PS3 Disc Dumper

This is a small utility to make decrypted copies of the PS3 game discs, suitable for use in emulators.

It does require a compatible blu-ray drive and existence of a matching disc key to work.


  • Compatible blu-ray drive
  • Disc must have decryption key, either in redump database or in the IRD Library
  • For binary release you might need to install .NET Core prerequisites
    • See Supported OS versions and .NET Core dependencies sections in documentation
  • For source release you will need to have .NET Core 3.1 SDK installed on your machine

How to use

  1. Put ps3-disc-dumper executable in the folder you want your dumps to be in (GUI version has configurable settings)
  2. Insert a PS3 disc in the compatible drive
  3. On Linux open terminal in the folder where you put the binary
    1. $ chmod +x ps3-disc-dumper to make it executable
    2. Mount the disc (either through file manager or manually $ mount it to /media/...)
  4. Start the dumper
  5. Wait for it to complete

By default all files will be copied in the folder where the dumper was started from (.\[BLUS12345] Game Title\).

You can pass an optional parameter with the path if you want to dump in a custom location. This is mostly useful when ran from sources with $ dotnet run.

If you have custom key or IRD file, you can put it in local cache (.\ird\ on Windows, ~/.config/ps3-disc-dumper/ird/ on Linux).

Logs can be found in /logs/ on Windows or in ~/.config/ps3-disc-dumper/logs/ on Linux.


There are different ways to get the dumper work:

  • precompiled binaries
    • make it executable on Linux, then simply run it
  • running from sources:
    • $ git clone
    • $ cd UI.Console
    • $ dotnet run
