It's a DVD-Video disc that just happens to have some Xbox compatible demo files on them, so DVD-Video is the primary format.

IIRC PSP dumping is different from normal dumping. Instead of reading a range of sectors, the PSP is accessing the data through the filesystem.. So the last sectors of a PSP dump could be erroneous and some tools are known to create bad dumps. I don't think the PSP Filer developer can do anything about this, because he's restricted to what the PSP allows? Maybe there are any optical drives that can be hacked/modified into reading UMD discs? tongue

This fix dump DOES have bytes where limbo43's dump didn't?

So it contradicts earlier findings, where the bad dumps had data and the correct ones didnt.

I'm going to do some gravedigging here, so I apologize in advance. I recently came across the issue of trying to detect SafeDisc v3/4 without ProtectionId. There seem to be no public instructions out there on how these protections are actually found. If anyone here has even the slightest conceptual idea, I'd love to hear it. Thanks in advance!

AFAIK the only way is to scan the game .exe

sorry but this really isn't the way to submit your dumps.. plz include DIC logs for all dumps, and preferably scans/pictures. And new dumps can be submitted here: http://redump.org/newdisc/

I noticed that the ringcodes are different..

Maybe the "Combo disc; works on Xbox 360" thing has something to do with it?
Are there any other cross-compatible discs like that in the db? Maybe worth double checking those too.
Hope limbo43 will be back soon, so we can get this resolved.

For some reason audio zero (checked the scm file) sectors were descrambled. That 75 sectors are just scrambled zeroes. Is it expected for DIC: May 18 2017 23:08:37 ?

Audio zeroes can't be scrambled or descrambled, these are zeroes.

If the Nexy's dump had 75 scrambled data sectors there, that should be examined. Maybe worth to dump the disc with cdtoimg_d8 and check that area.

The .scm file is the same thing as a cdtoimg_d8 dump? The problem was with the descrambling process.

IIRC Yellow Book specifies that for an audio to data transition, the data track pregap should start with 1 second of audio silence.
Dreamcast dumps where there's audio tracks followed by a data track in the high density area should have this too.
Scrambled audio data doesn't make any sense. The dreamcast dumps have zeroes too, so I fixed this.

@reentrant, maybe you could check for other PC dumps that might have this wrong.


(9 replies, posted in Fixes & additions)

I wonder what caused darksabre76's dump to be different? Do different DIC versions produce different dumps?

I still think it has no place in a database.. it's not really relevant how the dumper obtained the disc. It would be better to make a wiki page or something to credit contributors.

The correct EXE date is 2006-11-09:

I removed these comments, because we need to be strict about who is the dumper and who gets credited.. some weeks ago, people were being credited as dumper in submissions, because they were the ones lending games to a dumper. This is not allowed, only the person who dumped the disc should be credited as dumper.

It's okay to thank people somewhere who are lending out discs, but let's not fill database fields with this info.

I have a few Gamecube games (all already on the db), but I don't have a Wii to dump them. However I have a compatible CD drive that works with Rawdump/Friidump. I already dumped all and every hash matches the database.

The problem is, as the wiki guide says, I can't get the BCA. So my question is, can I post the dumps even without the BCA?

Yes, as long as you include all the other relevant data (ringcodes etc.)

Didnt read all the posts, but when there's multiple versions released of a game, and one of them is undumped, the version can be added to the filename for the one that is dumped. Is that what you mean with New Super Mario Bros. Wii?

Even with the offset detection fixed, it will still produce potentially bad dumps with missing data because there is no overread into lead-out?

@sarami / others

It has come to my attention that some dumpers are using non-Plextor drives with DIC for their CD dumps.
The first issue that I see is the offset detection:
For this dump: http://forum.redump.org/topic/18020/add … 2002-demo/ DIC detects a write offset of -12.
But for this one: http://forum.redump.org/topic/18021/non … piel-demo/ it detects:

========== Offset (Drive offset referes to http://www.accuraterip.com) ==========
     Combined Offset(Byte) -24696000, (Samples) -6174000
    -   Drive Offset(Byte)     24, (Samples)     6
           CD Offset(Byte) -24696024, (Samples) -6174006
    Overread sector: -10500

So I wonder if the -12 offset is even correct?

Other risks of course include incorrectly descrambled / cut off data. As soon as a disc has audio tracks or mastering errors, the results can no longer be trusted.

It would probably be better to block CD dumping (or add warnings) on drives without D8 (at least by default, without a special parameter) and also add a check to the DICUI GUI to only allow dumping in D8 mode? If you don't add such checks, then people might think that they can just use any drive to dump, and if these dumps are added without checking, the database might soon be riddled with bad dumps.

Plz add some scans/pictures.

And what's the difference?

Some sectors on his dump have zero bytes where the other dump has data.

Only admins can see disc with red status.. Which game is it?

NoEDC backups can't have EDC, EDC can only appear on remastered pirate discs. I would leave his dumps as yellow, I don't think it's fine to just delete them without any proofs.

When images are burned and then dumped again from backup, EDC is added. This is why you can't trust EDC variants without proof that they were dumped from original media.

The problem here is that the old dump is from asn007. This guy already had some dumps with EDC differences before (Namco Museum Vol. 5, and also Namco Museum Vol. 4 but that one just happens to be redumped now from a later German print that has EDC). Don't know if that's a coincidence or if some of his dumps were made from backups.

For Namco Museum Vol. 4 + 5, I removed him as a dumper and replaced his dump info with known good dumps, because we can't be sure that his dumps were from original media. Done the same now with this dump.

All his other PSX dumps happen to have have multiple dumpers: http://redump.org/discs/dumper/asn007/system/psx/
