QUOTE(I am dvs dea @ Sep 14 2006, 11:54 AM)
I have a problem when I try and make copies of my games I merge the ss.bin and iso with ss merger and i have a ****.dvd file but when I open it up I don't have what everyone else has which is "layer break line and image.000. I have get "layer break line" and "****.iso" (**** = title of game i.e. PGR3.iso). Am i doing something wrong? I have gotten to coasters already and don't want anymore. I am using a DVD-16x dvd-rom bdv316c to rip the game (using hotswap) and a NEC dvd-rw ND-3540A to burn the games. I have tried both dvd decrypter and clonecd and have come up with dirty disc error. Please help thanks....
SS merger - ... use 1.7b.
It has four inputs
- the .ISO file you ripped (wxripper/isobuster/whatever)
- the .ss.bin file (extracted with drive-tools or dvd-tools whatever...)
- the .dmi.bin file (optional - ...)
- the .pfi.bin file (optional - ...)
The program then oupts the .dvd file.
You use the .dvd file to burn using clone cd - or whatever else supports manual layerbreaking.
The .dvd file is nothing more than a text file dictating where the layerbreak is and which iso to use, the iso can be named *.tao, *.iso, *.000, *.whateverthefuckuwant... as long as the filename within the .dvd file matches the actual iso that was extracted. Avoid putting absolute paths in the .dvd - keep the .dvd with the iso.
Check my site (link in my sig.) to see how people have done with NEC burners - I'd recomend a Poineer - has yet to let me down anyway. Dirty disc errors - that could mean you're doing everything right - but your burner just isn't quite there. I burned 7 Verbatim coasters with an LG burner - did everything the same with a pioneer - and it worked.
Blah - yeah, any more questions?
