Ringcodes are missing tabs, and more importantly, the layer 0 mastering code has one digit too many.

A lot of discs in the DB (particularly for PC) are compilation discs containing many games, or coverdiscs. For people, such as myself, who enjoy researching the differences in various released versions of games, being able to search for discs with certain terms in their "contents" field would be very helpful. Is there any way to do this?

Just submitted a matching German disc via the new disc form.

Unfortunately OEM Plextor's do not support the 0xD8 command that is required for Redump's methods. You can see a list of supported drives here.

This is a PC/DVD-Video hybrid. It contains a VIDEO_TS folder that allows the Animated Series to be played in a DVD player, but the packaging is primarily for the game, only mentioning the Animated Series on the back of the box. I don't believe there are any other discs of this kind currently on Redump, and I don't think it's possible for one disc to be in two categories(?) I would assume that since the box is clearly for the game rather than the DVD content, that this would go in IBM - PC compatible, but I thought I'd mention it here in case anyone disagrees.

Bump, KailoKyra has a lot of discs which could be very valuable to redump! Please create an account!

A reminder that redump has never, and will never, breach any copyright laws, and any such activities are conducted by individuals and not this site as a whole. If he is a lawyer, it means nothing, because this site is not infringing on any rights or breaking any laws.

Sure! I am just waiting for the confirmation that the new format is being accepted by emu and what not.

I've submitted feature requests to the two main DC emulators in active development (redream/reicast-libretro). Inolen (the redream developer) says he will add support if "people want it". It's more likely to be implemented when we fully switch over.

Emulators, both software and Optical Drive Emulators that replace the disc drive in a real Dreamcast, do not currently support Redump's GDI dumps as the format was simply not designed to accomodate for the way we store our dumps. It's important that for our dumps to be useful, at all, that we store it in a more appropriate format that emulator developers will be willing to implement.

Did you use cdarchive to read backwards with enough read retries?

How many read retries are required on average?

Latest releases (20181022/20181020) are missing from github.

Additionally: ringcodes that do not contain SID codes are not necessarily bad (if the disc itself does not have the codes on it, which a few do not), so should not automatically have yellow status.

Thanks for the tips! Someone posted a PX-W4824TA on eBay for £20 (apparently in working order apart from a broken rubber drive belt, which I should be able to either fix or just open with a paperclip), and the SATA to IDE adapter recommended by ajshell.

Still looking for a drive. Could anyone from Norway act as an intemediary and help me get this drive? I would pay for the drive and the shipping costs to the UK.

Hi! I would like to obtain a Plextor drive in order to dump various CDs that I have and CDs that I will obtain in the future (I will probably not be able to dump many until late December however). I live in the UK. What would be the cheapest way of obtaining a drive, and as the drive will probably be IDE, would an IDE to SATA converter work to connect it to my computer?

On the dumping guides, Disc Image Creator is used to dump CDs. Is a Plextor drive absolutely required for this or is there some other way to dump discs suitable for redump with other drives.

Additionally, I noticed that for all multi-track CDs, each track is in a separate .bin file. I have not found a tool that can dump CDs in this way, and I would like to be able to.
