You're right about one think though
I managed to change the image's mode to 'Data Mode 1' by copying its contents to UltraISO and rebuildig the ISO, alas, I still get a black screen.
I thoguht of adding a dummy file in order to increase the TOS but eventually I decided not to, perhaps CloneCD and Alcohol could help me out with this but it probably won't work as the original cd has a 'Mode 2/FORM1/2448' and it cannot be changed if I do 1:1 copy.
Of course it won't! It's an original disc :cool: The thing that most concerns me is that the original disc might be scratched (and I don't want this to happen since it's a rare game) and my laser would be strained since we're talking about a Compact Disc and not a DVD-Rom.
don't worry since it's an original ps2 game your laser won't have trouble at all
If someone here managed to backup this game onto a DVD and is willing to help me as I already trashed two quality Verabtim DVDs is most welcomed.
By the way, SEGA had a really bad tasted when they made both manual and the disc in a grey color, beh...
I got to know this little application called DVDScan 3.7 which patches the SCES_501.01 and the IOPRP23.IMG to DVD so it'll baypass the console's CD check to a DVD. Thing is, I still get this error with CDVDGEN that prevents me from building an IML image ('too short legnth 600000' error), any further help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all of your fast replying!
I guess I'll have to give it a try then (here goes another Verbatim media). I'll give a report once I get back from work. :chinscrat
One final note: I got the NTSC iso version and it worked on the PS2 emulator whereas my original PAL disc didn't, so I tried to apply the REZ.CVM on DVD scan and it didn't find anything while my PAL found this line at the very same file: 0x088113398 sceCdMode Patched for dvdr. Interesting...
