ISO's or zipped content?
 
So, I've downloaded a couple of iso's and noticed some are not able to mount (windows 10 feature) or open (using 7zip). When using WinCDEmu I could mount those images and dump an .iso from the mounted images which I could open using 7zip. So there's a tip for those who have trouble mounting them... (the file size seems to decrease btw!... are they raw images or something?)

Now back to my observation: I've been looking at various sets and the DMS-LHA sets seem to be missing some entries and have entries which are not part of the set. If you look at the AmigaCDLists directory on DMS-LHA 23 (aka CD23) you see the CDxx.dir files. You see that DMS-LHA 01 is actually CD02.dir ... and DMS-LHA 05 seems to be of a total different set But I have not figured out which set.

Ok, my point... I seem to have CD01 - CD20 and I would like to upload these to the ftp to share them with all of you. But my question is... shall I upload them as an archive of the files on the CD's or dump them to .iso format and upload those?

Oh and I also noticed OldAmiga1-7.dir are on the ftp as "Amigacd 1 - 1992-06 - 1993-11 - bbs" etc...

What CD serie do you have from CD01 to CD20 ? :blased

chip 31 March 2018 07:10

Just as info DMS-LHA05 is listed in OldAmiga5.dir in the AmigaCDLists directory

The serie that is listed as Cd01.dir upto CD20.dir :D

chip 31 March 2018 08:14

So, a "no name" serie :p

jrom 06 April 2018 20:59

So... the first 5 cd's are imaged. Now to get an upload account.

chip 07 April 2018 04:20

Thanks for the uploads :p

jrom 08 April 2018 11:24

The cd's without reading errors are on the ftp now. CD08,12,16,17 have reading errors... I'll try some recovery modes in IsoBuster and/or CDRoller on those cds...

Edit: seems 15 was ok after all

Thalion 08 April 2018 14:00

Even if it doesnt work. Just post them nevertheless. Maybe someone else has more luck or at least the readable content can be used.

dlfrsilver 08 April 2018 14:34

some files were shared between collection, so it will be possible to restore the broken files.

jrom 08 April 2018 20:59

I've uploaded CD16 with 6 bad sectors (zeroed out) and CD17 with 33 bad sectors (zeroed out). Also an other disk labeled TWR-CD... don't ask what that stands for... I honestly don't know :D

mark_k 08 April 2018 21:18

It could be worth trying to read bad discs using a different drive. Also use some utility to reduce the drive read speed, perhaps that could help?

jrom 10 April 2018 20:52

I tried it on the cdrom in my desktop pc but no luck. CD08 with 89 bad sectors and CD12 is up.

jrom 10 April 2018 22:30

Also uploaded AMIGA COLLECTION 1 t/m 5 to the ftp

chip 11 April 2018 05:36

Thanks jrom also for AMIGA COLLECTION

It's a nice set of 5 CDs full of games :spin

@jrom
thank you for your efforts to share the content of your CDs.
For my personal use, I use the DIC program for dump my CDs:
https://github.com/saramibreak/DiscI...eator/releases
The ideal is to use a Plextor drive but it should work with other drive ...

Before, I used ISOPuzzle but it was abandoned for a long time unfortunately:sad

jrom 11 April 2018 15:19

I still have a few pd and coverdisks... How do I dump those for tosec? Maybe check first if they are missing?
