I was archiving my collection of PS3 games and I ran into some issues with multiman. I was wondering if anybody with more experience could help me troubleshoot that and answer some questions.
I've been following the PS3 dumping guide on the wiki, the method worked for all my games except the following game:
My method is the following:
1. Boot multiman
2. Switch to multiman mode
3. Enable "Direct disc access"
4. Hit refresh in the multiman column
5. Under video, I navigate to the game (often labeled PS3Volume)
6. Hit triangle
7. Create Iso
8. Black screen appears with a loading bar.
9. Once over I FTP the game over to my PC for archival.
Now for the game listed above when I get to step 7. and click "Create ISO" nothing happens at all. I get no error message nothing. I tried rebooting the console and trying again but no luck.
By the way if I go to the game menu in multiman press triangle and choose "Create ISO" it seems to work but the size of the ISO looks a bit high to me for a visual novel game it's about 17GB and most VN are like 2 to 6 GB.
Is there a difference between creating an ISO in the game menu and creating an ISO in the video menu? What is Direct Disc Access used for?
Edit: Got the following SHA-1 hash when dumping from the Game menu, it doesn't match the one linked in the page above:
The size of the iso matches perfectly though:
