Hi, you mention Beta 1 twice with different contents? Do you mean Beta 2 for the last one? But it seems the contents are already correct for that one? http://redump.org/disc/51884/

Sorry for the typo. I meant Beta 2 for the last one. I added version number of MSN Gaming Zone.

I made a mistake in the disc contents section. It should be as follow:

Not normal.

There were no C2 errors though. Can it be considered as a good dump?

It's the line number of source code. No problem you ignore it.

Thanks! This particular disc outputs huge subError.txt file. Is it normal?

I also noticed that the subError.txt will differ every time even for the same disc. The sub files always match though.

Another thing I don't understand: The _drive.txt file DIC 20180304 outputs always has a value in the WriteSpeed sections, while with DIC 20180419 the WriteSpeed is always 0KB/sec. Why was the write speed set when I'm just reading the disc?

========== SetSpeed ==========
        RequestType: CdromSetSpeed
          ReadSpeed: 1411KB/sec
         WriteSpeed: 199KB/sec
    RotationControl: CdromCAVRotation

Thanks!

Hi Sarami!

Just curious what the link number at the end of each line in the _subInfo.txt mean? I dumped the same disc with DIC 20180304 and 20180419. The bin files match but I notice that the _subInfo.txt are different.

You're welcome to message me if you have any questions, I wrote the guide.

Thanks! I just bought a PX-760A and a PX-755A a while ago and starting dumping my PC games recently with DIC. Will need to learn more about dumping though. I have little knowledge of CD data structure such as sub channel. Is there any detailed guide somwhere that can help me have a comprehensive understanding of CD and DVD?

Advertisement?

Of course not. I just came across it and wanted to know if it is capable of replacing CloneCD or CD Manipulator. I never heard of it before, nor do I anything to do with the developer. Sorry if my post broke any rules here. Should I delete it?

I just came across this program when searching other stuff. Has anyone tried it before? How does it compare to CloneCD or CD Manipulator (which it's claimed to be base on)?

https://www.rizonesoft.com/downloads/carbon-cd/

Description from the official site:

Use Carbon CD to make backup copies of your music or data CDs. Copy (Clone) most CDs in just a few mouse clicks. Create perfect 1:1 copies or save your CDs to your computer. If you are familiar with Clone CD, you should feel right at home using Carbon CD. The biggest difference between the two is that Carbon CD does not support DVDs yet (Still working on it).

Carbon CD is based on the CD Manipulator code created by Y. Kanechika. Originally in Japanese, It now supports English by default. I upgraded the project from Visual Studio 2005 to Visual Studio 2010 and cleaned the code. I also upgraded all the graphics, worked on skinning, beautified all the dialog boxes and sorted all the bugs I could find. Let me know if you find more.
