I have 2 copies of the xbox version of Jaws unleashed (Europe version), however they both fail ripping at around 40%. Is this just a coincidence, or do xbox discs have a known issue that causes degradation?
One of the discs is clearly rubbish (the print side has some see-through bits), but the other one looks pretty good to me.
Should I try cleaning it and see if it rips, or what? As these are rare, (and expensive) I want to be able to send it back if it is damaged, so don't want to do anything to make things worse.
Edit: Actually, they both have print-side scratches. Back they both go!
But question still stands - do xbox discs have any known degradation issue?
wiggy2k also has 2 copies of Jaws Unleashed that he was having trouble reading (he does have a polishing machine now though. Not sure if he managed to fix them) either that's a coincidence, or there could be another reason for the errors than scratches/degradation (also in light of this discussion: http://forum.redump.org/topic/15998/ori … ergh-disc/ )
Could you share the SS.BIN, and tell us at exactly which sectors the errors start on both discs?
If the errors occur outside of any of the 23 security placeholder ranges, then at least we know that our dumping method isn't to blame.
Sure, re-ripping now for confirmation. SS.bin attached.
Edit: Funnily enough, I've been speaking to JayFoxRox about this on the xqemu IRC. I'll read that thread properly later.
Dumping stutters at: 158????? (it started reading again before I could get the entire sector number)
Properly fails at: 1600642 (41%)
Disc 2 (this one appears slightly more damaged):
Dumping stutters at: 15114?? (it started reading again before I could get the entire sector number)
Properly fails at: 1511458 (39%)
Also, added the DMI.bin, just in case it is useful.
