Yes it has this hidden SYSTEM.LSK file (good to know), but DIC is not detecting it and then ignoring /sf switch. Maybe because it's marked hidden? I am trying with 5224TA, maybe tomorrow I try it with 716 but I think result is the same, I had this same issue with the Skidoo Racing.

:EDIT:

Yes tried with your exact example, no protection detected and /sf is ignored. Infinite hang on error sectors.

I can't seem to dump discs with ring protections with DIC, it will read a bit into the errors and then just hang forever. I tried /sf and /ss , /sf just can't find any protection on exe and fails, and /ss hangs forever.

I am able to dump the discs with alcohol and clonecd, but they don't do any error checking at all and make bad dumps.

Please advise. Disc is The Settlers III Mission CD, and uses some kind of ring protection, but it is not RingProtech or Laserlock.

I finally ran across some discs with this naming scheme, audio rips of mine. This is total crap and Jackal is correct, the meta data goes in the comments with a link to the disk via href,  not in the filenames. This must be reverted.

Didn't he just fix that in test version?

That's fixed it, thank you.

I'll fix them all when I verify my MechCommander 2 dump.

Also had a strange bug with two securom games now, where after reading the last sector DIC wraps around to -3 and loops infinitely.

Well there is no way to scan for them presently, once we have a good tool for such then I won't. For now I will to do research. Also with the DVD 1/2 the disc was different, so something is up with that.

Maybe it's a bug because the files are over 2GB ?

More findings, we have success on getting the twin sectors. Now we need to find the positions on the physical media for both.

The reverse dump was also 3 blocks too short, not sure what is up with that.

I expected differences , but not 1/2 the discs, we need to examine more. I did XIII disc 2 over night, seems descrabling didn't work due to a bug, here is the cmd output.

The image was also not descrambled because the offset was not corrected. Attached logs (except error because it was 3+ gb).

I am unable to unscramble the image with unscrambler, will try something else. :edit: this was due to the 0 sector not being completely read.

Still dumping XIII Disc 2.

Me either really.

I would like the db to be open to more than just games myself, but most other people are opposed to this idea.

okidoki, thanks.

Dumping a tages DVD now, will take all night probably. Will check it in the morning.

This still doesn't work.

Cool, so both CD and DVD added now? Will check it asap.

I am also trying to dump an OEM version of Shadows of the Empire, it is hanging forever at:

Checking SubQ adr (Track) 10/14

and I seem to have missed this one too

seems I missed the logs for this one too

Seems I missed the logs for this one, can you upload again.

Also please check the ring, there should be tabs in it.

OK that method takes too long for me and there are several ranges, it takes hours to get past the error blocks while Alcohol/CloneCD only take about 10 minutes. I managed better with Isobuster manually doing seeks from about 200 sectors beyond the last error and back to the last sector after the errors.

I used bus hound to capture what the intelligent error sector scanner does, I can post the log if you want.

I tried to capture what DT does when dumping tages too but they are cloaking it somehow from Bus Hound.

Use my old tool for this:

OptiARC seems to give the best results for RingProtech...

PX-716 did better than Optiarc actually , was able to read one more sector without a billion retries.

I'm not sure it's RingProtech at all though, could just be some other error protection.

I was unable to dump a RingPROTECH disc with DIC, it just hung forever on the errors. I was able to copy the disc easily with Alcohol, although that is not ideal. However I think it's possible to implement the Intelligent Error Scanner it has, CloneCD had it also and was also able to dump the disc.

The game is Ski-Doo X Team Racing (USA)

here is the Alcohol dump log, it seems similar to LaserLock.

I raise the error retry up to 25000 with my 4x read batch file, so yes it's fine.

Nope, 716 and 760 (and others) just have a firmware bug, most safedisc will work fine but some will fail. This is for CD SafeDisc only. I recommend a PX-W5224TA or Premium 1/2 as these drives can dump all. Keep the 716A for DVD and LaserLock.

We are currently not saving DPM. You can use either Alcohol or Daemon Tools.

These sector protections we are currently trying to find or create a solution for. In the mean time Dameon Tools can dump them for you own use, but the images are encrypted so not useful to us.

What is the problem with SafeDisc DVD?

Could you also make it so it doesn't abort on C2 errors or a switch for it, sectors may be correctable with ECC.
