Hey Redump! I'm a huge advocate for software preservation, and have a small collection games and titles on disc that are admittedly already in your database. I'd love to become a member and verify the titles I do have as well as (hopefully) contribute some that you need if I come across them!
That said, I'm interested in learning more about disc preservation and the methods involved. I recently picked up the ASUS BW-16D1HT and downgraded the firmware per the dumping guide's recommendation. Interested in picking up a Plextor later on when I come across a good deal.
Accepted or not, I will continue to support the work your community has done, and the resources you've put together. :)
