interesting..!!! never seen those files or heard of this info anywhere. seems as if no one whats to take on the challenge of cracking this and echelon moved on to PS2 scene.

maybe there is a hidden TOC..?? can you extract the beginning of the data track at all??

I've been trying to extract the 2nd Session, ISO buster starts just fine and when it gets to around 5% it hangs a bit and later gives me the following error:
------------------------------
Unreadable Sector
Sector 15070 couldn't be read
Error: 03/02/01

Then I'm given the choice of wether:

Ommit Sector
Replace with al zeroes
Replace with user data all zeroes
Replace with erroneous sector
-------------------------------

I was about to choose the last option, when accidentally I moved ISO Buster's error dialog window, to my surprise the main ISO Buster windows now showed Session 2 which has Track 2 at LBA 11702 with a size of 127.55 MB (133,744,640 Bytes) !!!!

So I proceeded and chose the last option, about a minute later I got the same error but now with a 15701 sector, then 15702, 15703, at this point I checked the always apply this options, so the program could manage this automatically, it's been running for a while now, the drive is still working and I'm really tired, I'm gonna leave the computer on and get some sleep, cause I'm starting to collapse on my desk......

I'll report the results in a few hours.............

thats great! at least you found the real size.

something else you can do is make a cdi image of the cd using DJ. then cdirip it, then isofix it. you should get the real toc if it was hidden.

I left ISO Buster trying to extract the contents of the CD, yesterday it was about 22% complete, today its about 50% complete I'll leave the computer on until it finishes and see what happens, I just hope my cd-rom drive survives this........

I'm sorry for the delay...unfortunately I have bad news.....

ISO buster only managed to copy around 62 megs of data then it couldn't go any further......at least my cd-rom survived this stressful test.

Any ideas?
