Apologies for the noob question, but I can't find an answer in the wiki or the DiscImageCreator docs.
I have a number of prototypes for the Xbox and Xbox 360. I have dumped prototypes for other platforms, but not this one.
For the prototypes which are signed for use on a retail system, the standard method (DiscImageCreator xbox [drive] [filename] [speed]) works without issues using a drive with the Kreon firmware.
For the prototypes which require use of a dev/debug kit, DiscImageCreator immediately fails with the following type of error:
LBA[-16581121, 0xff02fdff]: [F:ExtractSecuritySector][L:1131]
ScsiStatus: 0x02 CHECK_CONDITION
SenseData Key-Asc-Ascq: 05-30-02 = ILLEGAL_REQUEST - CANNOT READ MEDIUM - INCOMPATIBLE FORMAT
This occurs on every dev/debug disc I have, regardless of source or if it is a pressed disc or DVD-R. Attempting to dump via Xbox Backup Creator also fails, although its image browser is able to extract the contents of the discs' filesystems. I assume this is because the dev/debug prototypes are not secured in the same way as discs for retail systems.
For Redump-grade dumps of these prototypes, what process should I use? DiscImageCreator in DVD mode instead of Xbox? This seems to work if I also use the Kreon drive, but fails if I use a Plextor DVD drive. I have not had time to burn the DVD-mode dumps back to disc to see if they work.
When submitting dumps of prototypes on publisher-issued DVD-Rs (i.e. sent to game reviewers) is the ring code information still important?
