I submitted a support request in Retroarch about this problem but was told to make a issue request over here.

SLUS-01415 - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (US)

SLUS-01417 - Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone (CAD)

I don't see the CAD version in Redump:
http://redump.org/discs/letter/h/

Could you dump it there? Then we'd inherit it in the db here.

Otherwise, we could add it manually. Just not optimal.

I can see what I can do about generating a dump.

Oh I have a bin/cue of the game, and it's for the PlayStation, not PlayStation Portable. I've requested an account so I can send my backup.

Oops! Liniked the wrong URL 😄

Don't think you can get all the dump info they need if it's just a .bin/.cue file. May be best to inject it into our dat manually.

Mind adding it to the hacks one here?
https://github.com/libretro/libretro-database/blob/master/metadat/hacks/Sony%20-%20PlayStation.dat

It'll need serial in the rom() part.... Like this...

game (
	name "'98 Koshien (Japan)"
	serial "SLPS-01204"
	description "Baseball is one of the most popular sports in Japan. It was introduced to Japan in 1872 by Horace Wilson, who taught at the Kaisei School in Tokyo. The first baseball team was called the Shimbashi Athletic Club and was established in 1878. Baseball has been a popular sport ever since. It is called yakyu in Japanese, combining the characters for fielding and ball."

I do have the physical disc, so I can do a proper dump of the game (didn't realize how much went into this).

I will let you know here if I was successful or not.

If I am not successful I can add it as a hack. I would prefer to do it properly though since the game isn't a hack 😃

Following Up, I have submitted the dump information to the Redump Forum, don't know if there is anything else I need to do after this.

Nice work! They usually get back to you within a few days. I know the process is a long one, having dumped a few myself 😉
