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:
the datfile title is "Magazine Ufficiale PlayStation 2 Demo Italia 09/03"
the cover says "PlayStation 2 Magazine Ufficiale - DVD Demo 15"
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?

PX-7XX series reads CDs and DVDs, while the other drives reads only CDs.
Aside from that i haven't noticed anything different between models, the drive reliability all depends on the state of laser wear IMO. Sometimes you may find a better model or a worst model, based on how many discs was readed with that particular drive. I own a PX-708A, a PX-716SA, a PX-W4012TU and a PX-W4824TA.

There's not a recommended model for CD-i games, it's a standard CD and any Plextor drive from the wiki page … patibility can be used to dump it. Personally i've used a PX-716SA to dump a CD-i game without a problem, but like i said any drives from the wiki guide could read it.

Maybe, "No"? Quite a nasty mistake.

Confirmed as a NO.

What tool do you use to check the timestamps?

I think both are DICUI errors.

Yes, it's L330 and A01 reversed. I've fixed the ringcode.

Can you please re-check the dump and reupload the logs here? Thanks.

Can you please re-check the dump and reupload the logs here? Thanks.

I'll add the other demo because it looks like a good dump, but i must ask you to redump and check again the other disc. According to the ringcode data the dump should match the regular version SCED-50065 version already dumped. I found really suspicious that error count too, honestly. If you can please dump it again, just to be sure.

We gave you the dumper status and i've added your PSP verifications.
If you have other PSP and PS3 verifications please add it to the forum, or use the "new disc" form from the main page (under the discs menu) if you want to submit something that's not yet inside our database.

AFAIK, it's not mantained anymore. Personally, i don't use it anymore because DICUI can find the EXE date and the Libcrypt sectors automatically, and after all the dumping procedures, the program will add all the obtained data to the submissioninfo.txt file. When i was using the "old school" DIC dumping with batch files and command line, i've noticed too that psxt001z sometimes may fail to obtain the data from the disc, because the EXE file it's not in the place where the program is searching, usually the root of the disc. You may use this guide … andard_EXE if you still don't want to use DICUI to obtain manually the same data.

Oh, i've noticed that right now. It's the first layer with a 7 digits code instead of 6. The game is cheap, if he don't have the disc anymore i'll buy it again for verification purposes. smile

All the PSP SL games have the exact same pattern Sony DADC A06006666666-B511 so only a number 6 is missing from the ringcode. I think it's ok to add it without checking it again.

You have tested the ULES-00811 PAL version, i've tested the NTSC version CDRomance linked and i found it's actually only in English. Thanks for the info.

Dump added, please as i said before check for Mastering SID and Mould SID codes on the discs. From the next time you can use the "New Dumps" section to add everything that you won't find inside our database and the "Verifications" section to add a verification of a game that you can already found in our database.

Ringcode is incomplete (for both games). Can you add the Mastering SID and Mould SID codes?

Ringcode is incomplete, can you please check it again? There should be another Mastering SID code (similar or equal to IFPI L332) in the inner ring, and there should be a number digit after UPSS-004340A1 on the outer ring.

This is not the V2 version but it's the regular V1, and your dump is underdumped as it's missing the last 6144 bytes. You can try to dump again with PSP Filer?
The correct file size should be 1652424704 and not 1652418560
The correct information you can find it here:

Ringcode is incomplete. Can you add the Mastering SID and Mould SID codes?

The UCJB-98001 demo have two different partitions, one for the games and one for the video on the disc. Please follow this guide to dump it again: … ping_Guide
I'm adding soon all of your previous dumps.

Thanks for your submissions. I'll add everything soon. If you have other PSP missing games or you're planning to buy something else please let us know smile
Regarding your UCJB-98302 submission it's the only one i can't add it yet, because you've only dumped the game partition (that is matching our dump) but it's still incomplete. The UCJB-98302 demo have two different partitions, one for the games and one for the video on the disc. Please follow this guide to dump it again: … ping_Guide
And while doing the ringcodes, can you please check for the Mould SID codes? They're really small but present in all the PSP discs near the metal spindle on the data side.

@Lizard, please read this: (important !!! people assured they read it but still did this mistake)

Everything else you will figure out on your own or with some help if needed, welcome to the staff crew.

Thank you! I'll try to do my best smile

I'd like to request the mod status to help you guys with the pending PSP submissions on the forum. No one is taking care of them, unless someone of us add them with the "new disc" form. It already happened in the past and it's going to happen again in the future, but instead of just submit everything i want to really get my hands dirty and help when i can. And also, this long time to check for the forum stuff it's not helping with the verifications, there's a whole lot of PSP verifications never added, maybe adding them more frequently can be a motivation for other collectors to dump and verify all their stuff. I can understand perfectly that every one of us have a lot of "real life" problems and maybe more important things to do during a single work day, that's why i would like to help you, at least with the PSP, PS1 and PS2 submissions, my favourite systems. I've dumped a lot of games already for these three systems and i guess i should know almost everything about them, i can't be online 24/7 but i'm offering to you my free time because i really want to see this database growing every day. If in doubt, i'm in contact with the other mods so asking for help and learning everything it's not a problem to me.
