Hi, are you still working on this tutorial?

Thanks for your information. I was the one who put that note on the wiki page, however I did not know about any of this.

I had a PX-708UF, PX-708UF2 and PX-716 all be DoA with loading CDs. The former 2 would load DVDs though, all of these were from eBay. So I told myself these Plextors just have a really poor laser (olof corroborated that).

I bought a PX-760 on Facebook Marketplace and it came a few days ago, and it reads both CDs and DVDs fine. However it doesn't like scratched DVDs very much.

My PX-W5224TA and Premium-U are very good about reading CDs and I've had no problems with them. The 5224 was previously used to load thousands of discs.

I'll look forward to your update to this thread and we can put info on the wiki.

I was suggested to make a thread to discuss dumping audio tracks with an ASUS or LG Drive.

I had a disc I tried dumping with audio tracks, Reader Rabbit Toddler. For some reason, my Plextor made a bad dump with it before (adding more 0x00 bytes to the end of tracks), but when retrying the dumps match.

I believe Digitoxin also said all his discs with audio tracks matched when dumping with Plextor and LG.

Also, positive offset discs can be dumped with the ASUS using the /mr option in DIC.

Please post any other useful information, and with enough testing maybe positive offset discs made with an ASUS/LG can be added to Redump, and discs with audio tracks can be reinstated.

These Mould SID Codes do not match up. I'm not sure if the correct digit is supposed to be a 0 or a O.

I don't know how I feel about them appearing in all dats, this will seriously bloat the Macintosh datfile in particular.

Mac needs to be split to 68k Mac, PPC Mac, x86 Mac, x64 Mac, ARM Mac. After that dats should look fine even with hybrids.

Is there anyone actually making discs with ARM Mac software? Because ARM Macs were released last year and they don't have a disc drive.

sarami, DiscImageCreator has problems properly dumping a Hasbro VideoNow disc.

As noted by F1ReB4LL, it's supposed to have 18032 bytes of zeroes + 71808 bytes that were cut at the start of the first track. This seems to be a DIC problem.

My logs are below.

Using qpxtool, you can see how much your Plextor has been used. Share it in this thread. My W5224 has been used quite a bit!

I had spaghetti.

By the way, there's a reason that I'm asking on this forum.

Please give me an account for the Wiki, as I want to contribute to it.
