How to use of DiscImageCreator

Dumping Guide for CD

    DiscImageCreator.exe cd [DriveLetter] foo.bin [DriveSpeed(0-72)]

For secure dumping, I recommend using /c2 option

    DiscImageCreator.exe cd [DriveLetter] foo.bin [DriveSpeed(0-72)] /c2

About other options, run exe without args to get detail info.

Dumping Guide for CD with swap

Preparation

create the audio trap disc in advance.
(a disc with a hacked TOC of 99 mins audio, burn it with CloneCD or Alcohol 52/120%).
http://www.mediafire.com/?2nygv2oyzzz

  1. Insert the audio trap disc to a supported drive.

  2. Run below. (stop spinning disc)

     DiscImageCreator.exe stop [DriveLetter]
    
  3. Use a pin to press the escape eject button, so the tray will eject (or remove the drive cover).

  4. Insert the disc and run below (or gently push the tray back or put the drive cover back on).

     DiscImageCreator.exe close [DriveLetter]  
    
  5. Run below. (start dumping scrambled img)

     DiscImageCreator.exe swap [DriveLetter] foo.bin [DriveSpeed(0-72)]
    
  6. When dumping finished, the drive tray open automatically.

  7. The drive tray close automatically after 3000 msec.

  8. Read TOC and img is descrambled automatically.

Attention

Compared with Friidump and Rawdump, dumping speed is very slow.

Preparation

To unscramble GC/Wii raw image, put unscramler.exe in DiscImageCreator directory.

Dumping Guide for XBOX/XBOX360 (XGD2)/XBOX360 (XGD3) on genaral drive

Prepare DVD-DL or create the DVD+R DL trap disc in advance.

How to prepare

You need a pressed DVD-DL disc with around 8.5GB data on it

XBOX: Layerbreak larger than 1913776 and the exact size needed (in sectors) is (your_disc_layerbreak - 1913776) * 2 + 3820880

XBOX360 (XGD2): Layerbreak larger than 1913760 and the exact size needed (in sectors) is (your_disc_layerbreak - 1913760) * 2 + 3825924

XBOX360 (XGD3): Layerbreak larger than 2133520 and the exact size needed (in sectors) is (your_disc_layerbreak - 2133520) * 2 + 4267015

How to create

XBOX: DVD (Length is 3820880 or larger, Layerbreak is 1913776 or larger)

XBOX360 (XGD2): DVD (Length is 3825924 or larger, Layerbreak is 1913760 or larger)

XBOX360 (XGD3): DVD (Length is 4267015 or larger, Layerbreak is 2133520 or larger)

  1. Create image file of the above DVD using dumping tool (e.g. isobuster)
  2. Run ImgBurn
  3. Setting LayerBreak manually (L0 sector num is about a half size of DVD length)
    e.g. If DVD length is 3900304, L0 sector num is about 1950160
  4. Before burn the image file, you need to confirm the size is correct
    e.g. (1950160 - 1913776) * 2 + 3820880 = 3893648 => 3893648 is smaller than 3900304, so the DVD+R DL this image is burnt can dump a XBOX disc
  5. Burn image file to DVD+R DL

Dump the disc

  1. Insert the DVD-DL or DVD+R DL trap disc to a general DVD drive.

  2. Run below. (stop spinning disc)

     DiscImageCreator.exe stop [DriveLetter]
    
  3. Use a pin to press the escape eject button, so the tray will eject (or remove the drive cover).

  4. Insert the XBOX disc and run below (or gently push the tray back or put the drive cover back on).

     DiscImageCreator.exe close [DriveLetter]  
    
  5. Run below.
    e.g. Dead or Alive 3 http://redump.org/disc/27157/

     DiscImageCreator.exe xboxswap [DriveLetter] foo.iso [DriveSpeed(0-16)] 292756 467910 686060 830074 999794 1212958 1579164 1719138 2010470 2372562 2527492 2682830 2915560 3065604 3219138 3455656
