Ringcodes are useful for predicting possible undumped revisions.

And PVD is useful too. Why isn't there PVD field in psx db?

Re: PVD, what systems need it

'Acorn Archimedes' -- I don't have any
'Bandai / Apple Pippin' -- Pippin = Mac, HFS f/s. I don't see any PVDs for Mac discs, but there must be a reason why these are enabled for Macintosh
'Bandai Playdia' -- yes
'Commodore Amiga CD' -- yes
'Commodore Amiga CD32' -- yes
'Commodore Amiga CDTV' -- yes
'Enhanced CD' -- yes
'Mattel HyperScan' -- yes
'Microsoft Xbox' -- I don't have any
'Namco / Sega / Nintendo Triforce GD-ROM' -- Triforce = Gamecube, can't see any PVDs inside.
'NEC PC Engine CD / TurboGrafx-CD' -- no
'NEC PC-88 series' -- no
'NEC PC-FX / PC-FXGA' -- no
'Palm' -- I don't have any, but these are PC/Win discs with palm soft installers, as I understand, so, most likely, yes.
'Panasonic 3DO Interactive Multiplayer' -- no
'Philips CD-i' -- yes
'Photo CD' -- no
'Sega CD - Mega-CD' -- yes
'Sega Chihiro GD-ROM' -- I don't have any
'Sega Dreamcast GD-ROM' -- yes, but every session has its own PVD, I don't know, whether they always match or not. Same for the multisessional IBM PC discs, btw.
'Sega Lindbergh' -- I don't have any.
'Sega Naomi 2 GD-ROM' -- I don't have any, same as the next one?
'Sega Naomi GD-ROM' -- yes, same as normal DC GD-ROMs

The old MAC discs only have HFS file system, but after they changed to Intel based CPUs they also included ISO9660 file system to the discs.

Re: PVD, what systems need it

I have some original Xbox discs. This is what appears on LBA 16 of Halo CE 1.02:

That looks like a PVD to me.

Supposedly, Xbox dvd discs always have the same time stamp for all discs.
I won't activate it for now, but it has to be approved.
