    Hello! You may know me for my project over on the downloads called Prototopia. Recently I have purchased a PlayStation portable development unit. Inside the regular size DVD tray I found a very early alpha of what became rock band unplugged. It is in Alpha stage, and very very loosely put together. Unfortunately whenever I put this DVD into my PC it's not recognized. So I'm curious if there some type of format that these type of units used that I'm unaware of. If someone could give me some type of info on this that would be great! I would like to release this sometime this week.

    It should be recognized by your PC. I dont know why its not. I think anyway, maybe not. Try using DVDisaster, it dumps a lot of the more picky things. PM me if needed, I can tell you how to get the dump working after that, or do it for you, it takes a few seconds.

    Does the development unit recognise the DVD?

    I don't know how a development unit works, but if it mounts the DVD drive contents as a UMD for the PSP (or visibile in any other form FROM the PSP unit), maybe you can dump the contents from there? Either in ISO or file format.

    What about the tools used to dump non-dev UMDs on non-dev PSPs? They might get confused about the bigger size of the disc, or not even run on a dev device, but it's worth a try.

    The thing is a PC drive should have no issue dumping the disk. Ive helped others do it plenty of times, and Ive done it myself quite a few as of late. DVDisaster works. Just set path, hit read.

    Yeah, tried DVDisaster. No luck. The test unit reads the disc fine.

    Something funky going on then. It should work fine in a PC.

    Try ImgBurn: main menu -> verify disc, and copy text here, example (PS2 DVD)

    Code:
    TSSTcorp BDDVDW SE-506BB TS00 (USB)
    Current Profile: DVD-ROM
    
    Disc Information:
    Status: Complete
    State of Last Session: Complete
    Erasable: No
    Sessions: 1

    Supported Read Speeds: 4x; 6x; 8x
    Current Read Speed: 2,4x - 6x
    
    TOC Information:
    Session 1... (LBA: 0)
    -> Track 01  (Mode 1, LBA: 0 - 1774703)
    -> LeadOut  (LBA: 1774704)
    
    Track Information:
    Session 1...

    Linear Density: 0.267 um/bit

    First Physical Sector of Data Area: 196 608
    Last Physical Sector of Data Area: 1 971 311
    Last Physical Sector in Layer 0: 0
    

    With IsoBuster: file -> DVD -> perform a surface scan. It will take a while, to be sure that disk isn't physically damaged. I have PS1 discs that are damaged and not readable by pc, but will play fine on real hardware before randomly freeze somewhere. (maybe depends on read speed)
    Code:
    No physical errors encountered.  Your disc is still in good shape.
    If it fails - repeat on another DVD/BD drive. Also try to open this disk from Ubuntu/Lubuntu (live dvd version that bootable from usb stick prepared with "Rufus" tool). In some cases Windows just can't read some discs.

    Random idea, do you have access to a modded ps3? i would try dumping it with multiMAN if you lucky it might see it as a psp disk if not maybe a ps2 or a data disk...
