The method I posted isn't accepted right now. We need better dumping tools for these dual partition UMDs.

Yes, in-game menus is the correct way to check them. Note that some games will crash Dolphin if you have it set to English. Here's one that crashed for me: http://redump.org/disc/29037/

Thanks. Everything looks very good. smile

Thanks, user7 smile. After start DVD Decrypter, can you mention copying the (Region,RCE) info to the user's dump log?
PVD step is also missing. Hopefully DIC will support DVD-Video in the future, so all of these steps won't be necessary.

DiscImageCreator doesn't support protected DVD-Video. Here's an old post I made to explain how to dump DVD-Video discs.
http://forum.redump.org/post/45414/#p45414

Here are additional steps for protected discs:
QPxTool
1) Run readdvd.exe -d D: -o NUL
2) Press Q to stop reading and then copy the three keys from the command window (decrypting disc key, trying player key, decrypted disc key).
Protected disc template:

Region: #,#,etc. (list all)
RCE Protection: No or Yes
Copyright Protection System Type: CSS/CPPM
Encrypted Disc Key: 
Player Key: 
Decrypted Disc Key: 

Yes, that should work. Some Plextor drives may also be able to dump the high density section (I tested PX-708 & PX-755SA).

That should work fine for dumping the High Density section. Low Density section can be dumped with the cd command before using the trap disc.

I used 8 /c2 for C2 error detection, and dumping worked when I tested back in April.

Thanks. I understood OS was unrelated. USB adapter, there are a lot of various adapter, so I don't know yet this is unrelated or not.
Is your firmware the latest? If so, the firmware is probably unrelated. About the device driver, do you install a virtual drive -
daemon tools, Alcohol52/120% etc - or other dumping tools - Clonecd, AnyDVD, DVD Decrypter, DVD Shrink etc. I listed these tools as an example, I don't know these are related or not.

What firmware do you have? I had BC05 but this didn't work.

Yes, the firmwares are the latest: PX-708(1.12), PX-755SA(1.08), TS-H353B(KREON firmware, default firmware was Dell D200, I'm pretty sure it worked for dumping GDROM). I have all of those programs installed except for Alcohol52/120% and DVD Shrink. I also have Virtual CloneDrive installed. They don't seem to cause any problems.

Maybe in 2012 Enker had a PC with IDE connection. I am using usb adapters.

I used Win XP(32bit) with an IDE connection for my PX-708. I just tested it on Win 7(64bit) with a USB adapter and it started dumping right away using DIC.

My PX-755SA wasn't dumping at first, but after rebooting the PC, it worked right away. I tested it with a Win XP PC and a Win 7 PC, and dumped two discs using DIC.

I also did a DIC dump with my TS-H353B drive on Win 7.

Do your drives still fail with the latest DIC version?

I'd add it as Original and mention the red case in the comments.
Edit: If the barcode or cover is different from the Original, then we could add it as Reprint instead.

I don't think redump will use .wud (or .key for the disc key). .iso is used for all non-CD systems.

Wii U discs can now be dumped with wudump.

I've tried to contact GFatha about his dumps with incorrect ringcodes, but I never got any response. If you do read this, then please fix these errors as well:

http://redump.org/disc/41819/ "E11J150B   VLS2EE" bolded part is incorrect
http://redump.org/disc/42442/

Adding a comment is enough for those discs. They include PS3 software(usually a game), so they should be in the PS3 dat.

Why not just always keep the series? The series covers are not always unique/matching (Example1, Example2, Example3).

Sometimes they are just one game, and they would lose a lot of meaning without the series (Example1, Example2).

Moved to fixes section.

Only admins can lock that field, so you would have to submit them to F1ReB4LL or iR0b0t. You could make a topic in the fixes section with the scans, just put something like [ADMIN] in the title.

Redump uses No-Intro's naming, so only articles, prepositions, and coordinating conjunctions are lowercased. The rest gets capitalized.

I added some topics earlier, but some are huge or have lots of unneeded info, which doesn't make adding easy.
I saw fuzzball's dumps, but I thought only DIC dumps are accepted for verifies, right?

So you only want the SuperLite/etc. series or also keep the ones with it on the title screen? I don't see how the game/title series is different from an author, and those aren't always on the screen either.

Sometimes the series is included on the title screen, that's why I think keeping them would be best.
For your example, I think the most complete series title should be used.

Adding blabla series is similar to adding the author's name, so we should probably keep those. Though there are many inconsistent author titles in the db, some have it as alternative or omit it completely.

/a isn't needed for audio cds, DIC uses the driveOffset.txt to detect the offset for your drive. It's confusing the way the app describes it, but /a lets you apply a custom offset to the default one. It's only needed if the disc has data in the lead-in/out areas.

The vol # shouldn't be omitted IMO, but adding both genre+vol looks messy. The PS1 SuperLite games also have a genre on the cover, so we could just add it as a comment.

I don't think there are different vol series, and Table Game seems to be a genre. According to rakuten listings, Mahjong is vol.1. I can't find a spine scan to confirm this though.

I noticed this yesterday, it's fixed now. I made SuperLite 2000 the edition for two of the dumps since the ringcode is different.

I couldn't find the vol # for this dump: http://redump.org/disc/34529/
