Shadow Man (Italian version, serial CD194141.05-ITA)

Europe and USA version is SecuROM 1st version (216 errors),  but Italian is not so.

You're right, this SecuROM version is different than the USA, Eur-M3 and German releases.
I've dumped it now with your new version and it's matching the dumps i did with IsoBuster and CloneCD before.

Many thanks for your help!

Hey sarami, i got a problem when trying to dump a PC game with SecuROM. The game is Shadow Man (Italian version, serial CD194141.05-ITA) and the SecuROM version is 2.75.00, i've tried to dump the game with your latest test version and i always get multiple dumps with non-matching checksums, and also the subintention.txt file is always empty.
This might be a problem related to SecuROM protection? I've dumped 4 times the same disc with IsoBuster and CloneCD and i always get the same checksum on the resulting image file, so i think that the disc is totally fine.
I've tested the dumps with my PX-716A and a PX-W4012TU.
Logs linked here, let me know if i can do something about it.

Yes, i also have a Plextor Premium and i've downloaded the latest firmware from the same website. 1.07 it's the latest version you need.

It seems like you're in the wrong place mate, you won't find any iso file here.

Okay, thanks.

@user7 please redump your disc when it's possible.

http://redump.org/disc/71349/ Supposedly a verification of this DVD-V but the hashes are completely different. Please redump and check the disc again.

Well, this was posted by LastCat, and considering that
-1) he always posted game-related audio stuff so i trusted him in this matter,
-2) i know exactly 0 about the Japanese language,
i've just copied/pasted the informations without giving a better look on how this disc was related with the Pokèmon franchise.
If it's not directly related on a videogame, based on your informations, i will remove it from the dat file.

It's not in queue.

Not here.

Actually the number from the database is wrong. I've fixed it, now you should see 1 error instead of 0.

Hi everyone,
i decided to write some simply rules to post verifications and new dumps on this forum board.
There's a lot of confusion on how to do it correctly and i want to clarify everything starting from the definitions of new dumps and verifications.

What are the "new dumps"?
We call "new dumps" the discs not yet added and totally new to the database.

What are the "verifications"?
We call "verifications" a dump taken from a disc that is already in our database, and with a verification we can confirm that the previous dump was 100% correct.

Now, how to submit them correctly?
First of all, for new dumps.
WE HIGHLY SUGGEST TO USE "THE NEW DISC" SECTION.
If you are already have dumper status you can see it correctly on the homepage.
https://i.ibb.co/4gny8rf/Screenshot-2.png
If you don't have the dumper status yet because you're a new user, the only way to add new dumps is through the forum.
After getting the dumper status, of course, you can access it from the homepage like i said already.

If you add the dumps using the new disc section we can help us to process and add everything quickly, because you can save us the part where we need to carefully check again the inserted data before copying and pasting somewhere else, and also cleaning the forum requires some more time that we can use for something else, like add some other dumps of course tongue
JUST REMEMBER: ADD A LINK TO THE LOG FILES FOR THE DUMP SOMEWHERE IN THE SUBMISSION.
No matter where you want to add them. There's plenty of space inside the "Comments" section. Add a link there with the logs to download. Read more about the logs upload after this part.

If you still want to use the forum, or you want to add a verification that can be added ONLY on the forum, please follow some simply rules:

1) ALWAYS add your logs to the submissions!
I repeated this phrase a million times.
The dumps without logs will not be added to the database.

2) USE MEGA.NZ, DROPBOX or GOOGLE DRIVE possibily.

-For various reasons, DON'T USE ZIPPYSHARE (it's locked in almost all the EU countries).
-Don't use any filehosting website that deletes the files after a few days of inactivity. (dl.free.fr, for example)
-Don't use any filehosting website that let you wait for a lot of time between different downloads. (1Fichier, for example)

Please, we don't want to ask you a thousand times for the logs after you have posted something.
You can even use Discord for hosting small files (under 8 MB for free users or under 50 MB if you're a Discord Nitro user) and post the link here.
ALSO, there's a function on the forum called Attachments, if the compressed log files are not too big (under 3 MB) you can directly attach them to your post. Use 7-Zip for best results.

3) Use CODE blocks for your text.
https://i.ibb.co/wWwTZvY/Screenshot-3.png
There's various reasons to do that, but for me it's easier to read than the "normal" text formatting.
It's also easier to copy/paste the data if needed, and we don't have a wall of text in front of us when you're adding an audio disc with 77 audio tracks, for example.

4) Add a link to the corresponding release on the database.
If you have dumped a verification, make sure to search for the checksum of the first data track on the search bar of the website. You should see the corresponding release in our database, copy-paste that link in your submission.
If the search result is empty, you're probably dealing with a new dump. Just remember to not confuse them and don't add a verification with the new disc form.
NOTE: if you don't have the dumper status you won't see Wii, PS3 or XBOX360 games, and of course you research on the website won't return any result, so if you have dumped a game for one of these consoles but you still don't have the dumper status don't worry about posting the link, we'll check it out for you.

5) When possible, add some photos or scans of the discs.
We don't need scans at super high definitions, just something that can help us to figure it out the ringcodes correctly.
It's not mandatory for a dump submission, but of course it's still something that can help us.

6) As a general guideline: Ask for help!
We're here to help you. We want to cooperate to preserve all the discs we can get.
Nothing it's a stupid question, ask us what you want to know.
When in doubt with something, contact one of us moderators with a PM in the forum board or, even better, using our Discord group.

To achieve the best results we expect everyone's cooperation.
This project needs you and your contribution.
Thank you for understanding.

I get an error while adding the dump:
"Error parsing cuesheet in row 6."
This disc will probably needs to be redumped with an updated version of DIC to obtain a fixed cue file.
Try the latest test version please.
Maybe in the meantime iR0b0t and sarami could also check the website (for cue support) and the logs, if also DIC needs to be fixed.

I've fixed the A.E.U.G. vs. Titans title, now it's ok.
For the other two, i've explained my reasons in the "Fixes & additions" topics.

I've dowloaded your latest DIC build, and while trying to dump a PC game i obtain this error (taken from _mainError.txt)

nLBA 93, Directory Record is invalid
nLBA 178, Directory Record is invalid

and of course the copy is interrupting. What is happening here?

cool, thanks for this fix. i've just changed the languages.

Thanks. I've tested the game and actually it's English only, so i will fix the Redump entry.

He already dumped http://redump.org/disc/63462/ http://redump.org/disc/63463/ and http://redump.org/disc/63163/ for us, he have a Plextor drive and can help us with some other new stuff smile Please add him and give him the dumper status.

Regarding the IT names i should say that the titles used in the datfile are not exactly matching the cover and the disc.

For example:
http://redump.org/disc/49580/
the datfile title is "Magazine Ufficiale PlayStation 2 Demo Italia 09/03"

https://crimson-ceremony.net/demopals/ops2mit/it200309-1.jpg
the cover says "PlayStation 2 Magazine Ufficiale - DVD Demo 15"

https://crimson-ceremony.net/demopals/ops2mit/it200309-2.jpg
the disc title is "ups2m demo italia 09/03"

I haven't added them myself to the database, i've just sent them when i was not a mod yet, but they can be corrected of course.
We should decide to put the cover name or the disc title as the main name inside the datfile.
My opinion is that the cover title may be easier to order and it's easier to get a consistent file name for all the entries. Starting from "PlayStation 2 Magazine Ufficiale - DVD Demo 01 (Italy) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)" and going on. Or, if we want to take an "international" title to be consistent with all the other entries, the title may be "Official PlayStation 2 Magazine Demo 1 (Italy) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)" for example.

Good to know, i'll try to dump my laserlock games with my PX-716SA when i'll be back home next month.

We can only accept dumps from original disc sources, dumped with the methods explained in the wiki section of the website. What is the game that is not listed in the wiki page? Any info on the serial number?
