Sadly that didn't work. It reacted the same way just with the error about not having /c2 set.

Shoot it keeps failing when trying to check if the drive can read the lead-out and definetely has an issues when dealing with multi-session discs throwing up a bunch of ILLEGAL_REQUEST errors directed towards the end of the disc.

I just tested out with the latest test version you just posted and trying to set the /be flag to force pack mode for dumping CDG discs and it still sets the drive to dump in d8 mode.

Ok so this might sound a bit crazy but hear me out as far as a possible new feature. So I was using Perfectrip to dump one of my Karaoke discs trying to get the best copy of the subchannel data I could so I was comparing them in a hex editor and realized the actual P-W data was actually matching across every dump using the Packed subchannel reading mode but the Q subchannel data had little errors here and there. I know DIC has the ability to import CloneCD sub files to export an info file about it but what about allowing you to import a CloneCD subchannel file and run the same subchannel correction code on it with the same flags as with a real disc to have DIC correct the Q subchannel data from these dumps I'm making with Perfectrip to have perfect CD+G dumps or as perfect as can reasonably be expected without a lot of manual checking?

The test version test_20190508_190259 (currently the latest test version on the first post last I checked) has a bug when dealing with SafeDisc protected games. When using /sf it will appear to detect the SafeDisc protection but at the end of the dump with try and reread the bad sectors as if they were not supposed to be there as part of the copy protection.

I did a couple of multi-session tests with my PX-W4824TA even with the latest test build and when it hits the second session the drive times out with that semiphone or what not error but I did manage to get it working on my PX-716A drive. The one disc I tried which is a demo disc from McDonalds for a Treasure Planet game seemed to output the cuesheet correctly as far as I can tell.

If you remove the /c2 in the command line it will dump without checking for c2 errors BUT it will dump with errors and all so it's not for if you want a good dump but if you are trying to just recover an old CD it will let you get an image you can try to recover at least some of the data off of which is what I did a while back using the same method.

Ok not sure if this has been mentioned but I noticed the new /74 flag in the newer version of DIC and was wondering how one would use it exactly to dump the ring data. I tried it just as part of the normal dumping but it didn't seem to do anything. Do I have to use a swap disc or something?

Oh as far as I can tell it isn't an issue but then I'm no expert. I was just making an observation based on what they were saying above.

I have seen in the disc text file that it is switching to BE mode when reading the CD+G discs even when I have the /d8 mode set in the command. I think it might be doing that for any disc that is audio only which I guess isn't really an issue but it does also say it's reading subchannels in raw mode.

From one of the discs that wasn't detected properly as a CD+G disc that I tested the new /g command on.

Thanks I'll try that and see the comparison though PerfectRip isn't exactly a quick solution with having to configure everything before hand where I have premade batch files that I wrote for dumping different discs in DIC. I just edit a separate file to change the drive letter if needed and the name of the dump and then open the batch file for what type of disc I'm dumping and let it do it's thing. I really need to start posting all these dumps soon but I want to get scans first so I have as much documented as possible before submitting especially with the ring code.

Oh I was assuming it was checking the first sector's subchannel data. Maybe have it check a certain range of sectors at the start of the track or as I also suggested have an override option to force it to treat all tracks as if they have CDG subchannel data. The only real issue other then the zeroing out of legit subchannel data would be the several hundred megabyte subError file as it zeros all those fields out. Also I know there is subdump and I am using it for the discs that were not correctly detected by DIC but it's just really time consuming especially with something like what I'm doing that isn't really for redump...unless redump starts accepting licensed Audio CDs or Karaoke discs. Also I was very impressed with the way DIC handled the CDG discs it did correctly detect and wasn't expecting it to touch the P-W fields at all but it did actually fix several of them on those discs and when I burned the result the disc seemed to play perfectly with no glitches in the graphics from the Karaoke player I was playing the burned copy on. If you do manage to fix the detection or add the override option (or both even just in case) then I can see DIC having another purpose at preserving karaoke CDs especially ones where the graphics doesn't show up right due to very minor scratches on the disc.

While this isn't necessarily redump related as what I'm dumping isn't for redump but just for my own personal archive I have been using DIC to dump a few Karaoke discs I have and I noticed that while for some it correctly detects they have CD+G on them for others it doesn't and as a result it zeros out all the P-W subchannel data since the sector it's checking for CD+G data doesn't have any data in those fields so it's assuming there is no CD+G data at all on the disc and is seeing anything in those fields as an error. I would suggest checking further in to the tracks for CD+G data or adding an override option to force CD+G detection in these cases.

ok, at least it works with Captain Rainbow

requirements:
~15 Gb hdd space
~15 minutes

command
wiiUnscrubber.exe wii.iso

P.S.
Pro_Golfer_Saru_JAP_WII-TMD works

Thank you for making this. I had a few non scene files I got my hands on that were scrubbed and I needed a way to unscrub them when I found this. It worked perfectly...except for the ones I later found had been rebuilt to remove the update partition which caused this tool to crash. It would be nice if this tool would output some text to say what it's doing so I'm not staring a a blinking cursor wondering if it's working. Also just by the nature of how you wrote it I found I can just drag the ISO to it and it will run without having to open the command prompt and type anything.

Apparently to some people redump is seen as a torrent site. Something might need to be done to educate people about what redump really is on the home page.

Ok so I have an old PC game disc that has 3 games on it and 2 of which have different versions shown on the label and I have no idea what to use as a name for this disc. Does anyone have any suggestions?

(Click for larger image)

[EDIT]
I'm taking irobot's naming advice from the IRC. The image you see is a down scaled 300px scan but the larger image is the original 600px scan. Maybe I should rescan without that white spec on the top left of the disc.

Couldn't you just use the Game Doctor? It's suppose to buff out the scratches on a CD and/or DVD?

I live in the USA and it was sold at Software Etc. & EBgames when it was popular a couple of years ago.

I have both the manual and the automated version of that thing and it works nowhere near as good as advertised. In most cases I've had no improvement whatsoever.

Thanks a lot my friend this is a real good emulator best of all for Playstaion, all my redump.org PSX games thati tested so far worked flawess.

Now anyone knows a good N64 emulator? I already try the Project64 but all games i tried dont work.
I hate those plugins.

I tried several games like Mario Tennis, Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time and Killer Instinct Gold, some games work with a lot of glitches.

Or if anyone knows a configuration that works with most games, please tell me.

Thanks

Unfortunately when it comes to N64 emulation Project64 is about as good as it gets. I agree that the whole plugin system that was introduced with PCSX was a horrible idea since every emulator that used it since has not only been difficult to setup because of the number of plugins you have to configure but it also causes horrible compatibility with many games. I've notice that emulators that do not use any type of plugin system work many times better then ones that do and sadly there isn't a single N64 emulator that I know of that does not use plugins.

Thanks for your advice Ghost i will search and try this 2 programs. big_smile

I dont mid about the pakkiso'd bin/cue, all the redump images that i have its in this format, and i like it.

Just be sure that you only use one or the other since they tend to conflict with each other sometimes. Daemon Tool Lite is completely free and should work just fine (just be sure that you DO NOT install the ad-ware filled toolbar that it prompts you about during install). Alcohol 120% on the other hand is a paid program which you would either have to buy a key for or risk using a crack. The one thing that it has over DT is that it can rip and burn discs as well as use images in it's virtual drive.

Wow we made that goal fast. Maybe we should try for 10100 dumps by the end of the year.

I guess I'll have to get off of my lazy butt and post all those PS2 and PS2 games I've been holding out on...I think I have maybe close to 20 or so.

You can always see the latest posts from all forum sections in the RSS feed. That's how I keep up with everything.

Tomb Raider III is listed as having Illegal TOC on some copy protection web sites (don't remember which ones as I saw this a long time ago). My guess is the reason why it was considered Illegal was because disc copying software at the time this copy protection was released was unable to handle ripping the second data track. These days disc copy software gets around this issue by raw ripping the disc even when it's only ripping a single track at a time.

[EDIT]
Also bin/cue does support this as I've run my own image of Tomb Raider III from the bin/cue dump I've made of it. It might not have with virtual drives back then but now it's no problem for them.
