It should be known by now that I messed around with RVT-R discs; hacked a drive to dump them and made them run on a retail Wii. So I thought what's next? Let's kick it up a notch! Burn RVT-R discs, but as a poor student :crying: I can't just buy an RVT-R Writer ... As there are basically no DVD-ROMs that burn RAW and finding a drive that could be easily RE'D seemed to much effort I tried a different way I've found the drive name of the RVT-R Writer in some RVL SDK docs so I thought that just maybe they were sold normally aswell but nope no SW-9585S in the wild but I found a SW-9585C ebay.com, so I asked someone to buy it for me and do some tests. First try running the RVT-R Writer firmware updater no luck "no compatible device found" after some RE'ing of the tool I just patched it to accept anydrive and it happly flashed the firmware to the SW-9585C and big surprise not only did the drive still work (puuh) it turned into a real SW-9585S! Trying to run the sdk tools on it didn't work, at this point I let the drive be sent to me and today it arrived... After some RE'ing it turned out that the tool was looking for a certain VID and PID of the USB2IDE device ( vid 0409 (NEC) pid 0193 ). A quick patch resolved that issue but another one was still there it checked some kind of ID aswell and with my USB2IDE device that part was always 00000000000 I just patched that check out aswell and run the rvtwr tool and ... SUCCESS!! :dance: long story short I can now burn RVT-R discs and I also got 10 empty ones (the drive I got was a "MATSHITA DVD-RAM SW-9585B10008/03/05BZQ2A.2007" <-- inquiry) how much did I spent? with two times shipping (within USA and to Germany) $70. edit: Played a bit more with it, did one successfull write and verify and found out that you can simply read burned RVT-Rs with it, currently dumping one with 5-12mB/s via ImgBurn edit2: tmb helped me to make a RAM dump, he's messing with it now . If anyone needs anything burned(or dumped) just ask me (from looking into the FW and all it seems to be possible to burn NR discs aswell!) I do have some empty RVT-R discs, but no empty NR discs. Note: It is not possible to burn RVT-R(/retail Wii) dumps via the nintendo tools only .rvm/.gcm images.
