoStraniero91
Please tell me the disc title, region and barcode if possible.

Backcover does not have a barcode, it must be on the big box, which i don't have.

This? https://www.amazon.de/Vidis-Restricted- … 0002E4MH6/

I don't know how the big box looks like, but i think its the correct one.
Its a german seller, they should sell german version.

One of the sellers from this listing has pictures which match my disc.
Seller's name: GameShop Eichhorn

It should be in general the correct listing.

The barcode is 4891779103179 .
It's also available on medimops.de.
There are other discs (CD's) with similar LL21 ringcodes and Ring protection: http://redump.org/discs/quicksearch/rin … code/ll21/

Thanks info. Do these discs have the ring on the different file like http://forum.redump.org/post/63714/#p63714?

They are also inside large exe files IIRC, but the IFPI LL21 are different type than "Unnamed CD.IDX" because you can't dump them in DIC and the last sectors have to be dumped with cdarchive like Ring ProTECH.

Ok. To be recognized these unnamed protection, I'm coding that reads the filename from external text file.

Btw, It seems CD Media World simply calls these unnamed ring protect "Physical Errors".

@reentrant
To Compare with my tool, I'm running your tool using proring disc.
Your tool says.

D:\!redump\reentranttools\CDArchive.exe -x g -d "D:\!redump" -e 52767 73504 10 3 10 fb D:\!redump\reentranttools\test.bin
Extracting error range forward: 52757 - 73514
Read sector: 52757Extracting error range backwards: 52757 - 73514
Read sector: 73514
Extracted all sectors

But no files extracted. What should I do?

"D:\!redump\reentranttools\test.bin" needs to point to the bin file that was dumped before where the ring sector was skipped and replaced with 0x55. CDArchive.exe will try to extract all 0x55 sectors from the CD.

Wow, I forgot about this topic wink

If you're using version from 23th reply in this thread specify cue path as last argument!

Its version doesn't work for me. I don't know why...
I used the 2nd reply version and confirmed my tool and your tool outputted same hash. Total errors of proring are 755.
